    I just upgraded to Newsletter 3.0.4 and things are mostly working great. I only have one issue that I’d like to take care of.

    My newsletter theme sends out a menu for a restaurant each day. Every day, this menu changes. It has 5 loops on it (each is done with a new WP_Query object) that each have a list of food items.

    When I create a new newsletter using my theme, it pulls in all the appropriate information, however, updating it seems to work differently now.

    I used to be able to press the ‘Change’ button in the theme area of the email and it would refresh the contents to reflect the current menu. Since the theme is now only set at the creation of the email, the only way that I have found to update the menu is to create a new email using my template. This works, but doesn’t seem to me like the correct method.

    Is there a way that I can refresh the theme on a saved newsletter without creating a brand new one?

    I understand that looping through content should be done differently in the new version, so please let me know if this is the issue. However, I tried following along but I am unsure how to convert my old theme because it is using custom post types, and the English on FAQ about the new loop method is not so great.

    Thanks for you time and effort.

    When you create a new email, fresh content is taken from the blog. Probably you before used the same email for all delivery?

    Correct, that is exactly the case. Is there any way to have it refresh the content of the existing email, or am I approaching this is the best way by creating a new email each time?

    Thanks.

    The correct way is to create a new email every time, so it can be statistically tracked.
