[resolved] permalinks and html (9 posts)

    Hi!

    When the emails arrive, the permalink is missing to complete the sentence:

    "You may view the latest post at"

    I'm still learning this stuff, so I'm not sure what to do about that.

    Second, when the emails arrive, they are not in html for some of my sites and they are for others. I have compared everything in the settings for each site, side by side, and have found no differences.

    The incorrect emails come from 2pairfarms.com and the correct emails come from cindylivengood.com. They are both free themes.

    Ok, with some extended looking around... I discovered that the phrase "You may view the latest post at" is incorrectly showing in the digest version.

    In the per-post version, it does display properly. However, I want to use the digest version and having the incomplete phrase "You may view the latest post at" is unsettling at best. I am switching to per-post until this can be corrected.

    The other issue with the html not displaying in emails is still present. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    @cindy123,

    Having read you first post I was going to ask questions but you answered some in your follow up.

    There are differences in the {KEYWORDS} you can use between the per-post and digest type emails. Have a look on the Subscribe2->Settings page in the Templates tab and each of the keywords is listed. They'll tell you in the description if they are exclusive to one email type.

    You will also find the wording "You may view the latest post at" in the top template there so all that needs correcting is the template for your site.

    The last thing you seem to be asking is about HTML in the email. This is not possible in the free version, for that you need Subscribe2 HTML.

    @mattyrob,

    Thank you for your reply. Although, I am not sure what you are saying. The daily post email works perfectly. But the words "You may view the latest post at" show up in the digest version without a permalink.

    I did look at the template {KEYWORDS} and for permalinks it says for daily emails only. I thought that meant the phrase "You may view the latest post at" would not show up in the digest version. But since it does show up, it would be nice if the phrase were finished with a link.

    What should I change in the template? Currently, the template phrase looks like this:
    You may view the latest post at
    {PERMALINK}

    Thank you so much for your help!

    @cindy123,

    Okay, you are looking at the right template. Any text in there that is in upper case and in curly brackets {} will be replaced and is a keyword. Anything else will remain present and be in the resulting email.

    So, if you want to use digest emails remove the text that says:

    You may view the latest post at
    {PERMALINK}

    Other than that, you can change it to whatever you like that will suit your audience.

    Ok, so I can make the phrase "You may view the latest post at" disappear, but I can't make the link appear that should replace {PERMALINK}?

    how can I test this without sending emails to all the subscribers?

    Thank you!

    Duh... I found the send email preview button. :( I think this has been a long day. I'll get back to you with results.

    Finally! Some clarity! I deleted the phrase and it is just fine. However, this leads me to make a request.

    I would like a link in the title of each post in the digest to the post so that subscribers may click the link to the post they are interested in reading in entirety.

    In my mind I was trying to have it both ways, which isn't possible at this time.

    Thank you!

    @cindy123,

    There is a known issue with the displaying of links in the digest emails with version 8.6 that's fixed in the development code and ready for 8.7. That would allow a link to the post on a different line from the title.

    I think what you are requesting is a click enabled title - that requires HTML and is therefore not possible in the free version. It is possible in the paid version.
