Installations in easy steps

   Welcome to the quickstart section of the help here we will show how to install and use WEBinsta ML/NL manager system to control mail list and newsletters

 

Installation (the easy way)

      To install the script unzip the script in your root directory. (IMPORTANT: if you already have an index.php remane index.php to for example mail.php)
Fill in your browser the path. In this xample http://www.yourserver.com/mail.php.
Now you see an example page (look in the source how we did it) and click on administration.
An installation wizzard will guide you through some settings.
IMPORTANT: to set the first settings right.
EXAMPLE : website will be http://www.yourserver.com/
Relative path : maillist/
Relative String : mail.php?page=mail&

Once installation is completed see the index.php provided on how to integrate the script . Mainly it is simply taking the form code from the main page and pasting that code into your page . Other settings and control can be accessed admin.php in the script directory .

Please change the permissions on globals.php to world read and write ..

  • globals.php ( main file in which settings are stored )
    (and for the export funtion to work also the temp dir must have write's to write to !!)

Usage

.
To put up a simple mail box paste the following code in you php file .

<?php
$mailbar=1;
$group=1;
include("maillist/mailbar.php");
?>

where maillist is the dir of the script . There are four types of the mail registrations.( see index.php as an example)
By $group= you fill out the group number ( if you make a new group it will be number 2 and so on)

And put the following code in your main page

<?php
if(isset ($_GET['page']))
{
if ($_GET['page'] == "mail")
{
include("maillist/mailmain.php");
}
if ($_GET['page'] == "about")
{
include("about.php");
}
}else {
/* include( your messages "); */
print(":Your un/subscribe messages here:");
}
?>

Where the sentence appear :Your subscribe messages here:
your subscribe messages will appear

(I delete the sentence :Your subscribe messages here: so I don't see that line in my homepage)

Your main page will also be the relative string found in the admin
FOR EXAMPLE: you want to use the mailbox on a file named subscribe.php then put the above boxes in the file subscribe.php
and fill in the admin by Relative String :subscribe?page=mail&

If you want to use a customized email with the name of the subscriber fill in the following in one of
the textarea's in the sent mail {name} ( for an email adress use {email} )

IMPORT EMAIL ADRESSES
- You can import from a csv file as followed
"info@youradres.com","yourname"
