How to use the plugin?

  1. 1. Install and activate the plugin.
  2. 2. Go to the plugin settings page ( on dashboard “BWS Plugins” -> “Sender” ) and edit the necessary options.
  3. 3. Go to the edit mail page ( on Dashboard “Sender” -> “Sender” ) and then:
  4. – select the users ( by roles ) you want to send a mail to
  5. – enter the subject and text of the mail
  6. – click the “Send” button
  7. 4. You can view a report about mailout on “Sender” -> “Reports” page

How can i make sure that the subscriber has read my letter?

The Sender Pro functionality supports the notification that the subscriber has read the letter. For this purpose, an option to add a specific 1×1 pixel image to the text of the letter is included. This function is available when sending a message in the HTML format.
In order to enable the option to send letters with notification you have to follow these steps:

  1. 1. Go to Plugin Settings ( “Admin Panel”->”BWS Plugins”->”Sender Pro” ).
  2. 2. Make sure that the options “Email in HTML format sending” and “Send email with confirmation” are enabled.
  3. 3. Save the settings of the plugin in case necessary.

Warning! Due to security policy peculiarities, receiving a notification that the subscriber has read your letter may be impossible with some mail services.

Why does it take so long to send my letters?

For sending letters in plugin used wp_cron – WordPress function for periodic execution of any planned actions. This function depends on the traffic of your site: the more visitors, the faster the letters will be sent.

Why am I unable to send letters to all users at the same time?

  1. 1. Simultaneous sending of a large number of messages can slow down your site.
  2. 2. Your site can be identified as a source of spamming, which can lead to blocking of your website or hosting-account.

Why are the fonts in a letter not displayed?

To include additional fonts in Sender Pro, the plugin uses the links to the fonts located at https://www.google.com/fonts. Unfortunately, some mail services remove the links to external sources from the letters for security purposes, so displaying the elements with additional fonts is impossible with these mail services.

What type of layout should be used to edit the letters in HTML format in Sender Pro?

For the letter content to be processed and displayed correctly with every mail service, we recommend you to use the table-type layout.

How can I change the background color of a letter in Sender Pro?

To do this, you need to enter the text mode by pressing the “Text” tab in the letter editor, choose the element that serves as a cover to all elements, and give it a necessary property background or background-color.
Example:
<br /> <table style="background: red;">...</table> <p>

There is something wrong with the date and status of my mails in the Sender Reports table while switching between free & PRO versions. Is there any way to fix that?

Try to deactivate and activate the version you want to use (either free or PRO).
