    Okay so I am not sure whats going on here but I am currently working on getting this fixed. It may take me a little while because I am unfamiliar with programming a plugin for wordpress. I currently have the plugin working but the way i did it is a bit rediculous. I found two pages that were working from the plugin:

    email-users/email_users_options_form.php
    and
    email-users/email_users_overview.php

    I then copied everything from:
    email-users/email_users_group_mail_form.php
    into
    email-users/email_users_options_form.php

    and copied everything from:
    email-users/email_users_send_group_mail.php
    into
    email-users/email_users_overview.php

    In order to get email-users/email_users_group_mail_form.php to open up email-users/email_users_send_group_mail.php when i submit the query I edited the line in email-users/email_users_group_mail_form.php

    <form name="SendEmail" action="post-new.php?page=email-users/email_users_send_group_mail.php" method="post">

    and changed it to:

    <form name="SendEmail" action="post-new.php?page=email-users/email_users_overview.php" method="post">

    So now whenever I want to write an email to all my users i have to go to:
    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=email-users/email_users_options_form.php

    Yes i know this is completely screwed up, but I use this plugin on a daily basis and this is going to have to work for now. I am going to try to edit the plugin and see if I can figure out how to make it work properly.

    Yeah, thanks! I don't use it daily. But I really needed it today and This worked well enough. I'll be looking out for more a proper fix.

    I'm thinking about going to mailpress. I've tried it out. Take a bit of setting up. But it might be the new option.

    Since Vincent seems to not be around anymore and his site seems buggered, I've updated email-users to fix both the access level issues that have occurred due to the recent security fix in WordPress. I've also fixed the missing notify link thing too (using the fix mentioned somewhere else in these forums). You can grab the new version at http://code.google.com/p/email-users/downloads/list

    If anyone notices any problems, please create an issue and I'll do my best to fix it.

    Hi Scythah,

    Great work fixing the plugin, was driving me made trying to get it to work.

    Do you know if it still works with role manager plugin?

    Regards

    I haven't noticed it stopping working with it. Just keep a backup of the original files and if it does stop working, swap back again and let me know what happens. I'll see what I can do to fix it.

    Thank you scythah for your efforts. However, when I install and activate the plugin I don't get the 'Email' menu item appearing on my Dashboard menu. The 'Email Users' shows up under Settings but no actual menu item. I'm running WP 2.8.2 if that makes a difference. However, this is the same result I got when I rolled back to 2.7.1 and reinstalled. Once it quit working nothing seems to fix it. I'm not a programmer so I'm at a loss.

    Any advice?

    Ok, I've made a small change. I can't see why it'll make any difference (especially if you are getting the settings page), but give it a try anyway.

    If you can, disable the old version, delete the email-users directory from your plugin folder, upload the new version and activate it. This is just to make sure there are no leftover files from Vincent's.

    You can see what changes I made in the source code.

    Let me know how you go.

    No, that didn't work either. Actually, I have been deleting the directory on the host prior to every reinstall anyway. If other 2.8.2 users are getting the menu item, then it would seem to be something on my wp install or my host.

    Thanks for the try, though. I hate this. That plugin was great.

    Do you have any other plugins that create their own menus? Or any that modify the menu or could be interfering somehow?

    You could also try doing a Re-Install via the Tools->Upgrade menu to get WordPress to check if there are any problems with the WordPress files. It should work without a problem, but you're best off doing backups of things first. Worth a shot I guess.

    StatPress Reloaded and WP Photo Album both create a menu item and I've deactivated and reactivated them to check if they were still able to create the menu and they did. While deactivated I tried activating Email Users to check for conflicts; none, same result.

    I just tried the Tools-Upgrade you suggested then tried all the above again. No change.

    For some reason activation is not creating that menu item. I wish I knew more about the inner workings of this stuff.

    Actually, I just continued working on the site and noticed that not did you fix it, you brought out some extra functionality that I didn't have before.

    BRILLIANT!

    Glad it's working for you both. jmilford, guess it's a problem with your setup then. If you get a chance, maybe you could try disabling all plugins, enable this one and see if it works. If it does, then start enabling others again until we find out where the problem lies.

    If anyone has any other extra functionality that they would like to see added, create a new issue for me and I'll try to get it done for you.

    I noticed that %POST_EXCERPT% doesn't display whole post content anymore if you don't have post excerpt set for certain post. I send emails with full post content inside, so it'd be great to have this back, or at least make new template tag for allowing us to insert whole post content in the mail.

    Thanks!

    Ok manca, I've updated it for you. See how that goes.

    You might need to go to the settings page first to change it to the setting you want (let me know if when you first install it it shows the "Display full post content" option but acts as though "Display nothing" is selected).

    scythah,

    I got it working! It seems that the 2.8.1 upgrade reset all user role capabilities to WordPress defaults. I had set some capabilities in 'Capabilities Manager' plugin that got zapped. I had given up on Email Users and was looking to do some other things and needed to reinstall Capabilities Manager and happened to notice that there were email caps that I had FORGOTTEN about. Reset those and voila! The menu item appeared and everything seems to work.

    Thanks a bunch for you efforts.
    Jim
