Plaintext for the Newsletter plugin
The Newsletter Plugin is great for generating HTML newsletters. Its sophisticated Drag & Drop Composer makes it very easy to create a newsletter that looks good and renders well in a variety of email readers.
But it is generally considered good practice to include “plain text” version of the newsletter as well.
Plaintext for the Newsletter plugin adds an “Auto-generate from HTML” command above the plain text box. When you click this command, it reads the HTML version of your newsletter and transforms it into plain text. Images are replaced by their “alt” tag and links are shown in brackets.
For an example, see my blog.
NOTE: This is the initial beta version. Please provide feedback on the Support forum. Thanks!
This add-on will only work if you have The Newsletter Plugin installed.
To use the Plaintext add-on, just install it like any other plugin. There are no settings required; the “Auto-generate from HTML” command is added automatically to the Newsletter’s Advanced tab.
