Newsletters Config: Latest Posts Subscriptions

Newsletters  > Configuration > Latest Posts Subscriptions


Latest Posts Subscriptions

This feature sends out latest posts on an predefined interval. However, it only sends an excerpt of the latest post. The posts show featured images defined for posts using the standard WordPress the_post_thumbnail() function.

To change the way the emails of the Latest Posts Subscriptions feature looks, feel free to edit under Newsletters > Configuration > System Emails > Latest Posts. You may make HTML changes and there is a list of shortcodes available to use. All Newsletter plugin and 3rd party shortcodes are fully supported as well.
