MT Notifier

Well folks, I've fixed my notifications by installing MT Notifier. If you were subscribed to my notifications before, you should have gotten a notice about this entry. Installation was pretty straightforward, although it didn't seem like it would be. Frankly, I should have done this weeks ago.

There are several very cool things about MT Notifier:

  1. I don't have to do anything to get notifications sent out, they're automatic.
  2. There's a user management system for subscriptions. Each person can access their subscriptions and change them as they wish.
  3. You can subscribe to the entire blog, a specific category, by entry and you can choose to receive notice of both entries and comments or just entries.

I'm going to have to figure out how to create a form to add subscriptions like I had before. The old form calls the old (broken) notification system, so I've removed it. I'll also have to figure out how to add a subscription checkbox to the comment form so folks can subscribe to comments.

If you haven't been here since the notifications stopped, the last entry that you were probably notified about was just before the upgrade to MT 3.15. If you'd like to catch up, start here.
