remove [Short Name] out of email subject

Post by kadeepro » Wed Mar 06, 2024 3:37 pm

how do I get the short name out of my email subject?

From Appearance/ custom mass mail layout/ Mailinglist message. I removed <!-- tmpl_var list_settings.list_name --> from Subject line.
So it should not be putting the [Short Name] in the subject line when sending my emails, but it still is putting the [Short Name] in emails.

Where else would I need to edit settings or code to remove the short name from my email subject?

That would only impact things if you're using the Custom Mass Mailing Layout.

One way to do what you want to do is change the subject in the theme itself. Background:

https://dadamailproject.com/d/features- ... s.pod.html

So the file you're probably looking for is,

mailing_list_message.txt

You'll see the line,

Code: Select all

subject: <!-- tmpl_var list_settings.list_name --> Message
That's what you would want to edit.

I cloned the default template and renamed it to another name.
I edited mailing_list_message.txt

and all other layouts, including mailing_list_message-old_school.txt

changing

subject: <!-- tmpl_var list_settings.list_name --> Message

to

subject: Message

I set the Email theme to the new theme name and sent a test message using layout "custom" and "old school." Both test emails came back with the [Short Name] still in the subject. There must be another location that defines <!-- tmpl_var list_settings.list_name --> [Short Name] in the subject line of the emails.

I also edited the default template and tried the default default template with the same results.

I'm still getting [Short Name] in the subject of emails.

I just tested this, and seems to work as I described.

Are you using Bridge to send out messages? If so, it's an option within the plugin labeled,

[x] Prefix message subjects with the:

(and then allows you to select a few choices)
