Need help or support:

If you need help to find you way around the many features of Subscribe2 or are finding your way setting it up for the first time you should consider the guide produced independently by the iAssistant. The guide is 40+ pages long and it provides an in depth set of instructions and descriptions of Subscribe2 features.

Version 5.0 introduced a new support model for the plugin. Previous posts explain the issues and my proposed solution. To seek support read the support forum. If you have a bug, please report it on the forum.

If you have an issue that you can’t find an answer for then by all means post your question BUT if you get no response it is because the answer is already available or the problem is pretty unique to your install. In these cases be prepared to pay for assistance – ONLY the plugin is free!
