How can I add HTML formating to 'Swift Mail tutorial' based PHP email?
I have developed a competition page for a client, and they wish for the email the customer receives be more than simply text. The tutorial I used only provided simple text, within the 'send body message'. I am required to add html to introduce images to this email.
The code is:
This function.php sheet is working and the customer is recieving their email ok, I just need to change the
//send the welcome letter
//format each email
$body = format_email($info,'html');
$body_plain_txt = format_email($info,'txt');
//setup the mailer
$transport = Swift_MailTransport::newInstance();
$mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);
$message = Swift_Message::newInstance();
$message ->setSubject('Thanks for entering the competition');
$message ->setFrom(array('firstname.lastname@example.org' => 'FromEmailExample'));
$message ->setTo(array($info['email'] => $info['name']));
$message ->setBody('Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.');
$result = $mailer->send($message);
Please, if you can, provide me with an example of how I can integrate HTML into this function.
('Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.')
to have HTML instead...
Cheers in advance. :-)
try like this, for example if you want it into bold style
$message ->setBody('<b>Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.</b>')
Thanks, but that didn't work
thanks for getting back to me, I have already tried this, and basically the email I recieve then shows me the tags, instead of using the tags to style the text??
ok, i am not observe it. I try and give reply tommorow
You need to find where it sets the emails mime type and set it to "text/html".
Thre is a good tutorial with example PHP scripts on how to send emails with:
1) plain text
2) HTML emails
3) emails with attachments
When sending HTML emails, you should also send a plain text version in the same email for those email clients that either do not support html emails or have it turned off.
Imo, you should also have a link in your email to a web version of the html email. The amount of support for html formating in email clients varies widely.
