    Newsletter module Link to this post

    Hello,

    First of all I want to thank the whole Silverstripe staff and its community for what it is.

    Currently I'm undergoing some problems on the newsletter feature in SS. Before I started I did check out the documentation on creating and configuring a newsletter template within SS. But the problem is that my template doesn't show up in the dropdown box when creating a new newsletter. I've tried both ways (mysite/templates/email/ and themes/mytemplate/templates/email/) and also set the extra _config.php lines.

    I just can't figure out whats going on and I would really appreciate some help on this one.

    *bump* I'm having the same problem.

    I get the new "Newsletter" tab in the CMS, I click on it and there's just two buttons. One's marked "Create", the other's marked "Delete" and neither of them does anything. :?

    Any idea what could be wrong? I've tried looking at the page with Firebug but there's no mention of any errors, it's like the buttons are not connected to anything.

    Vince,

    What version of SS and the newsletter are you using? What path is the newsletter module extracted to?

    Cheers,

    Gary

    Hi, Gary.

    I'm using SS 2.3.1, the newsletter module is v0.1.1 and I tried creating a template in various places, including mysite\templates\email as suggested in the documentation. I also added Email::setAdminEmail("my_email@some.com") to the _config.php file.

    The newsletter module is extracted to the root directory for the site, which would be either c:\xampplite\htdocs\directory\... or http://localhost/directory. I think the path is OK because I do get the extra tab in the CMS, and the buttons.

    I've also downloaded the user forms module (v0.1.0) but nothing ever happens.

    Hi Vince,

    I did have a similar issue to what you described where the buttons where unresponsive but I *think* this was related to the directory name of the module not being set to newsletter. I did change other things at the time and I cannot be sure that this was the solution.

    Cheers,

    Gary
