Reviews

Does what it says! Works great!

If you have open bbPress forums and need email notifications, this plugin is a lifesaver. bbPress should have this functionality built-in, but because it does not, use this plugin. All it does is adds a "subscribe" button for guest posters in your forums. It works great.

Great plugin and support

This plugin is exactly what we need for our website. Stefano helped me out by checking the settings as I couldn't figure out what kept it from sending the notifications. Now the plugin works as a charm and we are very happy with it. Thank you very much Stefano! Kind regards, Inge Dwang.eu
