Send newsletters, post notifications or autoresponders from WordPress easily, and beautifully.
Zeer mooie plugin!
As always, it's critical to find the *right* plug-in.
This plugin is just the right thing for keeping my readers posted, just once in a week - and everything goes right into their mailbox, no feedreading required. Coulndn't do without it!
This is far easier to use than the module I inherited when I took over the site admin.
I like the available funcionality, the instructions enriched with advice and clarifications, and the adaptability.
I'm very grateful for the updates - always come in advance of my own issues.
Easy to setup and works great.
So much better than other systems that need updates, work arounds and patching.
I've been using a product from Envato, MyMail, which is clunky at best to compose messages however includes at no extra cost all the tools that WYSIJA charges a subscription fee for. With a one-time $35 I get:
# lifetime updates
# track individual opens, clicks, unsubscriptions & bounces
# auto responders
# campaign scheduling
# send the same newsletter to single address
# built-in SPAM scoring
# johnny-on-the-spot support
# and more.
Basically everything WYSIJA offers for free plus all their subscription features. Now, as I mentioned, the MyMail message composer is frustrating. If you want to go along with the layout fine, but if you want to ever so slightly modify something, forget it! Maybe it's just me because the guy easily has several thousand sales. However I have way too many other things going on most days to spend hours coding an email, so this is the only bright spot I found with WYSIJA.
Stuff is still broken or features missing:
# Clicking on stats opens a page with 5 columns. Clicking any of these thinking you can sort by that column instead pops an error message, "Your request can't retrieve any subscribers. Change your filters!" Okay now what?
# Nit picking but, names under Stats are listed as Last, First - would have preferred a way to display names under stats as First, Last.
# I got a bounce (bad email address) and found no way to resend the newsletter to that one subscriber. Pretty sad because it was a client using an auto responder to notify of his new email address. This missing feature also handicaps you if you get a new client and want to send them an already sent newsletter. It looks like you have to duplicate and send another newsletter for each new email address - pretty clunky.
With MyMail I probably just need to bear down and learn the UI, because for less than half the price of one year with WYSIJA I get a whole lot more.
Like its name, WYSIJA, what you see is just awesome! Works great. Free version offers what you need in a newsletter, and pro version is much much more!
The newsletterbit works like a charm.
I use a not very poetfriendly theme: Northern-clouds.
It mangles the widget for subscription. It would be nice to have a little help there.
