ver. 4.1 corrects the problems below! The re-publishing trick still applies, though. Pages or Posts that are simply re-edited and saved will not generate a notifier email. To have an email sent, one must save as draft, and then re-publish.Regarding PAGES
Presently it seems that ver 4.0 of the plugin (in WP 2.3.1) sends a message with blanks for the TITLE and POST content when a page is edited. Subscribe2 works fine when publishing a new page, or when re-publishing an existing page.
- The trick then for editing a page is to save it as “draft,” then re-publish when all edits are completed!
- Unresolved issue: When creating or editing any page, it will generate an extra email with blanks – but at least a proper one will be sent in addition for a new or re-published page!
These fields also work fine when dealing with a new post. … Edits of existing posts, however, generate no email (even when timestamp is changed)!
- BUT! … As with pages, one can employ the same trick: save the post as draft, then republish, and a notifier email will be sent!
N.B. For wordPress in general: “Private” Pages are equivalent to Drafts. “Private” Posts can be seen only by registered users who are logged in.
