    So, when members join, they can opt in to your newsletter. You want to use bbPress as sort of a member database. But the content you send out would not be bbPress topics and replies necessarily, but maybe something written by you, with links to topics in the forum you found interesting, or topics with no replies, or topics with lots of activity?

    Just trying to get a clear picture of what you want to do. Thanks.

    Hi Chris. I have an information website focused on a particular subject. With this newsletter I want to provide news/updates related to this subject. Most people participating in my website’s forums would likely be interested in receiving these updates via email.

    Thanks.

    Dan

    Would there be any content at all from the forums? The reason I ask is that instead of using bbPress for the newsletter, you could just sign people up for a newsletter service like AWeber if no content is from the forum. Under 500 subscribers is $19/month.

    There was also this recent discussion:

    Phplist is pretty good and a plugin could be written.

    I couldn’t find an adequate newsletter system for WordPress, so I wrote my own. It isn’t hard to set something up with swiftmailer and just query your mysql database to get the user info.

    You could use feedburner for your RSS, that comes with an email update option.
