Confirm subscription is not working

Re subscriptions: The first link: “Confirm your subscription…” is not resulting in a subscription. The second link … to start receiving future posts: does confirm the subscription.

That would be fine if the Confrim you subscription was not a link, but just a pointer to the second link, but it is not.

So the first link (Blog Name) is supposed to explain which blog you’re subscribing to, in case the email was in error, or someone forgets they subscribed in the first place. But if the language is confusing, I can probably make it a little more explicit that you need to click the Subscribe to Blog Name link.

Please do. Most confirmations emails give you two links that are both confirmations. No one who told me they subscribed have subscribed. Only my wife who tried the second link is subscribed.
