FAQ

It doesn’t work!

Don’t worry (probably) I can solve the problem. Kindly contact me with as many information as possible (logs, screenshots, and so on).

I don’t understand this or that

Kindly contact me so I can help and update the documentation.

No emails are sent

If the blog can send emails (for example the password recovery email), try to empty the sender name and email on the plugin settings.

Don’t use email addresses like @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, …, since your server is not allowed to send in behalf of those providers.

If you’re using an SMTP plugin, run some tests from that plugin.

Install WP Mail Logging to check if emails are generated.

Delayed emails are not sent in time

A few hours of tolerance is acceptable if your blog has not enough traffic and no custom scheduler trigger has been setup: the internal WP scheduler depends on those factors.

Check the Tools/Site Health panel for warning like “ a job has failed to start” and contact the provider to
deal with the problem and setup a cron trigger for WP (there is a lot of literature about this issue, they know what it means).

Install WP Crontrol to check the status of the WordPress scheduler.

Emails do not look good on Outlook, Gmail, …

I do my best to create fully compatible emails, but clients, especially Outlook and Gmail used to read non
Google mail accounts, have a lot of limitation. Anyway, send us a screenshot using my
contact page, we’re more than happy to check and solve the problem, is possible.

Is there a text part for emails?

No, currently emails are only in HTML.

Why the composer is so simple?

In my option a welcome email needs to be simple and clear, easy readable on mobile devices and with immediate calls to action.
And… is was extracted from the original project I’ve no resources to make it more complex right now (smile).

Can users unsubscribe from emails?

No, this is not a mail marketing or newsletter system, but a small series of transactional emails you want to send after a user action.
In other words, that is not a service to which one can decide to subscribe or unsubscribe (anyway I’m open to discuss a possible evolution).

Is it possible to track opens and clicks?

No, this feature is not present.

Are there API to integrate this plugin with others?

Right now there are no official API, but I have plans to add API to register custom events and
probably custom composer blocks.
