MailPress 6.0 rc

This is a release candidate of MailPress 6.0

It should work on last wordpress release and php >=5.3.3 (swiftmailer last php5 release requirement).

Tested under php 7.2.3 and wordpress trunk.

Major changes are :

  • fixing the security exploit (i asked for a review by wp plugin team)
  • help in admin screens now available and contextual depending of which add-ons and/or tabs (settings) or field (form) are activated.
  • code cleaning (php & html)
  • some admin pages are now sticking to the wp layout (theme, revision)
  • some classes renamed
  • some add-ons integrated and/or suppressed
  • html to text conversion completely reviewed
  • mailpress/mp-includes/action.php is not supported anymore, this means that the links in your old mails will point to a file that may not work. You may have to code a little bit to make it work on your site.

and last but not least, if you are using an external scheduler for one or all your batches (Settings > MailPress > Batches), the former url pointing to mailpress/mp-includes/action.php has changed for security reasons and must be modified in your external scheduler (url(s) provided in Settings > MailPress > Batches).

For tests only ! Thank you for your feedback.

MailPress 5.4.2

Just released MailPress 5.4.2

This version fixes a bug in mailinglist dropdown lists introduced by changes in WordPress 4.2 (latest version of WorPress is 4.2.1, upgrade due to a vulnerability in comments) .

This version also brings a new feature when using the Embed add-on. Youtube videos are now inserted with a thumbnail where a “play” button has been inserted (requires php extension ‘GD‘).

WordPress 4.2 and MailPress

4 days ago, WordPress introduced a new version : 4.2 .

A tiny change in the taxonomy toolbox (support of parameter ‘name’ in get_terms() function) changed the behavior of MailPress when using Mailinglist add-on .

This impacts mostly dropdown lists where mailinglists are involved.

A fix currently under test is available in the WP plugin repository as the Development version.

It can also be downloaded at this link.

MailPress 5.4.2 should be available in a few days – as the current MailPress version – if no other bugs are reported.

Thank you for your support.
