[Split] mass email in HTML format

Post by thetripperchic » Fri Jun 08, 2018 4:50 am

in 2018 i bet there are very few email programs that can't read html. so can it be coded in one of its files to take html?

Yes, it can be - will it be? Unlikely.

The best place to ask would be extension requests. Also, please don’t reply to five year old posts, start your own topics, thanks.

If you look in the language/your_language folder there is folder called "email" that contains templates for the different emails that are sent. You'd have to test it but I think the email templates only contain the body and also work just like the page templates.

Replying to five year old posts is no good to you or the general public. Everything has changed in that time so necro posting doesn’t help. This topic was split off and can be used for your issue.

Thanx Mark.
MODs DO NOT work of 3.2.x and neither is there Automod (not the need for it) EXTENSIONS are what is used in 3.2.x They are far easier than installing MODS and absolutely no code editing is needed.

For how to install an extension see, Installing Extensions.
