Using Newsletter Plugin



  • Hi first post here, looking for some help regarding the Newsletter plugin.

    It seems everytime I upload an image in my community newsletter it results in a broken image. I can send images by copying address but that doesn't really help.

    Thanks, Alex

    Thanks, I'll put it in the next update.

    For now, you can just add your domain (www.example.com/) to the front of the image address and it should work.

    HI thanks Yariplus for the reply.

    That didnt seem to help. The problem isnt getting from an address its actually uploading it from my HDD. Perhaps its a problem with Imgbed plugin? Everything else with Newsletter works perfectly just cant get the damn uploaded image to show.

    Thanks



  • Please use examples from the bottom of nodebb-plugin-imgbed plug-in repo start page.

    @MassivelyIndie The imgbed plugin doesn't do any uploading of any sort, unless you're on a very old version :D

    If the images being uploaded aren't showing up in the newsletter, it's probably (?) because when you upload an image, it uses a relative address in the post, so in your newsletter it will have the relative address, but in an e-mail it won't have the same context as if you're viewing that post in the forum. If you could post a snippet of the source of the newsletter where you're seeing the issue, that would be much more helpful.

    Fixed in latest. Sorry for the delay.



  • @yariplus What are the short codes that this plugin can replace with real information?

    I have determined that {username} is one of them, is there a list of others?

    Thank you.

    @rod It's actually just {username}

    Is there anything you would like added?



  • @yariplus Thanks but no. I don't have a specific need at the moment. Of course if the plugin already supported others I could probably figure out some way to incorporate them into a future newsletter email.
