v1.0 of the Newsletter module was released on February 7, 2011 and adds an exciting new functionality to the PyroCMS platform.
As of v1.0 the Newsletter module has these features:
All template and email editing is done with the familiar WYSIWYG editor. Images can also be uploaded and inserted into the email body using the editor. Requires minimal configuration to get started… if you can send emails with the Contact form your server can also send newsletters.
You can easily automate the sending of emails by setting up a cron job. For example if you were to use curl your command might look like this:
//send at 1am every night 0 1 * * * curl --silent --compressed http://www.example.com/newsletters/cron/gy84kn
If you had a large mailing list and couldn’t send the whole list at once you could simply set a limit in Settings->Newsletters and set multiple cron jobs:
//send at 1am 0 1 * * * curl --silent --compressed http://example.com/newsletters/cron/gy84kn //send again at 1:10am 10 1 * * * curl --silent --compressed http://example.com/newsletters/cron/gy84kn //and again at 1:20am 20 1 * * * curl --silent --compressed http://example.com/newsletters/cron/gy84kn
