Send an article to subscribers
« on: January 22, 2021, 12:54:38 PM »
I would like to send one article per day to the forums member list. Is there a way of doing this? I checked out the on line manual but nothing there or I am using the wrong look up verbiage.

Thanks,
JohnyMac

There are many questions that your post does not explain...

What do you mean "article"?
Do you want to send them a link to a post?
Do you want to send them the contents of a post?
Do you want to send some text or html?
Do you want to send something AND have it available for viewing online?

I will caution you -- sending one email a day is going to upset MANY users.
If I get one email a day from a website, I unjoin that website ASAP
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

I'm sorry but yes to this ^^^^
not only unjoin that site but submit it as a spam site and report it to either their host/mail service, and to the bb if applicable. and of course it then goes into my spam filters.

In the OT defense, it did say "subscribers", though I agree with the sentiment about spam.
