WordPress Google Form v0.46 beta 10 now available

A user recently reported a very odd issue where their server would report a 505 error when visiting the WordPress Google Form Plugin Settings Page.  Having never seen this sort of behavior, I was somewhat stumped.

The user had a test server I was allowed to access and I was able to narrow the problem down to a call to preg_match_all(), a standard PHP function.

The plugin settings page scrapes some content from the WordPress plugin repository and puts it on a tab within the Plugin Settings Page.  The call to preg_match_all() involved a fairly complex regular expression to extract just the content I wanted.

It turns out there is an undocumented WordPress Plugin API which makes extracting this same date extremely simple.  This beta release incorporates the API and eliminates the call to preg_match_all().  The solution is much cleaner, wish I would have known about this sooner!

Download the beta release and please let me know if you run into any issues.

Email-Users 4.4.2 released

Yesterday I released an update to Email-Users which addressed a problem when using the Email to Groups function.  Too many users were incorrectly being selected as part of the group due to an initialization bug which has been fixed.

You can find the update in the WordPress Plugin Repository or via an update on your WordPress Dashboard.

Email-Users 4.4.1 finally released

This morning I incorporated the updated French language files and released Email-Users 4.4.1.  This release fixes a number of issues people were having and introduces new functionality (via filters) to target specific groups of users based on their User Meta Data.

Here is a list of the key changes for this release:

  • Added German translation files (thank you Tobias Bechtold).
  • Fixed bug in Send to Groups where number of users receiving email was wrong.
  • Added internationalization support to Send to Group status messages.
  • Added support for sending email to users based on a custom meta filter.
  • Added support for sending email to groups based on a custom meta filter.
  • Added suppport for providing a bounce email address.
  • Fixed bug in Options form which prevented translation of strings.
  • Added support for defining email group meta filters based on meta key.
  • Implemented solution from @maximinime to fix lost Email-Users settings.
  • Removed invalid references to Marvin Labs.
  • Fixed bug where Post Excerpt wasn’t being used in email when present.
  • Updated French and Spanish language files.

Thanks to all of the people who have tested the various beta releases and provided the language file updates.  The WordPress Plugin Repository has been updated and the update should appear on  your WordPress Dashboard soon.

Email-Users v4.4.1-beta-6 now available

This morning I updated the beta version of Email Users 4.4.1 to beta-6.  This version incorporates updated Spanish and German language files and fixes a few remaining links within the plugin which referred to the old plugin home page on <a href=”http://www.marvinlabs.com”>MarvinLabs.com</a>.

I had hoped beta-5 would be the final beta release however I am still waiting for updated French language files before 4.4.1 is released.  Updates to other languages are welcome too however I no longer have the contact information for the Russian and Persian support files.

This morning I updated the beta version of Email Users 4.4.1 to beta-5.  This version updates a number of the links within the plugin which referred to the old plugin home page on MarvinLabs.com which are no longer in existance.

I hope this is the final beta release before 4.4.1 goes out.  All I am waiting for is some updates to language translation files.
