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


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.
