Hi Halfdata,

I hope you are fine. I was wondering if there is any chance in the future to set up different languages on your plugin. Right now there is any possibility to set up two languages? If not, there is any chance to do that using Layered Popups + Subscribe & Donload Add-on? Maybe I can create 2 popups in different languages. I need the same functionallity of Optin Download: download a document in exchange of name and e-mail of the users and monitoring the leads that arrives on my website.

Thanks in advanced for your support! :-)

Hi. With Layered Popups + Subscribe & Donwload Add-on you can create as many popup (with different design and languages) as you need. :-)

Hi Halfdata.

I would really like to see if the subscribers is verified and how many times they have used their unique download link, both in the log and in the CSV file – is there any chance that you could make that possible? :)

Some “subscribers” is using fake emails and hoping that they are getting a download link anyway, and this is kinda ruin my statistics.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi again.

Not to be rude or anything, but do you have an idea of when you will be looking at the functions? :)

Hi. I’ve just released new version of the plugin. Now it has downloads counter (in Log page and CSV export). Please deactivate the plugin, update it and activate again.

Thank you so much! :)

pls answer my support email..

Replied. ;-)


This plugin looks promising. Important question tho: To comply with the european GDPR, does this plugin use double opt-in for saving e-mail adresses to the database?

Kind regards

BTW. On your link I didn’t find anything about double opt-in.

As I understand it’s enough to enable checkbox that must be ticked by user before submission.

So does this mean there is no double opt-in feature in your plugin?

About the law stuff: (German) Law is a bit tricky to understand. But it’s a fact that you have to use DOI for any type of collecting personal data. Not doing so will/can result in expensive punishments by the state / mad customers / aggressive competition. Easy example: You go to a website and enter my e-mail as a subscription email, to get a goodie. You get the goodie, I get “spam” because I did not want this. ;-) If the website that allows this practice (no DOI) is german, you can be sure it’s only a matter of time until they get sued for it. HTH. :)

Hi, I have just realized I need a pop up to let my users subscribe to download. So I will buy this one of yours: – Will I be able to connect these two plugins to let my users subscribe to download the file from that popup?

What do you mean “connect”?

I made a subscribe to download form and it is working. I just want to display that subscribe to download form in the popup so when user clicks on the button he/she can enter the details and submit so they can get a pdf via email. That is what i need.

No, you can’t show one plugin inside of another. But you can use Layered Popups + Subscribe & Download Add-On to achieve this functionality.

Hi, The mailchimp Add-on for this plugin doesn´t work, before was working. I put again the API key and list ID adn still doesn’t work. Could you check this please? Thanks

I’ve just checked – everything works. Make sure that you use latest version of plugin. If something doesnt work on your side and you want me to check what’s wrong, please extend support period (your support expired unfortunately), provide access to WP dashboard and I’ll check.

Hi, I have two questions.

1. Is it possible to display the content once the user has verified the email? I mean … show the content with a double opt-in?

2. Once a user confirmed their email and encounters another restricted content form, can they access without verifying their email?

Hi. This plugin is not for show/hide content. It is for downloading files. Download link is sent to user by email when he submit it.

Do the e-mails support full HTML and inline-CSS layout?

That’s awesome to hear. That would really complement the features that this plugin has to offer, I think.

Hi. Please update the plugin. New version has this feature. ;-)

Hi. Please, how can I update the plugin? Do I need to reinstall it? Thanks

Correct. Just re-install the plugin.

Hi, is there an integration with mail up? Thanks

Hi. No.

Hi , i am building tender website with 2 taxonomies called categories and locations I want to give email noti to the audience what they has chosen the category in subscription form. it can be possible with your plugins?

Hi. Unfortunately, there is no such feature.

Hey, are your @hotmail account getting the download link? I get the emails, but unfortunately my @hotmail leads never received an email with a link to download my files. For me, it works – and very well – with all the email in the world except hotmail. Is anyone experiencing this kind of problem? Would anyone have a solution? I already asked for support, but the person who answered me could not understand the problem … my wordpress sends email, everything works perfectly, only @hotmail users do not receive download link. I have no way to investigate because I don’t receive any messages either. How could I investigate what is going on?

Please notice, plugins never send e-mails by themselves. They delegate this function to WordPress installation by using wp_mail() function. So, the WordPress is responsible for e-mail sending. Some email services don’t allow to accept emails when sender email address doesn’t belong to the same domain (where website installed) or doesn’t exists. So, please go to plugin’s Settings page and make sure that Sender E-mail address exists and belongs to domain, where website installed.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, the sender email exist and this is the main email of the site. I checked on Spamhaus, url and IP are ok. I understand that plugins never send emails by themselves, but some detail can be causing this issue… I tried everything. The email go to my log page and mailchimp but the user don´t receive the welcome email with the link to download… just hotmail accounts. Impressive.

Thanks for letting me know.

Hi. What is file name for traslations?

opd-pt_PT or halfdata-optin-downloads-pt_PT

opd-pt_PT.po and

I have many different Opt-in forms, that offer different ebooks. If I want to export emails that downloaded a specific product how can I do this. Currently, I can only search for emails or names of subscribers but not narrow down emails to those who downloaded a specific ebook. Can this feature be added?

Hi. Unfortunately, you can export only all emails, but you can filter array of records using Excel, for example.

I see that now. Thank you =)

Hi. Is it possible to add extra fields into the Form? I’d like to add Company Name and Phone number, if possible.

Unfortunately, there is no such feature.
