Since version 2.0.0 there is another plugin for BwPostman to automatically subscribe to selectable mailing lists while a user registers at the website. The plugin is deactivated per default.
If the plugin is activated and a mailing list is selected, then a notice (see below) and a select box for the newsletter is displayed at the registering form of Joomla!®. The select box is set to no by default to be in conformity with the law.
If no mailing list is selected, the plugin also shows nothing.
If the user clicks to yes, there will be displayed more input fields potentially. This depends on the settings of the component. There could appear all input fields, that are selected at the settings on BwPostman at registration. It will concern the fields for gender, first name, last name, additional field and mail format. Also the settings for obligation are taken from these settings.
Subscribers created this way first are unconfirmed. Only after confirmation of the account of the website they will be confirmed also for the mailing lists. With this Double-Opt-In is complied. Especially if You point out, that the user is automatically added to the newsletter. For this notification the input field message at the options is conceived.
Here You first may enter a text, which will be displayed at the front-end in the registration form as introduction. This text is multi-language-capable.
Next You can set, if the disclaimer should be displayed. The settings for the disclaimer are made at the options of the component. Solely the setting, where the disclaimer shall be displayed, is not used at the plugin. The plugin displays the disclaimer always in a pop-up.
The options to this plugin also allows to set if the mail address of the subscriber will be changed if the mail address of the account is changed. You also can define whether a subscription will be deleted if an account will be deleted. Indeed, Joomla!® does not offer a possibility to delet an account to the user. This setting therefore only concerns user, which will be deleted at back-end.
The mailing lists the user shall get a subscription can be selected at the tab Select Mailinglist. At that time the user/subscriber has no possibility to change something at the selection. That can be done later if he has confirmed the account.
