Newsletters are a great way to generate repeat business. The Pro Edition’s
eNewsletter Module interacts with site data tables, the Forms Library,
and Page Editor to make it easy to send and manage newsletter campaigns.
The content for this
eNewsletter will be identical to that of the “July Widget News”
page you created earlier. If you wish the Super Widget Shopping Cart Object
to be included in the newsletter, place it on the “July Widget News”
page in the same way that you placed it on the “Products”
Next, open the “Newsletter
Signup” page in the Page Editor and drag the Sign-Up object (upper
left) into the Content Area, which will open a new window. Choose the
“Quick-N-Dirty” form from the drop-down box under “Choose
the form you wish to use on this page.” Leave the other options
unchanged, and click Accept (upper-right). Preview the page and then submit
the form, making sure that you give it your correct email address and
specify HTML as your preferred format. After you have successfully submitted
the form, return to the Main Menu and click on eNewsletter.
