[EP-tech] Adding a pin to a subject line using User->Mail

Hi John!

Thanks – that puts in the value BUT then complains that the phrase is undefined – the difference between USER::Mail and send_mail being, as far as I can see, that user->mail expects ONLY a reference to a phrase in the subject, whereas send_mail expects a UTF8 string

So, the subject when it arrives now looks like this:
[" [Action Required] New thesis upload by your supervisee (Ref 3000014) "   not defined]

Which, as far as I can understand, is a complaint that the phrase defined by the string above doesn’t exist . . .

I’ve updated the code in line with your suggestions otherwise . . .

The complaint in the log would back this up
[uolrepo] Undefined phrase:  [Action Required] New thesis upload by your supervisee (Ref 3000014)  (en) at line 124 in (eval 4489)

Or have I missed something?

Adam

Hi Adam,
You can use a phrase with pins – but need to make sure you’re using a chunk of text rather than an XML fragment (possibly using the ‘phrase’ rather than ‘html_phrase’)

$user->mail(
    $session->phrase(
        “phrase_with_eprintid_pin_in_it”,
        eprintid => $eprintid,
    ),
)

If you want to use other data, that’s already rendered you might need to ‘flatten’ it to use it:

$user->mail(
    $session->phrase(
        “phrase_with_users_name_pin_in_it”,
        users_name => EPrints::Utils::tree_to_utf8( $users_name ),
    ),
),

Cheers,
John

Subject: [EP-tech] Adding a pin to a subject line using User->Mail

Hey all!

I’m trying to send an email notification about an item using the user->mail method

This uses a phrase as the subject HOWEVER I’d really like to set the eprintid and I can’t figure out a way to define it, as the method seems only to allow the phrase as part of the call

So – at the moment it looks like:
 my $result = $user->mail( "eprint_thesis_notify_mail_subject", $mail );
