J!MailAlerts 2.4 is now available & comes with a host of bug fixes & addition of 2 Major features.With this version we add the ability to pass data to the plugin tags & use the tags multiple times in the JMA template. For instance, you can now use the JMA latest news tags like [jma_latestnews_js|secid=1|catid=1,3,32] & pass it the parameters that are normally stored in the plugin params ( just like you would with Joomla content plugins) . This adds a mightly lot of flexibility to JMA plugins. Please read the documentation in this relation.
The second Big feature is the ability to send insert Ads ( using our SocialAds extension) in JMA Mails. So now your advertisements can reach your users via email even if they havent visited your site in a while. You can configure the SocialAds JMA plugin to show ads from specific zones in positions you can set in your template using tags. Special care has been taken that an user will never be sent an email only containing Ads. The SA plugin shall only be triggered if there is any other content to send. More details about this will follow in the SocialAds release in a couple of days. The plugin will be part of the SocialAds package.
Another small feature is the addition of a CSS Editor in the JMA template editor. This will make it dead easy to change your JMA template. Just paste the html part of the template in the normal editor & paste the CSS in the CSS window. Besides these there are tons of other fixes & small features. Plus there is Jooma 1.7 Support !
