Subscribe2 – Form, Email Subscribers & Newsletters

Description

Summary

Subscribe2 provides a comprehensive subscription management and email notification system for WordPress blogs that sends email notifications to a list of subscribers when you publish new content to your blog.

A full description of features is below.

Email

Email notifications can be sent on a per-post basis or periodically in a Digest email. Additionally, certain categories can be excluded from inclusion in the notification and posts can be excluded on an individual basis by setting a custom field.

Subscriptions

Subscription requests allows users to publicly subscribe (Public Subscribers) by submitting their email address in an easy to use form or to register with your blog (Registered Users) which enables greater flexibility over the email content for per-post notifications for the subscriber. Admins are given control over the presentation of the email notifications, can bulk manage subscriptions for users and manually send email notices to subscribers.

The format of the email can also be customised for per-post notifications, Subscribe2 can generate emails for each of the following formats:

  • plaintext excerpt.
  • plaintext full post (Registered Users only).
  • HTML excerpt (Registered Users only).
  • HTML full post (Registered Users only).

If you want to grow your subscriber lists, send automated campaigns to huge subscriber lists, you should upgrade to weMail.

Privacy Policy

Subscribe2 uses Appsero SDK to collect some telemetry data upon user’s confirmation. This helps us to troubleshoot problems faster & make product improvements. Learn more about how Appsero collects and uses this data.

This tool meets our expectations, I would like to recommend.

Seemed to do what I wanted but I cannot get new members to show up as subscribers even after following the developers instructions. Because of this when I make a new post only the admin is emailed. I have to go in manually every time someone subscribes and change their role. Not so automated. If I cannot fix this I will uninstall.

In no case do not install this plugin!!! There is no captcha, and without it from your site will be sent spam! I wrote the hoster that on our server in the queue to send hundreds of letters. All because of this plugin. Do not install it!

Subscribers now can easily get notifications when I publish a new post and find out everything about new methods of acupuncture available in my salon.

Dont waste your time. I lost over 100 subscribers because this plugin was installed, tested, and working fine. The site went public, and a few days in the plugin just stopped working. Support is there, but poor. We're several days in, and no further forward. All I'm getting is told what I see on my screen isnt actually there. The guys seems to get very stroppy when told his plugin has problems. Its bordering on aggressive.
