I’ve setup phplist a few times in the past and never had this issue. This time, using the latest version, when I setup my subscribe page it is not displaying the form to allow for anyone to actually subscribe. Here is the link to my test site subscribe page.
All I did was put in my header and footer on the subscription page config from the admin interface. You have re-articulated the problem. I thought the form was automatically generated threw the creation of a subscription page using the admin interface. In past installations that’s all I had to do. Any idea why the form is not displaying?
I think I know what the problem is now. I’m pretty sure I have a mod_rewrite causing issues. I see the same thing occurs on a working site if ?p=subscribe is not passed. I’m guessing my rewrite rules are rewriting /lists/?p=subscribe to something else.
