How does it work ?

PloneNewsLetter gives you the possibility to create your custom newsletters. The newsletter is prepared for being sent using your favourite mass mailer, and can be directly published on your site.

The process of creating your PloneNewsLetter is as follows:
  • You create a new PloneNewsLetter
  • Using PloneNewsLetter, you search your Plone site for content
  • You select the documents that you want to make it into the newsletter
  • You can click on the "create" button, and an html and text version of the newsletter are created.
  • The html and text versions can now be edited and viewed quickly in a preview window.
  • Once you are satisfied with the result, you can send the newsletter to your email address.
  • You can use your favourite mass mailer to distribute the newsletter



    • The templates used for production of the newsletter are fully customizable.
    • The selection of objects for the newsletter is remembered, so you don't have to reselect everything just because you changed the templates.
    • If the user publishes the newsletter's content, all users will see the HTML version of the newsletter. That way the the newsletter is automatically archived online.

    • A content type, for users
    • A Portal Tool, for settings
