This is the code I use on a static page.

PHP Code:
<form action="news.php" name="subscribeform" method="post">
<
input type="hidden" name="subscribe_lng" value="{$store_language|escape}/>
<
label for="semail">{$lng.lbl_your_email}</label><br>
* <
input type="text" class="input-email" id="semail" name="newsemail" size="30" value="{$newsemail|default:""|escape}/><br><br>
{include 
file="customer/buttons/subscribe_menu.tpl" type="input" assign="submit_button"}
{if 
$active_modules.Image_Verification and $show_antibot.on_news_panel eq 'Y'}
{include 
file="modules/Image_Verification/spambot_arrest.tpl" mode="data-table" id=$antibot_sections.on_news_panel button_code=$submit_button}
{else}
{
$submit_button}
{/if}
</
form

Just applied that and its near perfect mate thankss...only one little problem im having is. Im trying to remove the spambot so its just a basic input box for the newsletter it hink ive done it with the following

<form action="news.php" name="subscribeform" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="subscribe_lng" value="{$store_language|escape}" />
<label for="semail">Signup for Newsletter: </label>
<input type="text" class="input-email" id="semail" name="newsemail" size="30" value="{$newsemail|default:""|escape}" /><br><br>
{include file="customer/buttons/subscribe_menu.tpl" type="input" assign="submit_button"}

Problem is when i enter an email address it just refreshes the page

Im not sure its working, is there anyway of getting to give a message stating the customer has successfully signed up for the email or is my code wrong ?

Also is there a place in the admin i can see these submitted newsletter emails ? ive found the news management but its not in there ?

Your missing a closing </form> for a start. Add that and see what happens. It should take you to a subscribed page.

sorry i did have the form closed but didnt paste it in

this is what i have now

<form action="news.php" name="subscribeform" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="subscribe_lng" value="{$store_language|escape}" />
<input type="text" class="input-email" id="semail" name="newsemail" size="30" value="{$newsemail|default:""|escape}" /><br><br>
{include file="customer/buttons/subscribe_menu.tpl" type="input" assign="submit_button"}

</form>

Phil, thanks for the dedicated form code. MY goal here is to make a static page that is hidden by robots.txt, and used as "subscribe" form for a 3rd party API that will "post" to the form. FROM THERE, the AWeber email API will take the info from the xcart database and send to AWeber email.

WHY the extra step?
AWeber will not permit a 3rd party to access their API.
But they will permit transfer of data from my xcart database to theirs. We just have to get the data into xcart (from facebook). The OfferPop API permits a "post" to xcart news form.

SO... I used the form as suggested in #2 and it's great. I removed the captcha. Works perfectly (after turning on the news module).

NOW -- I'd like to add a FirstName and LastName field to newsletter.

[why xcart default does not have a fullname or first/last fields optional is beyond me! personalized marketing email is proven to be FAR more effective than anonymous]

Any ideas how to do this?
Yes, I guess I would add two fields to the table: xcart_newslist_subscription

Then I guess it's gonna be an edit to
/modules/News_Management/news_manage.php

But that's just a bit over my head to do this from scratch.

It's probably 2 lines of code, right?

HAS ANYONE added first name and last name to the newsletter input form? How?

Thanks!
J
