    I was having a slow moment lol.


  • I know this is going to hurt but here goes, I do not see any where to email my users I have set up the postmark server pasted the API and restarted my site, I have looked at the help section on postmark but it's all about codes not stuff for none devs like me.

    Hey @StuartH -- the emailer plugin is for emails like new user registration and password reset emails. They are fully automated.

    At this time, we are not planning to add in functionality for you to email your users, so you would have to manage your own email mailing list (using something like mailchimp)

    @StuartH I'm nice
    https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-mailchimp

    this will subscribe your newly registered users to a MailChimp-List of your choice, as for your already-registered users ... oh well, here's a half-assed node.js program https://gist.github.com/akhoury/8294882 that will generate a CSV list of your existing users, which you can easily import to the same list on MailChimp.

    ps: I haven't tested this plugin since 0.2.0 .. so, handle with care

    EDIT: I just read that you mentioned you're not a developer, well, it's still easy to generate the list:
    if you need help let me know, maybe ill make it a plugin.

    # this is assuming you're on a linux or a Mac machine
    cd NodeBB/node_modules
    mkdir temporary_crap
    cd temporary_crap
    wget https://gist.github.com/akhoury/8294882/raw/2db16f4ea5dca49fd1546e1638a451fbe624ca7d/nodebb.emails.js
    npm install async
    npm install fs-extra 
    node nodebb.emails.js
    # wait for it to be done, then
    cp emails.csv ~/Desktop/emails.csv
    cd ..
    rm -rf temporary_crap

    @bentael thank you very much, I will ask the guys to install on to my instance, and yes I can not code yet so if you had the time to make the additional plugin I would be grateful. I am looking to start learning coding, I know a little html but that's it atm, looking at the local collages to learn because if I try from home I will be easily distracted 😞 3 teenagers, 1 wife, 1 dog, 1 cat and a business to runpicard-facepalm_1290449_GIFSoup.com.gif
