This seems like a great concept. The plug-in covers the things that a lot of people would like to have, and what’s there is pretty good. But I’ve had some issues with the interface–and then with the people who are designing the software. Specifically, I lost a lot of work by inadvertently hitting (something?)–then learned there was nothing in place to save drafts or backup. Apparently, the Wysija folks took issue with my tone (frustrated, not nasty) and got very defensive. I didn’t think much about it.
More recently, when I returned to a WordPress install I had been working on for quite a while but had moved to the back burner, there was a message to update Wysija, which I did. At the end of the process, there was another message from Wysija, apparently very personally addressed to me and/or the organization for which I was building the website (a non-profit kitten rescue operation), saying that they had to get “stars to keep from killing more kittens.” Personally, I place this in the realm of the completely bizarre and warped and–obviously–not professional or competent or even entirely sane.
There are other programs. If the Wysija people think “killing kittens” is cute or funny or clever, then I think a lot of people will want to explore those other programs.
