    I need to extend the functionality of the Newsletter Signup Controls... I am looking at ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Newsletters/SubscriptionFormTemplate.ascx

    If i want to create my own newsletter signup form and then use the functionality of the SubscriptionFormTemplate.ascx form (adding the email and name to the newsletter signup table, etc), how would i go about doing this?

    Hi Duncan,

    Please check the forum thread Newsletter Module API Question.
    In short, this is the logic you should be following:
    private static void RegisterNewEmail ( DataManager manager, string email, string fname, string lname, Guid groupId )  
        // Get the subscriber with the following email. if exist skip the creation of new subscriber.  
        DataManager manager = new DataManager ("Newsletters");  
        ISubscriber newSub = manager.GetSubscriber ( email );  
        if ( newSub == null )  
            // Create new subscriber object  
            newSub = manager.CreateSubscriber ( email );  
            newSub.FirstName = fname;  
            newSub.LastName = lname;  
            // Save the object.  
            manager.SaveSubscriber ( newSub );  
        // Check if the current subscriber is already subscriped at the following group.  
        IGroupSubscriber gSub = manager.GetGroupSubscriberRelation ( groupId, newSub.SubscriberId );  
        if ( gSub == null )  
            // Create new object of group subscriber ( Considered as a bridge between the group object  
            //  and the subscriber object.  
            gSub = manager.CreateGroupSubscriberRelation ( groupId, newSub.SubscriberId );  
            // Save the current object  
            manager.SaveGroupSubscribers ( gSub );
