WordPress blog post notification

  • # January 29, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    Hey all,
    I want to be able to give users the option of signing up in my blog to receive email notices of each new post.
    Is this possible and what would be the best way of doing it? Any and all help is appreciated!

    Hello Voodazz!

    Try this:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/subscribe2/

    You can also use Feedburner: http://feedburner.com/

    Feedburner is probably a little more complicated to set up than the WordPress plugin that Tyler suggested. However, Feedburner gives you analytics to allow you to track your subscribers. If you need that sort of thing, you might want to look in to it.

    Thanks for the responses! I ended up using Contact Form – 7 to set up an email field in my footer and used the email data to populate the subscribers option.
    I’ll definitely look into these two other plug-ins because I can definitely see some advantages in using them later on down the line.

    Thanks again!
