Subscribe To Mailchimp

Recommended Posts

Hi @daniels, on a site, where I had installed and used the module since its first release, the subscribe method doesn't work anymore.
To clarify: The module is upgraded to the last master version.

Could it be, that there was a change introduced by MC, maybe two months ago? Since then it seems not to work anymore.
I setup a logger at these two points:
A) https://github.com/danielstieber/SubscribeToMailchimp/blob/fd5039ec94e2b4ad49458ce090a240ba2d3979d6/SubscribeToMailchimp.module#L53
B) https://github.com/danielstieber/SubscribeToMailchimp/blob/fd5039ec94e2b4ad49458ce090a240ba2d3979d6/SubscribeToMailchimp.module#L62

The responses are now all the time:

A) (status) 401

  "title":"Resource Not Found","status":404,"detail":"The requested resource could not be found.",

Do you know about any changes?

This only happens when I try to subscribe a NEW user. When I send a already known user, I get back correct responses, like before:
A) (status): unsubscribed or subscribed

Hey @horst,

thanks for reaching out. I have to check the details, but just on first sight:

I think error B is just because of a problem at A. Line 62 is not supposed to be executed for new user.

I'm very sorry, but I won't be able to look into it before Friday/Saturday due to a business trip. I made a todo and will do some testing and refactoring when I'm back.

Maybe a quick and dirty fix for you meanwhile:

With an if, check If you get the 404 in line 62 (patch), and if yes, execute the post request which is supposed to be executed for new users:
$response = $http->send($api, json_encode($param), 'POST');

Hi @daniels,

thanks for the quick response! Now, when so say it, maybe I have added a bug by myself when editing the module to add the logger. I've also wonder why not the other send method was invoked. I will check / resolve that and post here again with the new results before friday!

Hi @daniels,

I'm using your module and I have to thank you a lot, it is saving me hours of time.

However I'm facing a problem: if I subscribe a user (goes fine), unsuscribe him (goes fine too) and then try to subscribe him again there goes nothing. He stays with the "Unsubscribed" status inside my Audience section of the Dashboard.

How could I try to solve this issue?

If I remember correctly that has to be enabled in Mailchimp first. Allow someone to re-subscribe again.

Hi @horst,

I'm facing similar problems with subscribing a new user to my list, here is my code: (an hook for the LoginRegister module by ryan)

wire()->addHookAfter('LoginRegister::processRegisterForm', function($event) {
    $form = $event->arguments[0];
    foreach($form->getAll() as $f) {
        $name = $f->attr('name');
        if(strpos($name, 'register_') !== 0) continue;
        if($name == 'register_subscribe_newsletter' && wire('input')->post->register_subscribe_newsletter == 1) {
            $mc = wire('modules')->get("SubscribeToMailchimp");
            $email_dirty = wire('input')->post->register_email;
            $email = wire('sanitizer')->email($email_dirty);
            $subscriber = [
                'FNAME' => wire('input')->post->register_nome_iscritto,
                'LNAME' => wire('input')->post->register_cognome_iscritto
            $mc->subscribe($email, $subscriber);

And here is what the mailchimp console said about the request:


I've tested everything I can imagine (list_id, api key, etc...) but nothing.

I've also tried to edit the line 62 of the module with

$response = $http->send($api, json_encode($param), 'POST');

but the error still remain....

Did you solved it somehow?




I've solved changing line 54 of the module from:

if($status !== false) {


if($status !== 404) {

Basically Mailchimp returns a status of 404 (and not false) when the module tries to insert a new user. This is correct because the user is not there in the list at first.

      Repeater Images
      Adds options to modify Repeater fields to make them convenient for "page-per-image" usage. Using a page-per-image approach allows for additional fields to be associated with each image, to record things such as photographer, date, license, links, etc.
      When Repeater Images is enabled for a Repeater field the module changes the appearance of the Repeater inputfield to be similar (but not identical) to an Images field. The collapsed view shows a thumbnail for each Repeater item, and items can be expanded for field editing.

      Install the Repeater Images module.
      Create an image field to use in the Repeater field. Recommended settings for the image field are "Maximum files allowed" set to 1 and "Formatted value" set to "Single item (null if empty)". Create a Repeater field. Add the image field to the Repeater. If you want additional fields in the Repeater create and add these also. Repeater Images configuration
      Tick the "Activate Repeater Images for this Repeater field" checkbox. In the "Image field within Repeater" dropdown select the single image field. You must save the Repeater field settings to see any newly added Image fields in the dropdown. Adjust the image thumbnail height if you want (unlike the core Images field there is no slider to change thumbnail height within Page Edit). Note: the depth option for Repeater fields is not compatible with the Repeater Images module.
      Image uploads feature
      There is a checkbox to activate image uploads. This feature allows users to quickly and easily add images to the Repeater Images field by uploading them to an adjacent "upload" field.
      To use this feature you must add the image field selected in the Repeater Images config to the template of the page containing the Repeater Images field - immediately above or below the Repeater Images field would be a good position.
      It's recommended to set the label for this field in template context to "Upload images" or similar, and set the visibility of the field to "Closed" so that it takes up less room when it's not being used. Note that when you drag images to a closed Images field it will automatically open. You don't need to worry about the "Maximum files allowed" setting because the Repeater Images module overrides this for the upload field.
      New Repeater items will be created from the images uploaded to the upload field when the page is saved. The user can add descriptions and tags to the images while they are still in the upload field and these will be retained in the Repeater items. Images are automatically deleted from the upload field when the page is saved.
      The "Use accordion mode?" option in the Repeater field settings is useful for keeping the inputfield compact, with only one image item open for editing at a time. The "Repeater item labels" setting determines what is shown in the thumbnail overlay on hover. Example for an image field named "image": {image.basename} ({image.width}x{image.height})

      Hello There Guys.

      I am in the process of getting into making my first modules for PW and i had a question for you PHP and PW gurus in here.

      I was wondering how i could use an external library, lets say TwitterOAuth in my PW module.
      Link to library

      Would the code below be correct or how would i go about this:
      <?PHP namespace ProcessWire; /* load the TwitterOAuth library from my Module folder */ require "twitteroauth/autoload.php"; use Abraham\TwitterOAuth\TwitterOAuth; class EyeTwitter extends WireData,TwitterOAuth implements Module { /* vars */ protected $twConnection; /* extend parent TwitterOAuth contructor $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access_token, $access_token_secret); */ public function myTwitterConnection ($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret) { /* save the connection for use later */ $this->twConnection = TwitterOAuth::__construct($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret); } } ?> Am i on the right trail here or i am barking up the wrong tree?
      I don´t need a complete solution, i just wonder if i am including the external library the right way.
      If not, then give me a few hint´s and i will figure it out.

      Thanks a bunch.

      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
      As of 11 May 2019 ProcessWire versions earlier than 3.x are not supported
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
