Chad Everett dropped me a note today reminding me that he also has a comment subscription plugin for MovableType that I could take a look at seeing as Oscar’s wasn’t working out for me. Chad’s version does require some hacking of the MT source code, but it’s very minimal. Plus if you run MT-Blacklist (which I do) then you don’t have to hack the MT Code directly at all as the change is made to part of MT-Blacklist instead.
Needless to say, this made it much more attractive. So, as of about a minute or so ago I completed the relatively pain-free install of MT-Notifier and we once again have an option to subscribe to comments here at SEB. You can either subscribe when you post a comment or put in an email address and subscribe without commenting. I just need to rebuild the current individual archive pages so the forms will show up on all the pages and we’ll be all set. So, if you’ve wanted a way to be notified whenever someone comments on a particular entry here at SEB you now (for the second time) have a way of doing so.
Thanks to Chad for pointing out how simple his hack was and removing my wussiness at trying out his plugin.
