Yes these names are getting really original aren’t they! This little plugin works hand in hand with Satollos Newsletter plugin for WordPress which is a little crude but does the trick. I don’t entirely agree with the Lite version being free and the Extras package not but we all have to make money I suppose.
I had a couple of requests for clients that use the plugin regardless so instead of playing with the core and, therefore, making it unupdateable (is that a word?), I decided to write a plugin that will only work is the Newsletter plugin is installed.
My features are simple:
- Import all WP users as Newsletter Subscribers
- Import all WP commenters (whether they like it or not) as Newsletter subscribers
- Import a TSV or CSV string (textarea copy in method) Import
- Comment post auto subscribe with opt out checkbox
The entire plugin focuses on getting you subscribers albeit not in a necessarily good way. I suppose I could make the plugin a little more ethical by not bypassing the double opt in. Any one interested in me doing this say so and I shall re-release with an option either way (or better, just do what the newsletter plugin itself is set to do).
This was written in a couple of hours so is a little crude but gets the job done. Feel free to take it and use it if you feel that your newsletter subscriber counts could do with a little ‘help‘
