    I need a quick and easy way to send simple mail notifications to all member bloggers on http://blogpeopria.com.

    Any suggestions for a plugin?

    I use a custom piece of code to simply generate at txt list all user emails, I then copy/paste that list into my desktop email client and go from there.

    Using the server to send out scads of unsolicited emails has brought me more headaches. Pretty easy to get on gmail's blacklist - very tough to get off of it.

    So I use email client and my alternative smtp rather the php mail on the server.

    Interesting. Where do i save this script on my server and what should i name it?

  4. The very first line says /for /mu-plugins/ :) Make a file (email-list.php) and put it in there as an MU Plugin

    I saw that. But I am stupid and need to be told the obvious. Thank you.

    OK, I'm more confused than ever. I read the Must Use Plugin page you gave me, and now I am not sure exactly what directory to load this plugin into. I do not have a wp-content/mu-plugins directory.

    Seriously, I cannot figure out where this plugin is supposed to go.

  9. I do not have a wp-content/mu-plugins directory.

    So make one.

    You're over-thinking all of this and freaking out. it's all okay. Stop. Inhale. Exhale. Okay? These are all just files.

    Google 'mu-plugins' and there are lots of tutorials out there, like http://halfelf.org/2012/mu-plugins-are-good/

    Well, I tried to call up the page blogpeoria.com/wp-content/mu-plugins/email-list.php and I got the following:

    //for /mu-plugins/ add_action('network_admin_menu', 'ds_emails_all_add_menu'); function ds_emails_all_add_menu() { add_submenu_page('settings.php', 'Email All', 'Email All', 'manage_network', 'email_all', 'ds_emails_all_page'); } function ds_emails_all_page() { if( is_super_admin() == false ) { wp_die( __('You do not have permission to access this page.') ); } ?>

    Email All

    Following is a list of email addresses that are administrators of one or more blogs on this WPMU installation.

    Fatal error: Call to a member function get_results() on a non-object in /home/blogpeor/public_html/wp-content/mu-plugins/email-list.php on line 30'

    Any help will be appreciated.

  12. Your paste had everything on one line... are you sure that was right?
