You also need to add a newline before the text so that:

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

Is this plugin compatible with txpv4.0.6. I am yet to upgrade to it but somehow I think that postmaster will stop working as it does not cohere to the naming conventions for txp. I was waiting for the plugin’s new release for a long time now and with 4.0.6 it is possible that it might break. Can somebody confirm?

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

This issue is not fixed in the code:

Looking at the code I think i found a bug. In the Postmaster library you have:

$end_mime = <<<end_mime
--$mime_boundary
end_mime;

I think this should be:

$end_mime = <<<end_mime
--$mime_boundary--
end_mime;

You are missing those two “—” at the end. This causes sending of invalid HTML/TXT mails :(

Gemal,

The fixes are made in the version I have, I just haven’t packaged it up yet.

Updated to Postmaster v.0.4.3 and Postmaster Library v.0.2.2

Hi Ben,

thanks for the great improvements in the new postmaster version.

I’ve come across one bug, though: in the lists edit area, the textfield for the e-mail subject behaves weirdly, see screenshot. After saving, parts of the subject are cropped.

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

andreas,

Very odd. I found one list on one site that had that same bug. But when I saved a new subject line in the input field, the issue went away. Not sure what that is.

Can you confirm:

  • that you are using PM 0.4.3 and PML 0.2.2
  • that when you save a new version of the subject line in that odd input field, it’s cutting off the end of the subject line and still giving you the bug? or does it go away after you’ve saved a new version of the subject line?

Yes.

It stays when I use this subject line: [KGN] <txp:bab_pm_data display="Title" />. The content seems to get stored alright because the mailings arrive with a proper subject. However, when I call the list admin page again, what I get is what you see in the screenshot. Then, the subject line is always cut at the same spot:

[KGN] <txp:bab_pm_data display=

But, when I use <txp:title /> instead of the PM tag it seems to go away — even though I had to flush the cache to see any changes. (That didn’t help with the PM tag.)

andreas,

Thanks for the info. I think I might have it now — my quess is the quotation marks in your tag are messing with the PHP. If using <txp:title /> is working fine for you for now, do that, and I’ll poke around in there and see if I can’t get that fixed up for the next version.
