Hi, just a quick update to this:
I’ve easily removed the register feature at the top of the page, however, 100% of people are hunting out the register option from the bottom of the page and registering rather than subscribing for email alerts. Strange.
I think the Subscribe2 plugin actually sends email feeds to registered users as well, so I’ll need to test and sort out that side of things. Personally, I think the 2 plugins will work EXTREMELY well and think all bloggers wanting to develop a tribe of followers will like these ingredients.
Btw, if anybody comes across this post and wants to see the 2 things in action together you can go to my website here: Cyber Glasses Development
I’ll start hunting this support forum now to see if I can take the ‘register to continue’ widget from the top sidebar, as this appears to be the primary call to action, but I think what people really want is the news feed from my Subscribe2 widget (I think this because after registering they are not doing anything. Probably because they don’t see any of my new posts… annoying).
Oh and related questions, can I send email notifications to my subscribers to let them know:
1) When I change them to ‘editor’ level
2) tell them about the backlog of notifications they have missed because of my fumbling
