Hello guys,

In my JFU configuration the upload is done only by a publisher via the frontend. The publisher sees an upload folder that contains subfolders for each user (labeled with the username). I would like to amend the plugin so that if a new set of files was uploaded by the publisher the correspondent user gets an email notification.

I amended the send_email function of the plugin and handed over the additional variable $folder. Then I'm making sure it contains only the actual foldername (without slashes or parent folders). With that string I have the actual username and I'm fetching the JUser object and get the email addresse from it. Then I overwrite the $mail_to variable with this addresse.

I spent half the day to get this working but without success. It's not working. Anyone got an idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Code:
function send_email($mail_from, $mail_to, $subject, $mailtext, $type, $fix_utf8, $folder) {
      while (strpos($folder, '/') != false) { // remove parent folders and slashes
         $pos = strpos($folder, "/");
         $string = substr($folder, $pos+1);
      }
      $user =& JFactory::getUser( $folder );// get the user object that is the owner of the folder (username=foldername)
      $mail_to = $user->email ; //set mail_to to the users email addresse
      $submailheaders = "From: $mail_from\n";
        $submailheaders .= "Reply-To: $mail_from\n";
        $submailheaders .= "Return-Path: $mail_from\n";
        if ($fix_utf8 != '') {
          $submailheaders .= 'Content-Type: '.$type.'; charset=' . $fix_utf8 . "\n";
        } else {
          $submailheaders .= 'Content-Type: '.$type.'; charset=UTF-8' . "\n";
        }
        if ($type=="text/plain") {
          @mail ($mail_to, html_entity_decode ($subject), html_entity_decode ($mailtext), $submailheaders);
        } else {
          $submailheaders .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
          @mail ($mail_to, html_entity_decode ($subject), $mailtext, $submailheaders);
        }
}


Thanks for your feedback
Sebastian

Do you get an e-mail?

I started doing this a while ago but have not had to thime to finish this. But I don't use the simple directory name as e-mail but checking the configuration which profile would match and extract it the other way.

I only have a skeleton with documentation what has to be done. So If you need a custome solution I could continue with this. Of you can try to finish this...

Best, Michael

I'm not receiving an email. With these changes to the function the JFU window (server + upload queue) remains empty after the upload has successfully been made.

I have the impression that I'm killing the publishers session with the query for the "folder's" email addresse?

You are not in the Joomla context! This plugin is a plugin of the flash. Not of Joomla. therefore you would have to use sql to get the data.

Thanks for the hint! Got it working now:
Code:
function get_user_email($folder) {
   while (strpos($folder, '/') != false) {
      $pos = strpos($folder, "/");
      $folder = substr($folder, $pos+1);
   }
   mysql_connect("localhost", "DBUSER", "DBUSERPASSWORD") or die(mysql_error());
   mysql_select_db("DATABASE") or die(mysql_error());
   $results = mysql_query("SELECT email FROM jos_users WHERE username ='$folder'") or die(mysql_error());
   $row = mysql_fetch_array( $results );
   $email =$row[email];
   return $email;
}

I just use this when I need the active users email:

$formuser=JFactory::getUser();
return $formuser->email;
