St Category Email Subscribe


Version 0.9

Plugin to allow visitors to subscribe based on category of posts

Surprisingly there is no plugin available to allow users to subscribe for posts on a wordpress website based on category. A subscriber for one category might not want to receive posts of another category. This plugin will help you to do that. Once a subscriber is added for a particular category, he/she will receive emails as soon as a post is published in that category.

1. Add Subscribers for their desired category<br>
2. Use Widget or Short Code to display Subscriber Form<br>
3. Add the Subscribers manually, or upload in batch from a CSV file<br>
4.Email will be sent to all subscribers as soon as a post is published in that category<br>
5. Translate ready! Help translate in your language.
