404 error while saving options of Unique Article Wizard WordPress Plugin

I would try to save UAW options at and it would end up in a “404 Not Found error”. I tried different things in order to fix it..  debugged through the action of the options form, changed form action, urlencoded the url and so one but it would not fix.

Newsletter not saving on edit in “WP Autoresponder And Newsletter Plugin” of WordPress

wordpress logo

I had been using WP Autoresponder And Newsletter Plugin ( when this issue occurred. I tried to edit and save a newsletter which i had created but the values didn’t save.<!–more–> On debugging i found that the Newsletter Edit form’s hidden input element named “wpr_form” (before the hidden input element that contained newsletter id) missed the closing bracket. To fix this possible issue you need to open views/newsletter_form.php and edit the following code near line 71

<input type="hidden" name="wpr_form" value="<?php echo $wpr_form ?>"

to make it complete, i.e.

<input type="hidden" name="wpr_form" value="<?php echo $wpr_form ?>" />

Saving the newsletter should work now. In the meantime i am also writing to the author of this plugin so i hope when you read this post the issue is already fixed.
