Subscribe to Comments Activated

August 24th, 2007

I’ve added a plugin that allows you to opt for email notification when someone posts a comment after yours in any one blog entry. The email includes a link which allows you to manage which entries have notification status for you, so you can turn any post’s notifications off if you wish. Seems to work. Let me know if you have any problems.

    I think you should use smaller images for your link board – say favicons with text via mouseover.

    Also – feedback like “Your comment is being moderated…” would be nice. No feedback is like talking to a Japanese person who is giving you the silent treatment.

    Hmmm… very interesting. I tested the moderation message, and it worked for me, but several users posted multiple copies of their comments as if they had gotten no feedback. I was assuming that they simply didn’t see the feedback for some reason.

    Then I tested it again–this time using a different browser. With Safari on a Mac, you get feedback. With Firefox on a Mac, you don’t. I am assuming that it works with some browsers, and not with others. Very, very strange. I will have to check that out–and perhaps even swap the comment script with another one.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    It would appear your RSS feed is still reading only the old site. (And yes, I tried to update… I am only moderately slow… really!)

    Sean: Hmmm… I am not familiar with feed readers. When I go to my new main page and click “RSS” in the browser address window, I get the RSS feed just fine. Is it possible that your feed reader is automatically going to the main feed for the web site and ignoring the “wp” directory?

    hmmm where is the new RSS button? I tried using the link you gave earlier.

    In Safari and Firefox, the RSS link is in the URL box/bar where you type in the site’s address. Look on the right-hand side of that box and you’ll see an icon that says “RSS” (Safari) or a little icon that looks like a dot with two waves emanating from it (Firefox). Have not tried Explorer yet–I think only IE 7 would see RSS feeds, anyway.
