An amazing update of our WordPress Newsletters plugin has been released.
Version 220.127.116.11 casts focus on some key areas of the subscribe forms interface and it includes many enhancements as well to improve the experience of the plugin. See the detailed release notes for more information and have a look at some of the highlights below.
New Feature Highlights
We are certain that you will love these new features included in this update:
Multilingual Subscribe Forms
You can now fill in values on all subscribe forms under Newsletters > Subscribe Forms in each of the languages using qTranslate-X or WPML. Everything is multilingual from the form title, the various parts of each individual custom field on the form, the success message/redirect, etc.
One form for one purpose and multiple languages with seamless language switching.
Custom CSS per Subscribe Form and New CSS Editor
Each subscribe form now has a Custom CSS section which is optional and can be used to style the subscribe form specifically if you are a designer or you have CSS knowledge. The CSS is in nested SASS format and will be automatically compiled to only apply to all elements within the specific subscribe form.
For the Custom CSS per subscribe form as well as the global custom CSS available in the configuration section of the plugin, a new CSS editor has been made available with beautiful syntax highlighting, indentations as well as suggestions and warnings on how your CSS can be improved or fixed.
Styling Section per Subscribe Form
A user-friendly styling section now allows you to completely transform each subscribe form into something unique. You can set layout, colors, backgrounds, borders, border radius and more. Many settings are available to give you complete flexibility and we are open to feedback to add more styling settings.
The possibilities are endless. You can have horizontal forms or full forms and choose to show/hide errors, labels, captions, etc.
SparkPost API with Webhooks
Added to the list of available SMTP relay APIs in the Newsletters plugin is SparkPost. SparkPost’s REST API was integrated for sending emails and the webhooks have also been integrated for events such as delivery, open, click, bounce, unsubscribe, etc. That way your stats will remain accurate at all times! All you have to do is fill in your SparkPost API key.
We are working on other APIs at the moment such as Mailjet and SendPulse but in the meanwhile you can use any type of relay service using the SMTP settings in the plugin.
Send bulk emails with ease in WordPress using SparkPost.
Queue Batches & Emails Display
As you know, we introduced a new queuing system recently which is very fast and reliable but as a result the individual emails display in the Newsletters > Email Queue page was removed. We have restored this so that users can see batches and emails waiting in the queue with all information.
We hope that you have enjoyed the new queuing system and how well it performs. Our users are able to queue thousands and even hundreds of thousands of emails in just a few seconds. It just works so well.

- Mandrill API added back in for Mailchimp users
