Automatic Trigger Email Campaigns with MailBeez Modules

Recommended Posts

just a question

i am using succesfully mailbeez for some time now

 

but every once in a while i notice not all productpictures get loaded in the email

what happens when i look at the code of the email mailbeez put an extra dot. between de name and the jpg extension on the picture so it becomes ..jpg

here you can see it in the code , strange thing it happens not will all pictures even in one email sometimes the first two go ok but than the code changes into the ..jpg

anybody has an clue ?

thanks Arthur

hi arthur,

 

actually another user reported this strange behaviour as well, but we couldn't find the reason.

 

Which PHP version do you use? I guess when you deactivate google analytics url rewriting you don't get that isses?

 

I guess somehow the regular expression of the google url rewrite is causing it - but I can't find a reason for doing that only in rare cases.

 

cheers

Hi arthur,

 

helps not really. With the following information I hope to be able to narrow down the issue:

 

What PHP version do you use?

 

Did you try to disable google analytics? (and what is the result then?)

 

cheers

hi thom000,

 

you site theme has probably CSS-styles buttons, which are not shown in the email.

Just make your own button picture and use it in the template with an absolute imagepath to that button image.

 

Or use a text-link.

 

cheers

hi arthur,

 

does that ..jpg issue only appear in the sent email or also in the preview of the sent email (assuming you are having MailBeez V2.3+ installed where you see the generated email when sending - if not configured different)

hi swissmix-steven,

 

looks like you updated mailbeez to version 2.2+, but not completely - or you merged old configbeez modules in to the new version.

 

Make sure you follow the update instructions so you have all mailbeez core files up to date.

 

cheers

cord

 

PS: thanks for purchasing the review advanced module and others ;-)

hi Arthur,

 

 

After investigating the issue with missing images I think it might be caused by the mime class whihc breaks the email after 76 characters.

 

Looks like the . is added when the dot in the filename is at this break?

 

So try to add / remove some characters in your template or break into several lines so that the . moves away from the line break at 76 characters.

 

does that work?

 

cheers

thanks Cord i will try to do that i wil l let you know if it worked and we get rid of the dot

 

by the way i don't have 2.3 yet i tried to install this but it didn't work after installing i opened mailbeez to let the program do the automatic install thing but i got an error, as i did back up right it took me some effort to get the 2.02 install back on his feet again

i don't remember exactly what the error was , i belive it could find some files he needed for the install

sorry about that

Arthur

hi arthur,

 

good to know, so the issue is actually not caused by mailbeez, but by the MIME class of osCommerce.

 

The Upgrade to the latest Version of MailBeez (now V2.5) should be easy - if 2.02 runs, 2.5 will as well. pitfall can be there must be full write-access to mailhive/common/template_c - MailBeez has an enhanced check for that since V2.5

Mailbeez v2.5 is Released!
thumbsup.gif
Here finally some information about the new release of MailBeez V2.5:


All the new features in v2.5:

  • Reversible unsubscribe – customers can unblock their email address from the linked unsubscribe page if they wish to resubscribe
  • “Kill Process” button designed to stop long sending processes in case the administrator wishes to amend the email campaign (configuration > process control)
  • Design improvements and new dashboard icons
  • New status indicator that clearly displays production or simulation mode in a prominent position in the Mailbeez dashboard
  • Generic framework enhancements
  • New default email layout at a new, inbox friendly 600px width
  • Mailbeez copyright footer now appears in all free to use module emails – easily removed with the MailBeez Copyright Remover Certificate module

MailBeez V2.5 is also an important bugfix release: In earlier 2.x versions when filters were installed double sendings (only once) could appear in rare occasions



If after updating your MailBeez looks different, do a [shift] + reload to reload the CSS files.

>Send Test Email works, but no Emails are sent

>Make sure you have a valid email address for “send copy to”

 

Checked for valid email address, still does not work in "Review Reminder Advanced with Autologin". Did not upgrade (Purchase) to "No Purchase Advanced" and default No Purchase Module still works fine. BTW, the new "MailBeez Copyright Remover" footer looks like crap and "white label your emails and remove this footer" that goes to customer is unnecessary. Simply using the "Powered by MailBeez and Copyright Mailbeez" in the footer would be more professional.

 

>Pop-Ups are blank – GZIP

>The Pop-Ups are based on CeeBox. CeeBox does show blank when the content is GZIP compressed (took me a couple hours to figure out…)

>Check if your storefront where mailhive.php is located uses GZIP compression - I tried to override the GZIP compression setting in the code but you >might have a different setting.

>You can check if your server uses GZIP compression on http://www.whatsmyip.org/http_compression/

>Solution:

>Deactivated GZIP – is this works, try to figure out how to deactivate GZIP on page-level and apply it to mailhive.php.

 

Deactivate GZIP? Really? That's not a solution for an active website that sees great speed improvements because of GZIP. Why does "Contact Customers without Purchase" work but the purchased module "Review Reminder Advanced with Autologin" not work?

Hi there,

 

Today I've installed the new version of Mailbeez.

Did it very simple. Backup everything. Rename mailhive dir and installed everything new.

 

When I now go to admin/mailbeez.php i've got an internal server error 500...

I'm working on version 2.2 of Osc.

Did you make the template_c directory writable? If you've installed version 2.5 it should work right out of the box...at least it did for me but I do recall having to chmod one of the directories....dan

Installed this great module and the two free modules for No Purchase and WinBack but when I tried to run the simulation it gives me the following error and it does not seem to have created this table mentioned in database.

 

1146 mailbeez_process table does not exist

 

select lock_value, batch_id from mailbeez_process where lock_key='RUN_LOCK_TIMESTAMP' order by lock_id desc

 

Can you tell me how I can get the SQL statements to run without having to uninstall anything? I had a terrible time with getting the emails to appear correctly as the mime setting for only 76 characters breaks everything.

 

Thank you!

 

Also, is it normal to see this above the actual HTML version of the email when sending a test email?

sorry for my late reply - simple didnt received any notifications as I usually do!

 

1146 mailbeez_process table does not exist

select lock_value, batch_id from mailbeez_process where lock_key='RUN_LOCK_TIMESTAMP' order by lock_id desc

when you update to Version 2.5 this table should be created automatically (see mailhive/configbeez/config.php::update() ). MailBeez 2.5 does not require any un-/re-install of modules, so an upgrade can be done by copying the new files - just make sure you do not overwrite you adopted templates (.tpl files)

 

Please try again to update all MailBeez V2.5 files following the update instructions included in the download package on mailbeez.com

 

Also, is it normal to see this above the actual HTML version of the email when sending a test email?

no, that is not how it should be. I think your linefeed settings of oscommerce email system are some wrong.

Do you have any modifications around your email function? MailBeez uses the osCommerce email engine (see mailhive/common/functions/email_engine.php)
