Subscribe to a category blog

Post by Lowrider614 » Sun Nov 05, 2017 3:49 pm


i'm looking for an extension or plugin, that allows users to subsribe to a category blog. The effect should be, that the user receives an e-mail on new posts.
This seems to be a little thing but it turns out to be a tough nut.

I posted the same question in the German forum, but I'm closing the topic there. Here it will help more people who might have the same problem.
Additionally, there has been another thread on this issue, but no solution has been presented (in the German Forum as well).

What I found so far is a solution using RSS Feeds and Feedburner but the limitations arising from Feedburner make the solution not suitable for me. ... la-website

Is there anyone who solved this issue? One solution would be to use a Wordpress extension, but this is really not what I want.

As my experience, using RSS feeds is the most suitable way for what you need. And 1 suggestion for you: using obRSS, you could create feeds flexibly for your categories.

Cheer up!

Reason: As per the forum rules, changed the URL of the extension from the Developer's URL to JED URL. Kindly bear this in mind when providing the URL of an extension.
