Dynamic Email Subject Line

#1 Postby iamheaddown » Apr 23, 2007 3:43 pm

I am using XUpload Pro version 2.2 and would like to know how I can insert a variable from my upload form into the subject line of the confirmation email??

I have added a 'company' input into the upload form. I would like the subject line of the confirmation email to dynamically insert the company name from the 'company' input from my upload form like below:

Subject: File Uploaded: GE Electric

The XUploadConfig.pm file has the following code for the subject line:

Code: Select all

 # Subject for email notification
 email_subject      => "File Uploaded",


Please let me know what code will accomplish my request. Thanks.

:D

It's easy. In upload.cgi replace this line of code

Code: Select all

&SendMail( $c->{confirm_email}, $c->{confirm_email_from}, $subject, $tmpl->output() );


with

Code: Select all

&SendMail( $c->{confirm_email}.$cg->param('company'), $c->{confirm_email_from}, $subject, $tmpl->output() );


and set 'email_subject' option in config to "File Uploaded: ",

Problems now.

I changed the line as you suggested and now XUpload does not work. Any thoughts, I noticed the upload.cgi rights had changed to Apache{48} vs. root{0}.

I changed the rights back to root(0) and still no luck. Stuck.

:?

SOLVED.

My bad,

Very important step, make sure all windows line breaks are removed in your .cgi files before you upload them to your server.

For people who want to remove the new line breaks, here is a link in one of the sticky posts from this forum.

Thanks.

Follow-up

OK. Now that I have the errors cleaned up, I have made the code changes that Pilgrim suggested. If I enter a company name in the input box, no email is sent. If I leave the company name input box empty, an email is sent.

Any ideas??

Oh, sorry! Now my bad :) Added company field to wrong variable.

Here's correct code:

Code: Select all

&SendMail( $c->{confirm_email}, $c->{confirm_email_from}, $subject.$cg->param('company'), $tmpl->output() );


Return to “XUpload”
