  1. I'm not sure what you mean by built in send. It doesn't use the bulk mailer, but it does usethe IPS email functions.
  2. There's clearly something going on with your template logic, but it looks fine to me. If you want to give me ACP access, I can troubleshoot, but there isn't much I can do from here.
  3. Strange that it should go out hourly. I'll look into it. For future reference, you can always just disable the newsletter, which would stop distribution. As to the newsletter going out every time a topic is posted, I'm sorry, but the chances of that happening are basically zero. The newsletter is not connected to the posting process and is not touching it in any way, shape, or form. It's likely the task being triggered by site activity, as was suggested. The newsletter task IS set to run hourly (only to check for newsletters waiting to go out), but IPS handles which tasks are executed when. So.... disable the newsletter, and I'll have a fix for you later. You're right. I think the current settings were done that way specifically for a single customer back in IPB v3, and then I just ported it over. I'll change it.
  4. A test is not the same as a publish. The only way to see how that works (right now) is to do an actual publish. When you click on the unsubscribe link, one of the parameters is a hash that is unique to the issue ID and the member. An issue ID is not generated until a publish and does not exist in test mode. For this reason, I cannot put a functional unsubscribe link into a preview or a test. If you want to see how this works, I suggest setting up a newsletter and distributing to Administrators only. I will add to my enhancement list to create a "dummy link" for testing purposes. If you're referring to gallery images, I am pulling the thumbnails generated by the gallery itself. I am not making any changes to image dimensions or anything else, just pulling them from IPS.
  5. Fix for this issue is now available in the Marketplace.
  6. Fix coming tomorrow. I've got it fixed locally, but I have another bug I'm working on... have to figure that one out first.
  7. It doesn't look like that by default anymore. I redid the default templates so that they look a little better than that.
  8. A new version has been pushed to the Marketplace. Changes include: "Next Distribution" date was not calculated properly after a Saturday distribution. Fixed. Newsletter form now correctly uses GMT time.
  9. No. I haven't found a way to make this work generically - meaning, for all areas, not just topics.
  10. Update distribution time is not a task. That occurs immediately when the distribution is triggered (to prevent exactly the above scenario). I will take a look at this bug tomorrow.... you're the first to report this. The idea here is that when the newsletter is published, it loads the queue with everyone who should receive it, then recalculates the next distribution time, then triggers the actual distribution process. The "prune" does nothing to the newsletter itself, it only clears out the logs, so running that task will not help you. I think I know the problem.... you're not quite right about the daily/weekly logic, although that is the problem area. The real issue, I think, is that the STARTING point is off. Instead of calculating from current time, I should add 24 hours and start from there (because the current time will read as a valid time). Since we just distributed now, the soonest we would send again is 24 hours later. You can expect a fix tomorrow. Sorry... I just can't get to a pc tonight.
  11. Integrity is subjective, though. People who do support the travel ban view it as "the right thing" for the citizens of this country. Take another hot-button issue as am example - abortion. Both sides view their stance as the one with integrity. Most people don't go out of their way to support something they think is wrong. That's just nuts. So, the actual thing to do here, the one with real integrity, is to stay out of it and not get involved. Because IPS has no control or influence or involvement in this topic, and therefore one could argue that making a statement in itself is argumentative and just a way of enforcing their PERSONAL political views on the public. (Which btw, is the exact opposite of democracy.)
  12. But it doesn't actually DO anything at all. It's not doing what's right, because it's just useless. The only thing it does is alienate half of your customers, no matter how you look at it.
  13. Companies shouldn't even HAVE a political stance, unless they are in the business of something political. Software companies? Why? What does it accomplish? It's especially important to consider that the US is currently extremely divided, in a political sense. That means that whatever stance you take, you're going to tick off half the country. Best to keep quiet and upset no one.
  14. Must we bring politics to every godforsaken corner of the Internet? Where is my safe space?
  15. I don't know. The problem is that once you start with filters, there is literally no end to the filters that would be requested. I'm not sure if I'm looking to open that "can of worms", so to speak.
