Newsletters

Hi @HeadStand. Having difficulty including a manual message in the newsletter. I created a manual entry into the the newsletter (along with recent posts, advertisement, and other content). I then went to Manage Issues and created a new issue with today's date. If I click the preview button on the issue, I see the issue text nicely inserted into the newsletter. However, when I sent out the newsletter today, I received all the content except the manual entry. What am I doing wrong? 😫

Thanks!!

*edit**

I've really really tried and have not really succeeded in including manual content using manage issues. It works fine when I enter content as default content within the newsletter itself, but when I enter content in the issues section, I fail. I've read through your manual but still am unsuccessful. I'm sure it's me, but I can't find what I'm doing wrong.

Please don't all light me up at once 😰

I've tried to read through the thread to figure out how to insert images into the template. Sorry, it's above my paygrade. In short, does anyone have templates with both code and screenshots to show what those templates look like with images inserted? Happy to buy a couple of nice looking templates. Currently my newsletter comes out standard with the items line by line. I just want to dress them up slightly.

Again, don't shoot!

Thanks!!

PS. And I'm still having trouble figuring out manual content. Working on it...

Hi @HeadStand I'm close to having my newsletters ready for the public which is exciting but I had some q's for you.

  1. Is there a way to have a dynamic title? Maybe the first few content items combined or something?
  2. My unsubscribe links are broken and link to "/forums/newsletters/unsubscribe/&key=*%7Cunsubscribe_key%7C*" which gives a page not found error.

Thanks!

Do you mean images from inside a post? This is pretty tricky. I fell back to having the users' avatar image as that is much easier.

Hi @Prank, yes, that's it. Or at least the option to insert the first image of the post. But that's okay, as we've been using it, it's become evident that it's less mission critical than I thought. The manual content, however, I'm still having difficulty with 😓

I'm afraid a custom SMTP server is not currently supported.

That should be in the "Back Issues" screen of the newsletter. It would tell you how many were sent, and you can view the subscribers.

Hello, any chance for even some basic stats from newsletters? Our clients wants it, and have nothing for them 😞 It can be really basic, but some stats is standard in these days. Day have perfect stats on facebook etc. and we must to keep them somehow.

You are not the only one! We have 70 000+ users, and feels like our e-mails goes... nowhere. In such big base basic stats like open rate, clicks etc. are necessary. Please, please add it. 

Im not even asking about some charts, historical graphs from every newsletters (it would be great), but only for same basics.

It is, but there is only number. We don't have nothing more like open rate, clicks or nothing.

A new version has been uploaded to the marketplace. This version includes tracking opens and clicks for each issue.

At the moment, it only displays the total opens and clicks on the "Back Issues" screen. I do intend to add full charts so that you can see when things were opened, which newsletters have the best rate, etc.

Thank you. We will test it. Basic statistics are cool for right now. But as you said - it will be even cooler, if you ad some statystics (by %), some charts to see the progress (or regress) etc.

@HeadStand, My unsubscribe links do not work as well for some reason. I'm using *|unsubscribe|* but the link it generates goes to page not found. Any ideas what could cause this? The link that it generates is like

https://www.mysite.com/index.php?app=core&module=system&controller=redirect&url=https://www.mysite.com/index.php?app=core%26module=system%26controller=redirect%26url=https://www.mysite.com/newsletters/unsubscribe/%2526key=*%25257Cunsubscribe_key%######*%26key=ee##############################################################resource=%26email=1%26type=&key=ecdfd###########################################################resource=&email=1&type=

Any ideas?

Looks like it's picking up the redirector from inside the ACP. How are your tasks being triggered - by user activity or by cron job?

Edit: one more thing - is your newsletter scheduled (daily/weekly/etc) or manual?

I have a cron job scheduled every minute to run tasks. My newsletter goes out weekly same day.
