Help with Curl to send emails

Help with Curl to send emails

Hi Ray - this is something you helped out with before, but am just trying to replicate something similar in a different scenario. Probably a slightly more straightforward scenarios, as its based on a single insert rather than multiple insert.

Basically have a page where a user can add a news story into a table (product_updates), which should trigger an email to users that are connected to the lodge that the news item is about.

So the product_updates table stores the LodgeID, which should also go into the array, and the SQL uses that to return the users that are connected to that lodge via the table product_likes.

I think it must be mostly there, but I have missed something somewhere, as it doesn't seen to be sending emails. If you could have a look at the attached files, that would be much appreciated. Also would be happy to take this to a premium ticket as I know its a bit beyond the WA functionality.

The files attached are the page for adding the news item (index111.php) as well as the associated files.

EDIT: Hi Ray - I think its to do with the fact that the original was based on a multiple insert, whereas this one is just a single insert. But I'm nit sure what the syntax should be in the code for the CURL stuff. It may not even need the array if its a single insert, but just have the SQL part?

Please sign up for a premier ticket. I'm not sure if you need curl at all. I'd like to go over it with you and we can figure out the best solution that way.

Thanks Ray. I'll be around until around 11am your time tomorrow if you have time early on. I might be around again for a bit later on, not sure yet. Send me a message on Skype and hopefully we'll both be around at some point.

Hi Ray - I have just messaged you on Skype. I was running late so would be a bit rushed to look at it now. And I am travelling home over the next couple of days. If you were able to have a look at it without me over the next few days that would be much appreciated. If not, no worries. All the info is on Skype. Thank you.

Hi Ray - posted on Skype, but something isn't right still I don't think. When we looked at this before, it was working with the PEAR_Mail_using_SMTP.php. I have attached the index, send_email and waue_index_agent_connect.php pages from our other website from which its all working. Attachment is the wa_curl_multiple_insert_working.zip.

And these are the files you've been looking at. send_email_news_ray.php is the version I just downloaded, but I may have uploaded an incorrect version before as there is a reference to PartnerIDPL in the array. Send_email_news.php is the version with the LodgeID in the array, which I thought was all that is needed here?

And the SQL:

$query_EmailList = "SELECT DISTINCT Email, Firstname, Username, Password
FROM trade_users
INNER JOIN product_likes ON trade_users.UserID = product_likes.UserIDPL
INNER JOIN lodges ON lodges.LodgeID = product_likes.LodgeIDPL
";
$query_EmailList .= " WHERE subscription = 'Gold' AND LodgeID IN (".implode(", ",$WA_lodgeArray).")";

So the news item is added for that LodgeID, the LodgeID is stored it the array. And then the SQL sends an email to every user which is connected to that lodge via the product_likes table.

Were you able to see any emails sending?
