How can we help?

Use a newsletter module to collect email addresses

On Skipperblogs you can activate the newsletter system to collect the email addresses of your visitors.

How does the system works

You can choose between different modules where to save email addresses. A module is where all e-mail addresses are saved. Either on Skipperblogs or on different online mailing services like Mailchimp, Sendinblue, ... You need to configure one of these module to start collecting e-mail addresses.

Once one of these modules is enabled, you add the newsletter widget to your site and wait for your visitor to submit their E-mail address. The address is then saved in the module and you can reuse it for your e-mailing.


Enable a newsletter module

Go to  DashboardModules Newsletter

You will find the list of newsletter modules (described below). You can only use one module at a time. If you decide to disable and enable another module, the email addresses present in the first will not be copied to the second. You will have to do this manually if necessary.


Skipperblogs module

Email addresses are saved on Skipperblogs in the Newsletter module. You can export them at any time in different file formats.

To use this module click configure and on the configuration page Enable the module. No further steps are required.
