I use an Autoresponder to require subscribers to my mailing list to "Activate" their subscription. This flags the subscriber as "Confirmed". (commonly called double opt-in)
I would also like to give new subscribers a coupon.
If you add a promotion to the Newsletter subscription - the coupon is given BEFORE the subscriber is confirmed.
When subscribers click the ACTIVATE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION link, I would like that link to send subscribers to an actual page in the store that thanks them for subscribing and displays a promotion. Currently this link (index.php?dispatch=newsletters.activate&list_id=1&key=xxxxxx&s_id=xxxx) will take them to the home page and run the Notification function that pops up a message.
app\addons\newsletters\controllers\frontend (line 77)
fn_set_notification('N', __('notice'), __('text_subscriber_activated'));
On a dedicated page, or new layout page, I can add a block or even just HTML, that will include a promotion and thank the subscriber for joining the list.
Any thoughts on this? I suspect that it's an easy modification to make, but I can't figure out what I need to do.
