[closed] Inserting a subscription form in a wordpress website (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I tried installing WordPress but couldn't get past the second step. How do I choose a server? It's too confusing, I really don't speak this language! How do laypeople do it, because I'm definitely one of them.

    I have zero knowledge of coding, but I need to input a subscription form to Mailchimp in my page and the only way to do it, it seems, is downloading a plug in, after downloading the wordpress file, but I have zero idea on how to install it and use it and the guides aren't helping me at all.

    If I can't input the subscription form, why would I pay 18 USD to get a .com address? Sorry, just really frustrated. : (

    Cheers,

    Do you mind telling me who you're using for hosting? Many times hosting companies have a 'one click' install for WordPress.

    Thanks for replying!
    That's another big problem, I have absolutely no idea. Where could I see that?

    If you're looking for the easiest way to add the MailChimp subscription, I would set up a free account on WordPress.com.

    Then I would do this to add your subscription form: http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/how-to-add-a-mailchimp-signup-form-to-your-wordpress-blog.

    And if you want to add your own .com address later: http://store.wordpress.com/premium-upgrades/custom-domains/

    I hope that helps!

    That's my biggest problem: These links show ho to add a link to my subscription form, but I need a subscription form embedded on my website, so people can just write their emails and subscribe :( Mail Chimp has that code, but when I paste it as text widget on wordpress.com, the html disappears almost completely : (

    Hmmm, could you give me a link to your site so I can look at it?

    Currently it is not possible to add a subscription form to your WordPress.COM site. If you decide to do a self hosted WordPress.ORG site in the future, it is definitely possible to make that happen.

    Sorry :)
