    Anyone know if there is a way to incorporate this into WordPress or if it's been done?

    thanks.

    Yeah, it is pretty cool; being free doesn't hurt either. :)

    Not sure what you mean by incorporating it into WP. Something I'm thinking of doing is to "create a page" for the subscription part, which would be in my blog template, and let the phplist pages do the rest (not in my blog template).

    One of the drawbacks to phplist (aside from it's lack of documentation) is that, at least for me, it's rather difficult to integrate it into your own template without having to jump through hoops. I've decided to just put the subscribe and unsubscribe pages into my template and let everything inbetween be phplist's template.

    very interesting. though, I want to do a mailing list system integrated with user logins more specifically... like Forum systems do. gee, I really don't want to have to write the universal login 'readers only' system, but I might have to as I've yet to see anything, aside from using a Forum to do it, that'll come close for WP.

    I'm looking basically to insert a phplist subscribe form at the bottom of my mainpage on WordPress. It's really that simple. But I can't figure out how. The link to the subscribe page is:
    http://iamnotashamed.net/phplist/lists/?p=subscribe&id=2

    and I can't find the php anywhere, in other words it's not a .php file (otherwise I'd just do include' '; on the mainpage).

    That's all I'm looking to do any suggestions?

    thanks.

    If I understand you correctly, I think what you do is take the code that's generated on the page you provided above and paste it into the pages you want it in. Or in your case, put it into a php file of its own and include that in every page.

    You could use the code here - http://www.jesseheap.com/phplistapi.php in combination with a form to allow users to subscribe to phplist. The code allows you to get around the requirement of using their somewhat inflexible template.

    I'll also look into creating a wordpress plugin to allow people to easily add this functionality.

    Over the weekend I put together a plug-in that allows you to easily drop a simple PHPList subscriber form on any wordpress page or post:
