Description

This plugin enables you to insert items (one by one or by a selection on one or several categories) from Mosets Tree in your Newsletter.

You can also use this plugin to automatically include your newly created (or modified) Mosets Tree items in an Auto-newsletter or a Newsletter.

You can search in all your Mosets Tree items and then click on one of the item to include it in your Newsletter.

If you purchased at least one commercial version of AcyMailing, you can download the Mosets Tree plugin on our plugin section then install and publish it like a standard Joomla plugin.

You can change the styles used for the title and the content area by editing your AcyMailing template.

Edit the AcyMailing template used for your Newsletter and then set some styles:

  • Style for the content area will be used to encompass your Mosets Tree item
  • Style for the content title will be applied to your content title
  • Style for the read more link will be applied to your read more link (if you have one)
  • You can also set the style of all your links using the Link a field

Set styles template

 

Create your own template

You can also modify the way your Mosets Tree item is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the Mosets Tree item.
Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the Mosets Tree plugin directly otherwise your changes will be overwritten when you update AcyMailing.

Create a file in the the folder media / com_acymailing / plugins (if the folder does not exists, please create it first).
The folder used to be components / com_acymailing / templates / plugins in older versions.
The name of the file should be tagmosets_default.php
If this file is available on your server, AcyMailing will use it and won't use the default one.

On this file you can access the elementd $content and $varFields (which are the article objects loaded from the database) and the element $tag (which contains the information of the current tag used in your Newsletter)

You can display:

  • the title of your item: {link_name}
  • the description of your article: {link_desc}
  • the url of your article: {link}
Using all those variables, you can create your own content template.
Example:
Show/Hide php code
View source
 
<div class="acymailing_content">
<h2><a style="text-decoration:none;" href="{link}">{link_name}</a></h2>
{link_desc}
<?php if(!empty($images)){
 echo '<div class="mosetimages">';
 foreach($images as $onePath){
 //Old version or new version?
 $pictpath = file_exists(ACYMAILING_ROOT.'components'.DS.'com_mtree'.DS.'img'.DS.'listings'.DS.'s'.DS.$onePath) ? ACYMAILING_LIVE.'components/com_mtree/img/listings/s/'.$onePath : ACYMAILING_LIVE.'media/com_mtree/images/listings/s/'.$onePath;
 echo '<img style="padding:5px;float:left" alt="" hspace="2" vspace="2" src="'.$pictpath.'" />';
 }
 echo '</div>';
 } ?>
 </div>
