New Post Notifications

Noptin makes it very easy to collect emails from your website visitors.

But that is not all.

For starters, you can notify your subscribers every time you publish a new post. That way, you will always have repeat visitors to your blog.

How To Set Up New Post Notifications In WordPress

open Noptin settings

First, open the Noptin Settings page by hovering your mouse over Noptin then clicking on the settings link in the sub-menu that appears.

This will load the main settings page.

Next, check the New Post notifications checkbox to enable new post notifications. That is all, whenever you publish a post, Noptin will email your active subscribers notifying them about the post and nudge them to check it out.

Here is an example of how the email might look like:-

The section below shows you how to customize the emails and exclude some posts from sending out notifications.

Customizing The Notification Email

After you enable the new post notifications, Noptin will reveal a few more settings that you can use to modify the email.

Email Subject

Use this field to change the email subject. You can use any of the following dynamic tags:-

  1. [[title]] – This will be replaced with your blog post’s title.
  2. [[first_name]] – will be replaced by the subscriber’s first name. If the subscriber has no first name, it will be replaced by an empty string.
  3. [[last_name]] – will be replaced by the subscriber’s last name. If the subscriber has no last name, it will be replaced by an empty string.
  4. [[blog_name]] – this will be replaced by your website’s title.
  5. [[blog_name]] – will be replaced by your website’s description.
  6. [[$field_name]] – this will be replaced by the subscriber’s custom field. Make sure to replace $field_name with the actual name of the field.

If you do not set a subject, Noptin will use the blog post’s title as the email subject.

Email Preview Text

Use this field to change the email’s preview text.

Note: This is the text that appears next to your email subject in the email overview screen. Some email clients do not show preview texts. In addition, this text will not appear in the actual email.

You can use the same dynamic tags as shown in the section above.

The default preview text is shown below:-

We just published a new blog post. Hope you like it.

Email Content

This setting allows you to specify the main email content.

In addition to the dynamic tags shown above, you can use the following tags:-

  1. [[excerpt]] – Noptin will replace this tag with the blog post’s excerpt.
  2. [[post_content]] – this will be replaced with your blog post’s actual content. Most of the time, however, you should not use this tag in order to motivate your subscribers to visit the blog post.

Below is the default email content:-

Hello [[first_name]], 
I just published a new post on [[blog_name]]. 
[[excerpt]]

You can also specify a custom email for each specific post. To do so, you have to create a custom field for the post and name it noptin_post_notify_content .

Exclude Tags

This setting allows you to stop Noptin from sending notifications when some posts are published.

Simply insert a comma-separated list of post tags. When you tag a post with any of the specified tags, a notification will not be sent out after it is published.
