I've tried using newsletters in Tiki6 with the article clipping feature,
and it's nice what you designed, Nelson, because you get the html of
that article post, and you can edit it at will at newsletter sending
time (remove any unneeded html syntax), etc.
Since we had planned to use newsletters extensively for the Barter
network websites based on Tiki, we had in mind to use some custom wiki
page with plugins and modules to fetch content from Tiki and send it to
groups of users on newsletters (upcoming events, new articles, new items
in trackers, etc). However, I see that there are lots of links and a few
buttons which are useful when you use those plugins in Tiki, but not
when you send the content in a newsletter (read more, add event, etc.,
are shown in the sent-newsletter as colored text with no link... and
imho, it would be even better if they don't appear in the newsletter, in
order to have a newsletter as clean as possible.
And I wonder, what's the best approach in the mid-term:
(1) go plugin by plugin and module by module to have optional params to
show/hide those links/buttons, ...
(2) allow some extra step in newsletters feature , so that the html
produced from the tiki output generated by means of plugins and modules
(in that wiki page template) can be edited easily (in a similar way to
what can be achieved with the article clipping feature in newsletters:
you get some html tags and content, and you can edit it at will).
