I am a user for the past 2 years of newsletter pro.
It was working fine but now I have a problem that feed by mail testing does not work so I can’t see changes I make in the newsletter theme I created.
Should I upgrade to Newsletter from Newsletter pro?
If so, Where can I find upgrade instruction?
Thanks?April 24, 2013 at 2:13 pm #7984begoParticipant
I have exactly the same issue. How do I migrate from Newsletter Pro 2.x to Newsletter 3.x WITHOUT losing the existing subscribers and their attributes? This also includes the migration to the new ‘Feed by mail’-module.
Is there a step-by-step guiding document available?
Thanks, Stefano, for some guidance!

Stefano why are you not answering?
Please respond to the questions raised here.April 29, 2013 at 11:09 pm #8024
Hi, as I wrote to all customer (via direct email) you should wait still a bit of time before move from newsletter pro to free with modules, since the modules are tested but migration is not still stable.
So, right now, you should keep the pro version. I’m already writing the migration path but since some themes of feed by mail must be recoded, the module is not fully ready (or it is ready if you want to reconfigure it and use a different theme).

Thank you for the response.
I didn’t get the mail so this is news to me.
So are you saying the only unstable thing right now in the migrating process is the feed by mail themes?
the migration of the subscribers and all other related information (like forms etc’) is stable?
Also, if I migrate to the new free newsletter + modules will I have to pay for the membership fee?

The modules are available only to members. Customers who bought the pro version have been transformed to members (so they now can download even the comment plus plugin).
Actually I’m using Newsletter 3 on every my blog, I pratically dismissed the pro version BUT when I found a bug it’s easy for me to patch it on the fly.
Anyway the follow up and reports modules are stable, and even the sendgrid. The feed by mail is stable for new installation, there could be only few little issue for who migrate from the pro version (if that module was used).

So let me get it right,
If I want to migrate to newsletter 3,
everything will work including fedd by mail IF the installation in new?
How do I migrate all my subscribers?
I am asking because there is some malefunction in the feed by mail in my newsletter pro, and I need it working.May 1, 2013 at 3:15 pm #8039
The subscribers do not need to be migrated, the plugins are compatible each others (version pro, 3.0, 2.5 and so on).
If you’re using the feed by mail of newsletter pro, just wait some more time until the themes inside the module for the version 3.0 are complete.

few more quastions if you will…
If I don’t use the feed by mail themes you included but my own themes, will it be stable?
What is the upgrade process of the plugin?
What if I make a new instalation, how do I migrate my subscribers?May 1, 2013 at 4:14 pm #8041
If you’re using your own theme, you should update them starting from the example code of the default theme. Yours probably works, but the code it’s simpler on using the new format.
About subscribers’ migration, you means you are moving them to another blog? If the blog is the same, no migration is needed, all plugin’s versions uses the same tables on the database.
Stefano.May 1, 2013 at 4:50 pm #8042
so if I just disable newsletter pro and install newsletter, will this just work? no upgrade needed?
There are no obsolete tables?
Also, when do you think the themes will be finished?
