Hello,

Just to be sure for something before ordering. The content of the email can be free format text and not only data from forums.

Thank you

Hi Chris,

There's two main features of this mod; "Digest" and "Mailing List".

Digest is fully automated, which shows popular threads since the last digest was sent. You can turn this off easily via the Manage Digests page.

Mailing List is fully manual, and you have a choice between two modes when creating a list, "Native Template" and "Custom Template".
If you choose Native Template, your message will be wrapped in the standard XenForo email container, and you shouldn't add the <html> tag.
If you choose "Custom Template", you have to specify ALL the HTML yourself, which is good if you have a professionally designed HTML newsletter you want to use.

Hope that answers your question, let me know if you need further information :)

Hello Filip,

Thank you for your prompt attention. Really appreciated. My bad English, was not clear in my text. I've understood those cases and sorry for wasting your time to write them.

So is better to use a real example. The main scope of use is:
1.- Have a form (widget or page doesn't matters), where my users will be able to subscribe to a mailinglist. Confirmation of subscription is good but not important as they're already members.
2.- Using the normal xenforo mail wrapper I just want to send emails with some custom text. If I can attach a file should be a plus but not a must.
3.- Auto include an "Unsubscribe" link in the emails

Can I do this (I know that I can do more) with your Mail plugin? A Yes/No is more than enough

Thank you
Chris

There's no widget for subscription at this time, I'll add that to the list of things to consider for future versions as it could be a good thing :)

2.- Using the normal xenforo mail wrapper I just want to send emails with some custom text. If I can attach a file should be a plus but not a must.
There's no file attachments, but emails with custom text absolutely :)

3.- Auto include an "Unsubscribe" link in the emails
This exists, absolutely :) The link is one-click with optional unsubscribe feedback, and the member does not need to be logged in in order to unsubscribe.

Hello Filip,

If I buy this version can I also download the xF1 version? Seems that I must start with xF1 as some important to me plugins are not yet ready for xF2.

Thank you
Chris

  • Configure an automated "Reader's Digest" of your most popular forum threads
also sends out automated newsletters with powerful algorithms for determining popular content
What is criteria for "most popular" threads?
Could we manually set threads which be sent in emails?
Could we manually setup criterias for reader's digest?

I’m not at the computer right now so I can’t give you the exact formula, but I do know there’s no way to manually select threads. That would be impossible, since the time frames used for determining popularity is per-user.

By that I mean, if User A wants to receive the newsletter weekly, their list of threads will be different from User B who wishes to receive it monthly.

ok installed ok now. Few glitches so far:-
1. Clicking on Manage mailing list opens up a blank tab
2. Add new keyword also gives a blank page
3. Maintenance goes to blank page
4. In digest management -> Forum Settings -> Exclude forums only shows the last forum node created

Blank pages should not happen in XF unless there's something seriously wrong with your PHP config. Can you please try clicking Repair Cache, and if that doesn't work, check your server error log?
