for the Feed-by-Mail-Option there is a Custom Field called “Extra Content” –
How can I insert this into my custom-theme? The text says only:
“This text, named “extra”, can be used by feed theme to fill a specific mail area, like a sidebar. The use DEPENDS on the theme you are using.”
In addition to this:
When I managed to get the extra-content into my custom-theme – can I enter
only text into this field or also images and links

Hi, you probably are using the pro version. It’s a new installation or an old one? If it’s a new installation it would be better to use the free version with the new feed by mail module.
Anyway you should code your own theme and ignore that extra content (it has been removed on new version).
Let me know the version you’re running. If you want, using the free version with feed by mail module, a custom theme can have it’s own set of option. Of course if the extra content is one and you don’t need to change it, it would be simple to code it directly inside the theme.

Hi, thanks for the reply.
We are using the newsletter pro plugin (Version 2.6.5) and the idea would be, to insert linked images(adbanners) via the extra-content-form.
I’m not managing the content by myself, so it should be a easy way to make changes in a sort of frontend.May 17, 2013 at 8:45 am #8232
Ok, if you look at the theme “feed-2” the extra content is extracted by:
Adding this line in your theme, the extra content will be added where you need. Note that the content can be HTML code as well.

Ok, I’ll try that!
Thanks for your quick support!June 11, 2013 at 3:53 pm #8488
it took me a while to work again on that issue. Now i was trying to implement that code into the Theme but it didn’t work.
How Do I (or the plugin) know that the extra-content I am adding belongs to that special theme. Could it be that it’s not ‘extra_1’ and I need to put something different there?
<?php echo $newsletter->feed_options[‘extra_1’]; ?>June 11, 2013 at 11:17 pm #8495
Hi, with a custom theme simply use the theme options file (are you on version 3?) to add the options you need for your specific theme.

I’m still using newsletter pro plugin (Version 2.6.5) – is for the new version the same possibility to add individual content to the “Feed by Mail”?
Where Do I find the feed_options?
<?php echo $newsletter->feed_options[‘extra_1’]; ?>June 12, 2013 at 10:47 pm #8520
Hi, with the new version every theme has its own custom settings, so if a theme needs some parameters or extra texts or whatever needed, it can add them on a specific parameter set.
On the old version that extra text was managed only by a couple of themes. I sent my self a note to check the code and give you some instructions to use that extra field on your theme (sorry I was believing you where with the new version).

Hi, there is a bug on the theme, the field is “extra” not “extra_1”. The code to extract it should be:
