Yoast SEO AddOn

Yoast SEO is a great WordPress plugin for managing your SEO. This addon provides shortcodes for setting SEO parameters via email.

This AddOn also give you the ability to:

  • Set the key phrases
  • Set the meta description

Are there other settings you’d like to see supported? Let us know by emailing


Set Focus Keyphrase/Keywords

This shortcode will set the Focus keyphrase. You can set the keyphrase via the keyword attribute or between the open and close tags.

[pseo_focuskw keywords="my keywords"]
[pseo_focuskw]my keywords[/pseo_focuskw]

Set Meta Description

This shortcode will set the Meta description. You can set the meta description via the description attribute or between the open and close tags.

[pseo_metadesc description="my description"]
[pseo_metadesc]my description[/pseo_metadesc] 

Remote Featured Image

This addon will look through your email and find all the images that were not included in the email (e.g. <img> tags). It will examine the images and select the largest one as the featured image.

There are no settings, just install and activate.

Fix Video/oEmbed Links

The Fix Video/oEmbed Links AddOn will “undo” the formatting that many email clients add to links which will enable videos or any embeddable content supported by WordPress to be displayed inline rather than as a link. This will only work for services supported by WordPress or added by another plugin. See for a list.

For example, you paste into your email. By the time Postie sees the email it looks like <a href=””></a> which WordPress doesn’t know is a link to a video so it is just displayed as a link.

With the addon enabled Postie will recognize the content as a YouTube video and alter the markup so WordPress knows how to display it correctly.

Text Extractor

The Text Extractor AddOn will look for any attached PDF, DOC, DOCX or RTF file and extract the text and use that text for the post content.

Note that this addon only extracts text, not formatting and not images.

There is one option that if checked will add a link to the original document at the end of the post (disabled by default).

PDF Embedder AddOn

The PDF Embedder AddOn integrates with the PDF Embedder plugin allowing you to email PDFs and have them display inline rather than requiring the user to click on the PDF icon and download it and have it launch in Acrobat Reader.

The AddOn is compatible with the Free, Premium and Secure editions of PDF Embedder.

You can control whether the PDF is at the top or bottom of the post by using the Image/Attachment Location setting on the Image tab.

Category for Media AddOn

The Category for Media AddOn will assign all the categories you assigned to the post to all media items included in the email.

For example if you assign the category “horse” to the post, it will also get assigned to any images in the email. This can be used to set up galleries where you show images for a specific category.

This addon is compatible with the Category Per User AddOn

Note that this AddOn will not apply media categories created by Enhanced Media Library.

PublishPress Future/Post Expirator AddOn

PublishPress Future (formerly known as Post Expirator) is a great plugin that lets you set a date for a post to be removed. See for more information.

This AddOn allows you to specify the PublishPress Future options in your email. For example:

[postexpire when="2021-08-09 17:00" how="delete"]

This will set the post to expire on Aug 8, 2019 at 5:00pm by deleting the post.


This will set the post to expire on default date by setting the post status to “Draft”.


when should be some date and time in the future. If not supplied it will used the configured default.

how should be any of the options that PublishPress Future provides except for the category choices. If not provided the post will be changed to “draft” status.

There is a single option for this AddOn

If selected then the default expiration will be applied even if the shortcode is not present. This is useful if you don’t control the email content but still want to expire the content.

Code Word AddOn

This AddOn lets you add some extra control around what gets published by looking at the content for either a required word/phrase or forbidden words/phrases. This provides an additional layer of protection from undesired emails getting published even if they are from an authorized user.

You can specify a required word/phrase that must be present in the email otherwise it won’t be published. You can leave this option blank if you don’t want to require a word/phrase.

You can provide a list of words/phrases of “forbidden” words. If any of these are found then the email isn’t published. This can also be left blank.

The action options let you control what happens if the email isn’t going to be published. If you choose “ignore” and you have the “Return rejected mail to sender” set to Yes then the sender will receive an email letting them know it wasn’t published and why. If you select “draft” the email will be turned into a post, but published in draft status so it won’t show up until you go in and manually publish it.

You can also specify if you want to look in the subject, body or both.
