It's one of the lesser known improvements in 2.0 was the addition of it. There were a couple of mods that added a sort of scheduling system however those have a tendency to overlap and not be as reliable as SMF 2.0's.

Not currently, but the next release will allow the CSS style block to be edited in the SMF language editor.

Looks like you've installed the mod twice (or over an old version installation)?  If you can't access the forum then you should edit the /home/content/c/r/u/crustya/html/theforum/Sources/ScheduledTasks.php and remove the duplicate function scheduled_newsltr()

OR

... using an FTP client or your web host control panel's file manager) :

1. make a duplicate of file /home/content/c/r/u/crustya/html/theforum/Sources/ScheduledTasks.php (call it whatever you like)

2. delete the file: /home/content/c/r/u/crustya/html/theforum/Sources/ScheduledTasks.php

3. rename the file /home/content/c/r/u/crustya/html/theforum/Sources/ScheduledTasks.php~ (NOTE the tilde char at the end!)
as
ScheduledTasks.php (NO tilde)

4. then remove the newsltr mod manually by editing the files (see mod download page).

See the mod page and clicke the parse button (manual install instructions) and remove all the stuff listed that was added by the mod in the various files.

AS I said, it looks like it's installing over a previous unsuccessful install which has left various parts of the mod.  If you remove the bits above then it will work OK

You already have the forum logo at the top (the newsletter will include the current them logo if one is specified - otherwise it uses the forum name)?

 Your screen dump shows a logo top left?  Check Current Theme->Theme Options and Settings->Logo image URL

Sorry - not a lot I can do about it I'm afraid - your site hasn't got a standard SMF forum display.

Double compression probably.
Admin->Configuration->Server Settings->General and clear enable compressed output option should do the trick.

This continue being that way? we have to put the global forum compression off, to have the newsletter one working?
I mean, there is no workaround? it is nice to have compression on the forum and not just on newsletters, lol

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).
