Hey there,

I want to use the Mail Chimp integration with my Newsletter form on Joomla 3.8.6. I need to enable double opt in (, since 100% of the users are from Germany.

I added the API-Key and the form works - but only with single opt in.

Is it possible to use double opt in with BaForms and how? Has anybody done this before?

Thank you very much!

Best W

This is my way how I get double opt-in in Forms to work for me:
Open the file form.php in the ftp directory with a texteditor: components/com_baforms/models/

When its open, search for "subscribed" and edit to "pending" and save it again to the ftp folder

The whole text in the file will be like this:

$array = array(
'email_address' => $email_address,
'status' => 'pending',
'merge_fields' => $merge_fields

Regards from Germany ;)
