Setup email subscription (2 posts)

    Hello gang,

    I'm using Subscribe2 plugin v 6.3 with WP 3.1.2. The plugin is awesome and it just flat out works. I like the ability to send messages to subscribers, manually enter new subscribers and some of the flexibility that comes with the plugin. I'd like to setup a way for users/browsers that come on my site to be able to subscribe to my blog via email. I'm want to add an email icon on my main page along with other social media icons, a user clicks on that icon, then is taken to a dialog box or form to enter their email address and name. I can get 'under the hood' with the code (a little), but not sure how to set this up. The point is a clean, attractive interface, with a way to access a subscription form. The Subscribe2 subscription form isn't that 'pretty'. At least, not from what I've seen.

    Also, is there some kind of feed address I need to enter? Anyone out there doing something different? Tell me your thoughts if you've got a better solution.

    If you want a link from your front page create a WordPress page containing the subscribe2 form and then link to this with your email icon.

    If you want to pretty up the Subscribe2 for use CSS - with the correct use of div tags around the Subscribe2 token the 'look' of the form can be totally customised.
