    I downloaded the plugin, but I'm not understanding how to get the mail list image to actually appear on a page. Exactly what code has to be added to a page and where? Thanks so much.

    Do you want to display the form only with pages instead of everywhere?

    Yes. I only want to display it on our homepage for now.

    When I clicked the update file button, I got the following: Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/54/7665654/html/wp-content/plugins/mail-list/includes/front_form.php:49) in /home/content/54/7665654/html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 881.

    I'm not understanding what I'm doing wrong here.

    Delete whitespaces at the beginning and at the end of the code that you have pasted.

    Thanks. That worked for saving, but I still don't see the join email list at the bottom of my homepage. Any other suggestions?

    - Write you website url exactly in this form:

    $my_url="http://www.yoururl.com/";

    with slash at the end.

    - Clear cookies.

    That's what I have, but the editor is showing the file as inactive. I deactivated and reinstalled the plugin and made changes before activating the plug in this time and the file still says inactive.

    Use an FTP client to modify the file:

    public_html/wp-content/plugins/mail-list/includes/front_form.php

    I edited the file via my FTP editor on godaddy, but still no join email list at the bottom of the page. Do I have to add something that calls the addaction() function somewhere.

    Never mind. I see it, but on a different page. I must have the incorrect url somewhere.

    Sorry to bother you again, but I redownloaded the plug in and left everything as is and the join the mailing list box still only appears on one page. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Sorry i don't understand:

    this is not your purpose?

    Sorry, I didn't realize that there was a response. This was my original intent to display it on one page, but for some reason it displays on the wrong page. So I redid everything and thought that it would appear on every page, but it still only appeared on that one page. I'm not sure of the reason why?

    Hallo, print on screen the content of the variable $pageURL:
    echo $pageURL;
    then inspect in your page or check the html of the page to verify the content, then use that url in $my_url.

    Finally found what the issue is: "The Join the mailing list" shows up only on every web page that is a full page and none that use my other template. I'm assuming that the full page ones are the only ones that have footers. If a page doesn't have a footer, how can I get it to show across. The page is more along the lines of a small calendar section to the right of the main page.

    Inside your theme/template you can call the footer hook like this:
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    thank you so much for your help. One final thing, how to you change the successfully subscribed message because right now successfully is not spelled correctly on what I'm seeing. I'm not sure if I unintentionally changed it somewhere.

    Sorry i've never noticed that, i'm fixing now with 1.10

    Don't upgrade to 1.10 the plugin or you replace your personal/custom code.

    Edit this file:
    mail-list/includes/confirm_subscription.php
    and search for the "You are succesfully subscribed" string.

    Hi Dannycode. I have a problem and I don't know a lot about computer stuff, but.. I am trying to get my capture pages to work. they keep saying mailing list inactive when I try to opt into my capture pages.
    I checked my account it says it is active with no issues, but I don't know when my next payment is due so I'm thinking maybe I missed a payment and it just still says I'm active? I am really lst as to why t his happened.
    Please help me out thanks.
