Other people's email widget (4 posts)

    What widget or something else, can I use to get people's email that would work well with your theme... I want either a simple widget at the side to say, if you want to get an email every time I post please subscribe here, or maybe something more flashy at the top like a banner that will pop up to say subscribe here..

    Most widgets work with the default wordpress post that we built in class, but how do I make it work with the custom posttype that I made for my food blog?

    Jetpack has a widget for that called "subscribe by email" or something like that.

    So, will it work when I post stuff using my custom posttype or just the built-in post?

    For notifying followers, it will only send out notifications for new posts.

    This is what the jetpack documentation says:
    "Jetpack Subscriptions will only send out notifications for new posts. Publishing other post types (Pages, a Custom Post Type, etc) or updates of already published posts will not send a notification e-mail."

    (This info is right at the bottom of that documentation page)
