Mail Name in Unsub form

Post by daniel_jao » Tue Mar 22, 2011 10:23 am

Hi, is this possible, displaying the Mail name in the unsubscribe step 1 form?

please point me to the correct direction.. can we use script action in the form itself?

Have you tried script command

Code: Select all

$Mailing.getShortname
in your unsubscribe form?

You have to load the mailing object first with something like

Code: Select all

#set($mail=$MailingDao.getMailing(ID, 1)
But this would not help since you do not have the mailing ID (it is encoded in the UID, but there is no decode method available.

i managed to include the mailing id in the url, so i should be able to get the mailing already, but not working still: ($mail seems is not getting the value, because when i access th page, im getting the $mail.getId() being printed out in the page)

There is no method getId(), but getMailingID(), getShortname(), etc.

ok.. i tried changing to this:

#set ($mail=$MailingDao.getMailing(100, 1))
<td><h1><strong>$mail.getShortname()</strong>UNSUBSCRIBE NEWSLETTER 1/2</h1>

and im just getting this printed out:


$mail.getShortname()UNSUBSCRIBE NEWSLETTER 1/2

Do you really want to unsubscribe from our newsletter?

it doesnt give me the shortname equivalent value. im sure that the mail id is 100 and is associated with company id 1. so what am i doing wrong?

Hello @ all,

i have tried it on my system and it works.
I have used zwo parts: 1x action, 1x form

Action: shortname
step 1: script-action

Code: Select all

#set($mail=$MailingDao.getMailing([Mailing_ID], 1))

#set($scriptResult="1")
[Mailing_ID] = your mailing_id

Form:
aktion: shortname
Success-Form:

Code: Select all

<h1><strong>$mail.getShortname()</strong>UNSUBSCRIBE NEWSLETTER 1/2</h1>
If i call now the url like http://yourdomain.com/form.do&agnCI=1&agnFN=[form-name]
i get the shortname of the mailing.

Greetings.

We will update the script action examples in the doc to make it clearer how to implement stuff like this.
