 +====== phpList and Wordpress ======
 +
 +
 +Wordpress is a popular Open Source application to run a website. There are several sides to making phpList and Wordpress work together:
 +
 +  - Newsletter sign up
 +  - Subscriber integration
 +  - Newsletter creation
 +
 +
 +==== Newsletter Signup ====
 +
 +This is some system that allows you to have a "sign up to our newsletters"​ widget on your Wordpress site, which then subscribes the person to your phpList installation.
 +
 +==== Subscriber integration ====
 +
 +Implementing this will require digging deeper into the Wordpress mechanism to handle "​users"​. It may mean integrating calls to phpList at common stages of the Wordpress system. For example when someone makes a comment on a post they could be added to a list in phpList. This could be always, or only when they check a checkbox. ​
 +
 +==== Newsletter creation ====
 +
 +Why create a template creation system in phpList if Wordpress already does that. phpList is very good at sending a webpage, and Wordpress designers know how to create templates in Wordpress. Why not combine the two and have designers create a newsletter theme in Wordpress, editors edit the newsletter in Wordpress and then at the end post the URL to phpList for sending. ​
 +
 +
 +====== Current Plugins ======
 +
 +There are several plugins available that work in Wordpress to sign up to phpList. The most recent addition can do this very neatly using the Ajax subscribe functionality of phpList. ​
 +
 +- [[https://​wordpress.org/​support/​plugin/​sign-me-up|Sign Me Up]] - Wordpress plugin for the Ajax sign up system in phpList - Jaromy ​
 +- [[https://​wordpress.org/​plugins/​newsletter-sign-up/​|Newsletter Signup]] - (last updated Feb 2015)
 +====== Feature ideas ======
 +
 +- Integration with WooCommerce
 +- Integration with various form plugins (start with most popular)
 +- Integration with membership plugins (wp-emember,​ to start, then most popular)
 +- First class integration across most popular plugins that have mailing list integration (e.g., wherever Mailchimp/​Constant Contact/​etc. is integrated, have same or higher quality/​functionality phplist integration)
 +- Build a core function set, then have a wrapper for integration.
 +- Simpler and faster, the better (less can go wrong)
