Both versions saw a number of updates, and a number of improvements to the code base, as well as new hooks for integrations.
Major Improvement – Better i18n Support
We were told that certain language and database encodings weren’t saving certain characters correctly, mainly characters from the Eastern european alphabets.
New installations going forward have the correct encoding, as it happens when you install the plugin for the first time. I’m working on a guide that will fix it for previous installations.
We’ve also fixed an incorrect German translation, with props to Lars Kasper for the fix.
There are a number of new hooks in the plugin as well. These are to be used should you wish to extend WP Email Capture. If you have any ideas on how to expand WP Email Capture please contact me.
Free & Premium Hooks
- wp_email_capture_extra_checks (action) – run extra checks after the name/email check against the data.
