Documentation difference - Universal Email Tutorial

Hi there,

Just going through one of your turtorials to refresh my memory on a Universal Email function and noticed that in this part of the "Customize form elements in your form-generated emails" Tutorial it states that the emails to edit should be found in the /webassist/emails/templates directory. They are all lumped in /webassist/emails/ directory.

Either the tutorial is incorrect, or the extension is not dropping the files in the correct directory (more likely.)

Also, where are all of the link and formatting when you create a thread in this new forum? They don't seem to be possible and you have to go back and update your original post after posting. ;)

Are you selecting the option to have a template file created for the email and selecting one of the pre built templates?

When you select the Create a File to manage the email option, and select the template to use, 2 files are created
1) Webassist/email/waue_<pagename>_<instanceNumber>.php <- Contains the settings for the email
2) Webassist/email/<templateDesign>_<integer>.php <- Contains the mail body, and includes code to automatically loop through the form elements on the page

if you don't check that option and Use the DW edit Button to create the email message, then only one file is created:
Webassist/email/waue_<pagename>_<instanceNumber>.php <- Contains the settings for the email, and the email body.

the tutorial you link to uses the case where the option to create the file for the email is checked.

I will let ray know the RTF option is missing from the new thread page.

Actually, these emails are all created via the DataAssist:Create Ages Wizzard. I check off "Send an email when this page is submitted" on the update or insert pages.

I do not recall if I left "Body" blank or chose a default on the "Server Settings" tab, but I believe that I had to chose one of those options (I think I used "Default" actually...)

Either way, I don't see a "webassist/email/templates/" folder in either of your examples above.. everything simply goes into the "webassist/email/" folder... so either the wizzard is not creating a "template" folder, or the tutorial is wrong or out of date. ;)

Send a copy of the insert and update pages please, and the webassist/email folder so i can take a look, you can mark the attachments as private.

I just tested on my Win7/CS5.5 installation, On the server functions tab, selected the default template and the webassist/email/templates files where created for me. perhaps if i can look at your ages, I can see what may be causing the issue.
