Public Registrations

Postby victor123 » 1:44am, Fri 01 Aug, 2014

Does phplist allow for public registrations? I log in with the admin account, but I don't see a REGISTER link where users can sign up to use the service. Please advise.
thanks.

You'll find that page at yourdomain/lists

By default it's pretty basic layout, but you can customise it via the admin pages, subscribe page options.

when I go to that page in my browser, I get a page that says:

Subscribe to our Newsletters

And when I view the files in the directory , I don't see any thing that looks like a register page. Please advise.

thanks.

I see that subscribers can sign up for a newsletter. But I am asking if end users can sign up to use the service. Like they would have their own login into phplist. Not as an admin, but as a normal user. So they can create their own lists, etc.

thanks

No, this is not something that phpList does, nor was ever designed to do.

The nearest thing is if you were to "promote" a subscriber to be an Admin but even then you would have to arrange the sending of a campaign, short of making said admin subscriber a full SuperAdmin.

A possible alternative for what you ask for would be Yahoo Groups.

Got it thanks you. So one instance of phplist is for one individual or company. If I wanted to offer this service to others, then they would need their own instance.

Any plans to make it as I described?

thanks for your response. Its been helpful.

That is correct.

To use as you describe, simply install phpList in a directory for each person/customer and if you have sufficent databases, one DB per install.

If you are limited to 1 or 2 DB's you could use one DB for all your customers, just ensure that you use a different prefix for each person's phpList and make daily backups of the DB as a problem with one installation could take them all down if the DB becomes corrupted.
