UE4.01 - mail sends, but database fields aren't shown in email

Hi

Tried preparing several pages where fields from the database are inserted into the message, for example

Hi <firstname>,

However, the emails are sent to all the recipients in the recordset loop, but none of them have the personalised information displayed.

I know this has worked previously, though I am creating new pages.

Cheers
Chris

Add this to the top of the email body template page:

<?php
global $RecipArray;
global $RecipIndex;
?>



and in the body and for the email log settings use:

<?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["[yourColumnName]"]); ?>



and you can add any references to the recordset columns used as the To loop.

Hi Jason

Could you clarify which page is which?

Let's say I have sendmessage.php as the web page
and
waue_sendmessage_1.php as the pages which contains the message.

Which bit of code goes on which page? What is the 'log' page?

Sorry for being dim!

Cheers

Chris

waue_sendmessage_1.php

in the webassist/email/waue_sendmessage_1.php file, you need to change:

php:
$MailBody = $MailBody .  $row_rsEmailRecipients['FirstName'];




to:

php:
$MailBody = $MailBody .  $RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]['FirstName']];

Hi Jason
Now the page goes blank and freezes after the 'send' button is pressed. It doesn't go to the 'thanks' page and no email is sent.

Cheers

Hi jason

Noticed that
$MailBody = $MailBody . $RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]['FirstName']];

appears to have an extra closing ], so I removed that and the email sent.

However, instead of getting the recipients name, ALL messages start

Hi r

where 'r' is in the place of the name.

HTH
Cheers
