How to delete campain or model new campaign after sent one?

Postby jeffschips » 3:19am, Fri 23 Aug, 2013

Hello, love the version 3! Really shines in so many ways.

In the versions previous to 3 I was able to edit a campaign that had already been sent, click on source, and copy that source into a new campaign then tweak it.

How do I do that now?

Also, is there a method to delete campaigns? Reason being that sometimes I test a campaign for mailing tweak purposes and then want to delete it. Otherwise it just sticks around and gets boring.

Thank you.

At the risk of repeating what's in viewtopic.php?f=35&t=39380

The need to re-edit a sent campaign is important. Both to be able to grab the source, and just to be able to modify the message for further recipients.

And I agree with jeffschips that it is pretty boring to look at all those TEST messages in the Sent List!

Thanks.

Hi

After reading JENPEN's post and yours I discovered that like you I could not DELETE a campaign that had been sent to my development test group (list). To solve this and to re-instate the Edit function at the same time I hacked the code a little.

If anyone is interested the code can be downloaded from the following address

http://www.alangeorge-photography.com/listCode_3x.php

Before applying this and any other hack Please make sure that all files and the database are backed up properly.

Regards

Alan

Yes it works with 3.0.5 - although I keep wondering when it will be included in the core.

The best (perhaps the only way) to ask for a change to phplist is to raise an issue on Mantis https://mantis.phplist.com/view_all_bug_page.php, the bug tracking system.

This is a BIG issue for me too. I also need to reuse criteria that have been selected ("criteria" is now a plugin for some reason that I don't fathom), so editing the campaign is needed after I send to a test list. I just posted the need for edit and delete campaigns in Mantis (https://mantis.phplist.com/view.php?id=16943) and referenced this topic and the hack by AlanGeorge (thanks!), so hopefully we'll get some movement on this.
