    I am having trouble with Adding subscribers to my blog in the Admin page under Tools - Subscribers - Manage Subscribers.

    I can Remove/delete but it won't Add any new subscribers. I don't even get a notification when a visitor visits my blog and decides to "subscribe" or "unsubscribe.

    This WordPress is from Yahoo and is totaly web based.

    Can anyone adise??

    Is this a self-hosted WordPress site? Only there isn't a Subscribers - Manage Subscribers option in the Admin/Tools sub menu. Users are managed via the Users sub menu.

    The WordPress site is hosted by Yahoo. The only "users" are is me - the admin/author. The rest are my subscribers to my blog.

    The problem is that even new visitors to my blog can not subscribe since I don't get notified. My blog is:

    franknagyfinancialservices.com/blog

    In the tools menu - subscribers, when I type in the emails of a new subscriber (Manage Subscribers) and click "subscribe", it simply states "Address(es) subscribed!" But no email is added to my current subscribers.

    There isn't a Subscribers - Manage Subscribers option within WordPress itself. Are you perhaps using some sort of subscription plugin?

    It must be a plugin. It came with the Yahoo set up.

    It might be worth looking in Admin/Plugins section to see if you can identify which plugin it is. Unfortunately, I know very little about the Yahoo/WP set up.

    Can you recommend a good "subscriber manager plugin" where I can add/remove subscribers, have visitors to my blog subscribe/unsubscribe to my blog, ete.?

    Can I ask why you need a plugin for this? You can do all of those things via the Users sub-menu. And you don't need any plugins to allow visitors to register on your blog.

    I thought I need the plugin to manage my subscribers.

    Not for your blog users.
