registration plugin not working? some documentation / help needed

I just installed joomailer for mailchimp (by the way great job!!)

I also installed the
com_joomailermailchimpsignup_v1.3
plg_joomailermailchimpsignup_v1.4

I am bit lost with this and wasn't able to find answers in the "getting started" pages nor the forum, I have a few questions:

do the component and plugin signup have both to be installed under extension in joomla? (I just got a doubt that the plugin needs to be installed as a CB plugin)

I installed all 3 zip as under joomla extensions.
The newsletter component shows up in Joomla

But as for teh signup plugin or component I don't know what to do.
I see them installed in joomla but:

when I register as a new user (CB registration) there is no sign of newletter
and I can't see anywhere an option to isntert this

I am using Joomla  1.5.20
CB 1.2.2

other extensions installed on the server:
  AvReloaded       1.2.4 
Banners     1.5.0
FeedGator     2.1.2
Gantry     3.0.7
JCE     1.5.7.4
JFusion     1.1.3-000
Joomailer Mailchimp Signup     1.3
Joomla_LMS     1.0.6
Jumi     2.0.6
LQM     4.0.6
Newsfeeds     1.5.0
JoomailerMailchimpIntegration     1.0.7
Polls     1.5.0
Weblinks     1.5.0
Zina     2.0b22

Using a customized joomla template
(by the way I testing this, it's not on a live server)

Any idea, comment would be much appreciated
Thanks so much

Hello,

You did everything right with the installation. All 3 extensions need to be installed as normal Joomla extensions, not as CB plugin or anything else.
The Joomailer signup component does not show up in the components menu in the Joomla backend because there is nothing to configure. But you have to configure and enable the plugin. To do so go to: Extensions - Plugin Manager and click on the "System - Joomailer Mailchimp Signup" plugin. Select a list and set it to enabled. Then the checkbox "Signup to our newsletter" should show up in your registration form at the very bottom.

Kind regards,
Pete

Re: registration plugin not working? some documentation / help needed

Hello Pete
I am running in another little issue
I think I am just missing something in the setup, I get this error when I signup as a new user:

Unable to load listSubscribe()! Code=211 Msg=This list does not have interest groups enabled

do you know what this is?
Thnak you so much

Hi Stefano,

Interest groups are choices you can set for your users to fill in upon registration.  For example, "Male or Female", "Favourite Movie", etc.

This error sounds like it is being created because a blank string is being submitted as interest groups instead of nothing.  I will look into this and get back to you shortly to confirm whether or not this is the case.  If it is then a small bug fix will be required.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi,

Version 1.0.8 of the Mailchimp component is now available.  This new version incorporates the installation of the signup component and the signup plugin.

The changes mentioned above have been made to the plugin.

Thanks
