{title}If you weren’t already familiar with it, Joomla is a crazy popular open source content management system that makes it easy to build pretty darn sophisticated web sites.

Our friends at freakedout.de have just released an amazing new component called Joomailer that seamlessly integrates Joomla with Campaign Monitor. If you’re a Joomla user, this is something you don’t want to miss.

While it’s still in beta with lots of great features planned, the component already supports the following:

* Subscriber management – easily add, update and delete your subscribers from within Joomla.
* List creation – Create new subscriber lists, manage existing lists all without logging into Campaign Monitor.
* List synchronization – Sync subscribers across both applications, automatically flags any subscribers that have unsubscribed.
* Report access – Easy access to your campaign reports and the rest of the Campaign Monitor interface via a lightbox in Joomla.
* Community Builder – The component works with the Joomla! core user manager, Community Builder and some ACL tools.

The component is especially handy if you’re using it as a CMS for your clients. Now they can maintain their web site and subscriber lists all from a single application.

The Joomailer component costs €30,00, which includes the current version of the component, free upgrades throughout the beta phase and 3 months support. Head over to the Joomailer site to check it out.

    Thanks for the blog post Dave, I just wanted to add a tiny detail. You can’t quite “update” individual users yet. At the moment you can sort your site users by group, select a set and add them to a list, but you would have to access your account via the lightbox to modify individual users. We didn’t consider this as critical, since the suppressed users get automatically removed from the campaign monitor list. We have this on our todo for 0.5. We plan on releasing 0.4 by the end of this week. The main feature for this is going to be the “recent campaigns” page, which displays (you guessed it) your recent campaigns and its stats, very practical to allow your clients to compare the performances of their campaigns from the comfort of their site. Stay tuned for more. :) Thanks again to all those already supporting us this quickly on this project.

    That will be really interesting only when joomla articles will be loaded in 1 click in the CM newsletter template, making the production/update of the newsletter quasi instanteneous…

    User & Lists are not enough to me.

    Hi Franck,

    you are exactly the kind of user we are looking for to support us and suggest your needs to us. We are open for any kind of discussion. Unfortunately, the CM API doesn’t allow the selection of a CM template into which contents from the site could be filled. We are also aware that this is the greatest challange for this project due to the API limitations and that is why we also need some support. We felt that the seamless synchronization of thousands of users without server timeouts etc was a pretty good time-saving feature to go ahead and release.
    In the most recent internal test-version, we have managed to send a newsletter composed from the backend, which takes the site’s layout for the newsletter layout. Including module positions and working menus. As long as javascript is off. Retrieving the right content from the database by selecting some checkboxes from the backend is the easy part. :) Getting all this to pass to Campaign Monitor right, for all different kind of setups and it to look right when it arrives in different mail programs is a whole different challange. And like any project without funding… well you know. With this in mind, please take the time to consider our offer @ Joomailer.
