    [SOLVED ] Newsletter subscription empty database recipient field Link to this post

    Hello Everyone

    I found out one reason why when you use the SubscribeForm for a newsletter it creates blank entries instead of filling them :

    The name of the fields wich are used in the form are related to the array of variables used to populate the database.

    If you want to change the original field names used in the form (let's say from "Email adress" to "Something else" you have to edit

    SubscribeForm.php where you will find around line 25 this array :

       static $obj_field_map = array(
          'Email address' => 'Email',
          'First name' => 'FirstName',
          'Last name' => 'Surname',

    you will have to change the first row from 'Email address' => 'Something else'

    to get it work

       static $obj_field_map = array(
          'Something else' => 'Email',
          'First name' => 'FirstName',
          'Last name' => 'Surname',

    It is the same for the other fields

    Hope this help
