Newsletters v3.7.8 Release Notes

WordPress Newsletters plugin v3.7.8 release notes.

  • FIXED
    Broken ‘Edit’ links in the ‘Email Templates’ section.
  • IMPROVED
    When sending a post as a newsletter and the configuration is set to use the post excerpt it will use the actual excerpt generated by WordPress rather than truncating manually.
  • IMPROVED
    Queue won’t execute and start running while emails are being queued. This will prevent duplicates.
  • IMPROVED
    The way that the cron_schedules filter hook alters the schedules has been improved to ensure that current/old schedule intervals are not lost but that new ones are simply appended to the array.
  • IMPROVED
    Major MySQL performance improvements have been implemented for queueing and sending emails, importing subscribers and several other tasks. We have successfully imported and queued 30,000+ emails effortlessly.
  • REMOVED
    The attachment name field has been removed when an attachment is added to an email.
  • CHANGED
    PHP mail() has been changed to wp_mail() internally. This gives you more flexibility to use other plugins that rewrite or hook onto the wp_mail() function. Like Configure SMTP for example.
  • REMOVED
    Socket connection settings are no longer available in the plugin. They are not necessary and the wp_mail() function will determine which method to use when sending emails.
  • FIXED
    The [wpmldate] shortcode/variable had a bug which prevented it from outputting the date when emails are queued. It only output the date when emails were sent immediately. This has been fixed.
  • ADDED
    Newsletter theme system has been added which gives you the ability to manage multiple HTML email designs to use when sending newsletters. The plugin is released with 7 beautiful, premade themes for you to start using.
  • ADDED
    A [wpmltrack] shortcode/variable has been added to the system. You can place this shortcode into any theme, template or newsletter and it will serve as a placeholder for the tracking code for each individual email. The email tracking code calls back to your server, marking an email as read when it has been opened.
  • REMOVED
    Send on edit setting has been removed which previously tried to prevent you from sending out the same WordPress post more than once.
  • ADDED
    A 2 minute email schedule interval has been added.
