So many users asked us about the Mailing lists configuration. When so many people asks something, means it isn’t clear.
In this post we will explain the different ways to work with it. First of all, Knews comes with a default mailing list, opened for everyone and every language (if your website are multilingual):
First of all: what means “open” and “open for registered users”?
Our web visitors can be registered in our WordPress as Users or not. An unregistered user only can subscribe to the “Open” mailing lists, and a registered user only can subscribe to “Open for registered users” mailing lists.
The language filter
If you are running under multilanguage website, you can also open one mailing list for one language. This is our recommendation if you want to perform one newsletter for every language:
What about private mailing lists?
You can also use a mailing list for private communication, there is, only you can add users, nobody can subscribe by their own. In this example, we are added two mailing lists, one for our WordPress users and another absolutely private, the communication will be always in english, then we don’t isolate by language:
Allow users to choose the mailing list
You can also allow users to choose what are the mailing list to subscribe. In this example, we allow English users to choose between: “Knews Newsletter”, “Geek users” and “Extra list”. In the subscription form will appear a combo box.
In spanish only appears two options “Boletín de Knews” and “Geek users”.
Note that now we renamed the mailing lists to formal names, because it will be visible in the combo box:
And… what happens if one user have all the mailing lists closed for him?
The subscription form will not shown.
