[how to] create custom Placeholders

Postby kamaleo55 » 12:26pm, Thu 25 Oct, 2007

Hello,

I installed Phplist in several websites.

I'm wondering if it is possible to create and configure new placerholder.

If yes, how?

Thanks

You can create your own placeholders based on the attributes you created first.

Would be AWESOME if we could use placeholders that we have defined in the email itself, such as [SUBJECT] or [DATE] to show the email's subject line or the date it is sending automatically.

This can then be used with Google Analytics tracking so that it automatically tags links in templates with the email's subject line, allowing for tracking each email without changing the template each time you want to send out.

...still no solution for this ?

I am sending an automatic email everyday to 22000 subscribers...and unfortunately, everyday, I have the same subject line: "Mail of the day".

Any quick fix for a Dynamic subject which would change according to...may be...the <h1> tag ?

Thanks

This indeed is one of the (many) most wanted features.

You might have a look at this thread: [mod] Using placeholders in the Subject line.
It may still need some work, but I suppose it might serve as a starting point for what you want.
