    With regard to YMLP this question has been posted before but I have seen no answers sofar or I might have missed it:

    - Subscribers are added via the extra tick box when commenting.That part works.

    But

    - The subscribers do not receive a confirmation mail
    - I do not receive a notification mail that there is a new subscriber
    - The autoresponder coupled to the list does not get triggered

    Additional info:

    The original YMLP form uses double opt-in. Does that need to be single optin for everything to get triggered?

    I solved some of the problems by NOT using the YMLP api. The results are now:

    - Subcribers are added via the extra tick box when commenting
    - The subscribers receive a confirmation mail with a link to click
    - I do receive a notification mail that there is a new subscriber
    - The autoresponder coupled with the list does get triggered.

    The only minor issue now is that a subscriber is now redirected, after confirmation, to the page where he gets informed that he needs to confirm via the link in the mail. This message is out of sync. In stead the Thank You for registering page should be shown.

    Ok, that last minor issue is resolved as well. It turned out to be a wrong setting by me in the YMLP form settings, in the YMLP dashboard. So all is working well now.

    My advice thus is to NOT use YMLP api (contrary to the recommendation in the plugin) but to fill in the correct form action in the plugin List settings.

    Hi Magdor,

    Nice work on resolving everything yourself. I will look into the YMLP API and fix things so you can use the YMLP API instead, as this is more convenient for most users.

    Great work and thanks for your extensive report!

    I'll let you know as soon as I've looked into the various issues you mentioned!

    I am having the same issues with YMLP. Activated the API on YMLP side [this I didn't read anywhere] and using the API on the list settings

    form sign-up:
    - added to the list
    - no pop up box with notification of confirmation email
    - no confimation mail sent
    - no notification mail
    - no autorespond email

    tickbox on comments, subscribers are NOT added to the list.

    I will try and go the manual way, see if I can get things resolved...
