Automatic Newsletter for SMF2

<< < (6/38) > >>

Rafferty:
Great mod, well done. I just got my first auto newsletter through my email with a couple of problems:

1. The Title is blank

2. As per the attachment, left hand icons are not displaying.

Hope these can be fixed.

As a final suggestion, Id like to see an admin function to add subscribers.

I'm not a fan of unsolicited email (i.e. spam!) and doing this would risk the forum server being branded as a spam source.


--- Quote ---Instead of a list of Latest Posts it would be better to have Recently Updated Topics.

The list actually shows the newest post in the most recent topics.  Not sure if a recipient would be much interested in a board title - it's the subject that's the key thing I would reckon.


--- Quote ---Can the subscribe/unsubscribe line be moved off the homepage as it just adds unnecessary clutter in quite a prominent position.

I'll put this on the list - maybe a selection of places could be added.


--- Quote ---Have a section in the newletter for a customised message to tell the recipients whats new since the last newslettter etc.

You can use the news fader to do this - just add your what's new as the latest news fader item and it will appear in the newsletter (you don't need to have the news fader enabled on the forum for the last itme to be included in the newsletter).

1. Do you mean the title in the email body?  If so it uses the current theme Logo image URL - if there isn't one then nothing will show.
2. Check the settings on your email client - it's probably blocking inline images.

The Email Subject is blank

I use Mozilla Thunderbird, cant find any inline settings. Other similar emails seem to display properly however, just not this one.

Also didnt mention before, see attached shot. the forum stats not appearing fully

HoverClub:
There is something wrong with the text strings or theme on your forum - try removing and re-installing the mod.  Several text strings seem to be missing (some of them are installed with the mod so shouldn't be missing unless deleted after the mod was installed).

Thunderbird also has problems showing HTML emails from other sources in my experience.  The newsletter displays fine in Outlook, etc.

It would be no more spam that the existing SMF newsletter facility which allows you to send newsletters to all existing members. As there, if members have chosen not to receive announcements then they shouldn't get newsletters. On top of that they can also unsubscribe after receiving the first newsletter.
