… from russian farmers !?!
Just to get you posted, there are several bugs identified in 7.0.1
- creating mysql tables, some sites are not creating mailpress mailmeta and usermeta tables on install,
- tracking_rewrite_url (wrong link) and may be new rewrite rule,
- comment mail do not retrieve properly title post
- may be more …
A 7.0.2 version is on its way …
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 !)
Review to be done for revisions and form addon.
Happy New Year !
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
As an upgrader :

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.
