A New Button to Try!!

After several requests, I have attempted to install a “Subscribe” button on the homepage. It is located in the side menu below “Recent Posts” and it “should” send you an email when I post a new entry. You will need to enter a name and email address for this to work….and even at that I cannot guarantee it will work correctly.

I tested it with an alternate email address and I did receive an email that there is a new post on the site along with a link to the post. But it seems to be incomplete – there is supposed to be a link in the email for the reader to confirm they wish to subscribe with a follow up email confirming the subscription. And, although the emails are supposed to be sent automatically when I add a new post, I don’t know if that will happen either yet. But it is a start – bear with me please, and if you are so inclined, give it a try!

UPDATE: I did verify that the subscribing portion of this works correctly – you will get an email with a link to confirm your subscription and will be subscribed. So that part works – the next test will be in a few days once a couple of people hopefully subscribe and I add a new post; those subscribed should then receive an email from the site Admin (me) letting you know that there is a new post. We’ll see……
