I have a few people that want to follow this site, but either don’t have twitter accounts or don’t want to follow RSS. I’ve been investigating email notification systems, and have some results to report.
On a website I host for my family, I’ve been using Post Notification. It still works, but the author has basically said it’s not being developed anymore, so I was reluctant to use it here.
I then tried the Simple Email Subscriber plugin. It worked fine on my preview site, but wouldn’t work on this one. I also had to make a number of changes to the plugin to correct the English being used.
So, now I’m using Subscribe2. As far as I can tell, it allows the functionality I require. If it stops working, or stops meeting my needs, I’ll try something else, but until then…
