NEW

Plugin BwPostman Personalize

With the plugin BwPostman Personalize You are able to further personalize text parts of the newsletter, which address subscribers directly, by gender.

In example if You want to personalize the salutation to Dear Mr Whatsit or Dear Mrs Whatsit, then You enter the following at the appropriate position of the newsletter:

[bwpostman_personalize | "Dear Mr" | "Dear Mrs" | "Hello" ]

The first part in this insert is the trigger. The second is the part for male, the third one for female and the last one if gender is not available.

Plugin BwPostman User2Subscriber

With the plugin BwPostman User2Subscriber it is possible to let users subscribe to mailing lists of BwPostman during account creation of Joomla!. The desired mailing lists are selectable at the options of the plugin.

To meet double-opt-in requirements first there is only a select for subscription to the mailing list and a descriptive text is displayed at the normal Joomla! login form. If the subscription is selected, additional fields required by BwPostman are displayed.

The subscription first is set to unconfirmed. It will change to confirmed, if the user confirmed the account.

There are also options to change mail address, if it changes at the account and to unsubscribe if the account will be deleted.
