Need to have newsletters default ticked

As title.

I have people stupid enough to just enter in their email and not tick. How to have all the tickboxes ticked by default?

Should it be standard default?


I solved this problem here:


I also hid the “checkbox” and the plain/html choice as well (with HTML being the default). If people are signing up, there is no need to display the name and the checkmark at all and the majority of people will select the html option.

In a nutshell, to have the checkbox marked by default, add “checked” as it appears below in red to the following template:

YourSkin/Customer/Addons/News and Emails/Blocks/Subscribe.tpl

{foreach from=$mailing_lists item=list}


Thank you very much
