Unsubscribing from the Newsletter

Every email sent through the Brilliant Directories platform must include a link that allows recipients to opt out of the website's mailing list. When this link is clicked, the email recipient will be directed to the website with the "/unsubscribe" extension appended to the URL. For instance, find this link at http://www.demobootstrap.com/unsubscribe.

The email recipient will be automatically placed in the "unsubscribed" list to cease receiving emails from the website. 

Each email that is added to the unsubscribe list will show in the View Contacts: 

It is possible to sort unsubscribers by using the Sort Order Filter, the options are:

  • Order by Newest First
  • Order by Oldest First

**Important note: This functionality is part of the Export Member Data addon, to purchase this addon, please follow this link:
