Subscribe2 is a great plugin for alerting your subscribers by email when you make a new post.
My problem was that on another one of my blogs I have a download section of selected ebooks for my subscribers to download. I had to manually email the subscribers the password to access the downloads every time someone subscribed.
After going through the subscription process myself, it finally dawned on me that I could change the welcome message displayed after the subscriber verified their email address.
Here is how I did it
The existing displayed message is:
You have successfully subscribed!
Save a copy of the plugin on your computer so if you mess up, you can delete the mess and upload a good copy, at least copy the code into a notepad file and save it.
Deactivate the plugin then go to Plugins Editor.
Select Subscribe2 in the list.
In Firefox open Edit – Find
Type in: “subscribed!” (without quotes)
You will see a line like this:
$this->added = "<p>" . __('You have successfully subscribed!','subscribe2') . "</p>";
Right after the subscribed! but before the ‘ is where we will add our message.
Add a double line break after the subscribed!<br /><br /> Thank you for subscribing to MyBlogName <br /><br /> You can access your downloads by clicking on the PageName<br/> and entering the password: xxxxxx<br /> Please save it in a safe place.<br /><br /> Enjoy your download of ______! '
You can add whatever you like, but no paragraph tags. I did not try a link since the link to the page I am pointing them too is right above the message, nor did Otry an image. Do not use words like it’s, don’t or anything with an apostrophe in it. That will end the code at that point.
The problem with doing this, is that when the plugin is updated, you would have to make the change every time.
Let me know how it goes!
