WordPress Autoresponder

Posted on by Frank Haywood

Offer Closed


Today (Wednesday 21st) at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST), I’m kicking off a 48 hour sale for my niche WordPress Autoresponder plugin at a never before seen price of just $10.

There is also an *optional* extra purchase ($7) of another plugin that works quite well with it, read on to find out more.

It’s ideal for when you put up niche blogs and you want to QUICKLY place an optin form…

…but don’t want all the hassle of setting it up with your autoresponder service.

I believe it’s the only one of its kind, certainly the only one I’m aware of that does sequenced autoresponder *and* broadcast emails too amongst other things.

WordPress AutoResponder Sequences


AutoResponder Key Features

  • Sign up form shortcode and widget, OR an HTML form
  • Timed, sequenced autoresponder messages
  • Broadcast messages
  • Email %variables% for name, unsubscribe link, etc
  • Email log – resend individual messages
  • Import/export subscribers via CSV
  • Manually add and remove subscribers
  • Client/flipper (developer) licence included

It’s quite a big plugin in terms of functionality and it’s very cool to be able to quickly add a sign up form to your niche blogs.

WordPress AutoResponder Menu

The reason I had it developed is (as usual) to meet my own requirements. I needed a quick and simple to use autoresponder that I could install on my own niche blogs and also on my clients’ sites too.

My reasoning is that it’s a bit of a hassle to set up and gather subscribers with any of my niche blogs as I always felt it a bit of a pain to go through the whole process with one of my autoresponder services. It takes too long and it’s overkill.

I also didn’t want to use a service with any clients’ sites as I felt it was just unsuitable for such puposes. And I didn’t want to tie their sites into any services I was paying to run my own business.

So I had the WordPress AutoResponder plugin (WPAR) built.

You install and activate it and within 2 minutes you can add a sign up form to your blog via a simple short code tag or you can use a widget in a widgetised area (sidebar).

WordPress Autoresponder Widget

Optionally you can create your own form if you want extra control over the appearance.

And then right away you have the ability to gather subscribers.  :-)

They also automatically become WordPress subscribers on sign up, and vice-versa, which is more useful than you might think.

WordPress AutoResponder Broadcast

It’s gone through quite a lot of changes since I first released it to a small number of people and it’s now at v1.4.6.

You can view the regular sales page for the WordPress AutoResponder here, but don’t buy from that page, buy from here instead when the sale is live.

While this sale is active, the price of the WordPress AutoResponder plugin is a staggering $10 discounted down from the normal price of $47.


Subscribers Only Plugin

As an OPTIONAL additional purchase, you can also get the Subscribers Only plugin. This is a tool to lock content on your site so that only logged in subscribers can see it.

Subscribers Only

The idea behind this is you create a useful post or page, but then withhold a crucial piece of key information using the plugin. In order for the reader to view this key information, they have to become a WP subscriber.

Subscribers Only

It’s surprisingly effective.  ;-)

Happily, courtesy of the WordPress AutoResponder plugin, when they become a WordPress subscriber they also become a member of your mailing list and begin to get timed autoresponder messages in the sequence you’ve set up.

This additional plugin is a further $7.

In other words your purchase choices today and for the next 48 hours(ish) are the WordPress AutoResponder for just $10, or both plugins for $17.

And that’s it.

Get BOTH plugins today for $17 or pay nearly 3 times that when it’s over.

    Can I use the plugins with SMTP service providers? For example,, like integrated with send mail? Or with the plugins one can only use it with the hosting server to send emails.

    Does the plugin allow the ability to set how many emails that gets send out per hour?

    Thank you

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Danny,

      By default it uses the standard WordPress functions to send mail. But there are a number of free plugins that provide SMTP support, just do a search – I believe one of them was created by the WP development team. As long as your SMTP service allows you to use username and password and specify the port etc, pretty much any do the plugins should do fine.

      I used to provide a separate plugin that provided SMTP support plus throttling, but one of the many WP updates killed it and I haven’t bothered getting it fixed as it was one of those plugins that was more trouble than it was worth. :roll:

      Maybe one of the free ones now support throttling.

    Hi Frank

    I purchased this from you when you launched it originally and used to great effect on a project I was running at the time so I know it works and did the job extremely well so I would happily recommend it to anyone want a good fully functioning autoresponder.

    However my question is this, I lost my download link and I just tried to set up an autoresponder from that original download I had and it was not fully functioning, do I need to re-purchase or can you tell me where to find a link to re-download from my original purchase.

    • Geoff Lord says:

      Hi Frank
      another question, does your autoresponder support or allow you to create additional fields in the “form”. I just had a look at my version (V 1.3.3) which does not support creation of fields in contact us form.

      • Frank Haywood says:

        Hi Geoff,

        No it doesn’t as it’s not something I needed myself. :roll:

        What you could do is get people to subscribe first and then redirect them to a page where you gather any other information from them. OR…

        You could use a plugin that *does* support field creation such as a contact form, and as long as it also adds the user to the WP subscribers list, you can set the option to automatically add them as autoresponder subscribers too in the settings.

        So they would be subscribing via another plugin, but would still get any emails you sent out. :-)


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Geoff,

      Yes this version is at 1.4.6 and you get the new update as part of your original purchase. As soon as I’ve uploaded the new package I’ll re-send your email with your download link. :-)

      Just to let you know I’ve streamlined it and had some of the requirements removed so you shouldn’t have any problems with the new version and I can confirm that it works nicely with WP 3.9.1.


      • Geoff lord says:

        Thanks Frank,
        As usual your service is impecable ;)

        It’s really apprecited when customers know that they can rely on a vendor to be honest and reliable.

        Geoff Lord

        • Frank Haywood says:

          Hi Geoff,

          Thanks for that. When I’m on it then yes it is, but unfortunately I can’t always trust my hires to do as I expect of them and I’ve had some testing times this year again…


      • Derek Taylor says:

        Hi Frank! Would you re-send the email with my download link too? I went to the page I had bookmarked but shows and error. The error says, “Installation errors have been found: Your downloadable product does not exist at (download location). Please upload your product file or update the path in the config file!”


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Geoff,

      I’ve just found and re-sent your original order email. I’m sorry about the delay, but I’ve been ill and had problems with support staff (again!)…


  3. Maury says:

    Hi Frank – is this the same plugin I bought from you a couple of years ago? Same name, at least?


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Maury,

      Yes it is. When I release this at 6.00 today, you can go to your download page and get the new package. :-)


  4. Wes says:

    Hi, Frank –

    Are these plugins available as part of the PluginGreat monthly membership ?
    I ask because it wasn’t mentioned as such.

    Keep up the good work !
    - Wes

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Wes,

      Yes, you can take it as read that any plugin I release or re-release will end up in the membership. :-)

      There may be one or two instances where I JV with someone and the product won’t be in the membership, but I’ll let you know if that’s ever the case.


  5. Armin says:

    Hi Frank,

    I think I’ve bought this plugin already years ago.
    Can you please tell me, where I can download it once again?

    Thanks in advance,

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Armin,

      I’ll re-send your order email when I upload the new package, assuming that you *have* bought it. I’ll let you know if not. :-)


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Armin,

      I just sent you the link to your download page, I’m sorry about the delay, I’ve had a few problems at this end which I’m gradually sorting out.


      • Armin says:

        Hi Frank,

        thanks for sending the download link. I’m sorry to hear, that you were ill and I hope now you’re going well again…

        Unfortunately the download link you just sent doesn’t works and I’ve already answered your email in regarding this!


        • Frank Haywood says:

          Hi Armin,

          I just checked and it now works, but the link you sent me isn’t the correct one for some reason. I’m just answering your email now. :-)


  6. Ely says:

    Hi Frank,

    Does the autoresponder work with UTF-8 encoding?


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Ely,

      Sorry, I should have said – it sends text only emails, so I guess yes? I’m not an expert in text/HTML encoding – in fact I’ve always found it a little confusing. I’m sorry my answers not better than that.


  7. Jim says:

    If I wanted to collect – name, email and phone number… would I be able to do that with this plugin?
    I’m thinking about setting up a squeeze page for a local client campaign.

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Jim,

      No, it’s strictly name and email address. See my comment to Geoff about how to work round this.


  8. Jim says:

    Okay, thank you. That makes sense. Having the contact form that’s connected makes sense.
    I had one of those “why didn’t I think of that” moments after reading it :)

  9. David Weaver says:

    Hi Frank,

    I have the same problem as others in that I can’t find the original download link.
    At your leisure please forward the link.
    Thanks a lot!

    David Weaver

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Dave,

      Sorry about the huge delay. I’ve been ill and had problems with support staff disappearing…

      Now sent.


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi David,

      I’m sorry about the delay. I’ve just re-sent your original order email. While doing so, I noticed that you were the very first buyer of this plugin. ;-)


  10. HaRa says:

    Hello Frank…

    Can You please explain what You mean with
    “…They also automatically become WordPress subscribers on sign up, and vice-versa, which is more useful than you might think.”

    And why is this useful???
    I rather frown sharing my – or my clients – subscribers with someone else !!



    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi HaRa,

      I’m sorry for the delay in replying, I’ve been ill.

      Don’t worry, you’re not sharing your subscribers with anyone. :-)

      What I meant was, if someone joins your blog as a standard WordPress subscriber (you may have this turned off), then you can also automatically add them as WordPress AutoResponder subscribers too.

      And for vice-versa, if they join your mailing list via the WordPress AutoResponder, then they also become standard WordPress subscribers too.

      So it’s all kept within your own WordPress installation and not shared with anyone. ;-)


  11. Derek Taylor says:

    I have the Subscribers Only plugin already. I thought you might have updated since I originally bought it so I went to my download page and got and error when I clicked on the download link that said, “Download error – We could not direct you to your download page. Please contact the site administrator.”

    Would you let me know when download link is working again? Thanks Frank!

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Derek,

      I’m sorry about the delay. I’ve fixed the page so you *should* be okay now. :-)


  12. Petur says:

    Hi Frank!

    I purchased this from you when you launched it originally. I just tried to download from that original download I had and it was not fully functioning at all, do I need to re-purchase or can you tell me where to find a link to re-download from my original purchase.

    (Installation errors have been found:)

    (Your downloadable product does not exist at /home/plugingr/files/unzip-me-to-install-WPAutoResponder.zip. Please upload your product file or update the path in the config file!

    Idea: In the future on the download pages, when you update can you put the date
    above the link then people can see when you did the last update for each product.

    Kind regards,

    Petur Thorvaldsson

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Petur,

      Sorry about the delay – illness and other things…

      Fixed and done, you should get the email where requested. :-)


  13. Petur says:

    Hi Frank!

    I just clicked on the new link you sent to me and it is not working =expired?
    I sent you a e-mail and submitted a support ticket to?

    Take care Frank

    Petur Thorvaldsson

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Petur,

      I just checked the link and it seems to work okay for me so I’m not sure what’s going on – it shouldn’t expire. You want to try it again?
