[Resolved] Subscription confirmation message missing

  • Hi,

    When someone subscribes at http://www.janetwise.net/blog/subscribe-to-posts/ they get a confirmation email, and upon clicking the link in the email, they are taken to the same page with a modified title. Instead of “Subscribe to Posts” the title is “Subscription Confirmation”. This is fine, but there is no message indicating something like “your subscription has been confirmed”. It just shows the form as usual, so people don’t know if it worked. Similarly, upon confirming an unsubscription request, the title is “Unsubscription Confirmation”, with no message. How can I display such a message? Even better, can the subscribe/unsubscribe form be hidden on the confirmation pages?

    Thanks!

    THat’s weird and doesn’t happen on my sites. Have you used the subscribe2 token to place the form? Have you tried with another theme and checked for plugin conflicts?

    I did use the Subscribe2 token, and you’re right the plugin conflicts with a very popular plugin called Simple Facebook Connect: http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-facebook-connect/. I’m only using the Publisher module with that plugin. Any idea how to resolve this conflict? Thank you!

    @nothin7,

    Have you tried the official Facebook plugin?

    The official Facebook plugin doesn’t have the features I need, and it also does not work very well, as evidenced by the poor ratings and unresolved support threads. Can you point me in the right direction to resolve the issue with Simple Facebook Connect? What functions might be being overridden?

    @nothin7,

    From just reading the code I think it might be the sfc_publish_auto_check() function in the sfc-publish.php file. That code seems like it might over ride the default post transition code in WordPress.

    Hi again. I just discovered that the same bug presents itself when WordPress SEO by Yoast (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/) is enabled. Clicking the emailed confirmation link displays a page with “Subscription Confirmation” and the signup form again. No “You have successfully subscribed!” message.

    Both of these plugins are extremely popular, and I imagine many people are giving up on your plugin thinking it doesn’t work because one or both of those two plugins are enabled. Can you provide a solution?

    @nothin7,

    This seems to be down to having Add Open Graph meta data checked in the Yoast SEO -> Social page. Disabling that returns Subscribe2 to full working order.

    As it’s down to a setting in the SEO plugin I think it needs sorted out there.

    @nothin7,

    I’ve identified a workaround in another thread you posted to, for completeness I’m posting here too to advised it’s now on my plugins conflicts page:
