Plugin Options

The plugin has quite a few options:

Language for the plugin

With this option you can choose a translation for the plugin. Please see Translations for more info. Deafult value: default

Checkword

This is like a password. When you want to send the newsletter you’ll have to provide the right checkword. This is to prevent visitors and bots from accidentally sending the newsletter. After you install the plugin you should change this checkword, so that it is not the default value! Default value: MyNewsletter

Encoding for your mails

This is the encoding that will be written into the e-mail header (might be useful..) Default value: UTF-8

Send your mails as:

Using this option you can choose to send HTML-mails (using content-type text/html) or plaintext-mails using text/plain. If you choose to send plaintext-mails you should ofcourse not use html-tags in your newsletter-skin, and the plugin will try to strip all html-tags before sending the mails. Default value: HTML

Send individual mails

When sending a newsletter the plugin can send an individual, personalized mail to every user or you can choose to send only one e-mail (in this case the BCC-field is used). Individual mails are nicer (because they can be personalized), but need more resources to send (more server load) Default value: Yes

Subject of mail

The subject of your newsletter, by example “Daily update of Tom’s blog” Default value: Daily update of my blog

Mail address of sender

The e-mail address that is used as the sender of your newsletter. This address is also used to send notifications when sombody subscribes/unsubscribes, so if you want to use that option you should change this e-mail address to be a valid one. Default value: noreply@example.com

Name of sender

The name that is used as the sender of your newsletter Default value: My blog

Send "welcome" (and "sorry to see you go") mails?

If this option is set to yes, the plugin will send a welcome (or sorry-to-see-you-go mail) when a visitor subscribes to your newsletter (or unsubscribes). You can personalize these mails by editing the templates Default value: Yes

Notify me via e-mail when somebody (un)subscribes

If this option is set to yes the plugin will send an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided in ‘Mail address of sender’, every time a user subscribes or unsubscribes to your newsletter. You can personalize these mails by editing the templates Default value: Yes

Only send mail when there are new items?

If this option is set to yes the plugin will check the date of the most recent item and compare it with the ‘Timestamp of last time a newsletter was sent’ to see if there are new items since the last time a newsletter was sent. Only if there are new items a newsletter will be sent. If this option is set to No, the plugin will always send a newsletter even if there are no new items. (if you set the option to ‘yes’, and want to force the plugin to send a newsletter even if there are no new items you can append force=true to the url, see below) Default value: No

Page to redirect visitors when successfully subscribed

People that successfully subscribe to your newsletter will be redirected to this page (you can by example redirect them to a page saying “thank you for registering”) Default value: (url of your blog)

Page to redirect visitors when successfully unsubscribed

People that successfully unsubscribe from your newsletter will be redirected to this page Default value: (url of your blog)

Timestamp of last time a newsletter was sent (Blogoption)

This option is used by the plugin to store the date and time of the last time a newsletter was send, so it can find out if there are new items before sending. You should NOT change the value for this option (unless you really know what you are doing ;-) )! (As of v1.2 this option will be readonly when using Nucleus 3.1+CVS or higher)
