[resolved] Looking for email subscription widget (8 posts)

    I have a wordpress site on its own server (not wordpress.com) and I'd like to find a widget that allows people to subscribe to a blog just by clicking an "Email Subscription" button in the sidebar. Preferably I'd like the exact same "Email Subscription" widget that exists on wordpress.com, but I can't find it in the list of widgets and plugins that are available for download.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Have you tried FeedBurner?

    No, but I don't want feeds for now, and I'd rather have something directly integrated into wordpress. I just want something where people can enter their email address and subcribe to new updates in the blog.

    FeedBurner can do that for you.

    Duly noted, I'll look at it if I can't find the widget I mentioned in my OP. Is that available anywhere for download?

    Still looking for something here. I tried subscribe2 but that totally isn't what I want (unless I missed something. I don't want to have to set up a separate page where people have to go to in order to subscribe, I want it just to be there in the sidebar).

    This is what I'm looking for: I want there to be form on the sidebar in which people can enter their email address, and I want there to be a button to click beneath or above it that says "email subscription" (or whatever I want), and when they do that they'll get an email alert whenever a new post is added to the blog.

    Surely there's got to be something like this out there? What do others use for it?

    I missed something :). subscribe2 does have a sidebar subscription widget, and it seems to work for what I want it to do.
