Hi, All -

I'm having a couple of issues with placeholders in NBv3.01. For starters, I cannot seem to get the #email_header# and #email_footer# to work. Both placeholders are used in the template but none of the actual content of either ever appears in the rendered email. This is odd because in between #email_header# and #email_footer# is the #content# - and this does appear in the email as normal. So #content# works - but neither #email_header# nor #email_footer#.

Secondly, why doesn't Newsletter Builder send the CMSB admin an email notification when someone registers? I would have thought this standard practise?

Hi Perchpole

Thanks for posting! Could you send us a second level support request? Those variables should be working so I'd like to have a closer look at what's going on with your setup.


Also, notification on signup to the newsletter is definitely a neat idea. I'll see what kind of options there are going to be for that and let you know :).

does the Newsletter Builder include a way to set up auto responders? a way to setup multiple interval responders for a drip marketing?

Sorry, multiple interval autoresponders are part of the Newsletter Builder features. I like the idea and will submit it as a plugin request. 

What do you previously or currently used for this?
