Not to start a new discussion on this post, but I haven't had much luck/response with my own posts and hope you guys could help me out. Our church is about to make the move to WordPress.org with a host and have two pressing needs before we make the jump. They may seem minor to some, but they're big for our congregation.
Here's my post. Hope someone can help me ASAP. We have a meeting about the future of building our site tomorrow. Thanks!
Please read the entire message before suggesting a plugin I've already tried. Some of those include PrayBox, Amen and Prayer Engine. Thanks!
I'm looking for two types of plugins that will work well with a WordPress.org site hosted on Blue Host. The plugins would be used on a church website (does not exist yet).
Prayer Requests - I want members to be able to post prayer requests right to the website (without having to login to do that). There are plenty of plugins for prayer requests, but here's where my needs are a little different. Congregation members like to receive a notification (from our current/old site) every time a prayer request is added. Essentially, I'm looking for a plugin where folks can subscribe to our mailing list and receive an email every single time (no daily limits) someone enters a prayer request.
Message Board - now something similar here too. It would basically function the same as the prayer request plugin described above, but would be for news, announcements and celebrations from congregation members. It really needs the same "subscribe to the mailing list" feature that shoots an email out each time a post is made.
Hope someone can help me find great plugins to solve these issues.
