This version contains the following bug fixes and improvements:

  • Improved case sensitive SQL queries to avoid issues on some server configurations
  • Introduced option to check the notification override button by default at Settings->Subscribe2 – Appearance
  • Extend support for for multiuser sites to include WordPress 3.0
  • Converted both Widgets to the WordPress 2.8 API – check your widgets after installation
  • Improved the Colour Picker in the Counter Widget
  • Integrated the Counter Widget into the Settings page
  • Removed several functions from the code for WordPress versions prior to 2.8 (2.8 is now a minimum requirement for Subscribe2)
  • Removed legacy tinymce files that are no longer required
  • Added code to prevent duplicate Public Subscriber entries
  • Introduced TABLELINKS keyword for digest type notifications

One of the new features in WordPress 3.0 is custom post types. These are defined using code by developers and bloggers with a knowledge of PHP to allow WordPress to be extended to more of a CMS solution.

Subscribe2 can be enabled to send notifications for your custom post types with the code below. I’d suggest you add this code to the plugin you are using to create your custom post type.

function my_post_types($types) {
	$types[] = 'my_post_type';
	return $types;
}

add_filter('s2_post_types', 'my_post_types');
