Email, html format ?

Post by m4d » Sat Sep 02, 2006 3:12 pm

Can we send an email in html format in php-residence, with the contract feature ?
If yes, can we employ the standard HTML ?
I have tried but it doesn't work ... :oops:
Do you have a example ?

Thanks

For now you can send only plain text emails with attachments.

Hi Marco,

In 2011, I have the same question: Can we send an email in html format in php-residence, with the contract feature ?

Great Job,
Thanks

Olivier

Hello Olivier,
it's now possible with new hoteldruid versions.

Marco

Re: Email, html format ?

It's quite a while since this template was posted but I've just stumbled upon it so thought I'd better say "That's really nice." and "Thanks."

The only suggestion I would have, and this may not have been possible when the html was originally written, would be to make the following substitutions in the html to auto-populate certain fields (assuming the values have already been entered under Menu -> Configure and Customise -> Property Data)

This would mean that any changes, for example our telephone number changed recently (!) , would only need to be altered once rather than in all your document templates...

Change "Hotel Name" to [structure_name]
change "address line 1" [structure_address]
Change "address line 2" to [structure_city]
Change "Phone" to [structure_telephone]
Change "www.website.com" to [structure_website]
Change "youremail" , twice, to [structure_address]

Maybe change "€" to [currency_name]

Other fields I found to be of use were :
[structure_nation] / [structure_postal_code] / [structure_fax] / [structure_fiscal_code] / [structure_vat_number]
and [structure_logo] , which contains a URL to your logo image file

I also added "This document was created on [today] by [current_user]"


Once again, thanks for the template.
It's lovely.

Dear Megaughin,

I'm really glad you liked the template but mostly that you have found it useful.
And for this i have made a new version of documents for you to use at this link.

http://www.hoteldruid.com/forum/viewtop ... 79d9b3da2a

You are absolutely right about the fields.
I left them on purpose so can everyone understands what are they meant for and consequently use the appropriate automatic field.

Happy coding ;-)
