  • Step 3: Goto WP Mailer -> Forms and create a subscribe form.
  • Step 4: Embed the form in your page by using one of three methods:-
    • Go to Appearance -> Widgets and drag WP Mailer Subscribe Form widget into a sidebar.
    • Use the shortcode [wpm_form id="1"].

FAQ

Can this plugin be used to send emails when I publish a new post or page?

Yes, currently it supports the ability to send email newsletters of WordPress posts only but we will look at pages and other custom post types in the near future.

How can I create my own email template?

Reviews

Apparently not being supported

I have been emailing the developer for about a month now with NO RESPONSE. There are a few problems that make it unusable such as campaigns being sent out multiple times as well as usability issues such as no way to send a test email for a specific post and no easy way to customize the template. I really need a plugin like this and was willing to pay for a premium version, but they WON’T RESPOND TO MY EMAILS TO TELL ME WHETHER THEY ARE SUPPORTING IT ANY LONGER or even if they received my email. I hope they will respond to this so I can revise my review, but right now, this plugin is worthless and this developer is unreliable.

Easy for my client to use.

She’s been having all kinds of troubles with FeedBurner and I found this a good alternative.

It could use some work, however. Like the others, I would like to see the subscriber have some choices in delivery options.

Perhaps in addition or as an alternative, have the blog owner have some choice about how to send send out automatic posts, such as whenever a new one is posted on the site and so forth. Just starting out, a blogger might not post every day. Would be nice to be able to configure this as growth occurs.

A solid mailer with subscription

I have spent literally HOURS trawling through all the WP mailer plugins. I have specific needs and one of the most important features was the ability for users to subscribe or unsubscribe at any time. Many of the options out there don’t allow this.

Of course Subscribe2 used to be the go-to mailer plugin but since being taken over by that company they have royally ballsed that plugin up, so it was time to look for another one.

What I like about this is the simple custom template feature. If you know (even basic) html, creating your own template is simple.

There’s a widget for the subscription too, which is great.

The only development I would like to see is the ability for the user to choose between immediate notification of every post, or a choice of daily or weekly summary emails. I know of other plugins that do this so I am tempted to run the two plugins together, which is not ideal. I would prefer it if this plugin did that too.
