Genesis eNews Extended with MailPoet Support

While Genesis eNews Extended has worked great with a many different mailing list services out of the box, I have heard from a number of y’all that you’d like to use it with MailPoet (formerly WYSIJA).

MailPoet is a plugin for WordPress that allows you to send newsletters from within the WordPress dashboard without needing a third-party service. Since it was internal to your site, it didn’t quite work with Genesis eNews Extended.

No more.

I’m proud to release version 1.4.0 of Genesis eNews Extended that has support for MailPoet built-in. If you don’t use MailPoet, that’s cool. Nothing is different for you (though there were minor code improvements).

If you have the MailPoet plugin activated, you’ll see an additional option in the widget settings:mailpoet-enews

If you have any issues, please open a thread on the plugin’s support page.

Major props to Maor Chasen of the MailPoet team for coding up this enhancement!

Polyglots Needed!

Multiple languages you have? I have setup a GlotPress install for eNews Extended to help ease improving the translations that come included in the plugin.

You can register for an account, then visit the GlotPress site to edit any of the current translations. If you know a different language, send me a note and I’ll add it.

Translations are now handled by WordPress.org.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sending my first person to your support forum… I thought she had a plugin conflict, but I see that it’s the built in functionality which has broken how her sidebar works. 🙁

Hi, have been trying to get mailpoet to work with Genesis eNews Extended for over a week. I keep get error 404 page when trying to do a test subscription. Have emailed mailpoet support but not making any progress. I am about to abandon Mailpoet, I don’t have any technical knowledge so its very frustrating. Please could you advise what I need to put in the form action box etc for mailpoet setup so I can check its correct. Many thanks.

I notice there does not seem to be support for MailPoet3 yet. Will this be supported. Should I stay with MailPoet2 for now?
