I have a customized footer and the add-on didn't show up correctly. Andy personally contacted me and helped me correct it. He was polite, and friendly. Thank you so much, and the add-on is awesome!
Great Extension, just needs a Widget, because many people dont scroll to the bottom of the page to subscribe
Andy's support is 2nd to none. When I ran across an issue he helped out with some helpful information, even a possible patch/work-around. And it turned out the problem is not with the plugin, which has been working fine. (Something else is causing the issue I had). Great plugin with good support.
Sometimes I think Andy Can read my mind and see what I need in my forum! Yet another must have and great add-on. Thanks.
Brilliant and extremely useful add-on if you want to keep your users up to date daily with new threads on forum. Simple and effective like many other Andy's add-ons. Thanks!
Good work Andy! This is a great addon which will allow forum members and non-members to get a daily digest of new topics sent to them by email. Thanks!
