vazco_mailer v1.1

Release Notes

CHANGES FROM 1.0:

  • a few minor bugs were fixed

 

There's a commercial version of this plugin, with a lot more features, available here. It allows to send messages to multiple users and groups, as well as to collections. It supports templates. You can test it live on this site.

 

HOW IT LOOKS:

Administartor can send e-mail to all the group members. He can use special markers:

{$message_receiver} - the name of the receiver of the message

And templates for e-mails. Templates can be later used by group e-mails. Some markers for templates:

{$message_body} - the context of the message {$message_title} - the title of the message {$message_sender} - the name of the sender of the message

Template example:

when you create the template in plugins settings:

[image - logo of my page]

Welcome {$message_receiver}

{$message_body}

(This message was sent to you by {$message_sender})

 

and send "It's good you joined this group" message to the group, each group member will get the following message:

[image - logo of my page]

Welcome Name Surname

It's good you joined this group

(This message was sent to you by Admin's name Surname)

INSTALLATION:

  • copy to mod folder and enable
  • you can configure some PHPmailer settings in plugin's settings, but it's not required for the plugin to work

NOTE:

This plugin is using PHPMailer methods created by Cash Costello  in the PHPMailer plugin.
