Request to create solution for permanent link of newsletter letters + archive
Steph is working on organizing a newsletter for Tor. One of the things we want to do is to have a permanent link of these letters so people can share them on social media etc.
This would be a simple html page with the same content used for the email. Systems like Nation Builder and Constant Contact that are used by NGOs to do mailing has an easy way to create these pages (an easy editor where you can use pretty much the same html you used to format the email version).
This ticket is to investigate if we could use the drupal we have for our blog to allow Steph to easily create these pages.
You can create pages with drupal from admin painel and the editor is very similar to publishing a blog post.
My questions re:
Can we first do a test using the html created for our newsletter (we have a version to test already) to create a page at our drupal (blog drupal) and see what we will have to do to get the format right? I assume things wont be as easy as a copy and paste. But giving the template will not change too much from one letter to another, getting the first one right will save time with the next ones.
Is there any security issue we should consider in order to do this?
I will wait to see what comes out from this investigation. We are also checking with Giant Rabbit on it. We are looking for the solution that is easy to do and be ready soon.
Once we have figure out how to create the permanent links for the newsletters, we will want to add a link to the press page: https://www.torproject.org/press/press.html.en
For an archive (index, simple page) where one could see all the past letters. Which could be kept updated manually (create a ticket for the page to be updated like we do for the press clips) or whatever is the best solution to do it.
