Sends email announcements to your MT Notifications list or to an external mailing list on recent Movable Type weblog entries
Version: 1.2MTBlogMail aends email announcements to your MT Notifications list or to an external mailing list on recent Movable Type weblog entries.
Operating System: Mac OS X
MTBlogMail determines last blog entry sent and mails out excerpts of all entries created since then. Mail may be sent either to a single email address or to everyone in your Notifications list. The single address can of course can be the address of a mailing list or group. MTBlogMail sends plain text email only. A future version may send HTML email as well.
The first time MTBlogMail is run, it operates on the last 7 entries made in your blog. After the first run, it will save the ID of your last blog entry in a cache file. On subsequent runs, it will operate on however many entries have been made since the previous run. You can edit MTBlogMail.cache by hand at any time to change this value. Entry IDs can be seen in the MT back-end -- click an entry and look in the URL for something like &id=1381
Â· Your MT installation must be on MySQL and you must have PHP installed.
Â· Since this script is written in PHP but does not run through your web server, you must have the CLI (aka CGI) version of PHP installed.
Â· Bug fix: Enforced full path to conf file - otherwise cron may fail to fire job.
