This is a simple hack I wrote in a similar situation. It will display all the Subscribers in the Author dropdown on edit/add post/page, from where you can select any one you want. I think it should work for you... add_filter('wp_dropdown_users', 'MySwitchUser'); function MySwitchUser($output) { //global $post is available here, hence you can check for ...

Hook into transition_post_status, fetch the users and send an email to all users. Sample code, not tested: add_action( 'transition_post_status', 'send_mails_on_publish', 10, 3 ); function send_mails_on_publish( $new_status, $old_status, $post ) { if ( 'publish' !== $new_status or 'publish' === $old_status or 'my_custom_type' !== get_post_type( ...

The best WordPress plugin for email subscriptions to your blog without using third party services like Feedburner is the WP Responder Email Newsletter and Autoresponder Plugin

There are often issues with setting up email subscriptions. Hosting providers are very tired of spam and often put harsh restrictions on email rate and volume, especially for cheaper hosting plans. In practice such feature is often implemented with help of external service. FeedBurner is popular for this, because a lot of people use it for feeds anyway and ...

To be frank, my customers and I have only had miserable experiences with all of the various alternatives. Had I found a suitable one myself, I wouldn't be developing one in the background. :-P (And no, the one I'm working on by no means ready yet.)

Even I placed a lot of questions back to your question, I would like to share the following idea: This basically sounds to me that users are subscribing to a post (maybe of a custom post type and with a custom taxnomoy). So to replace the comment form with a subscription form and to use comment "subscriptions" as "post subscriptions". That for re-using the ...

I've used cforms II for that in the past. It's way more than what you need, but it's really powerful, so it means only one plugin to implement the subscription, contact, and other forms within the site http://www.deliciousdays.com/cforms-plugin/

Try Subscribe2 plugin that provides a comprehensive subscription management and email notification system for WordPress blogs that sends email notifications to a list of subscribers when you publish new content to your blog and each user can select which categories he wants to get notifications from.

I found Mailpress to be a far superior option to the others I tried (Post Notification and Subscribe 2). It has many options, it's own set of additional plugins, its own themes, and the option to sync subscribers with your userbase. 10/10!

Have you thought about using feedburner? I'm using feedburner to handle subscribers. And it emails subscribers once a new post is made. You should be able to import your subscribers by emailing the csv file to feedback@feedburner.com and informing support that you are moving to use Feedburner.

Right Now jetpack provides only way to embed subscriptions as sidebar widget. Registering a new sidebar would be a better Idea to do so, and this will not take more than few seconds. Step 1 - Register a sidebar for jetpack Just drop in this code somewhere in your theme's functions.php file. register_sidebar( array( 'name' => 'JetPack in page', ...

You can skip sidebar step, by using the_widget() function in template to display instance of widget you need.

If you're willing to use an outside provider, you can add the tag feed to Feedburner. First get the tag feed: http://www.example.com/?tag=tagname&feed=rss2 Then to to feedburner.com and create a feed, then enable "Email Subscriptions" (under the "Publicize" tab). I've done this, and it works well.

Self-hosted blogs use RSS for subscriptions. As far as "liking" goes, that only makes sense within the quasi-social-network environment of WordPress.com.

You cam use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/ which is by Automattic and has the desired Subscribe/follow functionallty.

You can directly query for users having a specific user_meta value. This will gain some performance over loading all the users first and then iterating over them and loading the meta_value afterwards. Have a look at the WP_User_Query class. If we are speaking of larger numbers of mails you may be better off to use a full-blown newsletter plugin (that ...

This is similar approach to @brasofilo. But only works in the edit post screen, rather than quick edit, and includes all users (not just authors and subscribers). /* Remove Author meta box from post editing */ function wpse50827_author_metabox_remove() { remove_meta_box('authordiv', 'post', 'normal'); } add_action('admin_menu', ...

You surely copied the content directly from the Microsoft Word. Because that MsoNormalTable thing I found in the texts when copied directly from MS Word. Copying directly from MS Word takes some formatting along with it. So, you can try any of the methods either : Copy the texts from MS Word, and paste them via Paste From Word paste button from the WP ...

As TomJNowell implies, you would achieve this by integrating the Feedburner API with the WordPress Shortcode API in a plugin. However, the Feedburner APIs have been shutdown since October 20, 2012 and this is no longer possible. As Google continues to deprecate support for Feedburner, your best course of action is to pursue alternatives to the service.

Sure it is... its a 3 step process.. Check if user is logged in return check and create an if condition return the BIG image link or not at all (right?) The code (not check for user level since subscriber is the lowest level) if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { echo '<a href=""><img src="LINK TO BIG PICTURE"></a>'; } else { echo ...

This is a code linked by @Innate in a comment (solution) to his own question, I've just adapted a little bit and tested in WP 3.3.2 (function wpse39084). It will show the subscribers in posts Edit and Quick Edit. Also added a couple of actions (functions wpse50827) to move the Author meta box inside the Publish Actions meta box, for easier management. ...

Check out the Subscribe2 Plugin. From the screenshots, it looks like it has per category functionality.

Don't know of a plugin that will do this specifically for a magazine, but it should be easy to implement in this way: Once a sale is triggered through the shopping cart: Have your shopping cart send an email to a autoresponder, such as aweber.com. Most WP shopping carts have functionality built in for a/r, usually including aweber. Configure (if not ...

"As far as I know, if you want to install BuddyPress you've got to have a WordPress MU installation " No, you do not. You can install BuddyPress on a single WordPRess installation. If the blogs are all on different server,s then you do not have what is meant by a WordPress network (multisite - what WAS MU) and the multi DB plugin will not help you. I ...

in case you don't afraid of some php, making a simple form that receives email address and insert it into wordpress database, is quite simple. this method allows you afterwards to generate mailing lists versatile as you like (divided to group of 50s, comma/tab seperated, etc.) to do so the only plugin you'll need will be php-code-widget .

The way I would approach this is: Create several AJAX calls using the nopriv hook bound to the subscribe/follow button clicks. Within the PHP callback functions, I would insert value of the tag or the followed user into the logged-in user's meta using add_user_meta, get_user_meta, delete_user_meta. Lastly, I would create a conditional function to use in ...

I highly recommend MailChimp. There's an RSS to Email Campaign that is nice and customizable. Free up to 2000 subscribers. The RSS URL is example.com/feed/ And MailChimp has subscription plugins, of course.

post notification allows selection of categories http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-notification/ There is a notification that the plugin hasn't been updated for a while but it is still working fine.
