MailPress 7.0.1

First thing first, MailPress is back (since Friday) in the WordPress plugin repository.

Remember that PHP Mail is not supported anymore. So you have to have a smtp server whether you access it via smtp or sendmail.

To accept international emails, your smtp server needs to support SMTPUTF8

I don’t want to repeat myself, so don’t forget to read the previous posts about 7.0beta, 7.0 RC and 7.0 RC2.

Future enhancements :
Removing Google Map for Open Street Map (done !)
Fixing bugs
Review to be done for revisions and form addon.

Happy New Year !

MailPress 7.0 RC2

Releasing today MailPress 7.0 RC2

After a few mails with WordPress plugin team (the 9th and 10th of this month), i had to review my code once again essentially to sanitize what could be sanitize (quite a few items in fact) using the WP sanitization functions.
These functions are documented in two places : here and here.
That documentation seems a bit inconsistent by the way. I looked the web as well to find the best approach. Obviously tons of links but i selected this one.
Anyway, i tried to keep the best of these worlds to deliver the best :-D .

As an upgrader :

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.
