    Try renaming the e-mail field name in the widget settings to “email” instead of “Email”. Aweber is not realizing that the form is submitting the e-mail address.


    Thanks for the fast reply.

    But no joy with the Email/email change.

    Any other suggestions? Thank you!

    Correction–that DID work! My changes weren’t saved the first time, but the plugin is working now.

    It seems a bit of a dirty trick for Studiopress to be touting your plugin as their nearly-official solution, and then sticking you with the tech support–but thanks! I owe you for the plugin and for the help.

    Good! StudioPress offered to take over if it ever becomes too much. They want to encourage the devs who make Genesis plugins and not push them out just because they built something better than what was already there!

    I’m kind of baffled as to why you would call this a dirty trick? Brandon created the plugin because there was a need for folks who wanted to use it outside of Feedburner. We recognized the hard work he put it into it and asked him if he planned on continued development and support of the plugin he created. When he said yes, we chose to deprecate the eNews and Update plugin that we had in Genesis, and told him we’d be recommending all of our users to use his plugin since it was so well built.

    We never “touted” it as our “nearly official solution”, and we were very transparent in our announcement post of the plugin.

    I would like to think that Brandon’s web traffic and his freelance business has increased as a result of the additional exposure he’s gotten.

    Not sure what makes this dirty.

    Hi, bgardner,

    I really meant it as a jokey compliment to the developer, since he was providing a free plugin which, for me, provided essential functionality missing from the paid theme.
