Support » Plugin: SpeakOut! Email Petitions » Works quite nicely, could be better

    As there is just one single developer on this plugin (for free), this is very good work. The plugin works without issues and has one single purpose that it does well.

    Most of the drawbacks are related to the design:
    – it’s difficult to change how the form fields and petiton text is displayed. I would like to display the petition text above the fields, but that seems difficult without editing the php code. If not as an settings option, maybe at least some filters to control the output?
    – the default CSS-design is a bit dated. A more modern style option would have been nice. Of course I used my own CSS-file instead, so no worries.
    – I had to add some CSS to make it responsive. If I set it to width 50% with the shortcode, it would show with 50% width on mobile as well.

    Some of the settings should be moved for consistency:
    – The options for view in admin-settings should be moved to Screen Options.
    – The options for CSV-download in the admin settings would also be better to handle as a filter in the Signatures screen.

    Edit: I originally gave this plugin a three-star due to the issues mentioned above, but due great support, I’ve changed it to five.
    Still would be better with the above issues fixed, but great support is a win.

    Hi. I have now added an option to hide the petition text in the petition, this means you can display it above the petition in the actual WP page.

    I forked this plugin from a useful but abandoned one. There are quite a few legacy issues that I am getting to slowly, but this is a labour of love, things that pay rent get priority ;o)

    If you have coding skills and would like to contribute, I am always happy to include it.
