I am trying to implement a system where a user makes a blog post (to a set category) and as part of that sequence, or in addition to, it does the following:

  1. Create a new email based on a template
  2. Populate the email with a snippet, or the excerpt text
  3. Send to a predefined list

To labour the point; it isn't to email everyone, just the people in the aforementioned list.

Does anybody know of a plugin or email system to do this?

We currently use aweber but I cannot find the functionality to dynamically insert content from the post. It seems to only be able to do send a "Blog Updated, go here to enjoy it's awesomeness" type deal.

EDIT: Had a look at Subscribe2 as detailed here to no avail.

There is a list of possible plugins here http://wppluginmarket.com/22984/email-mailing-list-plugins/.

I responded to your other post too.

You don't say whether your 'list' is something you control, or whether users can subscribe to it.

I don't know mailpress well, in S2 one can manually add subscribers to the list (and not show the s2 subscribe widget for example)

  • We currently have a list in Campaign Monitor that we will import when needed. We intend on having a few checkboxes in the members area where they can choose to either subscribe or not subscribe to the email, ideally this will be included but I am almost certain I will need to code that.

You could use MailChimp's RSS-to-email feature described here, they also have a free plan for up to 2000 subscribers and 12k emails per month.

I'm not sure if that's what you are looking for, but FeedBurner allows people to subscribe to your blog and receive emails each time you update your RSS, for free.
