Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

I would like to creat a newsletter for my site by mem_postmaster, but only one help page was at http://www.benbruce.com/postmanual/, which is now unaccessible.
Does anyone here a list of tags with explanation, please? Thanks.

Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

hi mikulas,

The problem with the plugin is that the latest txp version it works on is 4.4.1

Does not MrDale’s version work on 4.5.x? He suggests it also works on an earlier dev version of 4.6 too. Maniqui also added some fixes (download a few posts after that).

I recently updated a site and in bringing all the plugins back up to date I looked at both versions and noticed there were some differences between the two in the code (MrDale is at v1.0.15). I got it functioning but didn’t test it fully as the client decided it was no longer needed.

Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

Is there a working version for Txp 4.6? I’ve tried several versions of the extension but no luck.

Have you seen jakob’s post right above yours?

Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

I have… No cigar. The plugin no longer works for me on any txp >4.4.1.

Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

Maybe it’s time to merge mem_postmaster and com_connect?

Re: mem_postmaster - Postmaster Revamp

About 60% of the functionality of postmaster was a hacked copy of zem_contact anyway. With com_connect, it should be simple1 to write a module that hooks into its sending workflow.

The plugin’s more open delivery platform means that subscribing to content via third party APIs is easy (see smd_mailchimp and adi_contact for examples). A postmaster module is nothing more than:

  1. An admin panel to map subscribers to subscription channels.
  2. A means of sending an article (via a link or post-processed Textile as HTML) to a subscription channel to be forwarded to subscribers.
  3. A token mechanism (which we now have baked into core and available to plugins) to manage unsubscribe requests and double opt-in.

If someone is going to put this together, it could be done for 4.7. Though we are planning to figure out configuration and delivery via third party mailing gateways in 4.8, to help minimise the chance of a domain getting blacklisted.

1 Comparatively.

Do consider native support too. I’ve been using postmaster for many years and the domain is just fine, especially when you do not go over the top with the send button.

We already have native mail delivery built in. The SMTP would be an option so that mails get delivered by a host other than the one containing your txp installation. It won’t have anything to do with Postmaster, they’ll be set up as core prefs somehow. All we need to do is hijack our internal ‘mail’ call so that it directs it to either PHP’s mail() function or the external server of your choice with the nominated credentials.
