    Hello Franky, thanks for your very quick answer. Probably my question was not precise enough.

    I want to keep the data of events, people, groups, categories, etc. what i call “living data”. But wit the staging process i like to change configuration and settings of EME.

    Am i right if i say that all the devstage_eme_*-tabls contain this “living data” and the EME-configuration is stored in wordpress options table ?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Hi Franky, again thanks a lot for your very quick answer. I got the point – and also learned to have a look at the console in the dev-tools of FF. But i changed the the theme on my sandbox above to twentytwentyone and feel the same behavior. Also it was working 4 weeks ago with twentynineteen. I also have the same behavior with our development site, where we use the Astra theme.
    https://dev.madonnabar.de (newsletter button on the right side bar)

    Unfortunately i still have some difficulties to debug/analyze the output of the console :-/
    Could you please assist me again ?

    Cheers Chris

    Hi Franky, i solved my problem with individual newsletters per user. Now every subscriber gets a newsletter with the events of the group/category he subscribed for, sorted by time.
    I did some PHPing accessing the database and then write the result in the wp_eme_mailings table. The PHP is triggered by a cron job.

    So for now i see no obstacle using EME for my project anymore 🙂

    Cheers

    oh man, I have really to apologize ! I am so sorry that I stole your time with that …

    then it looks like my installation is somehow broken. For testing purpose i changed the firstname and surname of my user with id=1 (wordpress user).
    Then filled again the subscription form for a new subscription/new mail address … et voilá … i have new user with firstname and surname of user with id=1.
    I set me up another instance with EME and will check if it behaves the same there …

    Hi Franky, thank you for this very quick response.

    I got this … but thought i could have a selection of a single event to promote this in a slider … so i would have one slider for the next event (using free space for details), one slider for event after the next event and so on …

    unfortunately not. They all have different mail addresses. but all the same last name. Probably this is related to your last change where you made the “all” groups entry with new functionality in the subscription form ?

    Hi Franky, this is great ! You already implemented the behavior of the “all” group selection. I didn’t expect you to be so fast, man ! This feels like a great experience !

    Thanks again. I now understood that the newsletter functionality of EME defines exactly one newsletter and is not a “newsletter generator”.

    Unfortunately i need at least one newsletter per event-category where i have for each event-category a corresponding group.

    You wrote: “You can send “event related emails” to that group (where you can use event placeholders like #_PRICE, #_STARTDATE, … that are replaced by the related event info),”

    With that, can i send all events of ONE CATEGORY for a GIVEN PERIOD to ONE GROUP ? And schedule this somehow ?

    I was thinking if i can program this on my own as all info is existing in the database, but as i am not very good with is i would miss all these nice features with placeholders and so on.

    Or if i could have a function { USER, LIST_OF_CATEGORIES, STARTDATE_PERIOD, ENDDATE_PERIOD } that sends a mail to the user containing a list off all events of the requested categories, sorted by time, for the requested period.
    This would be my dream ! (if i understand how to call this function by a script or php-script scheduled by cron)

    Hi Franky, i have two more questions regarding the newsletter sending function.

    1) For testing purpose I created a newsletter sending every 5 minutes. This works good so far … but how can i stop this ? Currently it creates more and more mailing entrys (what was my original intention) and i become flooded with mails 🙂

    2) If mails are send periodically (i.e. once a week) how can i manage on what day the newsletter is sent ? If i want to send it on Monday … do i have to wait for next Monday and then create an mailing entry with „once a week“ ?

    Thanks again for your time.

    Dear Franky, i just wanted to double-checked what you were explaining … i also had a glance on the database table -> now the person shows up in the peoples table, as well in the groups table.

    I can not explain why it now works.

    If you could change the behavior of the “all”-selection that would be graet as this can be highly misleading to the subscriber.

    Thanks so far and cheers from Berlin

    Hi Franky, thanks a lot for your extensive answer. I have to apologize as my question was too generic. And I did already some right things, that you are describing, as i was reading a lot of the documentation.
    What i want to do:
    I have one location with several types of events. Therefore I mark the events with corresponding categories. This all works fine.
    I have groups with corresponding names to the event categories – the groups are marked as “email only”
    I have a page with a subscription form [eme_subform] where people can enter their mail address an can choose a category of interest. If one enters a mail address he gets a confirmation mail. If clicks on the link in the mail he is directed to a page that says his registration is complete. This works also fine.
    My problem with this:
    If a subscriber fills/sends the subscription form, he is not assigned to a group. I am also missing a list, where these subscribers appear. I would expect to find them at least in the table “people”.
    Two minor questions are:
    1) What exactly does the GDPR switch do ? Is it sending the confirmation mail ?
    2) Is is possible that a subscriber can subscribe for more than one group ?

    Thanks in advance for your time an patience.

    BR Chris
