    Creating a Subscribe List


    Can someone help me or point me in the right direction?

    I'm trying to create a subscribe list for my website using the API.

    Do I need to use migrations to create a table? I'm finding migrations confusing and haven't found anything to help me understand this better. I've read the database section which has left me with more questions.

    Should I be creating Umbraco Members to handle subscribers?

    What is the best way to handle subscribes in umbraco? Has anyone done this?

    Thanks for your time.

    Best, Daniel

    In the past, for Subscribers/Newsletter signups we've used a

    Form > SurfaceController > Mail Chimp

    Really easy to set up, think I have some code for this if needed.

    If you need to do something else with the info, maybe create them as a Member, set the Member Group Type and Member Type to Subscriber.

    Then you have that data in Umbraco back office.

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for your advice. I was hoping to get to a point where I can send my own emails. The mailchimp idea was helpful. I might do that since mailchip will handle the open rate reports and the unsubs, etc.

    Best wishes, Daniel
