    Hi guys,
    I may sound funny but not to me. I am running a site using the Newsletter plugin but the PHP version used is very low (5.2.6-1+lenny16). My dashboard was not showing which is not a major problem but with last upgrade of your plugin (to v. 5.1.8) my newsletter “Edit” – Message tab screen disappeared. The other tabs (Message textual; Targeting etc.) show fine but the main version is missing.

    Same is with the last screen when you press “Proceed to Edit” button.

    I believe that if I manage to install previous version this could help me resolve the issue. I have asked server admins to upgrade but that is not very likely to happen or at least in the near future. Therefore downgrading plugin version seems to be the only way I deal with the problem.

    Please could you send me an older version so that I deal with that.


    Hi, show this page to your admin http://php.net/supported-versions.php and ask them how it’s possible to run a php version which is unsupported since years. This is why it’s so easy for hackers to comprimise servers and sites. 🙂

    Anyway, you can install a previous version of Newsletter from wordpress.org (https://wordpress.org/plugins/newsletter/advanced/ – seer the page bottom). The dashbord won’t work since it had been written for php 5.3.



    Thanks Stefano,

    That saved my arse 🙂 I temporarily resolved the problem with v. 5.1.0.
    I know it sounds tragically but the admins responded and we will migrate site to a new server with up to date software.

    Keep up your excellent job on this great plugin.

    Best regards,
