phpList version 3.0.x - Code Enhancements

These Code Enhancements or hacks are documented here purely for my own benefit. That said if they are of any use to you in enhancing either your UX factor or your mass emailing solution then by all means feel free to download and incorporate into your site.

All code enhancements have been tested and working within normal parameters from v2.10.16. through to 3.2.5 though not all are available for download. This has primarily come about after I mentioned on the forum that I had written an enhancement that allowed the inclusion of Placeholders in the system generated messages sent out to new subscribers and I was slapped down for telling porky pies by the developers. Two years later they finally worked out how to do it.

Do not forget to backup both your database and the files that will be modified .
