I'm using simplenews module in Drupal 7. Also I have working mailing system as well as Cron system. I want to resend the newsletter that has been sent previously. I don't want to edit the database every time for resending. I want to send newsletter using user interface itself.

I tried editing simplenews.module and simplenews.admin.inc files.

I edited simplenews.module


But as I edited for SIMPLENEWS_STATUS_SEND_READY, it started giving me notice in the admin panel stating:

Notice: Undefined offset: 2 theme_simplenews_status() (/home/#####/public_html/#######/sites/all/modules/simplenews/includes/simplenews.admin.inc file row number 1776 ).

But I couldn't edit simplenews.admin.inc file. And in the newsletter sending option it shows following message but don't send message when I run Cron:

This newsletter is pending

Please help if someone has faced the same issue.


Perhaps easier to clone and then resend the newsletter node with the node_clone module.

The clone module allows users to make a copy of an existing item of site content (a node) and then edit that copy.
  • Ok. I'll try using the mentioned module. – Akshay Mar 9 '15 at 2:52
  • Though this is not the right method that I want, I'll use this. Thanks. – Akshay Mar 10 '15 at 7:05

This is a old issue but it may help anybody looking for quick solution. I was looking for the same functionality and end up with Simplenews Status Reset module..(posted on August 1, 2015) it's allows to reset the sent status of an already send node/news so that you can send it again.
