PHPList Plugin

WebJunk PHPList brings PHPlist – to the WordPress world.
This plugin allows you to use a seperate installation of PHPList. We have integrated PHPList on over 500 websites.
This allows you to use PHPList with any other web application or even directly on the Internet. As a seperate install You can upgrade or reinstall WordPress with it never affecting PHPList. The version of PHPList is also not tied to a plugin. If needed you can move PHPList.
WebJunk PHPList displays the actual configurable subscriber page from PHPList so you are not limited to text only fields. Radio buttons, drop-downs are all possible. Anything used in PHPList directly will work within WordPress with this plugin.
Since PHPList is not dependant on WordPress at all, you can safely assign other administrators without having to assin them any privledges in WordPress.

    Where’s the documentation for this plug-in ?

  2. admin says:

    Its pretty straightforward in the Readme.txt.
    If there is something specific you need help with feel free to post in the Support forum on here. Also make sure you are using the newest version as the plugin was updated recently.

    The mailing list page that your plug-in creates shows the phplist subscriber menu form. Is there any way to directly show the subscribe page directly?

    • admin says:

      The Subscribe Page is what you want to fulfill the spam guidelines. Also realize you can customize the Subscribe Page completly from within PHPList.
      Might be able to add an option to set to another page but not high on the priority list. Have some non-standard PHPList features that I want to put in the next release of the plugin.

    If I have various people in subdomains each sending out emails on phplist I might need to throttle the whole lot to keep under the hostgator lime of 500/hour. Hostgator does not send info on the per hour so overloads just get dropped.
    Does this plugin address that? If not, your ideas.

      1. Locate the config file for your phplist installation.

      If you have installed the script on your domain with URL like then the physical path will be :


      In FTP you could see


      2. Download this file to your local PC.

      3. Edit the file in a text editor like notepad or wordpad.

      4. Locate the section called as “batch processing”.

      5. Edit the code section so its like this:

      # define the amount of emails you want to send per period. If 0, batch processing
      # is disabled

      # define the length of one batch processing period, in seconds (3600 is an hour)

      NOTE: This allows 50 emails to be sent from your account (450 + 50) per hour. If you website generates more than
      50 emails you need to decrease the batch size to a lower number.

  5. One other question about your plug-in: It apparently adds a link to in the subfooter of all the pages on my website. How can I turn this off?

    Thank you for a plug-in.
    By my opinion this is the greatest one :)

    If direct displaying spage is set up, than unsubscribe link do no show unsubscribe page within wordpress page, but outside (where phplist is installed).
    Unsubscribe page is only displayed in wp page if default, menu spage is displayed.

    Please, how can this be corrected?
    (it is not functional, but you know… :))

  7. Your plugin contains a cache directory that seems to grow without bounds with a large number of small files. What is the purpose of this? Is there any way to drastically reduce its size? It dramatically slows down my wordpress site backup process.

    Thanks for creating this plugin.
