The easiest way is to use subversion to get them. If you have shell access to your server, you might already have svn there, or you could download tortoisesvn, a windows client. It might come in handy for future things, so worth a little extra time now. I don't know. I run almost all web sites that I run with subversion, then I always know what was edited, and always have a history of what changed, as well as when customers change stuff without telling me, and also it makes it very easy to have development sites to test stuff first before publishing.

I have built sites for years and offering hosting, but never heard of subversion until using lifetype. Maybe I should have learned about a lot earlier, but just don't have the time to learn all about subversion now. I will just download each file. I have tons of clients that want the subscriber feature. Hopefully I can figure out how to make it work with the latest LT.

If you don't have a subversion client, there isn't an easy way to do it, I think. Though you might search for a minute on google, and see if there is; I haven't ever looked for one.

I would be willing to pay a few bucks for the subscriber plugin to be ported to 1.2.

I can take a look at it, but not until the end of this week. It is likely an easy one, most plugins convert pretty easily to 1.2, just no one got around to doing it for some of them.

I've got it working a little bit on 1.2, but there are a handful of features that the plugin needs to have if it is going to be particularly useful. Like (don't allow spammers to sign other people up...)

It also now allows for authenticated commenters to check the box.

The anti-spammer bit might be the only feature left, but I'm done for today.

I went into the wiki plug-in and did not see this plugin. Are you waiting until you have all features done before you put it in wiki?

yeah, wiki is last. (The wiki is also annoying, since it is redundant information, so annoying to keep up to date) You shouldn't trust the wiki data - just go look on sf.net and see if the plugin is there. (and feel free to update the wiki - I like the idea of having the text on the wiki, but it seems to me that non-developers should help out doing that stuff, since anyone can do it, rather than take up developer resources, when they could be coding).

I absolutely agree that non-developers should help out on wiki updates. I just found out how easy it is. I moved the edit comments plugin into the 1.2 section.

Regarding the new post alert (subscribe) plugin I went into sf and I did not see anything that looked like it.

editcomments: thanks. If you were up to checking out if other plugins are updated, that would be great!

subscribe: yeah, not uploaded as it isn't ready yet.
