Have found that it only happens when a person looks at our main front page without being logged in.
... and when either no items are enabled in the newsletter OR guests are not allowed to subscribe....  Fixed now.

Anyone still interested in a subscription list for this?

I made one for myself and happy to share if anyone is interested and it is okay by HC. Simple php script not part of the admin panel (yet ;) ) but does the job I want it for.

Found the mod very useful to rebuild our old users.

As said, though webmaster we need to wait for 1st 7 days to receive the newsletter in our email to see a preview of it.

Email looks perfect. But on the forum admin page, when i click newsletter preview. Still am getting error message and no preview now.

I would be happy if we could add our users list like everyone here requested. So that we could add the entire memberlist and they could opt out if needed.

This is the script I am using for the subscription list.

Still need to add a link to it from the admin page, but at the moment it does the job I am after.

Code: [Select]
<?php
$con 
mysql_connect("db server name","db username","db password");

mysql_select_db("db name"$con);

$result mysql_query("SELECT * FROM smf_hcb_newsletter");

echo 
"<table border='1'>
<tr>
<th>Email</th>
</tr>"
;

while(
$row mysql_fetch_array($result))
  {
  echo 
"<tr>";
  echo 
"<td>" $row['email'] . "</td>";
  echo
"</tr>";
  }
echo 
"</table>";

mysql_close($con);

?>


Just save it and add it to your forum root directory and away you go!


Could extend it to add in the members name also by adding in the extra field if you wanted to. Simply add in the extra table data lines. If you want a hand with that too, let me know.

Cheers

Chris

Now the forum is showing the next newsletter due on 29 july 2012

Preview newsletter button had not showed the preview even once from the day of install.

Kindly assist admin.

Preview just dumps html to the browser so it has to work?  What do you see?

Have you checked the SMF mail queue?

Do you have new posts (if none and no other options included then no newsletter will get sent as there is no news!)

What was the "next" date after 15/22 July?

THank you for your work on this mod, I would find this very useful for my forum, however it doesn't load properly (issue with the boarindextemplate. Did manual override but still couldn't get it to work properly. Am guessing it's a conflict with another mod so will have deleted it.

Thankyou for your efforts however. This mod has alot of potential.  8)

Did you manually edit the board index template?  It shouldn't conflict with any other mod.  In what way does it not work?

Repeating "it doesn't work" isn't very helpful I'm afraid  ::).  I've asked several questions (see below) but not got any answers that might help find the problem.  Without answers (or access to a forum where the problem occurs) I can't really do much about it.

Not by me I'm afraid - I have never use SMF1 and have no reason to do so.  Why not upgrade - or get someone to port it for you?

When you find someone to build a scheduled tasks system for 1.1 first... ;)
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
