WordPress Plugin: Subscribe to comments

Subscribe2 2.2.2

Now that’s a very neat plugin. Allow your users to be receive an email notification whenever someone adds a new comment to a post they’re watching. It’s pretty much like a “subscribe to thread” for forums.

And here is another plugin that does the same thing.

Think of it!

This is an extremely powerful tool that makes your users coming back again and again to your blog. Viral. Free. Automated. What more can you ask for?

A must for serious traffic building!

The more I think about it, the more it seems the gap between blogs, forums and regular websites is getting thinner day by day. We want to publish more information, faster, in a more user friendly way and let everyone know about it and interact with us.

What would be an appropriate term for the mega-websites of the future? Information vortals? Hmm…

WordPress: Send Private Email plugin

By default, WordPress lacks the ability to send emails to registered users. This plugin was created to fill the gap by allowing you to send emails to your blog users.

More details are available on the WordPress Send Private Email plugin page on my blog.

To prevent abuse this powerful mass mailing functionality is available only to users with Administrator role. This can be changed quite easily if need be, for instance to allow all Editors or greater to use the plugin. Just let me know if you need it, and I’ll modify it for you.

Once activated it adds a new submenu called Write Private Email under the Write menu in the blog management area.

Simple, powerful and very convenient to use.
