Hey there, I just tried to install the plugin and I got:
The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature
I’m a newbie so I might be doing something wrong? I just downloaded it and then browsed to the file from the add plugins part of my dashboard.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks Robin! (and Robkk) (I just ran across this looking for a solution too.)
I guess my question though… why isn’t this the default behavior in general?
It’s pretty much how BBSs have worked since Internet and email have been around.
(Sorry to sound a bit snarky, but I sometimes wonder if people developing social media and newer BBS systems have even used the tried & true stuff that’s been around forever. Subscription and notification functionality are kind of 1.0 stuff, IMO. And, I know it’s a lot of development work… but even Facebook – with their army of developers – doesn’t seem to get this. So, I have to wonder if it isn’t more oversight than workload oriented.)
Why not add the below code to the theme’s functions.php file?
//Subscribe by default
Nice one @devyncjohnson that works well, thanks!
