Subject: How do users subscribe to receive notification?
I had to get a new notification plugin since the one I was using doesn't seem to work with 2.3.1, and this one looks promising.

One problem: how do users sign up? What form am I supposed to stick in the sidebar? I saw this thread: http://pn.strübe.de/forum.php?req=thread&id=97 but since I don't speak German, it doesn't help much. Nevertheless, I tried sticking the code in my sidebar and I don't think it worked. Is it supposed to display a "thanks for subscribing" page when a user signs up?

Can someone explain, in English, how I set up a form in the sidebar for a user to input their email to receive notification? I don't remember seeing anything in the readme on how to do this.

Thanks.

You have to Create a subscription page in any case. The code for the sidebar, which comes with the plugin is broken. I didn't have the time/motivation to fix that. But it's looking good in the next few days. Till then you probably have to send your users to the subscription page.

It works for me. I'll add some changes anyway. Just add the content of the subscribe_snippet.php to your sidebar and see whether it does what you want.

Sorry, me again. Should I get some kind of notification that a user has subscribed to my blog? It would be nice if it did.

At the moment you don't. That's something for this forum: http://pn.strübe.de/forum.php?req=main&id=4

Subject: Subscription page
I've installed Post Notification 1.2.9, and added users manually to the subscriber list.  The plugin is working, but how do I add a subscription page?  Is it the same as the register page?

I tried the subscribe-snippet.php in the side bar, but it doesn't seem to work?  It allows the entering of an email address, but the email address doesn't get listed as a subscriber.  You said you were going to fix it in a previous comment.  Have you fixed it yet?

1) Register is the same as the subscribe page.
2) The snippet inserts your email into the subscribe-page.
3) No I didn't change anything yet. But I'll do so now.
