Automatic Trigger Email Campaigns with MailBeez Modules

Recommended Posts

Hi Niels, I didn't get any notification from the forum about a new entry, sorry for the late reply.

 

Have you been able to solve the issue? Looks like you have a config cache addon installed, which currently is not support by MailBeez (it supports already a number of config caches).

 

Just get in touch with me through this forum or the helpdesk on mailbeez.com (green tab on the right hand side)

 

regards

I've been on a long vecation and this project was put on hold. I will try this in the next few days.

 

I will edit this post when I've done it.

Just wanted to share this "Loyalty-O-Graph" I saw today at a MailBeez user:

 

post-277634-0-03004100-1349727905_thumb.png

 

 

Orange: percentage of second orders

Blue: percentage of third orders

Red: percentage of fourth+ orders

 

The graph show how the loyalty of customers is influenced in a very positive way. Customers order again, not only more place a second order but also a third and fourth+ order. Looking 730days back there is a nice comparison how MailBeez creates measurable results.

 

The merchant is using Winback advanced, reorder advanced and MailBeez ReferralHoney. He sent out about 10.000 emails in the last 6 months by running MailBeez on a daily basis (so approx 50 - 60 highly personalized emails per day).

Have a look in your mailhive/mailbeez/winback/email/ directory....you should have a couple of files there called body_txt.tpl, body_html.tpl and subject.tpl.

 

The message you are getting is telling you that those can't be found....if you find that they are indeed not there...see if they are in the zip file and if so just upload them to that directory. Let us know how it works out...

Hello. My emails now go with Phpmailer with iso-8859-9 (Turkish), w/o any problems w characters.

 

But now I have installed Mailbeez and trying birthday module, but somehow mail subject and content is encoded in UTF-8; which is not properly displaying Turkish chars.

 

1) under templates, char is set to iso-8859-9

2) i also found a file mailbeez.class.phpmailer.php and set public $CharSet = 'iso-8859-9';

 

so how to get rid of UTF-8 encoding and replace it by 8859-9?


Thanks,

Yavuz

Hi, Just installed this module, it looks ok, but when trying to send a test email from trustpilot module, the popup page stays at processing, the event log only shows MAILHIVE_TEST_INIT mailhive initiated. If click email templates preview, both html and txt popups show blank. The popup mode has been set to 'off'. If run the trustpilot in test mode, get the same result, popup page stays at processing, but if click show recipients, the right recipients list is shown in a popup page. The FWR Security is not used. Please help!

The next Version 2.7.4 of MailBeez will give more controll on the encoding.

 

currently you can try to change the enconding in the main email template

As discussed through the Helpdesk I assume that your server does not allow the executing of the eval() function - which is used by the MailBeez System.

 

Solution: enable the execution of the eval() function.

@@MailBeez Love the mailbeez system but I have a small problem:

 

Hi,

 

Trying to send out some HTML emails as a newsletter via mailbeez bulkmailer.

 

All the £ signs in the email are prefixed with an A (with a cap on) when the email is opened.

 

I have tried setting the email header to UETF-8 as in the code below:

 

Dear $firstname $lastname,<br>
<meta name="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<div align="left">
 <table border="3" width="600" id="AutoNumber1" height="506" bordercolor="#008000">

 

and I am also using the £ method of inserting the £ symbol as below:

 

<p align="center" style="margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0"><b>Product xyz From  </b><font color="#FF0000"><b>£13.61</b></font></p>

 

But still I get the prefix and its driving me crazy !!

 

Any help would be appreciated - is the encoding of the mail set somewhere else ??

 

Many Thanks

Hi Mort-lemur,

 

sorry for my late reply, just realized that the notification settings needed to be updated.

 

Am not able to support 3rd party modules like the bulkmailer, but your issue looks like the encoding is not correct set. In any case the meta tag must be in the header section of the email.

 

The next mailbeez release will give better control about the encoding applied inside mailbeez

 

best regards

@@MailBeez Thanks Cord - I didnt realise it was a third party module...

 

Where does mailbeez draw the header information from when sending emails?

 

Thanks

hi,

 

depends on whether you use the stores email function or phpmailer (you can configure that in mailbeez > configuration > email engine)

 

currently the encoding is code in, but also set in the maintemplate (as of version 2.7)

@@MailBeez Thanks Cord,

 

I currently use Mailbeez on the shop email function, so I guess I need to look where that is coded.

Hi

 

Hoping someone can help me. I have installed mailbeez on one of our shops - excellent, no problem.

 

Have tried to install on our second shop (much larger but identical) and after clicking the install button it timed out after about 4 minutes. Now the mailbeez link brings up a blank screen -

 

I have tried to run the SQL to remove and retry (DELETE FROM configuration WHERE configuration_key LIKE ‘MAILBEEZ_%’;) But all I get is a message saying there is an error in the SQL syntax (Help!!)

 

Thanks :wacko:

I'm thinking of creating brand specific newsletters and a more generic way to get the limited audience

 

I plan on adding the additional sql filter in the template directory and call it in the bulkmail constructor

  $this->sqlFilterTemplateResource = $newsletter.'.sql.txt'; // located in folder of this module

 

and the getAudience function to include this like


  $query_raw = "select c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname, c.customers_id, c.customers_email_address
	    from " . TABLE_CUSTOMERS . " c where c.customers_newsletter = " . MAILBEEZ_BULKMAIL_CUSTOMERS . . $this->sqlFilterTemplateResource. ;   	

 

any thoughts on this or other suggestions ?


KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON

I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!

 

Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt

hi carine,

 

the official MailBeez Newsletter module (still in beta) will support filters for all kind of segmentation including selections by brand.

 

So w/o programming you would be able to narrow down: "Women, age betweend 18 and 25, who have purchased products from brand "xyz".

Bugfix for MailBeez 2.8

 

As with MailBeez 2.8 there is a bug causing issues with the clicktracker:

 

please replace in

mailhive/common/classes/clicktracker.php round line 86:

$rewritten = str_replace('/?', '/&', $rewritten);

with


$rewritten = str_replace('/&', '/?', $rewritten);

 

if you already have sent out emails, you can "repair" the links with following rewrite rule (.htaccess)

 

 

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} /&mid=* [NC]

RewriteRule ^(.*)&mid=*(.*) /$1 [L,NC,R=301]
