So I spent some time upgrading all of my plug-ins last week. I don’t know why. I was bored, it seemed like I should do this periodically, and…I don’t know. Upgrading WP & the plug-ins is really my only beef with WordPress. You upgrade, and then a week later, it’s time to upgrade something (that works perfectly fine) again.
But anyways…Subscribe-to-Comments is one of my favorite plug-ins. There’s nothing like it to help keep the conversation flowing. I love to enable the “leave subscribe button checked by default” option – they place the subscribe checkbox below the comment box, and it’s easy to miss. So pretty much all of your commentators end up subscribing, and if it pisses them off, it’s easy to unsubscribe.
Until the latest upgrade!!! They just removed that option so that now you can’t enable the “leave subscribe button checked by default.” It’s not there anymore. And that really grinds my gears.
