I managed to set up the plug-in just fine and add buttons to my side. But whenever I click the buttons I get the following error-message: Things don’t appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later.

UPDATE TO EVERYONE: If you are using the newest Wordpress page editor, it may be a problem as described in this thread. The solution (Thanks, Robert!) was to install the plugin called « Classic Editor ».

This program works great. I just got done providing free phone support for another WP webmaster, and we want to share this great tidbit of information for anyone just installing this plugin: If you are using the new WP Editor, please download « CLASSIC EDITOR » to remove the new blocks-style editor so that you can see the buttons that this plugin uses to insert shortcode on your pages.

You have to buy the Pro version if you want to customize the email the user gets. What they do get is a receipt from PayPal that they may or may not associate with signup to my site. I don’t know if I want to spend $60 just for use of that feature. We’ll see how it goes.
