Creating Email Newsletters with patNewsletter (part 2)
Learn to manage subscribers and customize newsletters with patNewsletter.

| Sign In |

In the first part of this two-part series on patNewsletter,  I showed you that managing a newsletter is as easy as clicking your way through a series of menus. I started with an introduction to the intricacies of creating a newsletter, adding topics, creating new issues, and adding content to your newsletter before sending it out. And to ensure that your newsletter doesn't remain on the drawing board for too long, I also gave you some tips on how to implement a workflow for your newsletter.

Today, I'm going to get into more advanced aspects of the topic, showing you how to customize the format of the newsletter. This will be followed by a demonstration of the built-in subscriber management system, and customization of the forms that come bundled with the application. All the templates used in this application are based on the powerful patTemplate technology...so if you already know how this works, you're going to be ahead of the game already.

Security is of paramount importance - after all, you don't want hackers to walk in and steal your content - and to that end, I will also show you how to use HTTP authentication to protect the patNewsletter administration module. Finally, I will talk about patExtras, nifty little tools that allow you to keep your installation of the patNewsletter application updated at all times.

Let's get started, shall we?
