After about two days trying to use Mailpoets E-Mail-Templates to send notifications from my own code (own plugin) I’m getting a little desperate…
What I want is the possibility for a user to edit certain E-Mail-Templates which will be send for a variety of events on the website. Yes, this would be transactional E-Mails but they won’t fit the default WordPress ones nor the triggers available in Mailpoet.
I actually managed to kind of abuse Mailpoets “send on list subscription” but in doing so I would need to set the recipients to “subscribed” which in turn would clash with the reason Mailpoet is installed on the site in the first place: We need Double-Opt-In for Newsletters, but messing around with the confirmation status would break that flow.
So I’m looking for
- a way to send Mailpoet E-Mail-Template without an actual subscriber (which according to an old question on their forum isn’t possible)
- another plugin to design a variety of different E-Mail which could be queried from PHP and used in whatever way.
Basically: I want to send E-Mails from my plugin, but am way to lazy to hardcode templates (aside from the inflexibility) or to code a UI for generating Templates myself.
