Support » Plugin: Postie » Signature Stripping Entire Message – Fix

  • Resolved wellesleyps

    I just wanted to mention that since we updated to 1.9.43 over the weekend, for all the emails posted to our site, practically the entire message was being identified as the signature and blank messages were being posted. I fiddled with the Postie Settings > Message > Signature Patterns I had been using. A long time ago I had added a pattern of
    [category urgent]
    Because we used to put that at the bottom of any urgent weather related posts on our website and I wanted it stripped out. Jetpack used to use this to identify the correct post categories. We no longer user Jetpack, but it was still in some of our email footers.

    Solution: Removing the Signature Pattern [category urgent] worked just fine.

    I am wondering if this will affect all shortcodes that could be in use as Signature Patterns, so just wanted other to know to remove shortcodes from Signature Patterns.

    Thanks for posting about this issue.

    The recent update was made to better find signatures in html/rich text.

    The characters “[” and “]” are special for regular expressions which is what Postie uses for finding signatures as described on the settings page.

    I highly recommend that you either test any lines you add with https://regex101.com/ or ask here in the support forum.

    FYI the correct way to detect [category urgent] is to add the line
    \[category urgent\]
