I've considered re-doing the email newsletter signup feature on my website (php and mysql based). Currently, when someone enters their email address to opt-in, it just saves it to a record in the site's database.
Instead of doing this, I'd like to use a 3rd party autoresponder tool like Aweber or Email Aces which would store the email addresses and names with them when someone signs up through the form (this would provide many additional features). This is fairly simple to do since usually the code is provided by the autoresponder service.
However, the confusing part is that I'd like to integrate the 3rd party autoresponder service with this also:
Users of my site can also signup to become members of the site which gives them access to other features. I'd like to add a checkbox that would allow users to opt-in to the newsletter when they signup to become a member. So, basically all of their regular registration information gets saved to the website's database, but then the newsletter opt-in info (name and email address) gets saved to the autoresponder's database.
Does anyone know of a way this can be done with php?
