I install the patch and it helped in Admin and I can see saved newsletter now, but still can't subscribe from subscription form on Subscribtion Page. I stiill get user_error("DataObject::get_by_id passed a non-numeric ID #$id", E_USER_WARNING);

Yeah, it's not perfect and there are some problems with the signup forms. The quickest way around that is probably building a custom form/function…

Are you using the rc version from SVN? That fixes most things I fixed and probably some other things as well.

I'm going to use a small custom-built SS-newsletter system at the moment. Mainly because the Newsletter module uses Member and this gives troubles when a subscriber is on more than one newsletter.

I think de-coupling from the member record is perfect. I've just added a user type that the only decoration on the member is a has_one to the data.

I'm running 2.4.3 and downloaded the "Latest trunk build" Newsletter module #114346 and I'm also getting the wonderful User Warning error "[User Warning] DataObject::get_by_id passed a non-numeric ID #1"

I only receive it when I submit the form to register for the newsletter. I have custom built the form and the trace is saying its the following line thats the problem:


I guess I'm wondering if this problem was fixed and I downloaded an older module, or if I'm pulling in the group wrong.

Here is my form action:

function SignUpAction($data, $form) {
		// check to see if they have signed up already
		$defaultGroupID = 4;
		$member = new Member();
		if(DataObject::get_one('Member', "Email = '". $member->getField("Email") ."'")) {
			// email exists don't let them sign up again
		} else {
			// sign them up
			if($group = DataObject::get_one('Group', "ID = $defaultGroupID")) {
			} else {

I moved $member->write(); into the if($group =...) statement and cleaned up my code and everything works now.
Not sure what it was exactly but its working nicely now.
