Version 8.2 contains the enhancements and bug fixes listed below include fixes for a minor security vulnerability (see below for more details).

Filtering the opt-out Authors

Version 7.0 of Subscribe2 introduced a new feature where Registered Subscribers could opt-out of receiving notifications from specific authors on multi-author sites.

Version 8.0 has improved on this a little by allowing site administrators to use a filter to trim down the list so unused author accounts can be removed from the list. To do this you simply code a small plugin extension something like this:

// 's2_authors' is the names of the new filter
add_filter('s2_authors', 'remove_author');
function remove_author($authors) {
	// our function takes an array of author objects as the input
	// you can then cycle through the array and remove any that you like on either 'ID' or 'display_name'
	$i = 0;
	foreach ( $authors as $author ) {
		// example use an if statement to check if author ID should be removed compared to a known ID
		if ( $author->ID == 1 ) {
			unset($authors[$i]);
		}
		$i++;
	}
	return $authors;
}

Themed User Subscriptions

One of the things I get asked about reasonably frequently is theming the “Your Subscriptions” page for end users.

If someone registers with your blog they can get additional control over their subscription by selecting which categories on your site they want notifications for and also the format of the email notification. It seems that some of you are not happy that this requires access to the WordPress administration menu area and you want to deploy the subscriptions form on the front of your site.

Well, there is good news. A developer has picked up on this request and is offering an extension for Subscribe2 that delivers exactly this functionality. And all they are asking for it is $2!

If this is something you want, go grab it here.
