[ARCHIVED] Postmaster (0.4.4) -A simple newsletter manager

This plugin was forked by manfre mem_postmaster
============================

Postmaster offers:

  • easy installation;
  • email-on-post right from the “write” tab;
  • bulk email capability;
  • unlimited lists;
  • robust subscription / unsubscription forms (using Zem_Contact_Reborn);
  • option for HTML emails that degrade gracefully to text versions;
  • extensive help;
  • and much more!

It has been tested successfully on Textpattern v4.0.6 and v4.0.6.

Get Postmaster v.0.4.4 and Postmaster Library v.0.2.3 here: http://www.benbruce.com/postmaster

Here’s the changelog.

Here’s the home page for the new Postmanual: http://www.benbruce.com/postmanual/

Please post bug reports and questions here in the support forum.

Thanks,

Woohoo! The export and import functions work great! Thanks!

Also, for anyone upgrading, make sure you deactivate/delete the old postmaster library, otherwise your site will be broken until the old lib is deactivated.

Great News!

However, I cannot install the plugin (get an “empty code” error message; library installs just fine). Ben, would it be possible to also provide a compressed version of the plugin?

Thanks a lot.

Haven’t tested yet but when installing the library 0.2, it did not replace the old 0.1 version.

I added a note to the download page about the Library. I also added a compressed version of the plugin (made using the new, advanced ied_plugin_composer). The Postmanual site is done with Natalie Jost’s “Blueprinted” design (from the 2007 Textplates competition).

Re: [ARCHIVED] Postmaster (0.4.4) -A simple newsletter manager

I am testing the plugin and it doesn’t seem to work for me:(

This is what I have in the form

Dear <txp:bab_pm_data display="name" />,


<txp:bab_pm_data display="body" />

===========
If you do not wish to receive emails from us please go to
http://www.neme.org/newsletter
and enter your email to unsubscribe. Once you do that, your email will be completely deleted from our database.

At the moment i have only 2 of my addresses in the database for testing purposes.
The email is sent to both but it only contains the following

Dear ,
===========
If you do not wish to receive emails from us please go to
http://www.neme.org/newsletter
and enter your email to unsubscribe. Once you do that, your email will be completely deleted from our database.

None of the tags are parsed. :(
The plugin and the library are both enabled.

>Edit: I can provide you with access to our site should you wish to check what it is which might be causing the error.

Re: [ARCHIVED] Postmaster (0.4.4) -A simple newsletter manager

Is there any way I can log each bulk sending in order to spot delivery errors etc? It seems not all subscribers got their email so it would be nice to see who got it and who didn’t.

cheers,
