Ever go to a blog and read an article that you find interesting and would like to follow what other commentators are saying but you don’t really care to add a comment yourself?
I do sometimes. Especially if it’s a list that I know others will add links to in a comment section.
Like mine, most WordPress blogs you go to have the Subscribe To Comments plugin so those that comment can keep up on the conversation going on in the comment section.
There’s a little tweak I did to my Subscribe To Comments plugin many bloggers may not be aware of that you can do.
By simply adding the following line of code to your comments.php file, you can allow your blog readers to follow a topic without commenting.
<?php show_manual_subscription_form(); ?>
As mentioned above, add the code to your comments.php file and just below the </form> tag near the bottom of the file’s code.
This will add a small box under the “Subscribe To Comments” checkbox where your commentators can enter their email address and stay connected. For an example, scroll down and see how mine is displayed below.
