Sends mails with update information to your site or group members based on default or personal intervals (monthly, fortnightly, weekly or daily)
- site wide digest
- group digest

- sent digest can also be viewed online (not only in mail)
- extend/replace layout or content of digests with own views
- exclude groups from delivery with a hook
If you wish to supply content for either the Site digest of Group digest you can easily extend the digest.
For the Site digest
Please extend the view "digest/elements/site" with the content from your plugin and extend the view "css/digest/site" with the CSS that's part of this content.
You can find out which variables your have available in your view by checking the view "digest/elements/site".
We suggest you put your content in "digest/elements/site/" and the CSS in "css/digest/site/". This is just a suggestion, but it would make it easier for theme developers.
For the Group digest
Please extend the view "digest/elements/group" with the content from your plugin and extend the view "css/digest/group" with the CSS that's part of this content.
You can find out which variables your have available in your view by checking the view "digest/elements/group".
We suggest you put your content in "digest/elements/group/" and the CSS in "css/digest/group/". This is just a suggestion, but it would make it easier for theme developers.
If you want to adjust the Digest to look like your theme, please check to following elements
The base layout of the digest can be found in the view "page/layouts/digest". The CSS that's part of the base layout can be found in the view "css/digest/core".
The base layout consists of a few default elements
In the view "digest/elements/header" this contains the title of the current digest.
In the view "digest/elements/online" this contains a link to the online view of the digest. In case the digest can't be viewed correctly in the e-mail client.
The content of the digest will be made using the view view "digest/elements/site" for the Site digest or "digest/elements/group" for the Group digest.
Both view are just empty wrapper view, all plugins are required to extend to these views in order to display content.
In the view "digest/elements/footer" this contains a description of either the Site or the Group, depending on the digest.
In the view "digest/elements/unsubscribe" this contains some information about where the digest came from, how the user can change the settings of the digest and a direct link to unsubscribe from the digest.
