Another ReadyGraph (Scammy Plugin)
By , for WP 4.2.2

Read the reviews for the Ready Graph plugin. This is the same thing, just a different name.

Simple Subscribe
By , for WP 4.2.2

I would not recommend using this plugin.
It didn't send my first post to my subscribers using the 9am option. It sent my second post using the "when published" option (the plugin does not recommend using this option?!) yet it's the only one that works for me.
Recently I can't activate any new subscribers to the site.
I'm like everyone else, afraid to do anything in case I loose current subscribers.
Please fix this plugin!

Will it EVER be fixed?
By ,

Still can't see subscriber list or log messages. Does anybody know--If I deactivate this plug-in and get something else, will I lose my current subscriber list?

has been broken for MONTHS
By , for WP 4.2.2

The last WordPress update wrecked this plugin...you can't see your subscribers or do anything else....like activate new ones...They keep saying a fix is in the works but nothing has been done.....use anything else...now they have started a new "feature" called userbase notifications which essentially just spams your subscribers....the real bonus is that they really don't seem to care that they are hurting the businesses that people are working hard to build.....

It increased page load time
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin slows down the whole site by approx 2~3 seconds. It also need to increase the PHP memory_limit to 512M

Not working
By , for WP 4.1.1

A message is displaying saying that an e-mail was sent to confirm the subscription.
The e-mail never arrives.
At the same time, an SQL error is displaying after click Subscribe button.
Here, is not working.

Bad Error
By , for WP 4.1

When I tried to subscribe using the widget I got an SQL error. Worse yet the widget SHOWS THE SQL in the browser so any user can read my table prefix! Not good practice. Promptly uninstalled.

crashed my WP MultiSite
By , for WP 3.9.1

Crashed (whitescreened) my WordPress multisite server immediately upon activation (both in network and single-site activiation modes).

If this happens, delete /wp-content/plugins/simple-subscribe/ to restore your server.

Plugin no longer works
By , for WP 3.9.1

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simple-subscribe/libs/SimpleSubscribe/Frontend.php on line 49

little support
By , for WP 3.9

On a whole i suppose it works.
The simple stuff you expect such as shortcodes going where they are supposed to does not work and only support you get is "rewrite the code"

Jetpack contains a much much better and easier widget in my opinion.
