      Uhh...where do we download the update?

      From purchased products, I just went to download it...How large is this file? It got to 70.2MB...and I canceled it. It can't be that large...can it?

      The product download always pulls the most recent update. Give it a shot now

      I just upgraded and sent out my newsletter. Great job! Just a few comments (I write code for a living myself, so I hope you don't mind the detail. Nothing about your coding prowess is meant by it. I really appreciate what you're doing here!)...

      Note: I tried uploading my edited file for you to see, but it was too large.

      • In 2_column mode, I find it more convenient to have the featured post as the only item in the left column. I moved the Latest Threads, followed by News to the top of the 2nd column. (I am not using 3-column mode, but that's imbalanced as well)
      • The subscribe/unsubscribe link takes one to their control panel, but the default for that page is to show subscribing/unsubscribing options for threads, not the newsletter, which is misleading. For myself, I changed the link to go to profile.php?do=editoptions


      In light of this, here are some cool features you might consider:
      1. Add the "No" designator to the options page.
      2. Write a script that will change someone's subscription from the Yes designator to the No designator, and then link to that instead of the control panel. (In addition to being more convenient, it's more in line with services like Constant Contact, which allow one- or two-click unsubscribing.)
      3. Provide a way to configure columns. If you don't mind the code bloat, you could repeat every item in every column within conditionals that switch on their choices, or you could just have an order, and the code just plugs in #1, #2, #3, but then your customers (like myself) might have more trouble editing if we desire... tradeoffs.

      Are you updating for 4.0?

      Is there any way to prevent members seeing the "Live newsletter" and make the first newsletter they see when following the link the latest newsletter?

      Support here is terrible, emails, PMs and a post here (when eventually i was able to) all ignored. I won't be recommending this site or products in fact i'd probably deter people - good product, support sucks!
