Basically, I want to follow the author by other WordPress users. Whenever an author posts new post subscribed users need to get notification by email.

If it's not already there, I can create a plugin for this. But I need an idea to store the data. Should I go for custom table or is there a better way to store default table structure.

I would consider installing Jetpack and activating the Email Subscriptions module.


I have developed plugin called Wp Subcribe Author to subscribe author by email. You can download and use it from WordPress site.

I used custom custom table structure, I feel that's good, because I don't want to mess up with database performance !

  • You should not create a new table for each blog in a multi-site. And CHARSET=latin1 – why? Default is UTF-8 in WordPress.
