G-Lock Double Opt-in Manager
Can I send to an external mailing list?? (2 posts)

    This might be the same issue as below with "manual import of email addresses...", but I am using this plugin a little differently than it's intended purpose, I think.

    We have an existing mailing list that we managing with Mailman and I want to use G-Lock to scrape the latest blog posts by category and send them in a newsletter format to this list.

    I'm trying to figure out how I can confirm and add to the subscribers list in the plugin since the "email address" will actually be an alias for the list.

    Is there any way to manually add subscribers to G-Lock without going through the subscription/confirmation process??? Thanks in advance.

    Hi jesulliv,

    You can bypass the subscription/confirmation process by adding subscribers directly to the database.

    The best way would be to prepare a sql query and run it on the gsom_subscribers table. The query data should match the table format of course.

    It shouldn't be too hard to convert an existing csv, excell or sql file to the format required for the import.
