Support » Plugin: MailPoet Newsletters (Previous) » Feature request: allow to choose what posts NOT TO send

  • Resolved Marcelo Pedra


    Hello guys. I’m enjoying using this plugin, really.
    But today I want to suggest one feature that would improve the plugin, even more (and I really cant believe you didnt include this already!).

    As an editor, I love the feature allowing to send a daily newsletter with the last articles. That is really cool. It’s my own, hosted, feedburner. It’s also cool the possibility of setting what categories I will include in the newsletter. I’m one of those control freaks you mention in the docs. BUT, there is one situation uncovered, one situation that you can easily patch. It turns out that sometimes you may need to publish something in the website that shouldnt be included in the newsletter, even if it belongs to the defined categories to be sent. So, an extra section in the post.php UI should be added in order to allow the editors to tick an option that “Don’t include this post in newsletters” or “Exclude this post from newsletters”, whatever sounds better to you.

    I didnt see this as an option, in the newsletter editor nor in the documentation. So, please take this into consideration. Will help the plugin to rock a lot more.

    Thank you for reading.

    Hi Marcelo, our simple suggestion is to not include that post on that category.

    I know that this sounds obvious, but when you add a new functionality for a specific case, a lot of issues could happen. That’s why we are very cautious to not add new features that could be easily bypassed with a simple rule on our current plugin. Hope you understand!
