Subscribe To Comments Reloaded


Subscribe to Comments Reloaded is a robust plugin that enables commenters to sign up for e-mail notification of subsequent entries. The plugin includes a full-featured subscription manager that your commenters can use to unsubscribe to certain posts or suspend all notifications. It solves most of the issues that affect Mark Jaquith’s version, using the latest WordPress features and functionality. Plus, allows administrators to enable a double opt-in mechanism, requiring users to confirm their subscription clicking on a link they will receive via email or even One Click Unsubscribe.

Časté dotazy

Are there any video tutorials?

Yeah, I have uploaded a few videos for the following topics:

  1. Issues Updating StCR via WordPress Update
  2. Issues with StCR links see StCR Clickable Links
  3. Issues with empty emails or management messages? see StCR Management Message
  4. Upgrading from the latest development version see Upgrading
Why my notifications are not in HTML format?

Don’t worry, just go to the Options tab an set to Yes the Enable HTML emails option.

How can I reset all the plugin options?

There is a new feature called Safely Uninstall that allow you to delete the plugin using the WordPress plugin interface. If you have the option set to Yes everything but the subscriptions created by the plugin will be wipeout. So after you made sure that you have this option to Yes you can deactivate the plugin and the delete it. Now you have to install the plugin via WordPress or Upload the plugin zip file and activate it, after this step all your settings will be as default and your subscriptions will remain.
There is a new feature added on the Options tab where you can reset all the settings by using only one click. You can either wipe out all the subscriptions or keep them.

What can I do if the **Safely Uninstall** does not have any value?

Just deactivate and activate the plugin and you are all set. The default value will be Yes.

Aaargh! Were did all my subscriptions go?

No panic. If you upgraded from 1.6 or earlier to 2.0+, you need to deactivate/activate StCR, in order to update the DB structure. After the version 180212 a fix was applied so that you can see all the subscriptions.

How do I create a ‚real‘ management page?

Please refer to this page for a detailed step-by-step description on how to do that

Can I customize the layout of the management page?

Yes, each HTML tag has a CSS class or ID that you can use to change its position or look-and-feel.

How do I disable subscriptions for a given post?

Add a custom field called stcr_disable_subscriptions to it, with value ‚yes‘

How do I add the management page URL to my posts?

Use the shortcode [subscribe-url], or use the following code in your theme:
global $wp_subscribe_reloaded; if (isset($wp_subscribe_reloaded)){ echo ‚Subscribe„;

Can I move the subscription checkbox to another position?

Yes! Just disable the corresponding option under Settings > Comment Form and then add the following code where you want to display the checkbox:
stcr->subscribe_reloaded_show(); } ?>

What if after update to the version 141024 I still see plain HTML messages?

The information of your configuration needs to be updated. Go to the Subscribe to Comments Reloaded settings and click the Save Changes button on the tab
where you have you messages with HTML.

How to generate a new Key for my Site?

Just go to the Options Panel and click the generate button. By generating a new key you prevent the spam bots to steal your links.


Really Helpful Plugin

I've been using this plugin for years and really appreciate what it adds to my blog. Definitely recommend!

Great plugin and has worked without any issues

Once I set all the parameters, everything has worked as expected. I've used it for a while without any glitches. Yes, it takes a little bit of time to set up (plugin author put a lot of thoughts into it) but the time is worth spending. Thank you for sharing this free plugin.

Very good plugin but

This plugin is very good, a little bit too, as the page to create to manage subscriptions which is complicated to understand. It's good for one site but very complicated to use on a big multisite like our (4000 blogs). Translations in html are a good idea but not in our configuration. So we have to find another solution 🙁


Exactly what I was looking for. Comments Subscription without Jetpack or other external services. Thanks.


Плагин был настроен, немного доработан перевод, но в целом всё работает как надо Что касается недостатков: Просьбы о пожертвованиях на развитие и поддержку плагина забивают экран просмотра админ панели при каждом открытии или перезагрузке страницы. Это очень сильно мешает работе. Из-за этого от плагина отказался. В описании плагина об этом нет ни слова. upd 09/03/18 На данный момент плагином пользуюсь. Каких-либо недостатков не выявил. Спасибо автору за разъяснения.
