TegoNuke(tm)/HTML Newsletter 1.4.0

Posted on Sunday, April 29, 2012 @ 21:56:27 EDT in HTML Newsletter

Cannot believe that I forgot to release this module to the community! It was incorporated into the latest RavenNuke(tm) 2.50.00 release but then forgotten. Well, better late than never. It has been released! Please see our on-line Change Log (or that provided within the distribution package) for details as to what was modified for this release.

For a more detailed explanation of the TegoNuke(tm)/HTML Newsletter module and a more detailed list of features, check out the TegoNuke(tm)/HTML Newsletter Wiki page.

While this module was developed on RavenNuke(tm) for RavenNuke(tm), it may be possible to use on other *nuke variants with slight variations. Come get the latest download.



New Release Candidates Being Tested

Just a quick update: HTML Newsletter 1.4.0 and TegoNuke(tm) Downloads 1.1.3 have been released to the RavenNuke(tm) team as release candidates.  Each contains updates for issues identified by the team. 

We are very excited about these releases as they will be incorporated into the upcoming RavenNuke(tm) 2.5.0 version.  Development, of course, will continue to progress from Montego Scripts on these two products as each has defined product roadmaps.  Click on the link and sign-in as anonymous to see any of our product roadmaps.  If you want to suggest other enhancements, please post as such in our forums and we will gladly take these into consideration.  Of course, as always too, if you find a bug, please use our forums to report them so we may correct them as soon as possible (often times giving resolutions early on in the forum threads themselves).




HTML Newsletter 1.4 Preview of Changes

Posted on Thursday, August 25, 2011 @ 01:00:00 EDT in HTML Newsletter

As work is nearing completion on the long overdue HTML Newsletter 1.4 version, I felt it would be good to summarize some of the work which has been done.  The 1.4.0 roadmap will show the complete list including upcoming release content (just don't hold me to the dates!), but here are few improvements worth noting:

  • All of the module now, both public and admin pieces, are 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant.  In addition, many code changes were made to bring the module code up to more closely follow the latest RavenNuke(tm) coding style and standards which have evolved over the years.
  • If you used quotes in your body text or subject line, and then you used the Preview function, you may have noticed that your quotes came back into your text once you backed out of your Preview.  This issue was actually resolved as a part of the above code clean-up work.  No more errant back-slashes messing up your body text!
  • Another annoyance (I'm sure) fixed was the ad-hoc email distribution list getting wiped out upon return from the Preview function.
  • The Fancy Content template is now truly XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant.
  • And more...  see the Roadmap link above.

While I had to move out some nice new features due to time constraints and the desire to get this release into the next RavenNuke(tm) version, this is now a good clean and updated version to build upon.

Although Not a Woman, Prerogative to Change My Mind

Posted on Sunday, April 06, 2008 @ 11:22:53 EDT in HTML Newsletter
by montego

I know, I know, am I ever really going to make up my mind about PHP5-only or not and what to do with the HTML Newsletter.  Well, since I was already about 50% through development of the 1.4 release AND the module is in RavenNuke(tm) which is still slated to support PHP4 for some time to come, I am changing my mind.  The 1.x branch will continue to be developed, and I will not make a conscience effort to make it break under PHP4.  Promise. 

My goal has never changed: to support this community of *nukers as best I can with the time allowed.  I had to be reminded of that and so existing products from this site that currently run under both PHP4 and PHP5, will continue to do so.  However, I still reserve the right to only do bug fixes on any and all products.  Most likely, only HTML Newsletter will be enhanced under the 1.x branch.  1.x will be reserved for PHP4 compatible and 2.x will be for PHP5-only as time goes on, even new products released after today will follow this "branch" versioning system.


There Will Be No 1.4 Version of HTML Newsletter

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 @ 07:32:59 EST in HTML Newsletter
by montego

It is with some regrets that I have to cancel my work on the 1.4 Version of HTML Newsletter!  I had made really good progress over my holiday break at the end of last year and so was hopeful to get a new release out before my February 5th deadline for PHP5, the last in the 1.x branch of this project.  However, life and other commitments have basically left me with no time to crack open the code again in the last three weeks.

I will certainly carry forward the features and functions that I had already completed as well as all the great feedback that I have received over the years in terms of desired functionality into the PHP5-only 2.x branch.  But, I am going to do a more thorough review of the Newsletter tool market in order to ensure I am capturing all of the key features that are truly needed (based upon current demand within other products).  This next release may take me two years to complete, OR, more likely, I'll phase in true OOP concepts into the HTML Newsletter and treat the 2.x branch as a "transition" branch.  In addition, the next release, 2.0, will be renamed to simply TegoNuke(tm) Newsletter to fold it in under the TegoNuke(tm) brand name like everything else.

Sorry for this, but what can one do?  There are much more important things in life such as your personal relationship with God and with your various relationships in time, such as a spouse, your family, your close friends, co-workers, etc.  Montego Scripts is just a hobby for me.



HTML Newsletter Version 1.4 in Development

Posted on Saturday, December 29, 2007 @ 14:54:15 EST in HTML Newsletter
by montego

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have completed the planning phase of version 1.4.0 of the HTML Newsletter, the last release within the 1.x branch, hopefully prior to the February 8th PHP5 deadline!  Here is a preview of some of the improvements planned (subject to change based on time constraints):
  • Improve upon data escaping/encoding and XHTML compliance, quoting and formatting (applying lessons learned from RavenNuke(tm) development.
  • Add integration to TegoNuke(tm) Mailer (an advanced mailer that I added to the upcoming RavenNuke(tm) 2.2.0 release)
  • Add Ability to Change Sender Email Address
  • Add Ability to Remove Forum Topics From the List
  • Add Ability to Configure Show/Hide Hits on Articles
  • Add Editor Support for Nuke 7.7+ (a "maybe")
  • Provide Link to Newsletter if Mail Client Cannot Display HTML (and possibly utilize TegoNuke(tm) Mailer's ability to send multi-format emails, i.e., both text and HTML)
  • Allow Ability for Admin to Set Email Priority Prior to Send
  • Add Ability to Change the Addy for the FROM Address
  • Add Support for Large Nbr Recipients (only if have time, as it might be more suited for my planned complete re-write under PHP5)
  • Add Ability to Save Newsletter Drafts (only if have time, and this also implies changing over to store the newsletters in the database rather than on the file system - reduces security risk)
  • And, last, but certainly not least, a few bug fixes along the way.
Hopefully this list has some items in it that the community will find useful. I can tell you that my 2.0 re-write list is 20x larger!


HTML Newsletter 1.4 in Planning Stages

Posted on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 @ 08:38:09 EST in HTML Newsletter
by montego

It has been way too long in coming and I really need to get re-invigorated with working on the HTML Newsletter. I have collected 30 enhancements so far in my tracking system!

With RavenNuke 2.10.00 nearling closure, I am starting to plan out the features for 1.4. I have also decided to start working in parallel a new 2.0 branch that will be considerably different in terms of architecture and flexibility for plugging in new features and new data sources into your newsletters.

Stay tuned... montego

UTF-8 Issue for Persian Nuke Emails!

I have just posted a fix to the Persian Nuke version of the HTML Newsletter. The send of the mail did not have the right charset identified. You can find the post here.
