@michael-e Yes, it's still a matter of juggling with tables. I am using the official MJML App along with looking into the mjml language docs to create a mjml template of my own and generating the html from it. This is very convenient to do I would say. Then comes the tricky part, where my thug life ends, but I dig xslt so no problems there - to mariage the html with ETM's xslt email template, because there are quite a few condition statements in that html generated from mjml. But in the mean time I have those statements paired with corresponding xslt code that generates the same html output. I could share those snippets if you like. Finally, if I take some content from Symphony for the email content (usually a html - I use CKEditor for creating richtext content in Symphony; I know you guys prefer Markdown I think), I chew it with a xslt template to get a html that would mjml generate (and plain text alike for the plain text mail version). I can share that template too. Speaking of developing mjml, there are also other ways besides using the App, as mentioned in the docs, for example using nodejs/gulp (I am using nodejs, gulp, webpack etc. in every project for building my frontend assets), but I use the App for now, as I don't develop emails so often.
Thanks for sharing your workflow, I was simply curious. At the moment I won't change anything in my email stuff, so there's no need to see your templates; but thank you anyway!
You're welcome! Basically I switched from writting my own email template stuff from the scratch and testing it through Litmus or Email on Acid, to using a this-works-everywhere solution, which I hope MJML is. Anyways it's a MailJet project. But recently I've learned it still pays off to have a peak on final email template in various email clients.
I just installed Symphony and don't get an admin interface just a directory listing
Do you get the website?
Whats in your htaccess?
Maybe rewrite mod?
Hi guys, I have a site that I'm optimizing for SEO built with symphony and I am unable to give a different title tag to each page they seem to be connected somehow. If anyone knows of an extension or has a useful resource I would appreciate it. Thanks
@RonVargas01 Hi! You can try to change the page name in the CMS. If you want the title to be edited in the content, you need a simple field for that
@RonVargas01 it depends how it was set up. There’s a good chance that you have no SEO Fields created/set-up
Assuming you want to do Meta and all you may need a developer to have a look and make the necessary tweaks so you could do all you need from the CMS
Ok thanks guys, I'm unable to get in touch with the dev so that might take a while. Does anyone have any resources or articles that would help to set up those SEO feilds, I normally work with Wordpress and magento and I've been looking but there don't seem to be many resources other than the main site.
@RonVargas01 no there aren’t much; usually depending on the structure you would create fields within an existing data section OR a separate section where the SEO fields go in. I’ve seen both approaches used. Unfortunately I don’t have it well documented from my end.
If the Dev is completely unavailable ping us back - maybe someone can help you get it set up if you have the right access.
@jonmifsud Thanks for you help. I'll try to contact the dev again and hopefully get that set up.
Hi I am back with the same issue as yesterday I was unable to get in touch with the dev and I am unable to give a different title tags and meta descriptions to each page and I am also unable to get a text module to appear on site I see this error every time
Are you uploading files to the site via FTP?
@RonVargas01 that's a server configuration issue
Ok thanks I work for an seo agency and we have never worked with this system if there is someone who would be able to make these changes or show us how to please contact me so we can further discuss
Hello Ronald, please ping me via direct
May Kittens Devour Your Soul
is it ok if I axolotl questions?
yes this is what the channel is for !
I get this error trying to run a Symphony 2.6.3 site on PHP 5.6 / MySQL 5.7
Thanks @jonmifsud what exactly does that mean? Malformed data in the database?
& to & somewhere or something similar not sure if you may need an update of symphony. If you debug the page (assuming you can login to backend you may pick it up
Hello all, I'm using the Association field to store data on a member, but when I update the value using an event it removes all items except the new one. The field name is set up like fields[handle]which should allow for multiple values, but it's still stripping out existing ones. Does the Association Field need to be treated differently? I thought it was a multi selectbox behind the scenes.
@pixelninja When you update the value you should send all existing values also..
Greetings everyone! I updated a multilingual page (the relevant extensions: “Field: Multilingual Text Box”, “FLang detection gTLDs”, “Frontend Localisation”, “Languages”, “Page Lhandles”; Symphony and all extensions up-to-date) with Arabic (till then only left-to-right languages: German, French, Spanish, and English). This lead to an Symphony Fatal Database Error after filling the Arabic part of the text box and trying to save: “Data too long for column 'handle-ar' at row 1”. Going back and only keeping a few Arabic words within the field however worked out: saved successfuly. Guessing it may be due to the particular charset range I then tested with the full text from the German tab which interestingly enough also lead to the same Fatal Database Error. Only keeping a few German words in the Arabic field worked again. Anyone encountered such a behaviour before?
@Lindworthy Do you have the latest version of all extensions you are using?
