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.
