I am using subsilver, I just modified the graphics and colors.

There is only 2 changes in the template directory anyway.
A bit of javascript and a form tag.

Code: Select all

Could not obtain list of email-sessions. If you want to create the table, click here to install
After I click to install it takes me to the main forum index page. It doesnt log me out like RobX, just opens the index page in that frame.

In admin_megamail.php find (it's inline):

Code: Select all

append_sid('?mode=install')
and replace it with:

Code: Select all

append_sid('admin_megamail.php?mode=install')

Thanks! Worked like a charm.

Question though. I am sending out a HTML formatted "newsletter". When I send it out it arrives as just plain text and Outlook isnt reading it as html. But when I send the same code out through my own client it arrives in html format and displays properly. Is there something in the megamail code that does something to the html formatting to make it invalid?

it would be good to be able to set the mail headers to choose text/plain or text/html
You can have it all if you like... but you can pay for it the rest of your life.

R. U. Serios, another great hack!

Worked without any problems at phpBB.de ;-)

Feature requests: since the mailings are aved to the DB, could the mailing text also be saved?

Thank you very much. :) Actually the text is saved, you can look it up in the db. I didn't quite had the time (and idea) to make an interface for viewing it. Unfortunately I'll be gone on holidays for a couple week, so ddon't expect anything from me for that time.

Glad to hear it's working on phpbb.de :)


Greetings

this is a fantastic mod, only one thing that it's missing:

Can we have the ability to include the user's name and email address in the email? For example:
Your name is: {USERNAME}
Your email address is: {EMAIL_ADDRESS}

That way the users get reminded of thier contact info and avoid having double sign ups. I've got it running on phpbb 2.0.6 and its working like a charm. Please try and incorporating the above mentioned features :D

Thanx, keep up the great work!

I just found a mod where admins can show the username's on the emails being sent in Mass Email:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=47894

However, the script is rather difficult and filewise its all over the place, if you can combine both of these two scripts we can all have one very powerful Mass Email script with unsubscribe, show username, useremail and other essential features such as session queue and more. 8)

Hope you add that to your list,

Thanx

Sorry but I have a rookie question and I have only used one hack so far. I'm running 2.0.4 and my template is fisubice (nice work Daz) and I've tried the mass e-mail fuction twice, each time the page expired.

Someone gave me the link to this thread and I grabbed the download mega_mail_v096, unzipped it and I got three files. Do I just upload those into the proper directories? R. U. Serious, have you really made it that easy on me?

Yes, that should suffice.
If you have a mysql-db, then the script will try to create the necessary table itself if it is nonexistent.

I am running mysql on Red Hat 7.2. Is there something in the mod that will install/build the tables or will it happen the first time I attempt to e-mail our members. I don't want to be viewed as "Mr Spam" trying it more then once. The site runs great now, we have had almost no problems and I would hate to start chasing people away.

I got it installed and have the window open to send mail and have this in the header. Does that just report the e-mail activity once I send or is something missing.
