I am trying to put a "mailing list" subscribe form into a Joomla module (having the sign-up be its own page is not very useful).

However, I am running into problems with qfKey. How can I generate a qfKey?

I can copy and paste the generated form html, but submissions can't happen without a valid qfKey in the form post.

Any other/better ways of doing this or is there a simple function I can call to generate a qfKey for mailing list sign up?

Thanks in advance, Joel


I don't think you can generate a qfKey - if I understand your question, using an html-snippet of a Profile that is set up with the Groups field may give you what you want.

  • I would like to display newsletter subscriptions in Joomla modules. If I use a profile, the user will get added to the group, but I don't think they will receive a double opt-in. – Joel Feb 26 '18 at 14:20
  • Double opt-in is a setting in civicrm at Admin > CiviMail > CiviMail component Settings - look for "Enable Double Opt-in for Profile Group(s) field" – petednz - fuzion Feb 26 '18 at 20:14
