Word Press Email Notification Plugin v1.5 has been released.
Changes to this version:
+ Updated to grab certain vars from WP to reducing the amount of config settings and to make it compatible with WP 1.3 (hat tip to Neil Stead)
+ Added HTML email option
Blog post can be found here.
HI all … I’ve installed this program, and it works fine except:
when the notification it sent, it splits the “from” line into multiple email addresses … so, for example, although my settings have my email address as the “from” and “reply-to”, when the email is sent, it has the name of my blog instead – each word as an email address:
Fred McKinnon’s Blog – Life, Faith, Music
… the email has:
From: fred@fredmckinnon, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc, etc.
I am only getting notifications for comments – not when I put up a new post. Other people who have subscribed to my notification arent getting notification either. Is there some config switch somewhere that I’ve missed?
I emailed the author and he says it should only email notifications for posts, not comments. Perhaps someone can think of a hack that would send out notifications for BOTH comments and posts??? hint hint.
Is there a way to change the plugin so that people do not have to confirm their subscription? Believe it or not, a number of people have subscribed to my BLOG but then IGNORED the confirmation email. They just donâ€™t read it all the way through and donâ€™t realize they have to click the link.
I suppose these are the people whose VCRâ€™s blink 12:00. 🙂
But still I want to accommodate them. Any way to remove the confirmation step and just sign them up when they post their email?
