Subscription plugins to check for

  • Jetpack Subscriptions
  • Mailpoet
  • Subscribe2
  • New Post Notification
  • Newsletter

Comment notification plugins

Comment notification plugins to check for

  • Jetpack Commenting
  • Jetpack Subscriptions
  • Subscribe to Comments / Reloaded / Better Unsubscribe
  • Send email only on Reply to My Comment
  • Comment Notifier No Spammers
  • Subscribe to Double-Opt-In Comments
  • Comment Notifier
