One by one

This allow you to insert one WordPress post, Wordpress page or Joomla! article in your email

  • Content to insert: select the post/page/article you want to insert. You can filter them on their title. You can also filter posts and articles on their category.

  • Display: you can choose which parts of the content to insert in the newsletter.

  • Format: AcyMailing offers multiple default formats, for example the title, then the main picture and the description around it. Choose which one you prefer, or create your own one in the add-on's settings (it will require basic HTML knowledge).

  • Pictures: When resizing pictures, AcyMailing applies a maximum size, tiny images won't be enlarged.

  • Clickable title: you can choose to add a link to the real content on its title. It will also add the link on the main picture if there is one.

  • Truncate the text: you can choose to limit the number of characters from the article that will be displayed.

  • Custom view: This is for advanced users only, if you don't have basic knowledge in HTML we don't recommend you to use it. With this option you can fully customise the way the article looks in your emails. Note that by doing so, you completely replace the default layout and thus, previous options won't be taken into account.

By category

Only available for WordPress posts and Joomla! articles.

  • First options: see the "One by one" tab.

  • Format => Alternate: If you activate this option, each inserted article will be mirrored with the previous one for the main picture position. Formats with a picture taking the entire width are not affected.

  • First options: see the "One by one" tab.

  • Order by: By default, articles are sorted by ID descending to show the most recent ones first.

  • Group by category (not available for pages): Especially useful when inserting the last 3 articles in an automatic campaign. If the last 3 articles are in the categories A, B and A, instead of inserting your articles like this:

    • article 1

    • article 2

    • article 3

    It will insert them like this:

    • category A

      • article 1

      • article 3

      category B

      • article 2

  • Columns: You can insert for example 2 articles per row in your email.

  • Column horizontal padding: Allows you to adjust the horizontal padding between 2 columns

  • Column vertical padding: Allows you to adjust the vertical padding between 2 columns

  • Max. number of elements: This is the maximum number of articles inserted in your email.

These options are only visible when editing an automatic campaign.

  • Only newly created: This option makes sure that the same article isn't sent twice to your receivers. If there are only two new articles since the last email was sent, only those two will be inserted in the next email.

  • Min. number of elements: This option is really special, if no new article has been published on your site, no email will be sent and AcyMailing will wait for the next generation attempt (instead of sending an empty email to your users).
