MailPoet

The  MailPoet add-on for Restrict Content Pro will integrate your site with MailPoet, a self-hosted newsletter plugin for WordPress. The add-on allows your customers to subscribe to your MailPoet email lists when they register for a membership on your RCP-powered website.

Note: MailPoet was formerly known as Wysija, and you may see it referenced by either name within the plugin and/or online.

Installing the MailPoet add-on

Download and install the plugin from the product's page  here. If you need help installing the plugin, refer to the WordPress plugin installation documentation.

Configuring the MailPoet add-on

After installing and activating the plugin, you need to configure it so it can connect with your MailPoet list. There are only two settings you need to configure. They are:

  • Newsletter List - the list you want members to be subscribed to
  • Form Label - the label on the registration form where people subscribe

To configure these, go to Restrict > MailPoet in your WordPress dashboard.

In the Newsletter List dropdown, select the list you want people to be subscribed to when registering for a membership. In the Form Label box, enter the text you want displayed next to the checkbox on the registration form. Then click Save Options.

That's it. You're done. Here's what it looks like.
