I would not have requirement for a full blown mass mailer.
Small number facility would suffice that could provide for a couple of hundred emails on lists. With that in mind and also to learn something of the workings of same scripts I am experimenting with the tutorial that I found at this link.
Not having success creating a New List which takes place on the newlist.php page with a controlling Form Action="makenewlist.php"
Code seemed alright. You were using short tags in the makenewlist.php file that might not have worked on your server. Also, the $Filename and $Listname would have to have been defined somewhere before the script runs.
Masterful work .... that has broken through that barrier...!
I shall continue the work through on this and if I should become unstuck again and I probably will, I will be adding to this thread.
In the meantime is there a simple explanation as to why the information in the scroll box is presented at the bottom of same rather than conventionally at the top? See image attached. Ie it is necessary to scroll down to see the information.
Edited data files so a to go back to the start and start new exercise as earlier it was rushed.
Created a new list called Tuirtre List and a LST file called Email.lst
Commenced installing sample email addresses and on submit the 500 error is presented... but the emails do get written to the Email.lst as required
Why the 500 error and has same any real significance ?
The inputs into the Email.lst do not happen on each line but are scattered in sequence like the attached image presents.
Why do the inputs become scattered as shown instead of being laid down line by line ?
I had modified the saveemail.php code a number of times.
Maybe copy-paste the code above again and see if it resolves the issue.
I was initially appending "\n" to the existing entries, but realised it wasn't necessary.
Also the original code was closing the incorrect file handle on existing email lists (which would cause an error 500) .
Yes bionoid, the revised code in the saveemail.php seems to have resolved the 500 issue and the spacing of the sample addresses in the Email.lst.
When I again entered the editnames.php all the sample emails were on lines as they should be. However when I add another sample email manually and click on > Save This List < all is then lost as I have described before....! The saving is not taking place at this point.
