  • I asked last year if there was a newsletter feature, because I wanted to send a regular marketing email out to my members and could not work out how to do it. So thank you Marc, I will try this.:):thumbup::thumbup:


    How do I get the emails to address each member individually? So, for my name, I would get a email which said "Dear Jupiter" without typing all the member names individually.

    I am a Newbie Admin. Please be gentle, I don't understand technical things.
    (Please can we have a full manual for this software)

  • I do it this way too. I write my emails/newsletters in a thread called "Newsletter Archive" then leave it there even after I've sent the out the email so there's always a hard copy of the newsletter there in case some people miss it or it gets filtered.

    Do you allow posting in your newsletter archive forum?

  • Create

    is really a good idea of marcbelgique and easy to realize. I will also give it a try today. Since a few hours or days new versions of email newsletter addons are published:

    with the first one it's possible to watch the sent tickets and lots of functions more.

    The other one is more simple, also more cheaper. I haven't tried both of them, but the users are satisfied and happy.

    Currently yes, but nobody's polluted that thread with questions either. I'd imagine I'd make it hard to find an old newsletter if they have to scroll through too many replies. I should have made the first post be a message saying that the following posts are old newsletters and to make a new thread if there are questions.

    Code
    Dear {$username}

    to have Dear Jupiter

  • But note, that this is the only replacement. There's nothing else than the username variable, that you can dynamically replace upon the mail sending process.
