How to use data tags?

jma 2.4 template jma 2.4 output
  

With version 2.4 we are introducing the "data tag" support in J!MaillAlerts.

What is data tag

[jma_latest_content_k2|catid=1,2,3,4,5,6]
[jma_latest_docs_docman|category=36,37] 
[jma_latest_content_k2|catid=10,11,12,13]
[jma_latest_docs_docman|category=34,35]

As you can see in the first screenshot , there are 4 tags added to email template, and all 4 are data tags.

With data tags-

  • You can use same JMA tag more than once in the same email. In more simple words- you can use same plugin more than once for generating a single email output.
  • You can use data tag to divide a plugin output and place it into more places in a same email.
  • For example: Let's consider an example of K2 plugin. This tag [jma_latest_content_k2|catid=1,2,3,4,5,6]  will fetch latest items belonging to catid=1,2,3,4,5,6 if user has subscribed to any of these categories.

Normal tags will contine to work as like before.

Known issue-

-The plugin name will be repeated in the email number of times the plugin tag is used.

  • This is a brilliant plugin for anyone who wants to pimp up their Joomla! e-mails from the standard, boring text to have a lovely, consistent HTML template.

    The extension is extremely easy to manage, after installation it requires creating a template in a WYSYWIG editor with separate CSS editor and with a sample template already set up. Once your template is set up, just head over to your plugins and enable the Beautifier. That's all there is to it.

    Certain extensions using their own templating system (JomSocial for instance) might require a little bit of extra work to be perfect with it but it's little price to pay for the benefits of a more professional look. Especially recommended for business users.
