    Hi,
    New subscribers to the WPsite don’t get registered in newsletter. How do i insert captcha in the subscription form?

    Actually there is no option for a captcha. Did you experience a lot of fake sign ups?

    Hi Stefano,
    Thanks for the fast reply. Actually I don’t know. I am just now trying out the free newsletter plug-in and I am impressed by the ease to use interface.
    I have imported those that have registered previously to the site by WP and I don’t know if they are real. Maybe if I mail them a new confirmation mail it might be solved. I now have captcha on the WP login/register to site and think I understand how to implement it on the Newsletter/register page with php code. Thanks anyhow.
    Best..

    Btw re subscriber registration I noticed that registrations to the WP-site are noted, but as not confirmed subscribers in Newsletter. What I want is that new registers (to WP-site) get the/a/welcome/confirm mail from Newsletter.

    Hi, with newsletter in double opt in mode, even if there are fake registrations they stay in not confirmed mode. For the user registration, at the first login they will be confirmed (since to login they must have received the email with the password so the address is confirmed).

    Ciao Stefano,
    I am a old Swede so.. non perda la pazienza 🙂
    Sometimes I confuse subscribers (newsletter) and registered users.
    I can figure it out but I’m lazy. I would like all new registers to the site to also receive a mail from the newsletter module automatically and this is done by choosing the “Send welcome email to registered users”?
    Newsletter dedicated page: Can I have more than one?
    Maybe I should use the Pro version how much is the update?

    Hi Peter, having more than one newsletter page is possible, but the registration form will be always the same :-). Why do you need more than one page?

    Newsletter integrates with WordPress user registration. The latter just store a user inside the user table of WordPress, used to let users to log-in the site. Newsletter has it’s own subscriber tables. A newsletter subscriber is actually no more than an email address (may be with a name or some other data), it’s not an account that can login and do things on the blog as a recognized user.

    But on subscription step panel you can set Newsletter to add a checkbox on WordPress user registration form, so the user can decide to “opt-in” the newsletter. This way a user which register to your site is even registered in the Newsletter subscribers’ table (using the email the user input during the registration).

    The send welcome email to registered user is only a flag if you need the standard newsletter welcome email (configurable on subscription steps panel) to be sent even to who subscribe the newsletter from the WordPress registration process.

    All that is part of the free version, the pro extensions (not the pro version which is a legacy version) add some other features as describe on this site on their related pages. For any other doubt feel free to ask!

    Hello Stefano,

    I am also looking for a captcha solution for newsletter signup. I use PHP mail, and my provider suspended my PHP mail() execution right until following days due to heavy loads on fake subscription requests…
    Now I can’t receive subsciptions, and I only turn on your module when I want to send out newsletters to existing users… it’s a bad situation.
    Do you (or anybody) have any progress on integrating some captcha with your plugin?

    Same here, since several days I got lots of error-return-mails from fake-registrations.

    We have the same problem. There are hundreds of fake registrations done through bots which get our Mailserver into spam suspicion lists. Would be very nice to have a solution for this.

    Try the latest version and enable the antibot option inside the subscription steps panel.
