I’m trying to install subscribe-to-comments wordpress plugin in order to make my users to easily set a tick and receive new emails if somebody replies to their comments in my blog. Pitily downloading and trying to install the subscribe-to-comments wordpress plugin was failing after it’s activation with an error message:

PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare show_subscription_checkbox() (previously declared in /var/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/subscribe-to-comments/subscribe-to-comments.php:12) in /var/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/subscribe-to-comments.php on line 58"

I did my best to edit the subscribe-to-comments.php to fix up the fatal error but it was no go, so after a bunch of research I’ve found out somebody created a new version of the plugin under the name subscribe-to-comments-reloaded .

I’ve proceeded and gave a try to subscribe-to-comments-reloaded as a substitute to the old broken subscribe-to-comments .

Enabling the subscribe-to-commets-reloaded worked out of the box and the plugin now works perfectly fine and even better is enabling all the functionaity of the subscribe-to-comments
Cheers 🙂
