Features

  • write and send html/text newsletters, simple like writing posts

  • bounce management: the bounced email addresses are automatically unsubscribed
  • multilanguage: set all texts and options, you can write multilanguage newsletters - full integration with qTranslate, WPML, Polylang

Improvements in v.2 over v.1:

  • now newsletter is a custom post type, using the standard WordPress GUI and API

  • no more multiple or missing sendings to recipients
  • now you can send to a huge number or recipients: it uses a ajax long polling engine to create recipient list
  • some action and filter hooks useful for developer

Customizations

Developers can easily add own code using plugin action and filter hooks.
Inside plugin package there is a mu-plugins folders that contains some useful samples, e.g.: “latest posts” placeholder, “multiple posts” placeholder, include attachments, add custom fields in subscription form.
You can move one or more of those files into wp-content/mu-plugins (if the directory doesn”t exist, simply create it) to activate them.
You can use them as starting point for your development. Other samples at plugin developer page.
