does it have a feature like if the email is keep on bouncing for 2 tries it will automatically be deleted..??

I dont want my subscribers to confirm their emails.. Its up to them if they give their real email or not..If they dont sign in with their real email, then they will not get my freebies..Can I set not to confirm ??

Presently there’s no auto-delete for bounces – his is one of the features on my to-do list :)

If you do not want your subscribers to have to confirm, simply un-check “Require email confirmation (‘Double Opt-in’) when users subscribe to this list”

Additionally, you can choose to automatically subscribe everyone who registers to your blog.

Hi, I bought the product and wonder how to put the signing code (name +adress) in a simple squeeze page made in html. I would like to have a wordpress (that handle the responder) + many pages build in html with GoodNews code. Is this possible?

Thanks

It is possible – GoodNews! gives you the option of using the PHP opt-in form (for your site), or HTML/JavaScript opt-in form for your site or any other site.

Can your plugin fulfill following functionality , or you can refer some other plugin for that ?
  • 1. Custom Subscription form designing by admin panel.
  • 2. Multiple options to display – pop-up, inside form , fly, button,
  • 3. Giving user option to opt-for multiple categories .
  • 4. Setting email frequency at the time of subscribing or at later time.
  • 5. Confirmation of email.
  • 6. Opting out the categories or editing subscription options.
  • 7. Manual Email trigger – sending email to category subscribers on different actions such as new content on a category posts, sending fresh email of certain or all posts of the category(s) they subscribed.
  • 8. Design Newsletter
  • 9. Manual Subscription.

1. Custom Subscription – yes, but the code needs to be styled manually, there’s nothing in the admin panel that could do it. 2. Only the the plain opt-in form is available.
3. Users can opt-in for multiple lists.
4. You have full control over the email frequency as the admin.
5. Yes, you can choose between a single and double opt-in.
6. People subscribe to individual lists, not categories. Subscribers can modify their subscription options.
7. New blog posts do not get sent to the list automatically. There’s no connection between individual lists and categories.
8. Yes.,The newsletter design tools are the same as for posts/pages.
9. Yes, you can subscribe people manually, or import them into the lists you specify.

I like your plugin because it looks similar to MyMail. I purchased MyMail for $40 in October but it doesn’t work and to date the author provides no support. So, I’m researching other newsletter plugins with autoresponders but I’d like help with MyMail. I expected it to work but many users have had NO support for over 3 months now and I hesitate to buy another plugin and not get support. How similar is your plugin to MyMail? Is there a demo I can look at? Does it have DKIM? Can I add the autoresponder/opt-in form on another page or site using html? And does it work on mobile devices? Do you have a private support forum I could contact you on?

GoodNews is considerably simpler and easier to use. It does not have all of the MyMail options – for example, there’s no tracking of clicks on the newsletter links (you can track them if you shorten them via goo.gl, but there’s no built-in tracking). One of the 2 outputs for the opt-in forms is HTML/JavaScript, which you can style or place on other pages or sites. It’s standard HTML 5 code that works everywhere. DKIM is not built-in – but there are plugins that would allow you to route the emails and authenticate them for example via Amazon SES. Support is available via http://c-point.com/getsupport

PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS POST. I forgot the checkbox so that I get updates.

I’ve replied to your original post above :)

Hello, im intereseted about your script. Please let me know if I can integrate with Amazon Ses ?

Thank you

Best

GoodNews has no direct integration with Amazon SES. However, by using the free WP SES plugin you can run all outgoing mail through the Amazon SES.

Hi; Plugin super. But it is not compatible with WP 4.2.1. 2 years not update. If you update plugin, I will do purchase. Waiting for your reply. Good work.

Thank you! The plugin works beautifully with WP 4.2.1. It hasn’t been updated for 2 years, but it works well. We’ve mapped out everything that we want to accomplish with the upgrade, but finding time has been hard. We have one project left in the queue before upgrading GoodNews.

Hi, let’s say I have two types of registered user UserListA & UserListB. I require two campaigns one operating on each list exclusively.

I want users who register on one page to be part of one list and on another page users who register will be placed on the other list.

Is this possible or will I need to tweak via custom post types?

No need to tweak anything – it’s easy to send the campaigns that operate on each list exclusively.

Hello DrA,

I’m looking for an autoresponder that will send an email right after they subscribe, then it will send a second one 7 days after the first and then a third one 7 days after that, etc… (time between emails may vary)

So if subscriber one subscribes on Monday, they will get the second email the next Monday and the third email on the next Monday after that etc…

Subscriber two joins on Wednesday and he gets his second email the next Wednesday and his third email on the next Wednesday after that etc and so on and so forth.

All of the emails will be pre-defined but go out every 7 days from the day they subscribe.

The other trigger, aside from actually subscribing to the email, would be triggered when they become a member. Based on their user-role, we want to also send THEM a series of emails based on the level of their membership. Cron would be triggered once per day and would look for any new ‘user-role1’. If there are four new members with ‘user-role1’ it would start sending them the package of weekly emails we have defined for that ‘user-role’. Only catch is that it would need to check to see if they were still that ‘user-role’ before sending the next because they might have upgraded their membership and have a new ‘user-role’ and already receiving the new package of pre-defined emails we have put together for that membership level.

Maybe there’s a better way to do this but I hope you at least get the gist of what we’re trying to accomplish.

Any help, thoughts or suggestions would be sincerely appreciated.

Have a great day…
