Summary0002102: ver 2.9.3 - Missing "Send Test Message" option
DescriptionI love the new "send message" interface, and 2.9.3 seems to have fixed some other bugs...but there is no longer a way to send a test message before queueing them to be sent to users. Pleeeeease put this feature back soon...i'm using 2.9.3 in a production environment (although i know i'm not supposed to) because i need the blacklist feature...

in send_core.php i notice the following line:

#print $sendtest_content;

which comments out the "send test" button and text input box.

my questions are:

1. is this a deliberate feature change to prevent admins (or sub-admins) from skipping the message queue to send messages to users?

2. will uncommenting this line break anything?

Yes, sorry. Uncommenting that line will be fine. For some reason I forgot to do this when releasing the version.

actually, uncommenting the line will kind of mess up the interface a bit. the app will still work, but the "send test" input items will appear on every tab of the "send message" page. what i did was this:

 switch ($_GET["tab"]) {
    case "Attach": print $att_content; break;
    case "Criteria": print $criteria_content; break;
    case "Format": print $formatting_content;break;

#changed code below
    case "Scheduling": print $sendtest_content . $scheduling_content;
#end changed code

    case "RSS": print $rss_content;break;
    case "Lists": $show_lists = 1;break;
    case "Review": print $review_content; break;
      print $maincontent;
#print $sendtest_content;

i also changed the appearance of $sendtest_content to fit a little better on the interface, on the scheduling page.

I saw this as a feature and not a bug.. Having it on every page means that folks can test out different templates or change the text without jumping back..

However, there are certainly some tabs where this just doesn't make any sense.
