I could do this in ver 2.x but not working same way in 3.x

I have a customer that does a blog every week and wants a message sent every week automatically to which the code is the same every week (it pulls data from the blog) saying that this blog is updated

Question I need to find out how to send this same email out to everyone in the mailing list every week.
in ver 2.x i just set it to requeue at 1 week time frame however now in version 3.x the recue only sends it to the people that did not get it the first time
how can i change the settings recue the same message once a week to allow to everyone on mailing list every time instead of copying the code each week and scheduling it again manually

You probably want to use the "repetition" function, not "resend". This will create a new message by copying the previous one, and so that will be sent to the full list.
You can enable this in config.php
Code: Select all
# Repetition. This adds the option to repeat the same message in the future.
# After the message has been sent, this option will cause the system to automatically
# create a new message with the same content. Be careful with it, because you may
# send the same message to your users
# the embargo of the message will be increased with the repetition interval you choose
# also read the README.repetition for more info
define('USE_REPETITION',0);
