I have just added a new support feature to the blog — an email subscription list for important announcements about AZIndex.
As I continue to work on AZIndex in the weeks ahead, I will be making a few changes to the code that might break some indexes that use the more advanced features of the plugin–like filters, custom sorts, and customized CSS styling.
While I will attempt to keep these changes to a minimum, they are necessary as part of the continuing development of the plugin, and there is no doubt that a some users (hopefully, only a few) will be affected.
I will, of course, blog about these changes before I make them to give you all fair warning of what to expect, but unless you are subscribed to the English Mike RSS feed, you are likely to miss them. Therefore I have created an AZIndex Announcements Email List for those of you who would like an easy way to be kept informed of important changes and updates to AZIndex as they happen.
If you subscribe to this list, you will receive an email whenever I post an important announcement about AZIndex–i.e. information about a new version of AZIndex, and advanced warnings about impending changes that might break some indexes. You may, of course, unsubscribe from the list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided in the emails sent to you.
In case you are interested, after trying out several WordPress plugins, I decided that the easiest way to do this was to use the email feature in FeedBurner (now part of the Google empire) which makes use of the RSS feed capabilities of WordPress to send new posts to subscribers. In this case, any post I put in the “AZIndex Announcements” category will be sent as an email to all subscribers. I will probably add another email list for “AZIndex Hints and Tips” at some point soon.
