WPeMatico 1.8

At last! We were very excited about this release of WPeMatico. In version 1.8, we have substantially improved the core of the WPeMatico plugin.

Facing  version 2.0, we already have many improvements in the performance and we’ve tweaked all the JavaScript codes and CSS styles considerably, and obsolete classes or functions have been replaced by their successors.

Many filters and new features have been added to the core, as well as many extensions. Because of this, in updating to this version of WPeMatico, any purchased extensions will also have to be updated to the latest version.


We’ve added a new tool: the Campaign Control Panel. You’ll find it in the metabox “Publish” when you edit the campaign.

The page of Settings->System Status was updated almost from scratch. Many missing but useful details were added for when you need to debug system tests and find server failures, and also to search for incompatibilities in the modules or plugins.

We’ve corrected a lot of things in the Campaign Wizard pop-up because it was unstable and ugly.

In the professional version, a button was placed in the feed URL row that opens a pop-up for that feed’s own options. In previous versions, it was only enabled when the multi-page feed option was activated, as some users are already aware, but now we have added the option “Force feed” in the modal window, to allow it to be used when the feed checking gives an error (in addition to being able to continue adding  more individual functions for every feed in the future).

Apart from all that, when you install the Professional add-on, the exportation of campaigns is activated and you can choose which campaigns to include in the debug file when sending a support ticket.
