My next port of call with ocPortal is configuring and sending newsletter.

I would like them sent in HTML format.

So I have been following the tutorial and thought that I would start by copying the example into a new Newsletter.

I clicked "Send out an issue" and then pasted the example into the message box, selected html and then hit preview.

The preview did not show what I expected:

Code

Dear unknown,

Your text goes here.


You're receiving this newsletter because you subscribed at some point. Not interested anymore? [url="http://vwgolfmk1.org.uk/index.php?page=members&type=view#tab__edit"]Unsubscribe[/url].

and the test email looked like this:

Code

[semihtml]Dear unknown,

Your text goes here.


You're receiving this newsletter because you subscribed at some point. Not interested anymore? [url="http://vwgolfmk1.org.uk/index.php?page=members&type=view#tab__edit"]Unsubscribe[/url].

[/semihtml]

So it looks like the "MAIL" template is doing some over riding and the semihtml is not working.

Am I just missing something here ?

Cheers
Ade

Hi,

Not my experience when running some quick tests on your site…

Assuming "Send in HTML-format only" is ticked (checked).

WYSIWYG off + full HTML with <html> tag in it:
Passes directly through as raw HTML

WYSIWYG off + partial HTML without <html> tag in it:
Treated as Comcode, passes through such that the HTML tags would be visible.

WYSIWYG on (whether full HTML with <html> entered into source view, or just normal WYSIWYG editing):
Treated as Comcode&HTML, will be processed accepting both, passes through accordingly.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
