4.1 out of 5 stars
This will ruin your site
By ,

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!!

Don't update
By , for WP 4.1

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:

----------SPONSOR AD----------
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

cool plugin
By ,

it works.

Excellent - does what I need it to do
By , for WP 4.0

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!

Plugin rocks my world
By ,

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.

No problems
By ,

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.

Problems with dashboard
By , for WP 4.0

I was hoping after the last version my problems would be over and my readers would again receive new post notifications, but no, no. I have the delete this plugin via ftp.

Someone an alternative? I only want anew post notifier.

Return to greatness
By , for WP 3.9.2

This plugin was a classic and is back to being great.

I guess there were some issues in the past (as there often are with plugins), but now things seem back to working perfectly.

Does what I need and is easy to use.

Used to be good but not now
By ,

This used to be a great plug in and very reliable, but now I find it just doesn't do what it's supposed to do: send all my subscribers an email when I publish anything new :( I would like to find a new subscription plug in, but have built up a list of thousands of subscribers with this one, so it's not as easy as I would like. Very disappointing.

Disabled

Do not install this plugin! Do not sell out your readers/users.

I registered with WP to write this review. After deactivating the plugin on all sites.

The latest reviews - please see the discussions in comments too - are pretty much self-explanatory.

A former must-have plugin was turned into an address stealing spam machine.
