Easy to install and use to create issue based publications.
What impressed me the most was the extent that IssueM developers went to help me out to customize my theme code to work with their plugin code (especially since I am a beginner and needed plenty handholding), to specify the pagination for only articles within each issue.
Very professional, quick, helpful, and generous! They offered quick and detailed responses, as well as patience, to all of my questions!
Thank you for a great plugin and awesome service, would definitely recommend for all
I recently designed a website for a client who has published a monthly magazine for years, was looking for a way to deliver it online going forward (with an option for people to download past issues in PDF format). They were very happy to discover IssueM and are now using it on their live WordPress site.
It basically creates a custom post type called Article and lets you organize them into Issues, and assign Categories and Tags to each article. It has some good widgets and shortcodes to display things like the current issue's contents, a page listing all past issues, a page of all articles by a specific author, a basic slider that displays featured images and links to any articles you designate as "featured", etc.
I had to contact the plugin's support staff several times to ask how to do some things (or to help me troubleshoot some plugin conflicts), and they always responded quite quickly, with helpful suggestions. Many thanks to the developers for this very useful - and free - magazine publishing plugin!
There are still a few elements that could -and hopefully will- help the integration of the magazine within the blog.
Searching by author could bring the articles and not just the blog posts, idem for the different "author box" plugins, that is for me the next big step.
But in the end, every powerful feature brings in so much, I don't want to loose everything I have now just because I want more !
I would totally recommend this plugin.
This plugin has a bright future!
Made my magazine building experience simple and fun!
