Hi,

I installed this mod and also enabled "mailing" with php as default.

I tried to run the newsletter from maintainance>scheduletasks and ask that the news letter is not being sent to the users.

Am I missing out something??? should I enable "Cron" or anything else to make sure that the newsletter is delivered to the users.

Please help me.....

Thanking you for your kind help

Regards,
Suresh

Also, I am unable to find the link to subscribe for newsletter in the forum/profile of users, it is only showing during registration

Please help me.....

How many people do you have registered to receive the newsletter (shows at bottom of mod admin page).  The scheduled task only checks the list of users who have subscribed to the newsletter and ONLY sends when it's time to do so - i.e. 7 days, 2 weeks, etc. after each person subscribed.

The subscribe links will show on registration (if set) and on the forum board list page (top or bottom as set in the mod settings).

Check that the normal forum email system is working by subscribing to a topic and making new posts (and set your profile to allow email notifications of new posts).  If the SMF email system isn't working then this mod won't work.

Hi,

I have around 500 users who have agreed to receive the latest news of my website through one of the social networking website. All users have shared their email ids.

Please let me know how to manually enter the email ids so that they will receive the newsletters.

If I have to enter the email id's into database, please let me know the same provided that registration of the users should not be required.

Enter their email address into the newsletter subscription box on your website - you can manually register anyone if you aren't logged in.

Hi

Thanks for the mod.. :D

I have an issue with the unsubscribe link in the email that is sent, in that it doesn't work and appears incomplete?

The link in the email is as follows-> ?action=NewsSubscribe;unsubscribe;email=email@address.com

It seems to be missing the url to my forum?

Any ideas?

Thanks
M

Looks like the $boardurl  (forum URL in "Database and Paths" settings page isn't setup correctly OR there is a server configuration issue somewhere (server URL doesn't match the latter).  I'm surprised anything works properly as the email uses $scripturl which is used by almost every link in every page!

I do not know why,,,,, but I am selecting a few forums in "Don't include videos from these boards:" and changes are not saved at all...
Any idea?

You can emulate 2.0.5 and install it
No me agradan los foros que no te dejan borrar TU PROPIO usuario, como por ejemplo smfsimple.com.
E incluso te mandan emails no solicitados, de los cuales, quizá, no puedas escapar porque NO te dejan posibilidad a deshabilitarlos (a menos que NO te tengan en su lista negra).

It's caused by a bug in the 2.0.8->2.0.9 patch - see HERE for description and fix.

Oh, Thanks!
I have erased that 1st line in the ManageServer file, then upload it... but I do not know if it is working properly... the select boards (to be ignored) should remain selected after saving it?

Oooops, my bad... erased "$context['config_vars'][$config_var[1]]['name'] .= '[]';" too by mistake :)

It is alive! thanks a lot HoverClub


Ohhhh, BTW... I am using simplesef, and the "[Delete a recipient from the mailing list.]" do not work properly... it is redirecting to main admin page...
Should I add some action to the advanced simplesef section?

BTW2, the mod queries the DB for each news sent? can this cause a possible server hammering?

SOLVED BTW3, in our forum it shows the monthly option as default... can be this changed to weekly for example? I am not so sure where to change here (btw, we added a daily option):

Code: [Select]
<input type="submit" class="button_submit" name="subscribe" value="' . $txt['newsubscribe_mod_subscribe'] .'"/>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_daily'] . '<Input type="radio" name ="period" value="1"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 1) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_week'] . '<Input type="radio" name ="period" value="7"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 7) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_fort'] . '<input type="radio" name ="period" value="14"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 14) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_month'] . '<input type="radio" name ="period" value="30"' . ((empty($context['user']['newsltr']['period']) OR $context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 30) ? ' checked="checked"' : '')  . '>';
It is made by the "something OR anotherthing" of the last line?
YES :)

Here we changed it to daily as default
Code: [Select]
<input type="submit" class="button_submit" name="subscribe" value="' . $txt['newsubscribe_mod_subscribe'] .'"/>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_daily'] . '<Input type="radio" name ="period" value="1"' . ((empty($context['user']['newsltr']['period']) OR $context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 1) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_week'] . '<Input type="radio" name ="period" value="7"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 7) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_fort'] . '<input type="radio" name ="period" value="14"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 14) ? ' checked="checked"' :'')  . '>' .
$txt['newsubscribe_mod_month'] . '<input type="radio" name ="period" value="30"' . (($context['user']['newsltr']['period'] == 30) ? ' checked="checked"' : '')  . '>';

They are sent from a scheduled task running in the middle of the night - each day only sends out to around 15% of ALL subscribers - which is why there isn't a daily subscription option!

But it does 1 query/proccess to send them all? or 1 query/proccess for each subscriber?
It uses the smf queue?
