Back after an absence 😇

I'm setting up a new newsletter and see that posts by guests who have not yet registered are appearing in the newsletter (I have it set so guests can post prior to registering). I can't find the way to exclude those posts from appearing in the newsletter's recent post feed.

Help? Thanks!!

@HeadStand,

Hello! I hope you're having a great 2021 so far. 🙂

Is there a way to force a specific newsletter to rebuild the subscriber list? I have an issue with at least one member who cannot receive the newsletter they're signed up for. They toggled it on in their Settings --> Account Settings --> Newsletters, but I don't see their name in the admin interface when I ask it to show me the list of subscribers.

Since this is happening with one member, I'm concerned it might have happened to others as well, hence why I was wondering if there was a way to rebuild things.

Thanks!

That's not my block. That's an IPS block and is totally unrelated to the newsletter.

Ok

so does you app have a block then, or does it use the standard IPS?

Viewing it as someone who hasn't already opted in to the newsletter?


if( \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->allow_admin_mails )
{
	return "";
} else {
	SHOW THE STUFF!!!
}

 

Thanks @Nathan Explosion

Hi, I am using Newsletter Out-of-the-Box, and wonder about the following.

The spacing between links/items differ between blocks. For example, see the screen shot where there is no linebreak between items in the block extracting Articles from a Article page. The same goes for items from Blogs.

In all other blocks I use, there are Linebreak between items, for example in Forum topics as in the screen shot below.

If you share your email (DM) I can test-send a newsletter to you.

@HeadStand

does the below setting ultimately control all of the app newsletter sends?

if( \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->allow_admin_mails )

 

if it does then should there not be some 'warning/notice' given to a member who has signed up for a newsletter from this app but does not allow admin mails ?

If you explicitly sign up for a newsletter you should get it even if you turned off mail.

I can't find the way to translate the word "comments". 😕

 

Looks like I hard-coded it 🤦‍♀️ Why did I do that? Good question. 😬

You can edit this in the template. newsletters -> global -> content -> core.

And I found a bug (?) with calendar events.

I have recurring events since eons until the end of the world 😉 and thought I have to choose "Upcoming content" as type. But then in html-preview I only have the variable with the key of content.

It works only if I choose "popular content" as type (and then only the recurring event with a comment appear in preview and not the other recurring event without a comment although the minimum number of comments is set to 0).

Hello!

I hope you're doing well. I've noticed an issue with the above, as well. I've had at least two members not receive their Newsletters until they toggle on the in-System admin mail.

I know this app is not officially 4.6 compatible yet, but has anyone tested to see if it still works?

A new version has been uploaded to the marketplace but is pending approval. Changes include:

  • Tested for 4.6 compatibility
  • Open Rate is now included when viewing newsletter back issues
  • Option to include guest content (disabled by default)
  • Fixed an issue where users who manually subscribed but opted out of emails did not receive the newsletter
  • Removed extra line break from some templates

I'm not exactly sure what the issue is. Can you please clarify what you're trying to do and what the problem is?

I guess it takes a some time for IPS to approve?

Looks like I didn't renew my IPS license, so all my files are hidden from the Marketplace. Give it a day or so to resolve, I've paid it.

I can see the file fine, just the update hasn't hit yet. IPS must have some "vetting" process.

Is it IPS that takes a while to approve your updated files? I'm still getting:

How does it work after you submit an update? 

IPS has to approve the file, and I think wait time is like 2 weeks....

that’s crazy because IPS is already on 4.6.4. By the time they approve it we’ll be halfway through the lifecycle of 4.6…lol.
