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.

There is a lot of information about Subscribe2 in the ReadMe file installed with the plugin and also available here, this site, the FAQs and the old GetSatisfaction forum.

If you have an issue that you can’t immediately find an answer for then keep looking! The vast majority of support requests I get are related to failed emails and these are almost always due to server restrictions imposed by your hosting provider.

If you still really want my direct help then make a donation. In the last year I think I’ve spent over 300 hours (about 2 whole weeks without sleep time) supporting people for free and I simply cannot continue to do this.

If you use this plugin consider making a donation to support future development!
