I found this script by Raven but no readme to go with it. I've had it saved on my computer for sometime. I think it notifies newsletter subscribers each time a new story is posted. Unfortunately, I don't know how where to place it or how to activate it. Here it is:

/* 'While' loop code for sending email copied from newsletter module */

/* other sites where people aren't in the habit of checking the site on a */
/* daily basis and would therefore appreciate an email telling them that the */
/* site has been updated with new news. */
/* Warranty: None - use at your own risk Laughing (Tested on Nuke 6.5 and 6.9 only) */
/* */
/* Thanks to Raven and to Nukecops for helping out with this */
/******************************************************************************************/

/* Change the values of the following variables to reflect what you want in the email */

/* Don't change the emailMsgPreTxt2 variable unless you DO NOT want the title of the */
/* newly posted article included in the email */

$emailFromTitle = 'Your site Updates'; //Message displayed in the 'From' field
$emailSubject = 'Your site Has Been Updated!'; //Subject displayed in the email
$emailMsgPreTxt = ''.$author.' has posted a news article entitled:'; //First paragraph of email-who submitted the news item
$emailMsgPreTxt2 = $subject; //Title of the submitted news item that was just posted
$emailMsgPreTxt3 = 'on Your Site.com.'; //Last line of the email message
$viewTheArticle = "---------\n\nView the Article:"; //Link to the news module of the website (not to a specific article)

/* Change the next 5 lines only if you want to change the email format */

global $user_prefix, $sitename, $dbi, $nukeurl, $adminmail;
$msg = "\n\n$emailMsgPreTxt\n\n$emailMsgPreTxt2\n\n$emailMsgPreTxt3";
$msg .= "\n\n$viewTheArticle\n$nukeurl/modules.php?name=News";
$headers = "From: $emailFromTitle <$adminmail>\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: $adminmail\n";

/* You should not need to change any of the following lines */

$result = sql_query("select user_email from ".$user_prefix."_users where newsletter='1'", $dbi);
while(list($user_email) = sql_fetch_row($result, $dbi)) {
mail($user_email, $emailSubject, $msg, $headers);
}

?>


All responses appreciated! I intend to use this with nuke 7.6. Would it work?

That's not my script but appears to be based on a script I wrote. I'd try contacting the author.

I 'wrote' this hack and have been using it on 6.5. I installed it on a friend's 6.9 site and it seemed to work fine. The only difference was the line number of where to call the hack. I've never upgraded beyone 6.5, so I don't know for sure if it will work on 7.0+, but I'll be interested to hear if it does.

I'm sorry you didn't get the install file. PM me an email address and I'll send it to you.
