    Hi there,

    You'll want to contact the author of the plugin: erlgo [at] ipc6.com, or perhaps report the bug in the plugin's issue tracker :)



  • @julian said:

    perhaps report the bug in the plugin's issue tracker

    I would have done it, but the author/repo had no issue tracker.



  • I had similar problem with this plugin, but after restarting application it started working, i.e., settings page is visible and works.



  • I restartet it about 10 times in the meantime, but it didn't change something.



  • Have you tried restarting NodeBB?



  • Many times in the meantime.

    P.S.: Clicking 5-6 times on the Installed Plugins > Emailer (local) Smtp SSL crashes nodeBB. 😮

    @Hägar I believe emailer-local should contain settings for SSL. Perhaps you can give that a try?



  • @julian I tried this plugin at first. There was no SSL specific setting.

    Okay, thanks. Best bet would be contacting the creator of the plugin directly via email. Hopefully he can help you out :)



  • Maybe somebody like to merge the ssl-specific-parts back into actual emailer-local plugin. The "emailer-local-ssl" was a fork of the "emailer-local" plugin.



  • Update:
    I activated the "Require Email Confirmation" checkbox in "ADMIN CONTROL PANEL > SETTINGS > USER". - Now the test-function works with the emailer-local plugin. I get the test mails. Even when i turn the checkbox off again. 😃



  • When open the "Emailer (local) Smtp SSL" in an new window...

  • @Hägar please check this pull request: https://github.com/erlgo/nodebb-plugin-emailer-ssl-smtp/pull/1

    It tells you what has to be changed in template file to prevent that error.



  • Ouch. That's a funny bug. 🐞 And that's the reason for this thread. If applied you get the settings-view of that plug-in.

    The plugin itself doesn't work, but you can change the settings. So it's a first step. ☺





  • Glad you found workaround. Still, its strange that you cannot use nodebb-plugin-emailer-ssl-smtp module (or the other one) alone.



  • The other one (emailer-local) "works", but only if the setup was made with this one (emailer-ssl-smtp).

    I believe perhaps it has to do with the case, that they share the same settings in the database.



  • It probably help authors of those modules, or at least "emailer-local", if you could find what's different in settings in database. Maybe it's just a tiny option, that could be added to emailer-local and it would work in both cases?

    Looking into both modules package.json and index.js it looks like https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local/ does not install "nodemailer-smtp-transport" like https://github.com/erlgo/nodebb-plugin-emailer-ssl-smtp does by default. Maybe it was just a case of missing dependency?

    As for sending mail, emailer-ssl-smtp adds secure: true when setting up transport, but that does not seem to be stored anyway, so shouldn't be used by emailer-local.
    Also transport initialization is done a bit differently, but that too shouldn't matter because it's not "shared" in any way between modules.



  • I thought this must be just one line or one function. I stared at the code and the database, and didn't get what's the point of the matter.

    Sorry. I just could reproduce it, but didn't know why it works that way.




Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
