The MassMessageEmail extension allows sending email messages to a list of users. It can also email wiki pages to users by transcluding them within the message. It requires the MassMessage extension. For usage instructions, follow the instructions on that extension's page. If there is a User page in the MassMessage delivery list, instead of posting to the user's talk page, if the wiki can email that user then it will.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MassMessageEmail in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MassMessageEmail' );
    
  • Install the hook, as below.
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.25 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.25 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'MassMessageEmail' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/MassMessageEmail/MassMessageEmail.php";

Hook installation[edit]

In order for this extension to work, you must modify the source code of your MassMessage extension as follows.

In the file extensions/MassMessage/includes/job/MassMessageJob.php, find these lines (around line number 180):

		// If the page is using a different discussion system, handle it specially
		if ( class_exists( 'LqtDispatch' ) && LqtDispatch::isLqtPage( $title ) ) {

... and change to:

		// If the page is using a different discussion system, handle it specially
		if ( !Hooks::run( 'MassMessageJobBeforeMessageSent', array( $this ) ) ) {
			return true;
		} elseif ( class_exists( 'LqtDispatch' ) && LqtDispatch::isLqtPage( $title ) ) {

Enabling parsed HTML email[edit]

To have the wiki parse the message being sent as HTML, you'll need to:

  1. Set $wgAllowHTMLEmail to true.
  2. Install Mail_Mime.
