Mailster - WordPress version available - WP Mailster
We are happy to report that Mailster now has a WordPress brother: WP Mailster
After 7 years of only offering our email discussion in the Joomla universe, we are happy to provide WordPress site owners a flexible mailing list solution, too!
Development for it started already in early 2016 and we had hoped to release it much earlier. While the core of Mailster and WP Mailster (especially all things related to the email handling) are very much the same, it proved challenging to replace the code base relying on Joomla since WordPress follows different development principles.
Beta testing was finally started in November 2016 with the help of a group of long time users of Mailster.
The first offical release happened right around Christmas 2016, the WP Mailster listing in the WordPress plugin repository went live on January 1st, 2017. A great way to start into the new year :-)
WP Mailster has its own version numbering (and Pro-product names) and will be released indepedently from Mailster. The feature set of WP Mailster is currently a bit smaller than of its older Joomla brother, but we will add those features in subsequent releases.
Needless to say we have no plans on stopping Mailster's development in the future!
We are dedicated to continuously improving both the Joomla and the WordPress product range in the coming years.
Mailster v1.3 - Moderation Mode & DMARC & More
Today we have released Mailster 1.3 which we consider a major version considering all the goodies that we introduced.
This post will take you through some of the highlights.
As always you find the full list of features, improvements and fixes in the changelog.
Moderation Mode (Business & Ultimate editions)
One of the features we were asked to implement again and again is a moderation mode.
This is especially useful for large discussion lists where the mailing list admin wants to ensure that the messages sent to the list are up to a certain standard.
Mailster Business and Mailster Ultimate feature the new moderation mode that allows moderating
- all messages or
- only messages from a certain group of users
- and/or auto-approving (white listing) the messages of other users.
The mailing list admin can easily accept/reject the messages by clicking the respective links in the notification emails sent to him or by doing this in the Mailster backend email archive.
