  1. 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.

    Please include at least the number of emails sent and recipients, its more then essentiel i think,


    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 feature to see newsletters stats pelase ?

    Our weekly newsletter is sent every week but we dont know how many people receive it, who click, who open, .. !!

    Not at this time. It's something I have wanted to add for a while, but haven't had time to do it properly yet.

    Hello, how to use specific smtp server for this app only ? we dont want to use the main smtp server.

    i tried to see for spark but its no more available on IPS

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

    Does this support new videos from 


    Have you resolved this? If not, I"ll take a look.

    I've been offline for the last few days; it's Jewish holiday season, so my schedule is completely out of whack this entire month. Haven't been neglecting things, just haven't been working. 🙂

    one file names from the gallery break out..



    I'll fix this. Let me know about the previous issue so that I can do both in one shot (if necessary).

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

    • Optimizations for sites with a lot of hidden content
    • Topics did not have reactions displayed. Fixed.
    • When installed with other 3rd party apps, a template error was thrown (in some cases). Fixed.

    so the chatbox+ message don't show

    I'm not sure what you're referring to. What chatbox?

    Users can react to status updates but not to threads or posts, for $45 i really expected this to work

    Feed is not showing embedded videos

    Reactions should be working everywhere. Are there any messages or errors in your system logs when you try to react? Is the reaction button not showing at all, or is it not working? Please confirm.

    Re embedded videos: I originally included that and was specifically asked to strip them out. Can't make everyone happy. 😞

    i have left a subpar review for this item, do not recommend 

    Your first post requesting support was at 1:25 PM EDT on Wednesday, and this post was at 8:13 PM on Wednesday. That's less than 7 hours after your first request. So I get a subpar review because I didn't DROP EVERYTHING IMMEDIATELY AND RESPOND the minute you posted? Nice! Thanks! 👏

    I have a fix for this issue locally and an update will be posted to the Marketplace today.

    updated 3 weeks ago and just found out a weekly newletter hasn't been published since the update

    when try to manually publish via the acp get the following error message

    1ANNC/4 This newsletter has a distribution in progress and cannot be published at this time.




    this means that your newsletter has some old issue that was never completed properly. Check the "Back Issues" for your newsletter and see if there is anything that is still open; if so, you can just close it from that screen.

    I will have an update released soon with a few fixes, I'm just not ready yet. One of those fixes will be to kill distribution automatically after X days, so that this issue can be avoided.

    Further testing it seems to not happen when I disable Babble Chat by @CodingJungle. Oddly enough if both newsletters and babble chat are enabled, my /register/ link does not work. disable one or the other and it works fine.

    Thanks for finding this. CodingJungle and I are looking into it together.

    Also unsubscribe link doesn't work for my site. Takes people to page doesn't exists......

    I am unable to reproduce this issue. It would be helpful if you would post the link that you are being taken to. I fixed this problem a few months ago and haven't had any complaints since. Are you sure you're running the latest version? What version of IPS do you have?

    Additionally, I can configure what nodes I would like to show on the feed stream but I cannot configure what items (nodes) should be included in the block widget. Would it not be better to consider settings for the page in the widget as well?

    Node filtering should be the same in both places. What exactly is the issue? What are you not able to configure?

    Suggestion: can we show only items that the user has a permission to write on in the widget? The reason is - we have over 200 clubs on the site. And all of them are shown in the social stream. This does not make sense for the most users as they are not members of clubs and will never be. Imagine, we have a pet site. There are cats, dogs, birds, spiders, rabbits and so on. Over 200 kinds of pets. And there are clubs for every kind of pet there. If I have rabbits and only rabbits, I am not interested in content of all other clubs. But my social stream is full of the content of other clubs.

    If only content where I am allowed to create a record or a comment is shown then I automatically see only global areas like AND my clubs where I am member of. This is what makes sense for the most users.

    Thank you!


    I'm not sure I agree with this. Most people want to see content they can view, not necessarily content they can reply to. That being said, I may be able to add some options specific to clubs, where the admin can decide if all visible club content should be shown, or if users should only see clubs to which they already belong. Will that work?

    I reread the entire section and indeed, I think I'm not the only one that would like to have some more control over style. I guess we have to dig down into the templates and css, but I think there are basic changes you could implement in the supplied CSS, down the road?

    1. If I select two items in a multiple item field, the output is a comma with no space separating the two items. There shoulda at least be a space. Thoughts?
    2. If an editor field comes after any other field, the title of the field is single spaced (stuck to the previous field) but then the first line that was typed in the editor is double spaced (that's using plain text). Thoughts?


    I will fix #1.

    #2 is not a styling issue. #2 is the actual editor content - it always inserts paragraph breaks around the text. If you don't want paragraph breaks, you'd need to use a TextArea instead of an editor (but of course then you wouldn't get any other formatting options).

    Hi there.

    Couple of pre-purchase questions (not deal breakers).

    1. We agree that we can assign different field sets 'per' calendar?
    2. By any chance... I bought Club Categories (TheJackal) to have different 'types' of clubs. I need to have different fields for different club categories. Do you think it'll work?
    3. Same question with Collections (DevFuse)? I need to have different fields for different categories.



    PS. long time... 7 years.

    I remember you! 🙂

    1. Yes
    2. I don't integrate with 3rd party modifications out of the box unless they're using the Container/Item/Comment structure. Categories wouldn't use such a thing. That being said... I think Clubs itself supports custom fields. Does it not? Is it not enough for what you're trying to do? If not, we can talk privately about building a custom integration piece.
    3. I haven't ever seen the Collections modifications so I can't answer this question. If it uses the standard structure it should support it.

    Does the stream supports public clubs? Are the forum posts, blog entries, gallery images from public clubs are added to the stream? I do not mean open clubs where user should join to be able to post. I mean public clubs that do not require membership. The contents of those clubs are shown in the default activity stream of IPS. Does your app support this also?

    All club content is included in the feed, regardless of the club type. The app checks view permissions on each item, so the user won't see anything they aren't supposed to.

  14. A new version has been pushed to the marketplace. Changes include:

    • Web link and unsubscribe URLs did not always display properly in the web version. Fixed.
    • Newsletters with calendar events did not distribute properly when being published through a cron job. Fixed.
    • Incorrect outgoing email method was being used for CIC. Fixed.

    It has 3 content types: forum topics, gallery albums, and download files.  

    So, I just did some poking around:

    • I just sent a test distribution to a test email, and it works with the latest content (eg. yesterday's content)
    • I just clicked on Publish newsletter and the newsletter updated on the site to yesterday's content instead of May 11, but ... shouldn't it already be published??  Did v2.1.2 automatically un-publish the newsletter?  Pinging @Christforums to see if that fixes it for him.  

    You know... I bet I know what it is. If I'm right, it's probably related to the publish being done through a cron job. Give me a few here, I'll take a look.

    When I tried to use the unsubscribe link on the user's account when viewing the newsletter by email, I get an error.  It takes me to the URL mycommunity.com/newsletters/unsubscribe/&key=*%7Cunsubscribe_key%7C*.  The error is the standard "The page you requested does not exist. Error code: 1S160/2"

    Oh, this stupid thing. Grrr. The latest 4.4 did something weird to email links. I forgot about this notification, I'll fix that.

    The link DOES display properly in email.  It does NOT display on the site version.  

    I was asked to remove it from the site version because people said it didn't make sense... it would only link to itself.

    2.  No club newsletters were generated after May 11 2019, which according to my notes corresponded to the exact day I upgraded to Newsletter v2.1.2. 

    This one strikes me as odd. What content type(s) do you have set up in the club newsletters?

  17. On 5/25/2019 at 8:29 AM, AlexWebsites said:

    I don't recall but if a user visits their notification settings and un-checks to Send me news and information, the check mark for the newsletter is still on. Do they receive the newsletter still with the main setting off? It doesn't shut off the newsletter toggle.


    What checkmark for newsletter?

    And no, they don't receive the newsletter if that main setting is off.

    I don't see any other reports for this, but my members are getting multiple copies of the newsletter every day. Like up to 20 or 30 copies. Is this something I can fix? Thanks! -troy

    I have one other report of that, but I have no leads yet as to why this is happening. Are you hosted by IPS? What email provider are you using? It would help me to try to find a common thread.

    Hi, is there a demo available of this app? Perhaps more screenshots can be added. I;m missing the visual part of it all. Does it make something like Discovery Streams available for placement in any page?

    I'm afraid I don't have a demo site.

    This is separate from the discovery streams, it's more interactive. For example, you can comment on a topic right from the stream without leaving the page. And yes, it does include a widget for placement on any page (although the widgets are not interactive).

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

    • Prevent Administrators from accidentally triggering multiple distributions of the same newsletter
    • Invalid email addresses consisting of only numbers (from legacy installations) caused the newsletter to get stuck in a loop and to send multiple copies to the same recipients. Fixed;
    • Extended newsletter name field to allow for longer titles

    Thanks to @wegorz23 for reporting these issues.
