More Subscribers

Description

Sometimes, you just want to get the users first name, last name and email address and have it added to WordPress user list as a subscriber. This
plugin does just that!

Perhaps you would like to start sending out newsletters to your subscribers? There are plenty of WordPress
plugins that allow you to set up newsletters so you can start sending out mailing lists to your subscribers.

Grow your subscriber list today and start connecting with your subscribers.

Technical details:

When a subscriber signs up, a new user is created in the wp_users table as a subscriber. The subscriber will contain the details provided through the form and a random password will be assigned consisting of a complex randomly generated string of 34 characters in length.

Installation

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to widgets to see the available widget and drag it your desired location.

FAQ

Can I change the password of the subscriber?

Yes! Simply go to the subscribers account and change the password there.

What happens when a user hits submit after entering an email address?

An alert pops up letting the user know that their email address has been added to the database.

What about support for WPML?

It is possible for WPML to detect strings in the plugin so these can be translated.

What about security and strange inputs?

There are multiple security checks carried out to ensure that strange inputs like php code, and sql injections are not inserted into the database as-is. Instead, such inputs are manipulated by the plugin before being inserted.

Can I get more custom functionality?

Sure, just leave a message behind in the forum as to what you would like to have included in the plugin and I will do my best to make time and implement the new changes.
