Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Is it possible to remove the “by Email” subscribe option?

  • Resolved landstalker



    firstly I’m a long time customer, moving from the free PowerPress plugin and free stats to hosted BluBrry media (thanks for the easy migration from my own hosting).

    I wondered if it was possible to remove the “by Email” option on the subscription page?

    The reason I want to do this is for several reasons:

    1) The “by Email” option doesn’t go into my mailing list (Mailchimp), I cannot review the email addresses used and cannot remarket to them, for example if I ended up migrating or changing my podcast.

    2) I don’t want people to be confused that I keep talking about signing up to the mailing list on my podcast and then having two methods to subscribe by email.

    If it was possible to change the backend to mailchimp that would be fine, but as minimum removing that option would be great.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You can remove the Subscribe by Email option from appearing in the links below the media player, but you can’t remove it from either the Subscribe Widget or Subscribe Page.

    To remove it from below the player, go to the Website tab within PowerPress Advanced Mode settings and look for the Subscribe Links section. Uncheck the box next to Subscribe by Email and click the Save Changes button.

    Hello @shawnogordo,

    The option to remove it as well as on android and iTunes is on the feature TODO list. The options only need your RSS feed to work which is why we had them enabled by default.

    You can use CSS to hide the buttons, as they have unique CSS classes for each button.

    .widget_powerpress_subscribe .pp-ssb-btn.pp-ssb-email,
    .pp-sub-widget .pp-sub-btn.pp-sub-email { display: none; }

    Simply add this to your theme’s CSS file, or use a plugin that lets you add CSS inline to your pages.

    This should at least visually give you the result you want.




    Brilliant, thanks Angelo, that seemed to do the trick.

    I’d tried that before, or something similiar but without success.

    I’ve now added this into my “Additional CSS” options within the theme I use (part of Genesis Framework) and it removed that option.

    Thanks again
