progress on this?

What is the progress on this right now? I'd like to get an idea how far away from the desired amount the donation pledges are. What is the desired total pledge amount and what is the current status?

Thanks, Duncan

PS. I'm involved with an online business owners community that would be really interested in this feature. Currently their tool of choice would be SendStudio (at $229). If the desired total amount is reasonable, I'm pretty sure that I might be able to get a large number of small pledges to get this going.

Timed autoresponder

I have add the timed autoresponder functionality to my install of phpList.

While creating a message you can specify the number of days you want the message to be sent after a user signs up to your list. So if a user signs up on Jan 1st and I have a message timed for 7 days the user recieves the message on Jan 8th. If another user signs up on May 1st he/she will recieve the same message on May 8th. You can set up any number of messages you want.

Please share your autoresponder code

Autoresponder Functionallity

I am in the process of creating a log for the changes I made to phplist for the timed autoresponder.
I don't get much time so it may take a few more days.

I applied the fix to the 2.8.12 version. (The new send a message page in the updated version is annoying.Whoever changed this page should change it back.) Although the timed autoresponder should work in the new version.

If you are in desperate need for this functionality and can't wait maybe we can work someting out PM me.

I don't mean to rush you in any way, but I was just checking on the progress of your work.

This mod is going to push phplist over the edge!

Thanks for you efforts!

Hello Goose.

Checking in on your progress. What is your eta for the log. This is a very needed component of PHPList.

After some e-mailing and trying to get this mod working, I recieved some errors.
Aaron wrote me: "I have been busy as usual, and have not been able to add the mods to a fresh install of phplist. The modifications I made to my install include some other custom mods, and would not be beneficial to you."
So I guess we'll just have to wait some more :(...

I too am looking forward to this feature and I am willing to pay for it. Tincan, feel free to have a pro version - I would pay money. This feature is sorely needed in the marketing industry and there are no great and cost effective solutions out there! :)

Hello everyone.

I must apolgize for the delay in the modification I promised. My hard drive crashed and I lost my data temporarily. I was able to recover all my data and I will create an install file in the near future. I expect to add all of my modifications today and start testing in the next few days.

Regarding the sequencial autoresponder Questions

Hi to All,
This being my very first post please excuse any ignorance of previous posts...Firstly thank you phplist for being totaly free "Applause" it seems that as users we have a responsibility to help in upgrades if not by being Genius Developers who actually understand what Coding is all about by being happy to contribute a donation...From what I have read so far all are willing so all we need is a coder to give us a price to add a sequencial autoresponder and set up a fund target figure the faster we reach the figure the sooner we get the responder each person can then donate whatever they feel it would be worth to them...Just an Idea

Hats off to coders anyway I think they are brill

Sorry Goose I put in my pennys worth before I realised
