Do I need to use phpList?
Yes, this plugin specifically designed to use phpList as the mailing list manager to store the email adresses
Will it work with other mailing list services such as MailChimp?
No, this plugin will not work with MailChimp or other mailing list services. It is designed as a free open-source alternative to these paid services. So, instead it works with phpList.
Can I add additional fields for the user to fill out, such as Name?
Unfortunately, no. Currently there is no provision in the AJAX code in phpList to parse these additional parameters. As a workaround,
it is possible to request for these fields (Name, Zip Code, etc) in any of the confirmation emails sent by phpList, or have
the user update their profile with these additional details.
Can I use more than one Sign Me Up widget?
You can only have one widget per WordPress page. But, you can setup multiple widgets that each reside on a different page of your website. For example, one widget on the “Contact Us” page, a different widget on the “Latest News” page, etc. This allows you to customize the message of the signup form to whatever content you are displaying on that page.
How do I customize the response message?
The messages for a successful response can be customized via the Subscribe Page in phpList. Unfortunately, the error messages and failed submission messages cannot be customized.
Can I use the hosted version of phpList?
Yes, this should work with no issues. Just make sure that you enable cross-domain AJAX first. For more detailed instructions, see Cross-Domains.
Can phpList and WordPress live on different domains or subdomains?
Yes. Again, just make sure that you have enabled cross-domain AJAX. For more detailed instructions, see Cross-Domains.
