MT-Notifier 2.3.5

  • Fixed a problem with entry subscription when type set.

For a change of pace, I've released MT-Notifier version 2.3.5.

I figured everyone was tired of new versions of MT-Approval. In any case, if you're paying close attention, you'll notice that I didn't mention anything about version 2.3.4. That's because it was done for all of a few hours before a bug reared its head, requiring the updates in 2.3.5.

New in version 2.3.4 is a logging feature. This logging feature isn't terribly complex, but it will write some information to the Movable Type activity log during most subscription actions. There are a few that don't log, simply because they don't go through the same subscription process that most of them do. But for the vast majority, you'll see something - either a success message or a failure message.

If the subscription is successful, the email address will link to the MT-Notifier management page for that address. The title of the item being subscribed to will link to the management page for that item (blog, category or entry). If unsuccessful, a message will display that gives the reason for failure.

As with MT-Approval, MT-Notifier is using HTML markup in the log entry. Because of this, if you want your log entry to look nicer, you'll need to make use of the view_log.tmpl included in the distribution. If you have already installed this template for MT-Approval, you don't need to do so again.

Version 2.3.5 is being released to address a bug with entry subscriptions. Specifically during the comment subscribe process. If you had selected a subscription type (comments only or entries only), the second person (and every person thereafter) to attempt to subscribe to a particular entry would be unsuccessful. That has now been addressed. Thanks to Mike for alerting me to and helping me track down the problem. And for being patient through the many versions required to squash it.
