I have 2 preferences in my newsletter, which get displayed and can be used correctly 🙂
The only problem I have: on my subscription page, both preference selection boxes are unchecked by default, so users subscribe with no preference by default.
Is there any way I can tick one or all preferences to “on” on the subscription page?
I thought I found it on the “Subscription” config tab under the “Preferences” settings (where it says “Add to new subscribers these preferences by default.”), but that setting does not seem to have any effect?
I got around my specific problem by setting up a custom form with the identical HTML code as the original form, only adding “checked” in the HTML code of the two checkboxed in the subscription part, which seems to work for now.
The “forcing” however seems not to work. Even if all preferences are ticked on in the subscription configuration page, a user can still click submit without any preferences selected for a new registration and then there will also not be any preferences set on that user’s profile page.
