Any one have any more common sense suggestions:
I have a website that has been running for a while, and once a week subsubscribers are sent an email newsletter, the content of which is a specific node type, made up of a series of EVA (Entity Views Attachment) views. These EVA views take the most recent x nbr of posts from different categories with differing filters. All working well.
But the nature of the newsletter is that the node does not "snapshot" content, it just presents the last news at the point in time it is emailed to the subscription list.
We now want to ALSO capture that newsletter as a PDF, and save it to the website as an archive.
I thought I had the components I need in EVA and Views_PDF module.
I have Views_pdf rendering a PDF of test content via rules. But Views_PDF only supports showing fields - not nodes (and therefore not EVA embedded nodes). So I dont think I can combine the awesome power of EVA and Views_PDF to create the PDF newsletter.
I'm now going back to see if I can use "Print" module to create a PDF of the node (as sent via email) via rules...
I haven't had much sleep for a few days - so voice in my head is saying I'm making this more difficult than it needs to be...
What would others use to to a create a newsletter that gets emailed as HTML, AND gets archived as PDF?
