I'm overall quite impressed with Exchange and the Membership addon, but I have a key feature I need, and I want to see if your plugin will handle it. I am planning to drip content on a weekly basis, and I want to send email notifications on a weekly basis informing the subscribed user that their new content is available, possibly with a short preview of it. How would you go about this with the membership addon? My ideal scenario is where a user is subscribed to an email list in aweber (or similar) that will then send weekly emails, but I'm also open to suggestions.

Thanks!

Hi Julian,

This isn't an option in Exchange or the Membership add-on at this time.  We do, however, have a number of add-ons for email clients, including AWeber.   The customers would need to sign up for the email when they register for the site or you would need to manually add them to your email list.  But you should be able to use this to meet your need.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise

Thanks Elise, is there an exchange API or room for extending the membership plugin where I could implement this myself, with knowledge of PHP and, say, the aWeber API?

Hi Julian,

You are welcome to edit Exchange and the Membership however you'd like to fit your needs, if you feel comfortable doing so of course.  You can find all the Exchange functions here:  http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Category:Exchange/Functions

Thanks,

Elise
