Description

This plugin enables you to insert users (one by one or by a selection of one or several groups) from Easy Profile in your AcyMailing newsletters.

You can use this plugin with the AcyMailing Smart-Newsletter feature to create a weekly newsletter and automatically send the newly created profiles.

This plugin also enables you to include personal data from Easy Profile in your AcyMailing newsletters so that you can include the Easy Profile avatar of the receiver in your emails for example.

You will also be able to filter users based on their Easy Profile data so you can send a Newsletter to segment of your list based on the Easy Profile information (only to Male for example).

If you own one of the paid versions of AcyMailing, you can download this plugin, then install and publish it like a standard Joomla plugin:

Create your own template

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

Create a file in the folder media / com_acymailing / plugins (if the folder does not exist, please create it first).
The name of the file should be easyprofile.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 element $varFields (which contains all the user information), the element $tag (which contains the information of the current tag used in your Newsletter) and $link (the user link)

You can insert the user information using this simple syntax : {firstname}, {email}, or {link}


Using all those variables, you can create your own user template.

Here is an example:

Show/Hide php code

View source
<div class="acymailing_content">
{avatarhtml}
<a href="{link}" target="_blank" >
<h2 class="acymailing_title">{firstname} {lastname}</h2>
</a>
Email: {email}<br/>
Registered Date: {registerDate}
</div>
