once again: great work you did with the newsletter plugin 3.0!
I am now successfully sending newsletters with my own themes. Everything is very easy to use and straightforward. It works great!
As I work in professional newsletter-marketing since about 10 years, I would like to suggest some features:
1.) advanced selection / filtering of the subscribers: it would be great if the plugin would offer the possibility to group filters using AND and OR for the preferences.
2.) make use of the sex field in combination with the possibility to add a separate salutation for women and men.
Principally this is possible at the moment, if I write the respective sentences into the Profile fields – but this is somehow redundant, as the gender-fields are already there, I just don’t know how to access them.
=> is it possible to use normal php script in the newsletter-templates?
3.) advanced statistics: for more professional users statistics including at least the number of clicks would be really helpful. Even better: number of clicks per link (the software already inserts a tracking code for the inks, right?), click rates, opening rates, number of mails opened in html format.
one very small issue: actually the default value for the number of emails opened seems to be 2. It should default to zero 😉
4.) upload including Profile and Gender fields:
as it is extremely time consuming to open each and every subscribers profile and manually add the respective fields it would be really helpful If it was possible to upload a comma-separated list with all the Profile and also the Gender-fields already filled in. (I tried that at first, but unfortunately it didn’t work ;))
Anyhow, the newsletter-plugin already is a wonderful tool and works very reliably! You also offer very good support!
Thank you very much and best regards,

P.S.: Where / how can I access the templates of the confirmation mails?
I would very much like to send out html-confirmation mails that are visually consistent with my site.
thanks a lot in advance and best regards,

Hi thank you very much for your suggestions I already printed them. About statistics, the pro version has a more detailed report and it will be included in six months (while the stats are collected right now by version 3.0): this is to leave the competitive advantage to actual customers.
About the emails sent during subscription process, on version 3.0.3 inside the subscription/email.php file there will be instructions on how to customize it. It is ready for that, just use the email-alternative.php file, and copy it on wp-content/extensions/newsletter/subscription/email.php and modify it as you prefer. Newsletter will find it and will use it.

thanks a lot! I’ll try that. And I am looking forward to the Pro-Version 🙂
I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!
Stay happy and healthy.
Best regards, connie
