You can now SUBSCRIBE to individual posts
Want to know when someone comments on a particular blog post? Subscribe to get notified.
You can now subscribe to individual posts to be notified when others comment on that post. This feature exists on the public blog (where you are right now) as well as on the Internal Posts (the members-only blog post system). You can check the box to subscribe when you make your own comment, or you can click the link to subscribe without leaving a comment as well.
After logging in, you will see the option to subscribe to comments below the comments box on posts.
Subscribing to comments on a post happens for individual posts, and each subscription generates an email with a link for you to confirm or modify your subscription. You need to click the link.
About half of the current subscribers receiving Table Talk never confirmed their own subscription to Table Talk. After verbally confirming with church staff that these individuals indeed intended to subscribe, I manually “clicked the link” for each of them so they would receive Table Talk as they wished. I cannot do that for this, so if you want to subscribe to comments on a post, you’ll need to actually click the link that you receive, in order to confirm that you want to subscribe to comments.
Okay? It’s pretty straightforward, and this was a feature request. Peace.
I also made some improvements to the built-in search feature on the website, which will hopefully improve its functionality. This has nothing to do with subscribing to individual posts, but I didn’t want to make a whole new post for just this little bit of information. It was also a feature request, to deal with some janky search results, which are hopefully looking better now, if not perfect. Try it out: search the website for something you want, and see whether the search gets you what you were seeking.

Thank you! All you have put into this site is amazing. It is really more than I would have ever dreamed to ask for in a church site.
Thanks, Sandy. I couldn’t have made a “church website” (which too often means a not-good website). I built this like I’d make a site for any organization in today’s arena. Let me know how to site search is looking on your end sometime. I’m hoping that some things I did have improved it. 🙂
Am happy to have such a nice website.
I would like to have a sign in on the home sight. I often am confused on the home page.
Hi Sharon, I’m sorry you are often confused on the home page. The link to sign in is on the top of the home page, and every page, on this website. For accessibility, if you are browsing this site using a screen reader or similar device, the link to sign in is the first link on every page including the home page.
