Epicwin Plugin

Description

This plugin allows your blog visitors to subscribe to your blog via email and receive notifications whenever you create a new post. You can control everything from the WordPress admin.

Use the <?php get_epicwin_box(); ?> template tag to add a subscribe box anywhere on your WordPress site.

Please remember to rate if you like or dislike the plugin, your feedback keeps me motivated and always improving the plugin.

**** IMPORTANT *****

  1. Since version 1.2 the plugin has switched the mail system from mail() to sendmail. Please update your plugin immediately if you are using a version older than 1.2.

  2. Always remember to back up your data before upgrading the plugin as the re-installation of the plugin will wipe out all subscribers from the database.

  3. Back up your subscribers by using the export options and then use the generated file to import them after the upgrade has been finished.
