BE 2.0 Newsletter widget issue discovered with SQL_CE

Dec 20, 2010 at 4:34 AM

I enabled the Newsletter widget, entered an email address, received the You are Subscribed message OK.

I then posted a test post and waited for the email that never came.  

I downloaded the SQE_CE database, opened it with WebMatrix, refreshed it to be sure, opened the Post Notify table and there was no email listed in the table, I did the process twice to be sure.  

The Newsletter widget is not posting the email address into the database.

The newsletter widget email addresses do not go into the Post Notify table (be_PostNotify).

be_PostNotify is to store notification requests when a person leaves a comment for a post, and checks the box "Notify me when new comments are added".

The newsletter widget email addresses go into the newsletter.xml file in the App_Data folder -- even if you are using a DB.  I just confirmed with SQL CE that that is the case.

Thank you Ben, but it still did not email the notice that a new post was published, I will check it again.


I tested it again and I can confirm that it is working correctly, I posted a test post and received an email confirming it.  Sorry for the wrong information.
