    Hi,

    What is the difference between unsubscribe and disable subscriber.
    Also what exactly happens if you choose unapproved for a subscriber in list?

    I have some translation issues too.
    If I need to use foreign characters like öäü I have to use something like this to make it work: http://www.web2generators.com/html-based-tools/online-html-entities-encoder-and-decoder

    That is fine, but problem comes when I need to translate a field like this. (See image attached)

    If i just type öäü in, it will display nothing.



    Thank you!

    the easiest way is to use what people use when they write on keyboards without these characters:
    ä = ae
    ö = oe
    ü = ue
    this may not be the most beautiful solution, but it works under any circumstances, as all ASCII 0-127 is properly defined around the world
    ;)

    Thank you for the answer.

    However I really can't do something like this. It is very ugly, it would not work with my language and my clients think I might have a concussion.

    Is there any other solution :)?

    Thank you!

    try these
    http://www.periodni.com/unicode_utf-8_encoding.html
    http://www.ic.unicamp.br/~stolfi/EXPORT/www/ISO-8859-1-Encoding.html

    (and some fields may need even this)

    I had actually forgot that I have had this problem before and I solved it then.
    I used the html encoder, the link I first posted.

    If it didn't work, I used this: http://www.i18nqa.com/debug/utf8-debug.html

    And I pasted letters like this into the translation files:
    Õ - Õ
    õ - õ
    ö - ö
    ü - ü
    ä - ä

    Hope it helps someone.

    Thanks!

    Oh, one more question. With new update you can "disable" subscriber. What does it exactly do instead of regular unsubscribe?

    @Napoolion - The disable function is used when you don't want to remove a subscriber from the list, but just disable it temporary so that later you can easily enable it back.

    Hi,
    I have the same question as this person. So what is the difference with unsubscribe? We can also update to subscribe them back right?

    Another thing is, confirmed and unconfirmed... What's the difference between subscribe and unsubscribe?

    see here
    "confirmed" = if subscriber subscribed in single opt-in, or, if subscriber clicked confirmation link in double opt-in confirmation email
    "unconfirmed" = before subscriber clicked confirmation link in double opt-in confirmation email
    "subscribe" = see above re different "confirmed" status
    "unsubscribe" = nowadays usually only via direct one click unsubscribe link, but sometimes still double opt-out where unsubscribe link triggered unsubscribe email needs to be clicked
