A Message to Our Subscribers

We are aware that a number of our subscribers have not been receiving the e-mail daily digests and notifications for which they subscribed. Support for the plug-in we have been using for this purpose has been discontinued. Finding another program that meets our requirements and works with our version of WordPress is difficult, but we are working on the problem. Please be sure that e-mail from indies-unlimited.com is added to your e-mail whitelist.

While this is going on, you may stop receiving notifications, receive extra notifications, or notice changes in the appearance or frequency of the notifications. We regret any inconvenience this causes. Thanks for your patience and for supporting Indies Unlimited.

We’d also like to especially thank Jon Gibbs-Smith. He is the husband of IU subscriber Mary Smith. Jon is a techie-type guy who has done a lot of legwork to help us narrow down the problem. We want Jon to know his efforts are greatly appreciated.

Important Notice About E-Mail Notifications

Indies Unlimited has deactivated our subscription feature. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for those of you who relied on it as an easy way to keep tabs on the many posts and discussions on the site. We were notified by our host serving company that we had been reported for spamming people with unsolicited e-mails. The only people receiving the e-mails were the people who had chosen to subscribe. The subscription feature was fully automated to send notifications according to what the subscriber had checked.

Evidently, some people couldn’t figure out how to unsubscribe. The back-end controls on the subscription feature were basically on/off. As administrators, Kat and I did not have the ability to fine-tune a subscriber’s notifications. When we received a request to unsubscribe someone, we always did so immediately.

Anyway, you know where we are, and we hope you will continue come by and visit. When and if we implement a new subscription feature, we will let you know. Meanwhile, if you know of any plug-ins compatible with WordPress version 3.2.1 which clearly allow for an opt-out (or unsubscribe) in the emails, please feel free to let us know in the comments below. And thank you for your patience.
