Our Floating Tab and Quick Install Shortcodes

The most popular implementation of the Newsletter Signup form plugin places a callout tab overlay onto the margins of your website so that it’s visible on every page. The callout Newsletter Signup form tab, using “Newsletter” as the default text (although there are options for additional text), opens up the hosted Newsletter Signup form created by this plugin.
