Support » Plugin: Newsletter » Had to remove today

  • I have used the plugin for over 2 years with moderate success and was mostly happy especially with the Newsletter generator.

    One thing it doesn’t allow is embedding outside of sidebar or widgets.

    The BIG one and why we had to suddenly remove was the intense level of spam we were receiving over the past 72 hours. Mostly from a certain country just east of Europe.
    This plugin would be much better if it had some kind of Captcha element or “I’m not a robot” device.

    Hi, actually it’s not a fault of the plugin if you’re targeted by a spam bot… anyway you can rise the timing of the antiflood system on subscription configuration panel, and ask the provider to black list the offending ip addresses.

    Adding a captcha is not so definitive, since there is an ajax service to subscriber as well. Active filtering is the best option, we’re working to add more checks and blocks.

    Stefano.
