Release Notes

This plugin allows you to subscribe to blog posts and group topic discussions, sending you a message whenever a comment is added to a blog post or a reply is added to a group topic discussion to which you are subscribed. It also adds a "My Subscriptions" button on your profile status page.

When you enable the plugin, a new button will appear on all blog post and topic discussion pages, "Subscribe". If you click the button, it will change to "Unsubscribe" and another button will appear, "Show subscribers". If you click on the Show subscribers button, a pop-up window will appear with the profile icons and names of all users who are currently subscribed to that blog post
or topic discussion. You will receive a message from the Elgg system when someone comments on the blog post or replies to the topic discussion. If you're not interested in the post or topic any more, just click on the "Unsubscribe" button. If a post or topic already has subscribers, you'll see the Show subscribers button even if you are not a subscriber.

  • 0.9.2 fixes bug with localised notify message and bug where Show my subscriptions button was appearing for all users instead of just the logged in user.

  • mhm.. found a little bug ;] when press the button "Show subscribers" and then press on user picture it shows "page not found", because there are 2 slashes (, small bug, but.. ;]]

  • ;]] in blogwatch/actions/subscribers.php at line 26 change:

    echo "<a href=\"{$CONFIG->wwwroot}/pg/profile/{$user->username}\"><img src=\"{$user->getIcon("".$icon_size."")}\" title=\"{$user->username}\"/></a><br />";


    echo "<a href=\"{$CONFIG->wwwroot}pg/profile/{$user->username}\"><img src=\"{$user->getIcon("".$icon_size."")}\" title=\"{$user->username}\"/></a><br />";

  • I've been wanting something like this that would expand the existing RSS output for blogs/discussions to include new comments. What's the point of an RSS feed that never comes up with new material right? Any chance your approach here could be put to use in this way?

  • @witepskas thanks for that. Have updated the code. Will make a new release

    @chiinook you're prolly better off raising a trac item to get the existing RSS fixed
