Mail-List System Feature Enhancement - FeedBlitz newsletter RSS/ATOM
The use of an outside mail-list system is not unusual.

I'm using [http://feedblitz.com|FeedBlitz.com] to get newsletters to users.

It would be nice to have the FeedBlitz system integrated with the Tiki registration module.

Here is what their Knowledge base says about integrating this kind of requirement.

Newsletter subscriptions by anonymous
I'm testing a tiki replacement for our old CMS Made Simple CMS. I'm using the Fivealive Theme and I've set read permissions for anonymous visitors to view newsletter archives though they have to subscribe. In that window to subscribe there's a CaptCha code but there isn't a dialogue box for entering an email address to subscribe. However, when I enter the code, I get the following response:

"Newsletters Help

Thanks for your subscription. You will receive an email soon to confirm your subscription. No newsletters will be sent to you until the subscription is confirmed."

Obviously, that can't happen without having an email address to send the confirmation to.

I've tested this in Konqueror, Chromium and Firefox in an Ubuntu environment; Chrome, IE9 & Firefox in Win 7 Ultimate environment; and Firefox and IE8 in an XP Pro environment. All with the same interface results.

4.0: changing newsletter editor from wysiwyg to normal produces blank page
I created a test newsletter on a new tiki 4.x (using recent svn, similar to tiki4rc1)

* Switched editor to wysiwyg
* copied some content from this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_R._Ehrlich (from the title "Paul R. Ehrlich" until the title "other activites" (so that, it's including also a few images available on the internet, in case it matters)
* cliked on the switch editor button (to go back to a normal editor showing wiki syntax)
* a blank page is produced, after 10-15 seconds.

Add IP to syslog and/or action log when anons (at least) add content (for spam protection)
Add ip to syslog and/or action log, so that when anons (at least) are allowed to add content and it's spam (robots seem to be able to post with our current antibot captcha), there is way to identify the ip of the spammer.

So far, antibot captcha is added (in trunk, at least) to:
* wiki edit
* wiki page comments
* forum posts
* tracker item comments
* freetags
* calendar items
* newsletter subscription

The action of adding content on those features should be logged in syslog and/or action log and IP recorded.

Announcements: There should be an easier way for ppl to stay up to date
Currently, an administrator of a Tikiwiki installation has to hunt for upgrades, updates, and security related information of his installation. It is often cumbersome and sometimes dangerous, think of the delay in fixing a crucial vulnerability, it has happened elsewhere before. It might also be nice to know that ppl are using current and feature complete software.

HTML newsletter/email output unreliable/distorted
I will paste long test results that i posted in forum at the end.

Simple explanation is that my HTML email that i send as newsletter gets corrupted by my MTA. Pretty sure this is a Tiki issue since i get 100's of correctly formatted html email every day.


Been pulling my hair out for hours trying to figure this out; decided to try searching forum (will someone with admin please enable full text search on this site???). Came across this post that sounds much like my problem. Doubt anyone still watching this post but maybe Sylvie is still keeping an eye on it.

I have authored a very lovely, very html rich newsletter. Thought it would be very cool to use TW to send this as an email (ala TW Newsletter). But my email seems to be getting corrupted in numerous very confusing manners. Like I said I have run about 50 tests so far and results are a bit sporadic… so just a few of the results:

- the html file I am trying to use as content for my newsletter can be seen (perfectly I might add) I a browser at [http://www.ottawavolleyball.com/newsletters/nl_0505.htm]

- nl preview almost always looks correct – but not always (can’t handle background style color setting for example – but no big deal)
- I am using a few different mail programs and different mail servers
o mozilla mail, Outlook, and webmail
o my ISP mail account and the mail server that run myself

- basic issue is that when I look at the email – it is messed up
- looking at the html source that my email program spits out I see 3 basic types of corruption:
o characters being lost (ex. link to gif is http://domain/ball.gif and it ends up as http://domain/bll.gif)
 this of course shows up when viewing the email as a missing graphic
o characters are being inserted
 the “=” character is being thrown in all a lot ; and sometimes the character string “3D” – which amazingly enough is ASCII for .. you guessed it – the “=” character
 this of course has a similar effect to characters being lost

the REALLY messed up part of this problem is what is consistent and what isn’t:

- my ISP mail account generally works better
- errors are repeatable – sending same email over and over will always same corruption
- that corruption is mostly repeatable between Outlook and Mozilla – but not completely

Like I said I have far more details test results – but I figure if someone knows the answer to my problem – they likely already know it from what I have reported so far.

My final test was to simply scrap the whole formatted html newsletter idea and just send a text email giving link to see html nl in browser. My simple one liner with a link also gets corrupted but only when going through my email server (my ISPs works fine).

Any thoughts would really save me a lot of hair…

Newsletters not being sent out normally if Gzip output is enabled
When Gzip output is enabled under Admin | Spped & Performance, it is not possible to send out newsletters greater than 100 in number, if at all. When attempting to send newsletters, it shows a 'Cannot load page' message in the frame where the log of email addresses normally appears.

Newsletter - problem in get_all_subscriber when login name contains uppercases
A user registered himself, and chooses as login a name with uppercases (Stephane).

Two newsletter are created, with different subscriptions:
1) group subscription, including the aforementioned user
2) user self subscribe

When sending newsletter 1, the email is sent to the user.
When sending newsletter 2, the email address of the user is not found in the database and cannot be sent (despite finding the correct number of subscribers)

I traced it to two libraries:
first in ./lib/newsletter/nllib.php, in the function get_all_subscriber, we can see in the first part of the function how the email adresses are collected based on the subscribed groups. The select is mostly direct, and gets the correct information.
Later in the function (line 215 and following), individual users are added to the list of emails. Line 218, the "email" from the table tiki_newsletter_subscriptions (which is the login for registered users) is brought to lower case. (Note: I'm not sure, but it could be that the subscription module also puts the login in lower case in that table...)
Finally, line 232, the function get_user_email uses as parameter this lowercase login name to find out the actual email address.

This function is defined in the library ./lib/userlibs.php on line 5581.
This function compares the login passed as parameter to the login in the users_users table, but with a "binary" comparison, i.e. case sensitive! Removing the binary keyword lets the newsletter module find the correct user, and then its email.

Group registration in newsletters conflicts with the "Use email as username" feature
To reproduce

# Install a fresh Tiki
# Create some usernames as usual
# Set "Use email as username" feature to yes
# Create more users (this time, username will be the email)
# Create a newsletter
# Subscribe the Registered group to the newsletter
# Send a newsletter

The system will crash and be unable to send the newsletter because some users don't have valid emails. If you error reporting is activated, you will get a message like this:

System error.

The following error message was returned:

Duplicate entry '3-mcradmin-g' for key 'PRIMARY'
The query was:

INSERT INTO `tiki_newsletter_subscriptions` (`nlId`,`email`,`code`,`valid`,`subscribed`,`isUser`,`included`) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?,?,?)

The built query was likely:

INSERT INTO `tiki_newsletter_subscriptions` (`nlId`,`email`,`code`,`valid`,`subscribed`,`isUser`,`included`) VALUES ('3','mcradmin','6b78cc21c16e768dd8fbb6b538c6bf78','y','1339700591','g','n')
Things to check:

Is your database up and running?
Is your database corrupt? Please see how to repair your database
Are your database credentials accurate? (username, database name, etc in db/local.php)
Did you complete the Tiki Installer?
Please see the documentation for more information.

Permission on Newsletters using Group Permissions

as written to the dev list, I had the problem to restrict access to some newsletters but not to all. I found a solution, but I am not sure, if this breaks nothing else. Here is the problem:

I want to set up some newsletters: One with access from anybody (anonymous users can subscribe and view the archive) and some others with access only for special groups of users.

On global permission page I set 'tiki_p_list_newsletters' and 'tiki_p_subscribe_email' for anonymous users (this permissions are not available on the object permission page).

On the object permission page for the single newsletter (accessible through /tiki-admin_newsletters.php and the key icon of every newsletter) I activate 'tiki_p_subscribe_newsletters' and 'tiki_p_view_newsletter' for the group of users with permissions on this newsletter.

With this settings I would expect, that an anonymous user browsing page tiki-newsletters.php would see the list of newsletters, in this case showing only the public newsletter. But in this case there is an error (You are not logged in). As a privileged user (allowed to see all newsletters) the page is accessible but empty, not showing any newsletter.
