It has been a few months now from when I started using WordPress Jetpack for email updates and honestly, it sucks. I am unable to limit which post it sends out, which categories and hell, I can’t delay the sending of it.
What this means is I am switching back to Feedburner for email updates. Now I have seen that there is actually more people on Feedburner than WordPress Jetpack but for those that may have never signed up for the old Feedburner emails you can do so here: Subscribe to Tweaked for your Pleasure by Email.
I will be updating the site to change the email subscription to Feedburner but will be enabling it for the next article. I will leave the old one running for a while and then will slowly get rid of it. I would import the old emails myself, but ethically for those that didn’t sign up for Feedburner would be signing up for something they never want and that is spam. Continue reading →
It has been quite a long time from when I have written a news update. As you may have seen by now unless you are one of the few that gets email updates, there is a new pop up on the bottom left that is alerting you about cookies. The reason for this is simple that the EU decided to bring a new law in to help privacy but their solution is like nuking a nuclear weapon that is about to be used on another nuclear weapon – pointless and useless.
Aside from this this alert will only pop up once when you first ever visit the website and will never bother you again. Naturally the pop up explains how to opt out of all the cookies and all that so it is worth a look if you want your privacy. Continue reading →
One of the few things I decided to do when I started the make over of Tweaked for your Pleasure is to sort out everything to use one system where possible. So today I have made the next change although this page â€œwill pissâ€ a few people off. These changes involve the email subscription and moving away from FeedBurner to the one provided at WordPress.com.
The provider itself means little to you lot but what does this actually mean to you.
Well the first thing is you will need to re-sign up for email subscriptions which you will be able to find on the side of any articles on Tweaked for your Pleasure such as this one. While you will not need a WordPress.com user accountto sign up for email updates, if you do sign up you will be able to control your subscription emails by stopping them, changing your email and so for and you also are then able to log into this website to comment much like the old usernames in the past.
