Clockwork SMS Notfications
[resolved] [Plugin: Mediaburst: Free SMS Notifications] Nice Plug-in + a few ideas/requests (7 posts)

    First off, this is exactly what I was looking for. I'm setting up a website for a non-profit youth football team and they want the ability to send out "hotline" messages if practice is cancelled for example. This works great. I had to toy with it a bit to get it working but even with limited wordpress experience it all came together. HOWEVER; the "send SMS message" from the control panel doesn't work for me. No big deal, I just send out the messages via the POST section.

    A couple of things that would be wonderful for this plug-in:
    -Make sure the send SMS message part works.
    -Ability to change email address from wordpress@mydomain.com
    -Ability to choose default country or not display other countries (in my case I don't expect anyone outside of the US to be subscribing so it's an extra un-needed option).

    Thank you so much for your great tool.

    -Ken

    Hi Ken,
    Thanks for the kind words about the plugin.

    We can't understand why the send SMS part doesn't work for you, we've not had that reported before now. Can you give us any more details, do you get any error messages?

    On the ability to change the email address; where is it you see the email address that you want it changing. If it's in the text message body you could try installing a plugin to change it. See this forum post. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-mediaburst-free-sms-notifications-changingremoving-frmwordpress-text

    Thanks
    Gary

    Gary,

    I didn't receive any error messages when I was attempting to use the SMS part.

    Also I noticed yesterday that my theme (Goodlayers Modernize) wasn't working correctly in terms of CSS changes through the interface. I contacted them, they logged into the site and narrowed the problem down to the SMS Plugin =( Once deactivated the theme worked correctly. Not sure if that's your problem or theirs.

    I had hoped that I could make updates to the theme and then simply re-enable the SMS plugin and all would be good...however; enabling the plugin completely wipes out the stuff that the theme does like it prevents certain stuff from loading or something. I really don't know.

    The only thing I can think of doing to remedy this is to install another instance of wordpress JUST for the SMS plugin to keep it seperate from the site where I have the theme installed. =/ This stinks. =(

    Hi Ken,

    I'm one of the developers at mediaburst, and thought I'd pick this up as Gary's off sick. Do you have a contact at Goodlayers that helped you troubleshoot the problem? I'd like to speak to somebody and see if we can get this sorted for you.

    If you'd prefer not to post their details on a public forum feel free to drop an email to hello@mediaburst.co.uk

    Martin.

    Hi Ken,

    Can you try version 1.0.5, just out a few minutes ago, and let me know if that fixes the issue for you.

    Thanks!

    Simon

    Simon & Martin,

    It looks good! I can't even begin to tell you how awesome it is that you have provided this level of support for a FREE plug-in! My website is for a non-profit and anywhere that we can cut costs while providing valuable services is a huge benefit to our program.

    I sincerely appreciate what you guys have done, I'm very impressed.

    Respectfully,

    Ken Friend
