Hello, everyone. It’s time for a new release! Let’s dive in on what’s new in version 1.8.0!
Direct Zapier Integration Support
We released Webhooks support in 1.6.0, but integrating that with Zapier required a few steps that some would consider complex.
Now, WP Ultimo is available as a Zapier App! Integrating it with Zapier is just a matter of selecting WP Ultimo as the Trigger app, selecting an event, and connecting it with any of the other apps available on Zapier. Here’s a quick guide on how to get started with that integration.

Exporter and Importer for WP Ultimo Settings
Now you are able to export your settings, plans, coupons, and more as a backup or to import them into a different network!
This can be accessed via WP Ultimo Settings Export & Import.
Users can now use their own sites as templates
Sometimes our users want to create a bunch of different sites all based on the same concept. Now, if you as a super admin turn that feature on, your users will be able to use their own sites as templates when creating a new site.
ServerPilot.io Domain Mapping integration with support to autoSSL!
We added a new hosting/server management provider on 1.8.0: ServerPilot. Now you’ll be able to auto-sync mapped domains and subdomains and leverage ServerPilot’s autoSSL feature.
The integration requires additional setup on the wp-config.php file.
The cPanel integration now syncs subdomains as well!
Since 1.8.0, new sites will have their subdomains added to cPanel’s subdomain panel as well, allowing super admins to leverage cPanel’s features, like autoSSL on some providers. No additional setup is required if you already have the cPanel integration setup, but this does not work retroactively, only applying to new sites created on the network.
Custom CSS field for the Login and Sign-up screen on the Customizer
If you visit WP Ultimo Styling and launch the Customizer, you’ll see a new custom CSS option, allowing you to inject CSS onto the login and registration screen!
WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator 1.2.0 is out and now supports PHP in the HTML mode
To give you even more power with the WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator, the HTML content mode now supports PHP. This means you can now use php snippets inside your custom pages and they will be correctly parsed and processed.
For the security freaks out there, this does not use PHP’s eval(). The code gets dumped into a temp file before being included and then removed from the disk. This allows us to isolate the code and scope it as needed.
In any case, the PHP process is not active by default. It requires that the super admin add the
define( 'WU_APC_ALLOW_PHP_PROCESSING', true ); to his /her /wp-config.php file.
