New BuddyPress plugin: BuddyPress Group Email Subscription

Email Options on settings page

I’m quite happy to announce the release of a more-or-less stable (we hope!) version of BuddyPress Group Email Subscription, a BuddyPress plugin that allows for fine-grained, user-controllable email subscription to group content in BuddyPress.

This plugin is different from some of my others in that it was truly a group endeavor. The base of the plugin was written by David Cartwright, with a little bit of code from me. A nearly complete rewrite of the front-end and most of the guts of the plugin was undertaken by Deryk Wenaus. I wrote the daily and weekly digest functionality, along with some of the settings pages and various bugfixes throughout. The current codebase of the plugin is probably 60% Deryk, 30% me, and 10% David.

It was my first time working on a truly collaborative software development project like this, and it was a real pleasure working with both of these gentlemen. Thanks, guys.

    Hey Boone,

    I posted on the buddypress forum, but I figured I would try here as well. I’m using group subscriptions, but the daily digest function isn’t working. “All email” is working great, so I wonder if you can point me in the right direction to troubleshoot. The site is active, and I’m using a very custom theme, so I can’t very easily change themes to see if that makes a difference. Anywhere else I can look to what might be causing the problem.

    Thanks so much for your help.
