I am a newbie in Drupal. I recently upgraded a site from D6 to D7. The site used simplenews module. So i got the D7 equivalent and installed it. After enabling the module i find the following issues -
1) The newsletter page does not display the subscription area any more. Earlier the newsletter page asked the user to fill in the name and email and subscribe/unsubscribe radio boxes and a save button. When i am logged in as admin i only get the username and a unsubscribe button.
2) When i compare the simplenews folder then i find out that the earlier version has a simplenews_action folder which I dont have in my D7 version.
3) The site previously also used the simplenews_realname module which helped to retrieve names and emails of individuals if an export option was tried. What should i do for this since I could not find a simplenews_realname version for D7.
4) I opened EDIT for the newsletter page to find out the following for the simplenews code.
<p class="content"><!--?php $block = module_invoke('simplenews','block','view',27); print $block['content']; ?--></p>
so i changed it to this -
<p class="content"><?php $block = module_invoke('simplenews','block_view',27); print render($block['content']); ?></p>
But this also didn't solve the purpose. How can i fix this simplenews problem. Any sort of help is deeply appreciated.
