Add a real newsletter to your blog. In seconds. For free. With unlimited emails and subscribers.
I installed the plugin but it didn't see my existing subscribers, so I had to find another plugin to export the subscribers, then reimport them to this plugin. After this I sent the email, but for 42,000 subscribers, it takes time - currently its sent out nearly 7000 in about 3 days (it's limited to about 00 per hour). That means that I can't send from WordPress to all subscribers quickly - it will take a couple of weeks. That's not the plugin's fault - it the limit set by the hosting companies. However, of the 7000 newsletters that have gone out as I write this, only one has been opened. And guess what? I opened it! I found the email in my spam even though I'd sent a test email and told my spam filter it wasn't spam - the live email ended up there again. So I found it, but no-one else has trawled their spam to read the email newletter. Gutted!
Poor, considering the bugs in this and the paid extensions that half of don't work properly unless you have a vanilla WP theme with no other plugins.
Could have spent less on a proper paid newsletter plugin.
I can translate the mails and success-/error-messages only, but not the backend.
My client cannot understand english so this plugin is useless for him.
You write "fully translatable from administrative panels" as a feature, but it's not a feature... There are Plugins where you can easiely translate mo/po-files.
I got no support for the pro version for 2 months now, the follow up plugin became a blank textarea without even changing anything except updating wordpress and the plugin...
Also the plugin looks still in alpha step with many todo's.
About to ask for a refund
The plugin create a 500 internal error on the wp-admin page : the wp admin is inaccessible. I must go to the db to desactivate the plugin and log me on the admin !
500 internal error due to this error :
`PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/www/[...]/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/users/users.php' (include_path='.:') in /var/www/[...]/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/plugin.php on line 1158
Cannot import custom values which renders this plugin useless for professional use.
Although it seems to have a great potential and it's solid, this plugin in it's actual state (3.4.2) has very confusing configuration options, bad documentation, and the so-called Newsletter Extensions (for sending posts automatically) are no where to be found.
