Also noticed a small "bug" in the translation part, Birthday block in content is not in the translation part. In the editor part it´s available but not for the sent newsletter.



I'm a little confused by this one. Can you please clarify:
- What do you mean by "Editor part"?
- What do you see in the sent newsletter?
- Are you referring to plain-text or HTML?

Is it possible to see how many of the newsletters have been sent, and how many are remaining?

I just sent one out yesterday and I have no idea if it is still sending or if it has completed or if it even crashed.

I have not received any newsletters and some of my members have. I think it may have crashed part way through.

Great idea though!

Yes. In the ACP, go to "Other Apps" -> "[HSC] Newsletters" -> "Manage Newsletters".
To the right of each newsletter, you have a dropdown menu. Choose "Back Issues".

The Back Issues screen will show you how many emails are scheduled for distribution (for both plain-text and HTML) and how many have already been sent. You also have the option to manually "close" the issue.

As far as crashing... I'm not sure that's really possible. Even if it DID somehow crash in the middle, it should just resume where it left off the next time the task is run.

By Editor Part i mean that the string "birthdays_header" can be translated which shows in the ACP in Manage Content/Add Content.
In the sent newsletter i see this header:Birthdays (This Month) which is not translated (HTML, not sure about plain-text). And i can´t find any string to translate it.

Hi,

I did a test email and sent it to just my sponsors.

Now I want to send to everyone. I have made the adjustments within the newsletter and clicked save. The newletter still only goes out to the sponsors and no other group I assigned.

When I click "Publish" to try to get the setting applied I get:

Fatal error[color=#000000]: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in [/color]/usr/www/users/emsonli/forum/ips_kernel/classDbMysqliClient.php[color=#000000] on line [/color]499



Suggestions? The settings seem to save when clicking the save button, but does not apply them.

How many members in total are you trying to send this to?

Also, when you hit Publish, there should be a log file generated in your cache directory, called "newsletter.cgi". Please send me the contents of that log (via PM) and that will give me a clue where it's getting stuck.

Hello,
Quick question - I need to know answer before buying:
1) Does this mod have additional option for user (checkbox) to unsubscribe only from newsletter(s) (but not from administrator messages - current option)?
2) If 1=Yes then: Is there a possibility to include in email direct link to one-click unsubsribe from newsletter for user?
Thank You,

There is a link to your User Control Panel, where you can unsubscribe from one or more newsletters. I could implement a one-click, but of course the user would have to be signed in in order for it to work.

A new version has been uploaded to the Marketplace. Changes include:

  • Distribution to several thousand members caused the app to run out of memory (on some environments). Fixed.
  • Language strings for range values (Birthdays, Events) were not customizable. Fixed.


Language strings for ranges can be found in the public_newsletters word pack. They are:
NEWS_RANGE_WEEK
NEWS_RANGE_MONTH
NEWS_RANGE_LAST
NEWS_RANGE_NEXT

On my newsletters the links are wrong. html mails.



I get a mydomain.se/s=0 in the URL on the end. Not the URL to the topic itself so all clicks end up on the forumindex.



How to fix this?



Can you please clarify - which links exactly are you referring to? Is this the links in the footer? In a specific content type?

Also, are you running IPB 3.2 or 3.3?

Thanks.

Running 3.3.0 and the version latest of [Newsletter].

The URLs that go wrong are the content links in the email.
I have created a newsletter with the 20 most recent topics from certain forums.

All of those links go to mysite.se/s?=0

So it is automatically created links that don´t work. The footer is fine.
Maybe because of the non-FURL link?

The same for the topics created for a newsletter.
See bottom of pic to see how the url shows when holding mouse over link.

Finally, FINALLY, getting around to testing this app on 3.3.

My URLs look fine here.

You mentioned something about a non-FURL link? Do you have FURLs disabled? What are your FURL settings?
