    I need to add another input field to the newsletter module.  Currently the control allows for email address, first name, and last name.  I would like to add zip code.  Is this possible?

    Hello Chris Wilper,

    Newsletters module is not GenericContent based module. It does not support dynamic metakeys so that the only way to create a new field and persist it ( you can easily add a control with zip codes but it cannot be persisted) will  require developing a new data provider. If the subscribers are CMS users you can use Profile properties to persist Zip code data. Then you can use ProfileBase.GetPropertyValue Method to show the ZIP code.

    Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.
