    We have been using the subscription feature on one of my other websites, WestBocaNews.com. Glad you all like it.

    Please e-mail me (wredlich@gmail.com) with any other suggestions for the site. We have at least one more change coming (a better search box) and I’m sure we’ll be making more tweaks here and there.

    I’m hoping to apply my experience to increase traffic with some simple changes (I just changed the site’s title tag and tagline slightly). And I hope to get us back into Google News which should also increase traffic. The goal is to increase awareness of third parties and independent candidates.

    I’m also hoping to attract more writers. Paulie and Trent do the lion’s share of work in that area, but we need more. I have some ideas toward that, but am open to hearing other suggestions.

    The most obvious one, paying someone, is not possible considering the economics of the site. It can’t generate enough revenue to support paying anyone.

    The “subscribe” feature is a great one, Warren. I’m looking forward to more improvements to the site, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy working with you!

    Admit it Paulie, it was because of my incessant whining lol

    You were one of several :-)

    I’d love a like button –So many individual post I’d love to “like”

    Good idea. Anyone know a specific plugin that does this for comments? We already have it for posts.

    Somewhere in the code is a setting that lets only people at a certain level edit their own comments or include videos and images in comments.

    Right now we have

    Administrator (5) | Editor (34) | Author (1) | Subscriber (925)

    Most of the subscribers are from 2008 when you had to log in to post a comment.

    If Warren can find where that setting is, he can set it so subscribers can perform those actions also.

    You’d have to have a log in and actually log in to be able to do those things, which you don’t have to do to leave comments in general, but it would be better than the current system.

    I’m not sure what level you have to be at right now – either Author or Editor.

    As far as I know this comment subscriber level is unrelated to the new subscribe to posts by email feature.
