I have a website for my movie in which I want to create a "Subscribe to Mailing List" option which adds e-mail addresses to a database. I'm trying to figure out a solution for that feature and maintain my database. I also want to include an "unsubscribe" link on the mass e-mails that I send out. I realize there are monthly paid e-solutions like Constant Contact, but I was wondering if I could use Address Book, Mail, and some other Mac software to accomplish this goal. I'm also considering making another project's website using Rapidweaver 4. Any info would be much appreciated!
You can accomplish this a number of different methods, however if you're going to custom build this, I'd suggest using MySQL for the database and PHP for the scripting. It's going to take a bit of leaning before you can do it fully but using these technologies it's pretty straight forward.
This is great info Abraham! I assumed their were some serious web tools for this, and I always wondered what MYSQL and PHP were. I will pass this on to my web designer. She's knowledgeable about graphics design but not so savvy on the technical backbone stuff.
