Version 6.1 of the Plugin is now available for download. This version has been tested on WordPress 3.0.1 and requires at least WordPress 2.8.

Version 6.1 contains the bug fixes and requested feature improvements listed below. This version also introduces a Subscribe2 shortcode that allows greater flexibility in the way the Subscribe2 form is deployed. See the ReadMe for more details.

Still no joy? :

If you still really want my direct help then make a donation. In the last year I think I’ve spent over 300 hours (about 2 whole weeks without sleep time) supporting people for free and I simply cannot continue to do this.

  • Fixed a few small typos in the inline code comments and email subjects
  • Fixed a bug where Bulk Management changes to move all users to Plain Text Full content would result in blank settings – reported by Sean @ GetSatisfaction

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');
