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

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.
v 3.0.2

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

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.
