    Hello there, I have just figure out how to make it work and I want to thank you for this great plugin.

    I have one issue....

    The php mail is sending 3 copies of the same mail to the receiver with the attached card.

    hi daishizen,

    that sounds strange. can you give you configuration for the plugin please.
    do you use confirmation mode for sender and/or receiver? I guess you use php mail and not smtp mail. do you send the cards as a mail or just a link so the receiver must fetch the card at the site?

    I need this info to track down your problem.

    thanks in advance

    hey Manu,

    I jsut tested it with your settings at my site and it works correctly. means I got one email to the recipient and one as a copy to the sender. testing it at your site results in three mails to the recipients and three mails to the sender (when checking cc to sender).

    so, the next step is to have a look at the plugins you use. I suppose you use wordpress 3.3? can you give me the list of the plugins you use please.

    I think we will locate the problem soon

    hi Manu,

    please deactivate wordpress.com stats and simple facebook connect and try again.

    does it work?

  8. daishizen

    Yes it worked, thank......
    How can I have this plugin activated and make wp-greet work fine?

    Thank you

    Well, that is the next step. It seems plugins using a redirect causing wp-greet to be called multiple times and that is why multiple mails being sent. I will now go into deeper analysis to fix this incompatibility.

    stay tuned.

    okay, it seems it is the simple facebook connect plugin which causes the problem. can you try to activate the stats plugin and test it it works please?

  11. daishizen

    It works fine with stat plugin,
    I wasn't really using facebook connect,
    o I really appreciate your effort,

    Thank again and again,
    if you have a solution for using it with facebook connect activated let me know.

    It is a bit tricky with facebook connect. I will add this to my todo list but rather than make it compatible with fb connect I will add a faeture which assures that each card is only send once. so it will be compatible with all plugins using wp-redirect in the way fb connect does.

    Hi tuxlog (and everyone)

    I've just installed your plugin. I am getting the same problem. The recipient gets the same email twice instead of just once.

    I have the following additional plugs installed :

    Advanced Random Posts
    Fast Secure Contact Form
    NextGEN Gallery
    Search By Category
    Ultimate TinyMCE
    Widgets on Pages

    I turned off "Fast Secure Contact Form" to see if that was affecting it.. but no luck... the recipient is still getting two emails.

    Any help ?

    I would recommend you disable all plugins and then switch them on one by one, so you can see which one uses redirects and breaks wp-greet. I am still working on this. Your results would be interesting for us.

    Regards, Hans

    p.s. I would start with Wibiya toolbar and Modal Dialog and maybe Nico Slider

    Hello all,

    I have just uploaded a new beta version of wp-greet you can fetch it from here:


    Hopefully, it will send the mails only one time now. Since there are many constellation out there I have only tested a few.

    Thank you for your patience and your feedback.
