Updated Subscribe2 Widget

I’ve done a bit of minor tweaking to the Subscribe2 Widget-Hack–I really only changed some display problems, the main widget works just the same. The big news is that I finally figured out how to use the SVN repository at wordpress.org/extend/plugins. It’s just a big fancy way of keeping track of the different versions and it allows you to take advantage of the upgrade notification introduced in WordPress 2.3. Anyway, the newest version of the Subscribe2 Widget-Hack (1.2.1) is available here. Let me know if there are any questions.

  1. I can’t seem to get the widget to work. I am not sure what is wrong. I tried the Subscribe2 widget first and that doesn’t work so I tried your widget and that doesn’t work (nothing happens). Any suggestions? your widget is in my sidebar.

  2. What is not working about it? Does it show up in your sidebar? Did you add the page with the subscribe2 token in it, per the Subscribe2 directions? Give me a little more detail about what isn’t happening and I’ll see if I can help.

  3. I’m trying to figure out how to hard code embed this widget – could you give me a example of the code needed to embed this into my template.


  4. Hey Ken, is your widget still functioning by any chance? I just installed it and it doesn’t seem to send out any emails (whereas the Subscribe2 form on the page is able to do so, so it shouldn’t be email settings…unless they can’t coexist?)

    I think I’m on WordPress 2.9.2. The widget appears, I’m able to type in an email, and click the button, and it seems to reload the page, but no emails received.

    Any thoughts?

  5. JJ & Elena,

    I’ll try to find some time to check it out – I’ve got a baby coming here in the next few days, so that will alternatively give me some time to sit down and try to take a look, or give me zero time to do it for a while. The last I checked there was a widget that was included with Subscribe2 – is that one not working for you all either? Mine was only developed because there was no widget available at the time, and when you tried to put it in the sidebar there was a conflict with some other plugins.

  6. Ive got the widget to work, but the buttons for subscribe and unsubscribe are butted right up against each other. Is there a work around this to add space between the two buttons and make it look a little better/easier to use?
