Well, I haven’t written for a long time, quite lazy recently :-D . Today, I’m back with a simple thing, as it’s showing in the title: “How to send Magento newsletter”.
It’s really easy, I have to say that ;) . First of all, I want to show you how to configure newsletter in admin.
Go to System => Configuration and open Newsletter menu on the left.

In this configuration, you can setup:
- Unsubscription Email Sender: sender (name, email) when you send unsubscription email to customer
- Unsubscription Email Template: email template when you send unsubscription email.

magento extensions

Hi everyone. I wrote this little plugin while working on one of our projects. If you know your way around WordPress then you know what $wpdb variable stands for. Imagine the following scenario. You have WordPress installation on one database, Magento on another. You know your way around SQL. You can always make new object based on WPDB class inside your template files giving it database access parameters, or you can use this plugin and use $MAGEDB the same way you use $wpdb.

Below is a little example of using $MAGEDB to connect to Magento database and retrieve some products by reading id’s from custom field of some post inside your WordPress.

Place this code inside one of your templates, like single.php.
