Default Automatic addition to a newslist all new customer

Automatic addition to a newslist all new customer (hide the check box on signup).

Replace your "skin1/modules/News_Management/register_newslists.tpl" with this code:

PHP Code:
{if $login ne ""}
{if 
$active_modules.News_Management and $newslists}
{if 
$hide_header eq ""}
<
tr>
<
td height="20" colspan="3"><b>{$lng.lbl_newsletter}</b><hr size="1" noshade="noshade" /></td>
</
tr>
{/if}

<
tr>
<
td colspan="3">{$lng.lbl_newsletter_signup_text}</td>
</
tr>

<
tr>
<
td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
<
td>
<
table border="0">

{
section name=idx loop=$newslists}
{
assign var="listid" value=$newslists[idx].listid}
<
tr>
<
td><input type="checkbox" name="subscription[{$listid}]" {if $subscription[$listidne ""}checked="checked"{/if} /></td>
<
td>{$newslists[idx].name}</td>
</
tr>
<
tr>
<
td>&nbsp;</td>
<
td><i>{$newslists[idx].descr}</i></td>
</
tr>
{/
section}

</
table>
</
td>
</
tr>

{/if}

{else}
<
tr>
<
td colspan="3">
<
div style="display:none;">
    {
section name=idx loop=$newslists}
        {
assign var="listid" value=$newslists[idx].listid}
        <
input type="checkbox"  name="subscription[{$listid}]" checked="checked" />
    {/
section}
</
div>
</
td>
</
tr>
{/if}

FYI, this is considered unethical in many instances and will cause some irate customers (myself included). Newsletter sign-up should be 'opt in' and not automatic.

Yes, I know. But anyone that may be needed in some cases.

Thanks for your codes. Now I have a third party newsletter application named phplist in my same domain now can I able to enter the user email id from x-cart to phplist's email list automatically?

If possible how?

Thanks to all

Also I believe in some countries all newsletters should be opt in and not out. I know that in the UK that this is the case, not sure about other countries?

Having a newsletter that is not opt-in is considered spam by most ISPs and is a sure way to get all of your email, including order notifications, banned. If your "phplist" does not include an opt-out feature it is definitely spam, and will be treated as such by most if not all reputable ISPs.

Regardless of all the legal stuff guys, its bloody annoying receiving mail that you did not subscribe for! Xcart should ban things like this from their forum.

No hard feelings to the poster, but don't you think you are encouraging spammers with your code?

Most do it in a cunning way thou, such as the mailing list for example, when you say sign up, is checked by default on many sites, I think that should also stop, as most will sort of hide that..

Its up to the (x-cart) user. If they really want to lose customers all you can do is warn against it. If they refuse to listen, fortunately they aren't around very long.
