_Copied from http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/SubscribePluginDev_

Using TWiki 4.1.1 and the SubscribePlugin version 13787 - 18 May 2007 (mind you, even the latest version from 20 Feb 2008 is still version 13787 in the source code and it still has the same bit of problem code). When you define the level of children topics you want to subscribe to in the WebNotify topic (e.g. MyTopic (3)) the Subscribe Plugin fails when it uses the MailerContrib isSubscribedTo function because it doesn't pass a $db variable and thus the getParent function is undefined. In the SubscribePlugin.pm file in the first else statement of _getbutton, somewhere after the #checking if the user has subscribed for that topic already comment but before the if ( $subscriber-> isSubscribedTo... you have to add

require TWiki::Contrib::MailerContrib::UpData;
my $db = new TWiki::Contrib::MailerContrib::Updata( $session, $web );
and then the above if statement becomes

=if ( $subscriber->isSubscribedTo($stopics, $db) ) {=

Hope that makes sense, sorry the lack of a patch file.
