Description

When I try to sign up for the newsletter at newsletter.torproject.org, the confirmation link that I get in my email is for donate.torproject.org, not newsletter.torproject.org.

To me this feels like a bait-and-switch, where I asked to receive news and suddenly I'm going to be on some donation rolodex.

I guess we used the donate site because it was easier to run the newsletter software there? How hard would it be to separate them? Or at least to send URLs for newsletter, and have that redirect behind the scenes?

Hi,

This is a work in progress.

So before, upon making a donation you could decide to be subscribed to the newsletter. So that page lives in the donate.tpo domain.

Now we have a newsletter but the subscriptions are still managed by civi that uses the donate.tpo domain for handling everything.

Of course we want to change this, but it will take a little longer.

the reason is that the action URL for the form on newsletter.tpo points to donate.tpo
