Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations External Content Is in Beta Stage  

There was some discussion about phplist intergration into vBulletin 4.x the first one was a full intergration of PHPList into vBulletin but it never made it.

This widget makes it posible to subscribe to the PHPList system without linking to it. At the moment you still transfer to the PHPList system after sign-up this is normal behavior of the system.

To make the Widget do the following:

01. Create New Widget
02. Widget Type = Static HTML
03. Title = <your own choice>
04. Description = <your own choice>
05. Save
06. Configure the new widget
07. Copy and Paste code here below

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

08. Change the "http://www.XXXXXXXXXXX.XXX/maillist/?p=subscribe" line to what is the url and directory to your PHPList.
09. Change the "name="list[X]" line where X is is the number of the mailing list.
10. Login to your PHPList admin section
11. Go to configure
12. The following line "if there is only one visible list, should it be hidden in the page and automatically subscribe users who sign up (0/1)" must be TRUE
13. Go to subscribe pages
14. Edit "HTML Email choice" set it to Don't offer choice you can choose HTML or TEXT
15. Place the widget on the frontpage trough the Layout Manager
16. Done

Limits of this widget:

There are a few limits one big advantage is that you can only have one PHPList where you make contact to. The other is that you need to either make the choice of TEXT or HTML for the people atm they can't choose. The major drawback is that email is not verifyt by a second email adress to type in. Its only a widget but the code works everywhere that has HTML enabled.

The normal workings of the PHPList like sending a email for control is still working with this system.

No its does not PHPList does not take topics or anything else from the forum, you need to create that all by your self. The one that AzzidReign said vBGeek that one does support what you say. But the build in and as far as i know the vBGeek one does npot support bounces and that is a must to prevent negative points in other mail systems.
