One thing I’m trying to figure out is how we can potentially associate any prompt to sign up (e.g. “Subscribe to my blog:”) with the actual sign up form that gets included in a post. That way we can exclude that entire section in certain situations, like when the post gets emailed out. (Since each email contains the entire post.)
One way could be to wrap the prompt in pseudo-HTML tags, like this:
<!--emailsub--> Subscribe to my blog: <!--/emailsub-->
And then the signup form would automatically be inserted after that prompt. But this is a little more complicated and requires some explanation. The ideal situation would be just inserting a comment where you want the subscription box:
Subscribe to my blog: <!--emailsub-->
But then in the email, in place of
<!--emailsub-->, we’d probably need to say something like “You’re already subscribed.” And that string would need to be localized in every language, and wouldn’t be flexible, and so on.
Any thoughts / ideas?
