Check the first message, which links to a URL identified by its title (Introducing The Paracast+).

It converted the URL: https://www.theparacast.com/plus/

Justin, I’d like to see that feature, and also one that automatically converts a URL to a site’s title.

Example?

I'm considering adding a feature in Dada Mail, where all outgoing links (or only ones you care about per domain...) are automatically (and hopefully intelligently) appended with UTM query string parameters, so that you can integrate email messages you send out with Dada Mail with Google Site Analytics. Basically it'll allow you to understand if people are coming to your site via the mass mailings you send out in Google Analytics.

I'm sure people do this now, but it's a manual process. This would make it as easy as it can be - and of course, something that's optional.

For this type of feature, is there anything that is a must-have? I'd like to release something useful within the next few weeks, then build upon the feature in the future. Getting something that useful out asap is my first concern, but if it's not useful, then why bother?

  • This mailing list is a public mailing list - anyone may join or leave, at any time.
  • This mailing list is a group discussion list (unmoderated)
  • Start a new thread, email: dadadev@dadamailproject.com

This mailing list is to discuss the nerdy programming development of Dada Mail -

If you are just looking for support Dada Mail, consult the message boards at:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/boards

To post to this list, send a message to:

dadadev@dadamailproject.com

All subscribers of this list may post to the list itself.

Some on topic... topics include:

  • Positive Crits on the program (I like, "x", but, "y" needs some work - here's an idea on how to make this better...)
  • Bug/Error reports
  • Bug fixes
  • Request For Comments on any changes to the program
  • Help customizing Dada Mail for your own internal needs
  • Patches
  • Language Translations
  • Support Documentation/Doc editing, FAQ's, etc.
  • Discussion of any changes that you would like to be committed to the next version of Dada Mail -

At the moment, there aren't many people with CVS access for Dada Mail - if you would like CVS access, please first talk about the changes you propose and how it will affect the program. If the idea is sound and agreed upon, the change will be comitted. A good track record of this will allow you to have CVS access. Some reasons that patches will not be accepted is if the patch breaks compatibility with a previous version of the program, the patch is too centric to your own problem or the patch simply isn't very good.

Please, please please familiarize yourself with the documentation at:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation/

Since no one wants to answer the same question twice.

Another sneaky reason for this mailing list is to test out the discussion list capabilities of Dada Mail, since Dada Mail is used for the mailing list itself.

NOTE - because of this, there may be times that this list will be somewhat broken. Although we're not planning on breaking the program by using it, we're giving you the heads up that this may well happen anyways.
