St Category Email Subscribe


Surprisingly there is no plugin available to allow users to subscribe for posts on a wordpress website based on category.
A subscriber for one category might not want to receive posts of another category. This plugin will help you to do that.
Once a subscriber is added for a particular category, he/she will receive emails as soon as a post is published in that category.

** Features **
1. Add Subscribers for their desired category
2. Use Widget or Short Code to display Subscriber Form
3. Add the Subscribers manually, or upload in batch from a CSV file.
4. Email will be sent to all subscribers as soon as a post is published in that category
