My website automatically generates a weekly newsletter (Newsletter plugin) of the most recent posts on the website (regular wordpress posts, as well as All In One Events Calendar events, and Sermon Manager ‘sermons’).
However, it does not pick up any new entries in Connections Business Directory.
Any advice on ‘unhiding’ this information?
RE: Any advice on ‘unhiding’ this information?
Well, the info is not hidden in any way… It sounds like the newsletter plugin simply pulls recents posts. Connections does not use posts, it uses custom tables for performance and scalability reasons. Many plugins use custom post types, storing data which was not really well suited to be stored as a post, now, many of the larger/popular plugins are going thru major migration efforts to port that data from custom post types to custom tables due to the negative performance impact it has caused them.
That said, if the newsletter plugin has a location which allows you to put in a message or something, you could copy/paste the info from the Connections Dashboard admin page before sending out the newsletter.
Hope this helps!
Hi Steven, thanks for the clarification.
I think what I’ll do is use the shortcode for the widget on a post instead of using the widget itself, then add a snippet to keep the publish date of the post as ‘todays’ date.
That should make sure that post is grabbed each week by the newsletter automatically.
Thanks for the quick response!
That should do it if the newsletter plugin processes shortcodes when they pull the post content. Clever solution! :)
