Description

This plugin provides a simple email form which allows the user to send email to preconfigured recipients with archiving functionality of the sent emails. Email recipients can be a list of

  • email addresses
  • registered dokuwiki users
  • the members of dokuwiki groups

This allows one to use docuwiki as a mailing list for a wiki group.

Installation

Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

Examples/Usage

The easiest use is as follows

{{groupmail>}}

by which you create an email send form on your wiki page. When send is hit, the message will be delivered to the default recipient as configured in the configuration panel, while archiving each mail in the preconfigured log file.

A more complex example

{{groupmail>touser=dokuuser|autofrom|sendlog=:groupmail:mylog}
[[:groupmail:mylog|See old messages]]

creates an email form without name and sender email input field, which are automatically populated from the user being logged in. The sent emails are then saved in :groupmail:mylog, to which a link is provided after the form.

Syntax

Basic syntax:

{{groupmail>action}}
  • action can be a | separated list of:
    • autofrom — use sender identity from current user
    • subject=… — specify the email subject
    • content=… — preinsert content in the email body
    • toemail=… — comma-separated list of recipient email addresses
    • touser=… — comma-separated list of recipient registered users of the dokuwiki
    • togroup=… — comma-separated list of dokuwiki groups

Configuration and Settings

The plugin can be configured with the following options via the configuration tool:

  • $conf['default'] = 'default@example.com'; - the default recipient of the emails.
  • $conf['sendlog'] = ':groupmail:log'; - where sent emails are archived.
  • $conf['captcha'] = 0; - turn on/off captcha
  • $conf['recaptchakey'] = '';
  • $conf['recaptchasecret'] = '';
  • $conf['recaptchalayout'] = 'red';

Tips and Tricks

In conjunction with Tabinclude Plugin and groupusers plugin one can build a nice tab'ed email widget:

{{tabinclude>:mail:send|Send Mail,:mail:log|Mail Archiv,:mail:list|Mailing List}}
