    I need the optin plugin to show up in a sidebar
    and am not seeing any option for this in the
    settings...

    there is an image and description of the download
    that the subscriber will receive..... in the
    sidebar area...

    I tried just sticking the short code into the
    widget where the signup form should be and
    it does not work

    Will appreciate it.... this seems like the
    (almost) perfect soluton. thanks

    To use the plugin in the side bar you will need to use the widget.

    In the main Admin area of WordPress go to the widgets section (it is within the Appearance section) look for the "Double Opt-In Signup" widget. Add to the sidebar, configure it and you should be good to go.

    Currently the widget does not have the ability to add an image to it. Although that is an excellent idea and I will work it into a future release

    If I misunderstood your question let me know.

    Hi Andy

    I have added the shortcode to a widget
    in the sidebar... just put it in with the
    message/image that were set up there

    I've also tried adding the shortcode to
    the DOI widget...

    still doesn't show up

    the widget sidebar for this site is the
    same on all pages...

    I'm a real newbie with WP... I can stumble
    my way around the dashboard ...not really
    proficient....

    does the shortcode have to go into the
    DOI widget?

    when I added the widget and looked for
    the download, the pdf that I'd uploaded
    to the media library didn't show up?

    I greatly appreciate your help.

    Tnank you many bunches

    Hi there,

    Shortcode(s) do not work in sidebars.

    You need to use the Double Opt-In Signup Widget. Drop and drag it to the sidebar that you want to use. See the directions I gave in the previous post.

    Don't use the media area for your downloads. You need to upload your download file within the plugin. Click on DOI-Downloads, then click "Downloads" You will then see the section where you upload your download. Once you have done that, then it will show up in the drop in the widget.

    It sounds like you are almost there... =)
