Everything for the newsletter module appears to be working fine. Except for the $Member.FirstName in my template. Has anyone had any issues with this before? and aware of any solutions.

  • I've got a Custom Member extending the Data Object Decorator
  • Have version 0.4

I also have a custom function Ive added to NewsletterEmail.php, this works in the template fine.

   function UpcomEvents() {
      $today = gmdate('Ymd');   
      $thirtydays = gmdate("Ymd", (30*86400) + time());
      $month_events = DataObject::get("EventResource", "Approval = '1'
      AND (Date BETWEEN '{$today}' AND '{$thirtydays}')", "Date ASC", false, "20");
      return $month_events;
