View Full Version : Logging emailed articles

Does the system log the info (email,comments) of article email-to's?
If not - is this do-able?

I'm not sure I understand you :confused:
Could you please explain a little bit more on what you mean?

On my old system, if someone chose "send this article as an email to a friend" and wrote a comment with it - it would store that info (emaill address of sender and recipient and comment) in a log.
I wouldn't mind reproducing that functionality in Vivvo.

Vivvo does not support this function out of the box.
This can be done as a customization.
You can customize your lib\vivvo\service\Articles.service.php starting from line 600 (email_to_a_friend function) to achieve this.

Thanks for the advice.
I made a quick mod and it works great - it simply creates a text log of "email to a friend" requests for reference.
If anyone is interested let me know and I'd be happy to post it.
cool that would be great. can you post it.

Here it is - very basic.
After this line in email_to_a_friend() in articles.service.php...
Add this code...
* Mod to log emails sent in text file
$today = date("F j Y g:i a");
$mail_log_data = $today." | ".$article_id." | ".$to." | ".$bcc." | ".$your_email." | ".$message."\n";
$fp = fopen("mail_log.txt","a"); // add file path if desired
* End Mod
This gives you a basic text file with all of the email data in mail_log.txt in whatever path is indicated - nothing fancy.
If anyone wants, they can create a database log and a nice Web interface for it - and if they do, please sent it to me!
thank you. Will put it to use soon.
