Signup with Virtuemart registration

Signup with Virtuemart registration

Hi,

I just looked into your component! Great stuff!

I noticed that the checkbox for signing up for the newsletter does appear when registration comes in the checkout process (after you hit the ' pay' button) but doesn't when you register with the virtuemart_login module.

Any ideas on this one?

BR, Dennis

Additional info:
joomlamailer version: 1.7.2
Joomla! version: 1.5.25
PHP version: 5.3.8
MySQL version: 5.1.59

To get the Mailchimp signup to appear on the virtuemart registration page you need to edit the signup plugin.

in the 'plugins -> system -> joomailermailchimpsignup.php' file around line 56 you'll see the code:
||  ($option == 'com_virtuemart'  && JRequest::getVar('page') == 'checkout.index' )

add the following code on the line directly after it:
||  ($option == 'com_virtuemart'  && JRequest::getVar('page') == 'shop.registration' )

This show the subscribe option for me but so far the user hasn't actually been subscribed successfully. I'm looking into that now.

Any luck here? 

I'm in the same situation.  I now have JoomlaMailer installed and displayed as a checkbox on the VirtueMart registration page, but when checking the box, no confirmation email comes from MailChimp.

Any ideas how to get the checkbox to work with MailChimp now?

I've have my own plugin to handle the user subscription running at the moment. I just need to do some further testing on it for unsubscribing though.

I can let you have a copy if you like, or look at where the working code should be added to joomlamailer's plugin.

Re: Signup with Virtuemart registration

That would be great.  I'm not too worried about unsubscribe, because users can do that via email (or the web) through mailChimp.

I'm fine pasting code into the appropriate files... if you can give me your code to add and (about) where it should go.

Can you post it here?

Sorry something urgent has come up that I need to deal with. As soon as I get a moment I'll create a zip file to upload for you.

Do you just use the standard Joomla/VirtueMart registration - no Community Builder or such like?

And which version of Joomla are you using? I need to update my plugin to support J1.7 but shouldn't take too long to do.

Re: Signup with Virtuemart registration

Thanks JonH.
I'm using VirtueMart for registration.  I don't believe there is anything special about it.  I'm not running Community Builder.

Here are some version numbers:
Joomla: 1.5.22
VirtueMart: 1.1.7
JoomlaMailchimpIntegration:  1.7.2

Thanks.

Any luck getting the Mailchimp subscription to work?  I used the hack JonH suggested but subscriptions are not going through.
