    I am trying to set up automatic emails containing my latest posts to subscribers. I want the full post sent in the email, not just an excerpt. I simply cannot figure out how to do it. An excerpt is being sent now. How can I change this?

      Hey Robin,

      Thanks for reaching out. If you go into your WordPress Dashboard, then select Wysija/Mail Poet from the menu on the left hand side. From here you need to edit the automatic newsletter that you created, there will be a notice about it being deactivated, which is fine for now, so click on and move forward.

      From here you need to click next step down the bottom, which will bring you to the WYSIWYG email editor. Hover your mouse over it until you find the Automatic Content area – when you are hovering here, you will see “Edit Automatic latest content” appear, click on this and it will give you a range of options, the important change here is switching to full post from excerpt.

      Hopefully that helps, I’ll make a video of how to do this as well.
