I have just committed the version 2.1.1 of Comment Notifier. A lot of changes have been introduced, so I except one or more bugs to be found.
Things changed are:
- Now the plugin use the wp_mail() function, so if you want to send mail via SMTP you can istall one of the plugin which let WordPress to use an SMTP service. wp_mail() function is buggy and some documented features I was using did not work… so it take a lot of time to convert to a different usage of that function.
- Security checks have been added, thank you very much to Philip M. Hofer (Frumph)
- Unsubscription process has been improved with a “destination page”
- Admin panel layout has been changed to be more clear
On next days I want to release (not for free) some extra features. These features let to create a richer notification, with dynamic content.
I’m using for myself such extra features on my blogs to earn money from notification and to increase my traffic. If you’re interest, keep in touch with me subscribing my newsletter (it’s not an intrusive newsletter, I usually use it only to send update about my plugins), or check back the site in few days.
Note the above subscription form of Newsletter plugin embedded in a post… :-)
