Sends a list of subscribers an email notification when new posts are published to your blog. Automate user growth through ReadyGraph integration.
I've used this plug-in on another website and it worked fine. However, on depressionhelptips.com, it crashed the whole site during the activation process. I had to access delete the plug-in folder to make the processes quit. It wasn't pretty :-(
Recently the plugin owner integrated it with ReadyGraph.
Since then it is pure spam, because you can disable ReadyGraph only with hacks.
Moreover, it only allows for 100 users.
Don't install it, don't lose your time.
More details here:
This plugin does it's job very well and the support has been excellent, although it's mostly been from the previous developer.
I haven't activated ReadyGraph so can't say anything about that, but the core plugin does all I need it to, which is to send out a digest email automatically.
My Dashboard started showing blank pages so I manually installed WP 4.1.1 but this was worse. Eventually deleted Subscribe2 and hey pesto back to normal!
It installs a little banner for "readygraph" which is on all your pages, no way to disable it. It also ruins your site on mobile. No setting to disable it; you just have to uninstall the entire plugin. DO NOT INSTALL!!
Simple fix if you already have an earlier version without ReadyGraph installed: Don't update.
The new version certainly does email your subscribers of new post updates however they also use your list to market Clickbank products.
Example below. They call it the sponsor ad and if you are also trying to market similar items its not good for your userbase to see this type of email:
http://bloggpro.massppv.euchre24.hop.clickbank.net/ Discover the Insider Secrets
to Quickly and Easily Building Your Own HUGE Opt-In List of Hungry Subscribers.
That email was only sent today by ReadyGraph and already it shows the message when clicked "This site is no longer in service or has been disabled due to a terms of service violation."
Just stick with subscribe2
*** I chose 1 star as thats what i believe the new money hungry thieves should get but it shows as 5 stars! Go figure
I've also struggled to build my visitors and get them to signup. And I'm always looking for a convenient way to get them to come back.
This plugin is great for a bunch of reasons:
1. it's really easy to install and configure
2. it does what it says it will
3. i don't have to use multiple plugins and can just focus on this one (for this purpose)
4. developers get back to you if you email them
Overall I've had a good experience!
It can do A LOT. But really it's a reliable way to do a few key things without having to worry about them. Get people to sign up for my site, and then send them email updates when I add new content to my site.
If you want more users on your site and you want them to stay updated, I can't think of a better option. Developers did a good job.
I have been using this plugin for more than 2 years. I have had no problems with it. It seems to work fine and does what it says - I am on the email list and I get a message every post, so I presume everyone else does too. I'm surprised other people have had issues.
