    Simple newsletter script?

    Hey, I'm in urgent need of a simple newsletter script in PHP. I'd appreciate any help finding one with these features:

    - The script should be a regular news section on a webpage, and an email is sent out every week that sends out the last 10 or so news postings. (so, people can view news online as well as receive emails)
    - Multiple moderators that can add/edit their own news.
    - More than one category to sign up for (such as admin newsletter and regular member newsletter)

    Thanks a lot.

    This belongs in a different thread btw.

    Hmm... can someone please move it to the right section please?

    The main feature I need is just this one:
    - The script should be a regular news section on a webpage, and an email is sent out every week that sends out the last 10 or so news postings. (so, people can view news online as well as receive emails)

    The rest perhaps I can figure out myself.

    Thanks.

    Your ecommerce site looks good, but you should make the buttons on the top different than white, it's hard to see.

    Hey, thanks for the link, but I don't think any of those newsletter scripts really suite my purpose. It's easy to find good online news scripts or good online newsletter scripts, but never both integrated with each other =\

    I found one called SimpNews, but it's terribly coded and has way too many bugs. I've already spent many hours trying to deal with it, but too much time was wasted.

    Any other suggestions?

    You could use the majordomo 'mailing list manager'. If you use directadmin with your hosting, it is easy to use the API, to manage the mailing list.

    You can then subscribe an archive email adress to your mailing list, like archive@mydomain.com.
    With PHP, you can then access the emails, maybe save them to MySQL and show them as news items.

    The admin section can be coded with the direct admin API, or you can use the directadmin control panel for administrators.

    Here are some links:

    direct admin api for mailing lists
