We are pleased to announce the release of the FWDSendy plugin for Joomla. Sendy is a self hosted email newsletter application that lets you send trackable emails via Amazon Simple Email Service. This makes it possible for you to send authenticated bulk emails at an insanely low price without sacrificing deliverability.
With FWDSendy you can easily add subscription forms to your Sendy mailing lists anywhere on your Joomla site using a shortcode. This means you can add the form in articles, modules and other extensions just by adding the following syntax [sendy id=”1″] in your text. The id number is a reference to the Sendy list ID which you can configure in the plugin settings. It’s also possible to sign up users to multiple lists with a single form by using a comma list of ids [sendy id=”1,2,3″].
FWDSendy uses ajax to submit the form so it’s quick and doesn’t require page reloads.
