Newsletter plugin 4.0
Another major release for the WordPress Newsletter plugin brings us version 4.0. We’ve had several big releases since version 3.0 but this is a major version number with amazing features.
See the release notes of version 4.0 of the Newsletter plugin for a detailed list of added features, improvements and bug fixes. Let’s have a look at some of the highlights.
New feature highlights
Here are some of the amazing features which were added to this version:
Subscribers date range when sending/queuing
When creating a newsletter for sending/queuing, you can now specify the date range to take subscribers from. The date range works with a “From” and “To” date and all subscribers who subscribed within that time period will receive the newsletter accordingly.
Auto recurring newsletters with options
One of the most useful features in this release is the auto recurring newsletters. You can now create a newsletter and have it sent out at a specific interval, starting on a specific date/time and also specify how many times the newsletter should recur before it stops. All other options such as the list(s), theme, attachments, etc apply just like in normal newsletters.
Latest posts subscription preview
A simple preview frame for the Latest Posts Subscription feature of the Newsletter plugin. With this preview, you can see exactly how the next scheduled posts newsletter will look like based on the posts, theme, list(s), etc settings you configured for it.
reCAPTCHA security image
Preventing spam should always be a top priority in a subscribe form to ensure that you get clean subscribes. The Newsletter plugin already has a security captcha image integrated using the 3rd party Really Simple Captcha plugin but Google reCAPTCHA has now been added in addition to that so that you have options. Setting up reCAPTCHA in the Newsletter plugin is very quick and simple, anyone can do it!
TEXT version of multipart emails
If you are sending newsletters using multipart content, you will find the new TEXT version feature very useful. The Newsletter plugin generates the TEXT version of a multipart email automatically by taking the HTML version and making it plain TEXT. If you choose to specify your own, custom TEXT version, you can simply tick the checkbox on the Newsletters > Create Newsletter screen and type it up. Your own, custom TEXT version will then be used for the TEXT part of the multipart email.
You can now easily make a duplicate/copy of an existing newsletter from your sent/draft emails without having to copy values over. Under the Newsletters > Sent & Draft Emails section, a “Duplicate/Copy” link appears below each email which will very quickly copy it for you when clicked.
