    sorry to bombard the forum with so many questions but I cannot find a lot of these answers in the documentation. for example, the newsletter module. is the only way to get users into it to manually enter each user and their email address? is there not an option to drop a form on the site and collect data, as well as present a form for users to unsubscribe? it seems that this would be a pretty standard feature but since it's such a new feature (I think?) it might not have been implemented...

    but if it was, can you please tell me where it is? thanks!

    Hi SelArom,

    We have implemented API functions for that, but unfortunately they are not documented yet. With their help you can develop an user control that subscribes/unsubscribes users from/to the newsletter module. Please refer to this forum thread for some more information about the APIs.

    We are now working on implementing such user controls out of the box. They will be available after installing the SP2 which is scheduled for the end of May. Documentation for the Newsletter API's will be available with the same release.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Best wishes,
    Georgi

    I am also wondering how to do this. I have installed 3.2SP2, however I cannot find which  user control to use.

    By the way, is there an easy way to find out which build who are installed?

    Hi Ole Losvik,

    You can use Newsletters -> Subscriber Form control from the Control Toolbox.
    To understand which version of Sitefinity you are using, you could by look in the source code of some your pages. Please check the content attribute of meta tag with name Generator. For example, it could look like this:
    <meta name="Generator" content="Sitefinity 3.2.1500.2:0" /> 

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    All the best,
    Georgi
