Form for Newsletter Subscription and Removal
Adding a subscribe form could not be easier with
MailList Controller. The program contains a built-in
form tool, which will build the HTML form and the
php-script for you. The form is based on HTML and php,
which ensures that the form will work on most servers
without any problems. The tool will add the form code to
your webpage and will also create the required
php-script. The script will process the form and
sends the input from the user to the lists email
address. The program will receive the subscribe/remove
request during the next list synchronization (Sync).
How to start?
Please click on "HTML Webform Generator"
in the section "Member Lists"
and follow the instructions on the screen.
What kind of forms can I create?
The form generator allows you to create forms to
subscribe, remove and a combination of both. You don't
need to worry about any settings, the html webform
generator will pick the correct settings directly from
your "List Settings".
The form can also be used to populate your custom fields
for personalization, which makes it ideal for data
HTML file and php-Script
Add the text AMLC-WEBFORM on the desired
position, e.g. with your html editor and select the html
file in the program. Simply type in AMLC-WEBFORM, there
is no complicated coding required. Click on "Select
HTML File" and select the file on your local
hard-disk. If the file is already online on your
webserver, then please download the file - e.g. using
FTP - first.
Result-Page and Apperance of the Form
Finally you can change the apperance of the form and
define what page should be shown after the user has
submitted the information. This should be some kind of
"thank you" page, so that the user knows that
he has subscribed to your list (or removed).
Upload the HTML and the PHP-File
Finally upload both files to your web - e.g. using
FTP - and test it. Fill out the form using your own
email-address and click on "Subscribe". Now
run MailList Controller and synchronize
(click on "Sync"). The program will
synchronize by default every 60 minutes (this can be
changed in the "Options") or when you click on
