CJW Newsletter - problem with names

CJW Newsletter - problem with names

Monday 07 May 2012 7:04:25 pm - 7 replies

Hi all , 

I have a problem accessing the first name and last name variables in the HTML output of the newsletter.

 

I have already teste name.tpl variables but they are not working in the main template like :

{if eq($nl_user.first_name,'amir')}

<h1>hallo Amir</h1>

{/if}

(code is just a simple example)

 

How can i do that ? any Idea ?

Are you actually building the mail list before sending or are you just sending a test mail?  The name isn't going to be populated until the list is built.

Hi Steven , 

 

I know i cannot get the names on test sending !

i can get the full name by [[name]] but i want a ez publish variable to work with

 

any solution for that ?

At the moment you can use the following variables for personalisation:

       '[[name]]',
       '[[salutation_name]]',
       '[[first_name]]',
       '[[last_name]]'

If this not help you can use a custom tpl for [[name]] creation. Here you can do what you want use custom operators ... . This is enabled in cjw_newsletter.ini

If you use the custom tpl - the backed will also use this tpl to display the personalisation name.

 [NewsletterUserSettings]

# if disabled nl_user.name is created with default shema
# saluation first_name last_name
# if enabled the tpl design:newsletter/user/name.tpl will be used
UseTplForNameGeneration=enabled

We thinking about to have the possibilty to send out testmails with personalisation, but at the moment you can only make real personalistion test by sending out a testnewsletter with the cronjobs. Sorry.

Cheers

Felix

Hi Amir,

The next time you could write your question, suggestions about cjw newsletter directly in the projects.ez.no section http://projects.ez.no/cjw_newsletter/forum.

If you have some time left, you can also write a review.

Cheers

Felix
