Adding subscriptions to comments for your Wordpress theme

If you are using a Wordpress theme which doesn’t support users subscribing to comments (crazy I know) you can add the plugin Subscribe to comments which is currently at version 2.1

A summary of the features this plugin provides:

  • Rudimentary security
  • Recognition of subscription status
  • Themeable subscription manager
  • Ability to let users change notification e-mail address
  • Easy integration into comments form
  • Subscription without leaving a comment
  • Customization
  • Internationalization

Installation is as easy as you’d expect from a Wordpress plugin. Simply upload 1 php file into the plugins directory, then “activate” the plugin in the admin area.

Then all you need to do is add a line of code to your theme comments.php where you want the checkbox to go and you’re ready!

<?php show_subscription_checkbox(); ?>
