HTML email handler v1.1

Release Notes

Some bug fixes

  • added: a link to notification settings in footer of message
  • changed: layout of default message
  • fixed: links not clickable in email clients
    • How to integrate this with the Gmail account ?
    • Does this have a cron triggering option?
    • will this over ride all mail notification setting of ELGG site?
  • @Thuvalpakshi:

    - what do you mean with "How to integrate this with the Gmail account"?

    - "Does this have a cron triggering option" => No

    - "will this over ride all mail notification setting of ELGG site". It will not override notification settings, this is a plugin that handels the email notification to a user. Default Elgg core handels this, I overrule the handling to allow nice HTML mails

  • in php mailer we can put a smtp server address like gmail is that possible here?

  • @Thuvalpakshi:

    in php mailer we can put a smtp server address like gmail is that possible here?

    no

    PS: I used to use phpmailer myself, because emails didn't arrive. Since i use this plugin i don't need the smtp server anymore. (i also use gmail for all my mail)

  • can this work with eportfolio? php mailer doesnt seem to be working at all...doesnt deliver and cant send with eportfolio... would this work with it?

  • @Cynthia Lara: which of the eportfolio plugins? I can find at least two http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/project/527419/developer/pablob86/resume-aka-eportfolio or http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/project/714180/developer/ihayredinov/eportfolio-alternative-profile.

    However if PHPmailer doesn't work I think this plugin will also not help you.

    I can give you more information if you tell me which eportfolio plugin you use

  • Great plug in. Recommended! I was having &nbsp problems and the wall of text. This cleaned it up. I am left with a question and a suggestion.

    1. Doesnt seem to pick up on the formatting other than arrangement. My emails wont show the bold, italics, or links.

    2. It would be nice if you could send out abbreviated email. Just a snippet instead of the whole post (for blogs is what I am thinking). The purpose for email notices is to bring people back into the site..or so my strategy goes.

  • The bold, italics, etc should be picked up. Links are most likely blocked by HTMLAWED rules for input. Blogs/snippets in (html) emails is a different story. There is some PlugIn called NewMailer that re-formats Blogs and Pages to become emailable html-formatted content (though I believe that's not been GPL'ed, ie not a freebie) that interface also to handling true CRON timed mass-emailing.

  • Jerome, thanks for the plugin, it worked fine for me. 

    But I found a strange problem, All messages works fine, But Admin is not receiving any email notification. While uses are receiving normally.

    I am using 1.7.10 version.

    with widget ad profile manager, with wall to wall plugin.  

    Please tell any possible solution.

  • Adding to the problem, I am unable to open my messages in message Inbox. I disable your plugin but problem not solved

  • @adoi:

    But I found a strange problem, All messages works fine, But Admin is not receiving any email notification. While uses are receiving normally.

    The admin has a valid e-mail address? Also the admin has email notification enabled (check under settings)?

    Adding to the problem, I am unable to open my messages in message Inbox. I disable your plugin but problem not solved

    This plugin does nothing with the messages plugin, so that has to be an other problem

  • hello Jerome,

    Yes, admin have a vaild email address, But after activating your plugin problem arised. Admin not receiving any notification but uses are receiving.

     

    Yes private messages are still not working, i activated and deactivated this plugin many times also, i try running upgrade.php. but nothing happened. Private message plugin was completle left of no use. 

    I am using mostly core plugins with izap viseos, tidypics, river comments, and widget manager

    Actually Jerome, it  is same problem arised when i used HTML mails plugin by susana. I tried with your plugin and found your mail templates better. I tried with my 3 installation with same version and i got same problem after enabling your plugin. Private messages becomes unreadable. Any idea for conflicts.

  • Being away from the elgg community for some days now. The e.portfolio I use is iHayRedinov's ePortFolio as DhrupDeScoop said (now called hypeportfolio or something like that).Sorry for the late replay, I hope you can help me out :)

  • @Cynthia Lara: hypePortfolio uses PHPMailer, so the mails send out can't be handled by this plugin. It would require some code rewrite of the hypPortfolio plugin to make it compatible with this plugin.
