To include a widget in an email template use the shortcode [widget=Name of Widget].
Another option is to have the results of a widget sent to a variable. This option will apply if you have a custom widget and you want more control over what data will be used in the e-mail template.
STEP 1: Create the widget variable
$widget_var = widget("Name of Widget");
echo widget("Name of Widget);
$widget_var = ob_get_contents();
STEP 2: Include this variable in the email one of the following ways.
Pass the variable in the $w variable. Take $var and save it as $w['widget_var'] for instance.
Then reference this inside of your email template as %%%widget_var%%%
STEP 3: Use the code to pass this newly created variable into the email template and send the email
$w['widget_var'] = $widget_var;
$email = prepareEmail('templae-name-goes-here', $w); /// Email Template to Send
sendEmailTemplate($email['sender'], $user['email'], $email['subject'], $email['html'], $email['text'], $email['priority'], $w); //// Send Email
You can also pass the value directly into the email, skipping the email template. To do this, you can declare each of the parameters separately.
///This must include the sender name and email address. Name <[email protected]>
$email['sender'] = $w['website_name']." <".$w['website_email'].">";
/// This must be a valid email
$user_email] = "[email protected]_domain.com";
/// You must input a subject
$email['subject'] = ""Subject";
/// You must input a body in html
$email['html'] = "<strong>Your html code</strong>".$widget_var."with the variable from the widget included";
/// Email Text, If this is blank the system will strip the tags and send a text version
$email['text'] = "Text version of your email";
///Email Priority, can be left blank or input a number
$email['priority'] = "2";
/// This function will send the email
sendEmailTemplate($email['sender'], $user['email'], $email['subject'], $email['html'], $email['text'], $email['priority'], $w);
* Note both the subject and a body are required to send an email this way.
