    newsletter module problem Link to this post

    I downloaded Daily Build (”trunk”) from http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=modules:newsletter,
    unpacked to root of my site. Built the database.
    Now I see two new page types "Subscribe Form" and "Subscription Page" in the admin.

    If I try to create a new page with type "Subscription Page" and save it, I get an a error that page can't be saved, after that I have screen with lots db errors. And admin mode doesn't work until I uninstall the newsletter module.

    Am I doing something wrong? How to use this module?

    thank you !

    Sorry, I didn't notice the tab "Newsletter". Now I understand how the module works.

    But I have couple questions.
    1. How to make attachments to the newsletters? Is it possible to do?
    2. I also need to publish newsletters on my website. Is it possible to do?

    thank you !

    "Now I understand how the module works. "

    How does it work please?
    why are there two page types and which do you use? I have problems with both!!
    "Subscribe Form" page type doesn't add the names to the db of subscribers they are there but empty, even with the latest trunk version.
    "Subscription Page" FIX Below page type doesn't let me check the "Email" field so it doesn't appear in the form! And having them required does nothing the form still sends empty! FIX : http://www.silverstripe.org/all-other-modules/show/274872#post274872
    good idea for a mod but seems to be problematic for many...

    any help or suggestions? , thanks

    UPDATE:

    Commented out this line:
    $fieldsSelection->setCellDisabled(array("Email"=>array("Value","Required")));
    in SubscriptionPage.php and now I can check the email field so that is working at least!
