IncSub Blog Plugin – email subscription

[Update: Thanks to Lindon for pointing out that it should be comments.html (not.php or wp-comments), edited and now correct!]

Hey, this is even better, WordPress plugins seem to work as well for IncSub Blogs!

What I’ve done to start with is to install the Subscribe to Comments plugin first which allows commentators on your blog to get email updates of further comments on the post… IMO this is the most valuable comment tool (bar Kittens Spaminator) going.

To turn it on all you have to do is go to ‘Plugins’ and activate it… then in the comments.html file (under Manage > File) you need to do this:

“3) Add the following inside your comments form (between your <form></form> tags) (in comments.html):

<input type=”checkbox” name=”subscribe” id=”subscribe” value=”subscribe”>
<label for=”subscribe”>Subscribe to comments (Email field must be filled in)</label>

WordPress will then tell you that it hasn’t worked… but it has!

Any more plugin requests or suggested great functional plugins send them along, this is sooooo easy!

  1. I absolutely agree and cannot believe that this isn’t a standard feature of more blogging engines. With so many people using typepad it’s hard to follow the comments on a typepad blog as I generally cannot remember every blog that I recently commented on.
