Subscribe2 – Form, Email Subscribers & Newsletters

Description

Summary

Subscribe2 provides a comprehensive ’subscription management and email notification system for WordPress blogs that sends email notifications to a list of ’subscribers when you publish new content to your blog.

A full description of features is below.

Email

Email notifications can be sent on a per-post basis or periodically in a Digest email. Additionally, certain categories can be excluded from inclusion in the notification and posts can be excluded on an individual basis by setting a custom field.

Subscriptions

Subscription requests allows users to publicly ’subscribe (Public Subscribers) by ’submitting their email address in an easy to use form or to register with your blog (Registered Users) which enables greater flexibility over the email content for per-post notifications for the ’subscriber. Admins are given control over the presentation of the email notifications, can bulk manage ’subscriptions for users and manually send email notices to ’subscribers.

The format of the email can also be customised for per-post notifications, Subscribe2 can generate emails for each of the following formats:

  • plaintext excerpt.
  • plaintext full post (Registered Users only).
  • HTML excerpt (Registered Users only).
  • HTML full post (Registered Users only).

If you want to grow your ’subscriber lists, send automated campaigns to huge ’subscriber lists, you should upgrade to weMail.

Privacy Policy

Subscribe2 uses Appsero SDK to collect some telemetry data upon user’s confirmation. This helps us to troubleshoot problems faster & make product improvements. Learn more about how Appsero collects and uses this data.

WP 5.7.1 or + Subsribe2 10.35 Flatsome 3.13 or + Hi, I use this plugin for many years without any problems, but since 1 month, no email is sent. Mail preview don’t work now, I desactivated all other plugins, no effect

I've been using this for a while but it needs a big fix. The plugin should send mail singly and spread out over time rather than all at once. I'm getting complaints from my ISP that the plugin is overloading the server with huge dumps of email. I only have about 1,500 subscribers and if that is overloading then I can only imagine how bad it must be with more popular blogs. Please implement this. I just downgraded my review from five stars to one star. See... there's a problem that this plugin creates: it overloads the servers with email as described above. I just discovered that the developer is offering a fix for that for $29.99 PER FREAKING YEAR!!!!! It was bad enough that the developer creates a problem and then offers to solve it for a fee. It was worse that the fee is kind of high - I finally decided to pay it untill I discovered... It is absurd that the fee is a reoccurring annual subscription. No thanks.

This tool meets our expectations, I would like to recommend.

Seemed to do what I wanted but I cannot get new members to show up as subscribers even after following the developers instructions. Because of this when I make a new post only the admin is emailed. I have to go in manually every time someone subscribes and change their role. Not so automated. If I cannot fix this I will uninstall.
