The plugin provides extra commands to handle campaigns, beyond those in core phplist.
  • copy a campaign to a new campaign
  • delete a campaign, regardless of its status
  • edit a campaign, regardless of its status
  • resend a campaign to specific subscribers
It also provides the core phplist functions of requeue and delete drafts.

Which release of phplist are you using, and how did you install the plugin, manually or through phplist?

In your plugins directory, there should be:
- the file CampaignsPlugin.php
- the directory CampaignsPlugin

If the directory is not present then you will need to install the plugin manually.

Hi Duncanc,

Thanks for the response. I have installed the plugin manually and I'm using PHPlist version 3.0.5.

I've installed other plugins and they are working fine.

Hi Duncanc,

I managed to get it working! :D :D :D

What I needed was to remove "/" from the config file.

From this,
Code: Select all

To this,
Code: Select all

I bumped into this thread and gave it a try. And it worked! Thanks for your feedback.. :D :D

I uploaded common and the campaign plug in files

didn't upload changelog

in admin i view campaigns and there's no extra button to select to delete an old campaign

so the plugins aren't being seen

when I went to plug ins it said plugin directory not write enabled

I clicked the box to erase the message so now plugins is just blank

so I have commons and campaign uploaded into the admin/plugins directory

yet there's no way to do what the plugin does

manage campaigns so I can delete an old campaign

so plugins is now blank

the campaigns screen is identical to a normal install

no changes

The plugin adds a menu item "Manage campaigns" under the Campaigns menu.
If that is not present then you have not installed the plugin correctly.

I don't see the extra option

So the plugin scripts didn't upload right?

I extracted the plugins no problem

transferred the folder with the config file

I used the same 'automatic' selection on my ftp program I did for PHPlist

any ideas what went wrong

or should I just upload again both directories and config files?



I uploaded both scripts again


same thing

no extra manage campaigns in campaigns tab

Have you enabled the two plugins on the Plugins page?

Plugins page is blank

It had a message

Plugins directory not write enabled

Is that the problem?

Please read and follow the installation instructions, and see your config.php file for the plugin directory.

I'm just getting everything up and running (306) and after sending a campaign the other day I deleted it from the list in error. Today the list shows 0 messages sent or bounces recorded.

Question: Does deleting a campaign using this plugin also delete the message count, or is my brain fried and I just thought I sent it!
