This plugin allows you as a publisher or blog owner to accept unsolicited submissions from writers without having to create an account for them.
You can no longer 'accept for publication' more than one submission at a time.
When accepting a submission for publication, if the author record does not exist in your WP database you are now prompted to input the desired 'username' for the newly created author record. If the author record already exists, then this step is skipped.
Fixed improperly closed DIV tag on the submission summary that was causing the WordPress footer to appear mid-list.
Completely rewrote the HTML cleanup code. All fonts and embedded styles are now removed from submitted works. If you find that you're having problems with multibyte characters, turn off HTML cleanup in the Plugin Options -> Miscellaneous screen.
Completely rewrote configuration screen to be tabbed and to better group/organize the configurations.
Changed contact email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Added support for sub-categories.
Cleaned up the plugin submission pages to better handle extra long titles and to indicate when writers do not provide a return email address.
Added Twitter as a social media login type we support. We've removed support for Windows Live ID
Introduced the ability for editors to turn off the email notifications sent to writers when a submission changes state.
Added 'Year Established', 'Monthly Circulation', 'Facebook' and 'Twitter' configuration options. When populated, these values will be displayed with your publication listing at HeyPublisher.com
Fixed an edge-case where publishers could continue to see withdrawn submissions.
Better layout of the Publication Information configuration section, to separate contact info from publication info.
Fixed issue where previously accepted submissions that were moved to the trash were not marked as 'rejected'.
Fixed issue where accepted submissions that were scheduled for publication at a future date were not transitioning to 'published' on that date.
Added Custom Response Templates; the ability to customize the emails that are sent to your writers during each stage of the submission review process.
Added summary submission statistics to the plugin 'home' page
Added detailed statistics on the submission preview page, informing publisher if work is outstanding with another publisher (or has been previously published).
Fixed code related to UserPost mapping so that the plugin uses the new functions introduced in WordPress 3.0
Removed the inclusion of the custom stylesheet on the Submission Form page, as it was conflicting with some themes. Now, the width/height of the IFRAME in which the submission form displays is styled inline. If you want to override the size or style of this IFRAME reset the attributes for
#heypub_submission_iframe in your stylesheet.
