Newsletter registration– how?

I want to have a section on my site, where visitors can register for a monthly newsletter.

How do I do this and what do I need (Except for the news ;-))

Are there any examples for it?

thanx

This came up the other day…

As this is an option using features in our hosting, and seeing there was a little confusion how this actually works, i’ve set up a quick demo here to better explain.

Its just a demo so no email will be taken or used! You can add or remove an email address and the emails collects in your control panel.

Hey Walter,

Why did this email reply to another post go so wrong when looking at web the forum?

My email reply to this went into another post, perhaps Walter knows why?

But here is where it should have gone.

Not sure. What email application did you use to reply to the message?

O.k., thanks David. This looks like I was searching for, but how do I integrate it into my Website? Are there any freeway-actions or is it “just” an offer of the webhost?

Sorry for that (stupid) question, but I am a rookie concerning webprogramming. I am a designer, who just discovered freeways’ simplicity and now wants more than just static, boring websites …

thanks in advance,

Jan

I’ve seen this happen when the originating message is not following the standards. I’ll have a look in the database and see if I can figure it out.

Hi Jan,

this is a run on, from this thread.

This is done using tools in our hosting.

I’ve cleaned up the thread manually in the database, but I can’t see why the in-reply-to header was getting ignored here. Dave, could you please experiment by setting your Mail preferences to plain-text, or change the Composing / Responding preference to ‘Use the same message format as the original message’ and see if that makes any difference in this thread-splitting behavior?

Thanks,

Walter

Will do - plain text it is, from now on.

Walt - its done it again when replying plain text (look at the Web forum)

I saw, and replied to you privately with a question about that.

For some reason, your copy of Mail is changing the character encoding
of the Subject line in a non-standard way. The Subject (and all
headers, as far as I know) must be encoded as text, yours is changing
the subject to quotable-printable encoding (all those equals signs etc).

A while back, I added a little trap to fix up the case where someone
tries to start a new thread by replying to an old one and changing the
subject in Mail. Because your reply utterly altered the subject line
with this encoding process, your messages were tripping that switch
and forcing a new thread every time.

I’ve disabled this trap, and hopefully we won’t see enough of the
other case to make this a difficult choice. But your Mail really needs
looking at – I’m pretty sure that encoded headers fail the RFC for
mail. Do you have any plug-ins installed in Mail by any chance?

Looking and other replies elsewhere in Mail I’ve yet to see this
subject text change so far, only this thread

Could it be the original post I replied to, had some other characters
included?

Just to wrap this side-thread up, David’s e-mail application was behaving according to the spec, but the mail-parser on the Web forum was over-thinking things. A function that compares the incoming reply to the original thread subject was not taking encoding into consideration, and so was splitting the topic because it thought that the reply was trying to start a new thread.

It’s all patched up now, we shouldn’t see these fractured threads any more.
