3 bug : white page, html entities, email partialy sent

Postby masdeeper » 7:42am, Sun 21 Mar, 2010

First, html entities was not working and I was getting strange character instead of my usual foreign letter like "é è ç"
Even if I checked to receve HTML emails..
I tried to change UTF-8 without success

I discovered that when you mass import userthe "Send this user HTML emails" option don't work..
So you must do the "mark all users to receive html" in the reconcile page...
Voila :D

Second bug whas that some of my emails where partially sent. By checking the source code I saw that after X character phplist stopped to send data.
To solve this you must change change the database field type of phplist_message.message to longtext

Third one, some mail client show a white page instead of the actual email. (hotmail, outlook, etc)
This is because when user copy/paste from Words to fckeditor in firefox,saffari the option to clean the text don"t show up... So you send emails with:
<!--[if gte mso 9]>
This is a regular HTML comment.. No problem if your email reader don't support this function..
Other wise this is a regular if/elese ... If mail client is ♦microsoft outlook (mso 9) do this...
