LkldNow has restored its service that lets readers sign up to get an alert by email every time we publish a new article. If you signed up previously, you will have received two alert today, including one linking to this article.
If you would like to sign up, do it here or keep scrolling.
If you signed up before and received the email but decide you no longer want it, the email contains a link to unsubscribe.
By way of explanation, we quit sending the alerts last March around the time LkldNow started publishing obituaries. We suspected that most people who wanted news alerts would not want to be notified of every obituary, so we followed the steps needed to exclude obituaries from the feed.
Unfortunately, the steps didn’t work. And after obituaries were sent out, we heard from several readers who confirmed our suspicious that they weren’t interested in getting an email every time we published an obituary.
I asked a couple of people who know a lot more than I about the technical side of WordPress to see if they could get it working the way we wanted. They couldn’t get the computer code to work, either.
Covid came and our attention shifted to news coverage. This week, I decided to take a new look at our news alerts. A contact at Mosier Data Services suggested a new way to get our emails to work correctly, and it looks like we’re back in business.
