Automessage 2.0

Hi all

Version 2.0 of the Automessage plugin is now out of beta and available from the plugins main plugins page, there are a few extra configuration options added between the beta and this version as well as some scheduling bug fixes.

I will be uploading / adding a migration add-on as soon as I can so if you are already running the old version and / or have queues in existence for pre-2.0 versions it will be advisable to wait until I make that available.

    @Barry or if someone else can help me out, this plugin must not be compatible with membership plugin. I tried it on a test site without membership plugin installed and it is sending ok. Then I tried it on my main site with membership plugin installed and it did not send any emails. So I tried it on a completely different website (a 3rd site) with membership plugin installed and again it is not sending any emails.

    Maybe I am off base but just to let you know these were my observations.

    Not sure if related but in my plugins directory for the main site I only have marketpress and membership plugin installed but there are a few third party plugins installed on the other two.

    I can of course send error logs if needed.

    Hope I can get it going.

    @drdave - it certainly should be compatible. There are currently two methods that the plugin can use to "find" users - one is to hook in the WP new user creation hooks, the other is to regularly poll the users table to find new ones - obviously the first is the neatest, but the second is in there in case some plugins interfere or bypass the signup calling hook (which membership doesn't - it uses the standard WP user creation functions).

    To switch from one method to the other, open up the config.php file in the automessage/includes directory and change the line that looks like this:
    // If the actions aren't working then use this to check up on users.
    define('AUTOMESSAGE_POLL_USERS', false);

    Change the false to true and re-save and the plugin will switch to polling instead of using the actions.

    ok, deleted the old version, installed and activated the new one.
    Foudn out all the old settings and messages are gone :slight_frown:
    would have been nice to have them imported or at least saved before activating the new plugin version :slight_frown:

    thx. could really use the transfer script!

    besides I see no mentioning about HTML support or not?

    also the plugin could use a test button! that way I could send a test (automatically to the site-admin or to a manually entered email) to check if the mail looks right.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
