KenDude, you are the man!

I just came here to report that I'm having the same problem and that it's consistent. I'll try your solution.

Did my solution work for you?

Morgan, did you see what the issue was in my case? I never saw if you read this topic and solution or not.

Yes - it now seems to be working correctly. New registrants now have the option displayed and the default is "Yes".

Yes, 'usergroups allowed to subscribe' is the one option I didn't think to have you check. It controls what usergroups can subscribe, and if it is unticked for a certain usergroup, then that newsletter is not available to that usergroup, regardless of the 'default to subscription' option. The 'usergroups allowed to subscribe' option doesn't give 'unregistereds' any special power, other than the ability to tick boxes upon registration. The two options work like this: default to subscription for newsletters that are active, both active as in overall active and active as in available to that usergroup. It is a per newsletter setting and not something that'll get changed, as certain newsletters may only be available to certain usergroups, so for those newsletters you wouldn't necessarily want a tick box on the registration or usercp pages, nor would you want to 'default to subscription' if the usergroup cannot subscribe in the first place.

Understood Morgan, I just think that if you don't have the 'unregistereds' checked that they ought to get some sort of warning or display that new members will not be allowed to sign up for that newsletter, since we both overlooked that, and others like Minstrel made the same mistake, it would seem that it may be a common mistake and something you'll want to draw a little more attention to in further releases. But please don't let it stop you from getting Geekmart out the door!

Just for your information, if you moderate new registrations you need to allow "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" to subscribe.

Ok, I got it. But it may be an idea to make this better clear in the installation instruction or even better if creating a new newsletter a message underneath "usergroups allowed to subscribe". (As on screenshot)
Thanks for your support.
