This documentation covers the recent changes to the available functionality in the emarketing module.
Listing newsletters on the front-end of a site
The pbAdvNewsletters skintag has been implemented to allow newsletters to be listed out on the front-end of a Pegboard site.
Example usage of the new skintag is:
[pbAdvNewsletters Campaign="General News"]
[Item.Name] - [Item.Description] <a href='[Item.PreviewURL]'>View Preview</a><br/>
Available skintags in the item/altitem templates:
Formatting pbItemField values
The pbItemField skintag has been extended to now include a ‘Format’
property, which allows the output to be formatted as specified.
Examples of the Format property in use are:
[pbItemField Field="CreatedDateTime" ItemName="Item1" Format="dd-MM-yyyy"]
[pbItemField Field="RetailPrice" ItemName="Item1" Format="0.00"]
Invalid Email Report
The Invalid Email Report displays the subscribers that have provided an
email address that does not match the correct email pattern, or have
provided an email address that is not reachable via a test send.
Subscribers with an invalid email address can easily be removed from emarketing using the delete button.
Autofill newsletter items
Items that are associated with a
newsletter, such as the latest news, or products, can now be
automatically selected using the “Autofill Items” section on the
newsletter details page. The items can be selected from any collection
on the site.
Note: This still requires the use of the pbItem and pbItemField skintags.
Ordering of campaigns
Campaigns can now be manually sorted in
the console. This sorts the campaigns both in the console and also on
the front-end when using a campaign selection on a member signup or
Exporting Delivery, Opened, and Links Reports
Delivery, Opened, and Links reports can now be exported via the reports section in the console.
The links report has an export for both the summary and the link detail reports.
pbSubscriber skintag in content regions
Content regions inside a newsletter in the
console now support the use of the pbSubscriber skintag. This allows
the site administrator to personalise the content of the newsletter to
the subscriber without needing to make a change to the email template.
Example usage is the same as would be used on an email template:
Allow rendering of link literals
The following skintags now have a new
skintag to allow the link to be outputted without the surrounding anchor
tag. This allow finer control over the styling of these elements.
pbReferFriend - pbReferFriendURL
pbUnsubscribe - pbUnsubscribeURL
pbUpdateSubscriber - pbUpdateSubscriberURL
pbPreview - pbPreviewURL
