Mailchimp Signup without confirmation email

Mailchimp Signup without confirmation email

Hi Everyone!

I was wondering if there is a way to modify the joomailermailchimpsignup.php file to automatically sign up users to my mail chimp list when they register rather then when they register AND have to activate.

The module is working, and signing up users when the "Global Configuration > New User Account Activation" is set to Yes and the user clicks the email link.

But obviously when you click 'No' on this option, it no longer signs them up automatically.

I am currently working on a new site that would need this functionality and users who are signing up would be signing up with the authorisation to add them to the list. (I guess not breaking MailChimps rules). It is a private sign up site so all users will be pre-authed to even access the site and register.

I can see in the php file that lines 383 through 497 (approx) handle the activation of users and line 482 (approx) in particular handles the  "//Subscribe the user" section.

Am I able to use parts of this section of code an copy them into the standard registration section of this file so that users are subscribed to MailChimp if the "Global Configuration > New User Account Activation" is set to No.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dan

Re: Mailchimp Signup without confirmation email

How did you make out with this? We have a similar situation, our people are already in our database and confirmed we just want to add them to a webinar autoresponder.

I'm looking into it here: " $double_optin=true; " '
'.$this->handle_raw_url('http://apidocs.mailchimp.com/api/1.3/listsubscribe.func.php')

I'd love to keep it all inside this great component, it looks like the capability is there I'll investigate and report back..
