Send newsletters, post notifications or autoresponders from WordPress easily, and beautifully.
This is a newsletter plugin right? How does a newsletter app not have a way for me to resend the confirmation email to users? I can mass confirm a bunch of people... But no way to re-send.
Though the plugin has many features, has a huge download volume, and overall high ranking, if I consider the amount of time spent trying to find answers to questions online, purchasing the pro version borders on being a not-so-good investment.
As an example, if you go to any of the support pages for designing pages (subscription, un-subscribe, creating themes, etc.) I'm sure the instructions make sense if you are one of the developers reading them. But if you are an outside (literate) user trying to determine whether to purchase or not, they fall far short.
Anything beyond a barebones install and implementation is beyond confusing, and I've been doing WP for over 5 years.
My experience with their support has been abizmal.
I wanted to try this plugin, but many parts of plugin are in some other language then English?!? As I don't have time to figure out what some words mean, I've just uninstalled it...
Does not send, does not schedule cron job
This seems like a great concept. The plug-in covers the things that a lot of people would like to have, and what's there is pretty good. But I've had some issues with the interface--and then with the people who are designing the software. Specifically, I lost a lot of work by inadvertently hitting (something?)--then learned there was nothing in place to save drafts or backup. Apparently, the Wysija folks took issue with my tone (frustrated, not nasty) and got very defensive. I didn't think much about it.
More recently, when I returned to a WordPress install I had been working on for quite a while but had moved to the back burner, there was a message to update Wysija, which I did. At the end of the process, there was another message from Wysija, apparently very personally addressed to me and/or the organization for which I was building the website (a non-profit kitten rescue operation), saying that they had to get "stars to keep from killing more kittens." Personally, I place this in the realm of the completely bizarre and warped and--obviously--not professional or competent or even entirely sane.
There are other programs. If the Wysija people think "killing kittens" is cute or funny or clever, then I think a lot of people will want to explore those other programs.
