New Strategy and SNAP for Wordpress Version 3.5
NXS
nextscripts

Today we are announcing SNAP for WordPress Version 3.5. It will be released on Friday, March 4, 2016. This version is a result of our decision to change our release strategy. We are still working on completely new and totally re-written version 4. That version will be a major release and it already took a lot of time to develop. We realized that while we are sitting on some cool features that were made for upcoming V4, version 3.4 already got 32 almost featureless releases. We are sitting on them for too long. Some of those features require brand new V4 platform and engine, but some of them can be easily ported to V3 and work along with the old code.


So we decided to make several smaller releases instead of keep people waiting for one big.


We are starting with version 3.5 that got new API connection engine. New engine comes with highly optimized, smaller and faster V4 API connector files. We created a way for new API connection engine to seamlessly work with the old one.


v35-two-engins


Version 3.5 has three networks based on this new V4 API connection engine:

Telegram [New] (Free and Pro),

Instagram [New] (active “SNAP API” subscription members only),

XING [Updated] (Free and Pro).


Eventually all networks will be ported to new V4 API connection engine. Very soon we will make couple more V3 releases with new interface, features and networks and then, once we finish new autoposting engine, we will switch it on and call that release V4. That’s the plan.


PS: We apologize to all people who are waiting for the new “existing posts re-posting” functionality. This feature actually requires new V4 posting engine and will be available only in actual V4.


Upcoming Version 4 Features: Post Filters

nextscripts

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the most important new features is a completely redone auto-reposting.


Auto-reposting in version 3 was done as on/off switch per network and separate include/exclude property per each post. It was very complicated and some reposting scenarios that were not possible or very hard to setup:


- Repeat one particular tweet each day at 9AM

– Auto-Repost only posts from specific categories or tags

– Auto-Repost only posts written by specific author.

– Auto-Repost only “Image” format posts, not “Link” or “Standard”.

– Auto-Repost some specific posts from 9AM to 11AM and some different posts from 6PM to 9PM


Version 4 will use Reposter Actions. Each Reposter Action can be configured individually and you can setup what posts should be posted to what networks and when should it happen.


V4 Reposter



Reposter Action has 4 configurable sections


1. You can Activate/Deactivate the Reposter and set ho to get your posts – One-by-one or Randomly.


V4 Reposter


2. You can choose what networks this Reposter should post to.


V4 Reposter


3. You can set how often to posts as well as what time it should start and stop.

Solution for disappearing "Pro" features and "Incorrect Activation Key" error.
NXS
nextscripts

First off all we need to apologize to all the people who lost “Pro” features or got “Incorrect Activation Key” error during the last 8 hours.


Last night our server got corrupted in a bad way. What happened is when plugin checked for a version upgrade instead of “No/Here is a New Version” response server was returning a corrupted page. Plugin assumed it’s a new version – “Pro” functionality got corrupted. The same happened to the new “Pro” activation requests. Instead of “Pro” features server returned some corrupted page causing “Incorrect Activation Key” errors.


It’s all fixed now. Please re-enter your activation key and “Pro” will be back.


More then that, we made sure that this will never happened again. Please update “NextScripts: SNAP Pro Upgrade Helper” plugin to the latest version 1.3 that we just released. It should be available in your WP Admin -> Dashboards -> Updates section or you can get it from http://www.nextscripts.com/mypage
