[resolved] Ability to send newsletter to all subscribers (6 posts)

    All I want to be able to do is send an email/newsletter to all subscribers,
    I don't want subscribers to be able to email each other
    I need to be able to email all subscribers for important announcements, so i don't really want them unsubscribing
    I don't need it to send out digests of posts.

    Just sending a newsletter the "email users" plugin does most of what i want although it allows people to unsubscribe from the newsletter, and i don't think i can send html emails

    any suggestions help would be great

    I use this to email my subscribers:


    I was able to send HTML emails also with it. You want them to be able to unsubscribe, this is not slavery.

    Ok I should elaborate, its a small NPO (non profit organisation) and they just want to send out their newsletter to only their members, and they would like to be able to have headings etc, without having to hand code the html everytime they send an email, the "email users" works but there is no wysiwyg editor which is essential for them, as they are not at all computer savvy.

    We build our Newsletter in a Word-processor then make it into a pdf file that is put on our web site - we then email a link out using BCC and plain email stuff - the old newsletters are still on our site for people to read if they want.

    Hi Saildude, that is what they used to do, however they ended up having to talk people through using acrobat/or why the pdf wouldn't open in their browser etc, so a simple newsletter with bolded headings seems fairly idiot proof (I hope)

    Anyway we solved this issue, i now have tinymce working in the text box in the "Email Users" Plugin, so that we can send emails with a bit of minor formatting

    I solved it using the method detailed on this page
