I’m new at this and I am hitting a few walls, so apologies in advance for the barrage of questions which will follow in the next few days.
Some background info. We’ve been running a custom mailing list program which was working seamlessly with our sites but as the program is no longer maintained phplist seems like the best option.
- In the old program we had over 2700 subscribers categorised in 3 lists: ALL, LOCAL, PRESS.
I have managed to migrate all subscribers but the lists they belonged to were not imported and they are currently all in the ‘newsletter’ list. Is there a way to get everyone under the lists they belong to?
1a. The way we have been running these lists, subscribers did not have an option in changing those preferences. ie, we do not want to send emails internationally if it is a very local event, or we do not want people who are not members of the press to be receiving press emails. Is there a way to prevent people from selecting such options?
Is there a way to parse and present the number of subscribers on other pages in our website?
Is there a way to have more fields in the public side subscriber page? Our emails up to now had NAME, SURNAME, and EMAIL as required fields and WEBSITE as an optional one. We would like to maintain this system.
