    I have five WordPress blogs, hosted at HostGator. I know from prior experience, there is a widget that allows people to subscribe to the blog. In my version and hosting, it does not appear to be available.

    Can you direct me to how I can get this widget installed on my hosted site? I do not see a widget import feature and do not know how to get access to the widget.

    Thanks Esmi - I am not very technical. With the page you directled me to, do I simply need to cut and paste the code into one of the templates (via editor) or is there a file I need to load into my file directory or both?

    Any additional information or instruction would be great!

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Try just adding <?php wp_login_form( ); ?> to one of your theme's template files.

    Thanks Esmi. I added the php line of code. It did create a User Name and Password field as well as a log in button.

    What I was hoping to find was functionality that was more similar to the WordPress Subscribe to blog widget. I want to have a "Subscribe" button and a blank for an e-mail address. All they would need to do his put in an e-mail and hit subscribe and they would be stored in the subscriber list. It would also then notify them when a new post took place to the blog.

    Do you have other ideas or options around that?
