This plugin allows you to prefix the subject line of list messages of any list with a text string. Different prefixes may be used for different lists.


Install the plugin using the Plugin Manager and the download URL above, which points to latest version of the plugin. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually. Make sure that the list is enabled before attempting to use it.

You can enable a plugin from the Plugins page found under the Configuration menu found at the top of each Phplist page.

List parameters can be edited by selecting Subscriber lists under the Subscribers menu seen at the top of each Phplist page.

When you add a list or select a list to be edited, you will be taken to the “EDIT A LIST” page. There you will find the parameters to be filled in or edited for the selected list.

This plugin adds a new field to the “EDIT A LIST” page. This field is labeled “Subject line prefix for this list:”. Here you can enter up to 255 characters of text to serve as a subject line prefix for the edited list.

The prefix entered here applies only to the list you are editing. You can create different prefixes for other lists.

The prefix that you enter will be applied to each message sent out through the particular list. The prefix is separated from the subject of the message by a single space.
