Our WordPress Plugin gets full PHP 8 support

With our mega-exciting Spin Rewriter 13 launch happening last week, we didn't even get the time to talk about all the upgrades yet!

So today let's talk about one of the upgrades that kind off flew under the radar until now. ✈️

Now, you might already be familiar with the Spin Rewriter WordPress Plugin.

Our WordPress Plugin makes it really easy for our users to keep their WordPress websites full of unique, high-quality content — without any effort required.

It carefully tracks the age of all posts on your WordPress websites, and as soon as any post turns a certain age (e.g. a week old, or two months old, etc.), our plugin automatically spins that particular post and re-publishes it as a brand-new post.

Combining the power of Spin Rewriter and our WordPress Plugin makes it really easy to have your websites always updated with relevant, fresh content. You just set your preferences once (e.g. the age when posts should be spun and re-published) and you let the plugin do its job while you kick back and relax.

So that's pretty cool. 🤩

And our plugin just got even better!

Simultaneously with the launch of Spin Rewriter 13, we have also rolled out a brand-new version of our plugin: version 13.0.0 (of course).

This newest version of the plugin comes with full support for servers running PHP 8.0 or higher. 👍

So if you are running the latest version of PHP on your server (≥8.0) and were running into any sorts of issues with our plugin, these issues are now fully resolved — and our plugin works better, more reliably and faster than ever.

Our plugin testing environment now includes a fully up-to-date installation of WordPress on a server running PHP 8.1, another fully updated installation of WordPress on a different server running PHP 7.4 and a third one-version-behind somewhat-out-of-date installation of WordPress on a PHP 7.3 server.

This testing setup lets us test our plugin's functionality in a multitude of real-world environments and allows us to be confident that the plugin truly works for our awesome users — which is why we're doing all of this in the first place. 😃

If you already have our WordPress plugin installed, you should be prompted to upgrade to this latest version 13.0.0 automatically.

Otherwise, you can always update your plugin manually from your WordPress admin panel by going to Dashboard > Plugins > Spin Rewriter and clicking the "Check for updates" button. The plugin will update automatically from there.

Hope you like this update — and happy spinning! 😃

Spin Rewriter 13 is LIVE!

Today is a HUGE DAY at the Spin Rewriter office! 🎉

We just launched the latest-and-greatest Spin Rewriter version 13!

Spin Rewriter 13 brings a number of new features and upgrades

...and honestly — we couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

🤩 First off, how about that design facelift?!

After almost 12 years of using a red-and-gray color scheme, our world-class designers took on the gargantuan task of making Spin Rewriter version 13 feel even friendlier... Suffice it to say, we are all beyond ecstatic about how the final result turned out! Hopefully you are, too. 👌

But of course we didn't quite stop there...

Here's what our wonderful team has packed into Spin Rewriter 13:

🍪 Goodie #1: With the recent boom in A.I. space, it's only fitting that Spin Rewriter also benefits from its own big ENL Semantic Spinning technology breakthrough.

Spin Rewriter 13 is ready to take semantic spinning yet another step further. We have updated its core algorithm with a revolutionary approach to phrase detection based on deep-learning technology. 100% uniqueness and readability are now guaranteed!

🍪 Goodie #2: Our team has also invested 440 hours of effort into a thorough manual review of our synonym database. This further refines the suggestions our algorithm is making, resulting in better articles for our users.

🍪 Goodie #3: We were able to improve not just the UI (with the new design facelift) but also the UX (user experience) of Spin Rewriter. The improvement is a direct result of our extensive in-person user testing — which is something we've become quite passionate about.

The improved UI in version 13 will make our users' lives much easier when it comes to generating virtually unlimited unique content.

🍪 Goodie #4: Our improved on-boarding process guides our newest users by hand all the way to their first finished top-quality spun article. This way everyone can succeed with Spin Rewriter.

🍪 Goodie #5: We've refreshed our detailed tutorial videos that explain every feature and turn our users into fearless content-generating ninjas.

🍪 Goodie #6: Our team has made the Archive of spun articles much more powerful. Our users are now able to categorize their articles more easily, rename them (in bulk), delete them (in bulk), set custom names... They can also sort their articles in new and powerful ways through an extremely intuitive new interface.

🍪 Goodie #7: We've made it super easy to import any existing articles that our users might already have in spintax format right into Spin Rewriter 13. This gives our users control over ALL of their spun articles inside one big, unified Spin Rewriter Archive of articles.

🍪 Goodie #8: With Spin Rewriter 13, it's now easier than ever for our users to enrich their spun articles with royalty-free media, i.e. videos and images. The whole process takes just a few clicks, and Spin Rewriter can now even recognize the primary theme of each generated article so it's able to fetch relevant videos and images for our users automatically.

🍪 Goodie #9: We have improved auto-capitalization of synonyms. Now the capitalization that we suggest is always correct — even when suggesting synonyms for acronyms, abbreviations, initials, etc.

🍪 Goodie #10: The official Spin Rewriter WordPress Plugin now comes with full compatibility with servers running PHP 8.0 or higher, as well as improved internal caching for faster performance.

And much, much more...

Bottom line: Spin Rewriter version 13 is an absolute article rewriting beast.

Easily enrich your spun articles

It's now October — which means we are only two weeks away from our big launch of Spin Rewriter 13! 🤩

So we figured we'd give you a glimpse into one of the upcoming features in the newest version that will be available on October 19th... Here it goes:

Step 3 of the rewriting process is now getting a brand-new option called "Enrich articles with headings, bullet points, etc.".

When you enable this feature, Spin Rewriter will automatically detect various headings and lists inside each of your generated unique articles.

When viewing your generated unique articles in "Visual" mode inside Step 3, you will notice that headings are now automatically displayed in a larger, bolder font — with your article's primary heading being the most prominent one. Itemized lists will also be formatted in a much more visually pleasing manner, complete with bullet points and appropriate margins in between individual list items.

This feature will bring you yet another step closer to being able to publish your generated spun articles on your websites with absolutely zero further editing required — just a simple click and you're done.

The way it should be! 👌

We hope you're as excited about the upcoming Spin Rewriter 13 as we are. We can't wait to show it to you — it will go LIVE on October 19th! 👏
