Subject: Need clarification on installation
I installed post_notification but I'm having trouble and the installation docs don't seem to cover this in detail.  I've looked at the actual php code but I'm still at a loss.  I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if I have a problem with my installation.

Here's what I've done:
Installed and activated post_notification
Added my email address to the subscriber's list
Set my profile to "en_US"
Set the template to email_template.html
Set "Sender-Email:" to my own email address
Set "Post Notification link in the meta-section" to Yes
Checked "Add Post Notification page:" - This resulted in post ID 21 in the box for "Link to the Post Notification page"

When sending a test post notification to myself using the Test utility it works great.

What I don't understand is I can't see Post 21 anywhere.  I don't see a link to the subscription page in my Meta-data section.  Basically, I have no idea how viewers will be able to subscribe.

Am I missing something?

Thanks!
Matt

Post 21 should be a Page. In WP the difference between a Page and Post is only an attribute. The Link in the Meta-Sektion should show up and you should land on Page 21.
I'm not sure whether that helps. Just keep on asking. :-)

Wow!  Thanks for the quick reply!

That helped.  I found the page created by post_notification in the pages section in Admin.

The link, however, does not show in the meta section. 

I'm thinking about removing my meta section all together so I'll probably just manually place the post_notification link using my theme.

Thanks,
Matt

Hmmm that's odd. It should! If I find time I'll look into it.
