Add the list of recipients into the body of the email

Hi

I have a page which sends to multiple recipients from checkboxes - works very well and has done for years!

However, a common complaint from users is that they don't know who else has been sent the email; they don't want to see the list of email addresses (which would be bad practice anyway), but would like to see a list of names below the content of the message, e.g.

This message was also sent to Fred Bloggs, Joe Smith, Ann Dover
----------------------

The checkbox has the following code:

<input type="checkbox" name="toEmail[]" value="<?php echo $row_rsMembersEmail['MemEmail']; ?>" id="toEmail_<?php echo $row_rsMembersEmail['RotID']; ?>" />

The member's name is displayed next to the select box, but isn't used other than that.

Is this possible?

Many thanks
Cheers
Chris

Add a recordset to the email body page with a repeated region to display the names filtered the same way as the recordset that is used to send the emails.

Gosh - that was quick!! I was still updating the question!

Not sure I understand fully; should it be filtered by something like WHERE MemEmail = $_POST['MemEmail']

Thanks

It would probably be more like: "WHERE MemEmail IN (" . implode(",",$_POST['MemEmail']) . ")"

Hi Ray

Hmmn - not knowledgeable enough to get the correct code for the repeat region; I've had a guess and no errors are shown in the page, but no emails are sent!

Many thanks

IT seems like it would work. Maybe the recordset isn't being built properly...

Try adding this to the email body:
$MailBody = $MailBody . $query_rsMemRecips;

That will display the SELECT statement you are using to create the recordset and maybe you can spot the problem that way.

Hi Ray

No difference. however, I've added error reporting to the waue page and get the following error

Warning: require_once(../../Connections/connRoSite.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 2 Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '../../Connections/connRoSite.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear55:/usr/share/php') in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 2

which is odd, as the connection file definitely exists at that location!
-----------------
I've added an extra ../ and now the error is

Notice: Undefined index: MemEmail in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 40 Warning: implode(): Invalid arguments passed in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 40 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') AND members.SiteID = 201 ORDER BY members.Surname' at line 1

which looks like it's the actual query that wrong

Cheers

Yeah... the path is relative to the original page where the include is.

You can probably move the recordset to the page with the email server applied instead of having it on this page to resolve this problem.

Thanks Ray

I've altered the query, but it's still wrong:

mysql_select_db($database_connRoSite, $connRoSite);
$query_rsMemRecips = "SELECT CONCAT(members.FirstName, ' ', members.Surname)AS RecipName FROM members WHERE members.MemEmail IN (" . implode(",",$_POST['MemEmail']) . ") ";
$rsMemRecips = mysql_query($query_rsMemRecips, $connRoSite) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsMemRecips = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsMemRecips);
$totalRows_rsMemRecips = mysql_num_rows($rsMemRecips);

I now get this error message:

Notice: Undefined index: MemEmail in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 36 Warning: implode(): Invalid arguments passed in /home/sites/rotary-site.org/public_html/webassist/email/waue_membership_3.php on line 36 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ')' at line 1

Use:

$query_rsMemRecips = "SELECT CONCAT(members.FirstName, ' ', members.Surname)AS RecipName FROM members WHERE members.MemEmail IN (" . (isset($_POST['MemEmail'])?implode(",",$_POST['MemEmail']):"-1") . ") ";
