The announcement list feature is very well made, and very customizable with all the custom URLs you can specify so that users will see pages on your website rather than generic ones from the Dreamhost list scripts. But I found that there are two URLs that I can’t customize:
1: When I add new addresses to an existing list, these new subscribers will get an e-mail with a URL to click on, in order to accept the subscription. This URL can’t be specified anywhere, so the user just gets a very generic page on a not-my-domain URL, in the form of http://scripts.dreamhost.com/add_list.cgi?g=sRxSiYxTlNPn58Q
2: Also, if a user clicks the link in their confirmation again later, there’s the same URL but another generic message (“Form Submission Error”), which I also can’t customize or personalize.
I would love to have these list-management URLs point to my own domain (so that users don’t think they are being hoaxed into weird lists but instead recognize the URL as part of my domain) – or at least it would be nice if I could personalize the appearance of the displayed page, even if it’s not on my domain.
It would be nice to give users a link to my homepage or something - anything - rather than just a dead end.
Ideas, suggestions, comments??
