    Default List handler

    Does this form give me the capability to have a user sign up for a majordomo mailing list? How would I go about this? If not, do you know of a PHP script for dummies that allows for mailing list sign up?

    Default Re: List handler

    Hi,

    Does this form give me the capability to have a user sign up for a majordomo mailing list?
    You write forms that use a script. FormMail is a script, not a form.

    I've never used MajorDomo, but from the website:

    Commands are sent to Majordomo via electronic mail to handle all aspects of list maintenance. Once a list is set up, virtually all operations can be performed remotely by email, requiring no intervention upon the postmaster of the list site.
    So:
    1. Determine what you need to send to MD to have a user sign up.
    2. Test that it works with direct emails.
    3. Create a form that collects the required information from the user.
    4. Configure the form and FormMail to send the form results to you, initially.
    5. Test and look at the email.
    6. If it's not in an acceptable format, use the PlainTemplate feature of FormMail to format the information correctly.
    7. Test.
    8. Once it looks exactly right, change the target email address in the form (the recipients field) to be the MD list processing email address.
    9. Test.
    If you just want it done (and documented), we can give you a quote for it.
