When I send out the newsletter, the group settings jump immediately to group and the error message appears. Are database entries made during installation?

Hello there, I try to find the Newsletter EXT that girello was talking about. The one by Cece74 and dmzx (which is now ABD Newsletter).

Neither link leads me to a downloadable version. I need to have more than 5 posts to PM the developer. Can anybody please help me out?


Either that, or please direct me to working mod / ext that allows me to add Images in form of BBcodes or something. I tried using the phpbb-ext-newsletter, but this one only changes the header/footer of the Mass Email. It doesn't offer you HTML emails.

Thanks in advance

since html email in phpbb is a security risk you are not likely to get one anytime soon.

I would suggest you simply download a mailing list from your database and use it in whatever email/newsletter software you have for this.
it will work much better and give you a lot more options than anything you could do with phpbb extension.

Using a third party Mailing List is out of the option. This is extra work for me and I'd rather keep it in one engine.

I currently modify the phpbb.de/Newsletter script, which does change the header/footer of the Mass Email - but it can not incorporate a logo or do some rudimentary layout stuff. Maybe in the future.


@Leinad4Mind
I don't think you can forward me a PM as long as I don't have 5 posts made. Can't even send you one... this limitation is a bit annoying, but I understand where this is coming from. I'd also be interested in the "premium extension" though.

I understand but since there is no function in standard phpbb to create html email it would probably be easier and faster to do it using a program designed for it.

you simply run one query on your database to get all the usernames and/or email addresses. you save that as a csv file.
then, whatever email program you use you can create a mailing list using that csv file and poof , you are done.

A possibility but then "subscribe/unsubscribe" won't work and my mail provider might consider the mail sent from my mail program as spam.

I could try it, if I'd know the code. But I already know that this backfires and is still(!) extra work. So I guess for the meantime, I hope to get a PM with the HTML Newsletter script to check out on a test install, and use the phpbb.de script for changing the header/footer of the Mass Email (still in TXT form, but better personalization/legal imprint possible)
