Need help? Check out our Support site, then


Follow via E-Mail

  1. Hello WP,
    This is the first time I'm posting on the WordPress support forums. All I need is a tiny bit of help from anyone who understands what my query is.
    Most WP bloggers are no alien to the Follow via E-Mail widget, but I was wondering whether it is possible to setup an entire page for E-Mail follow.
    I earlier tried copy-pasting the code of the Widget to a new page on my blog but to no avail.
    This is the blog I need help with: The Techno Geeks! (http://thetechnogeeks.wordpress.com and my theme is Mystique.
    Looking forward to replys.
    Regards,
    Usman Jafri

    The blog I need help with is thetechnogeeks.wordpress.com.

  2. Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Firstly, I am not sure that my suggestion is the exact solution to your problem.

    You can create a contact form easily with the "add a custom form button" (http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/) on a new page and add the email adresses to the newsletter list manually.

    I don't use the follow widget and send newsletters manually to my friends, and by that way I can customize the look.

  3. You can set up email subscriptions by using this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/follow-blog-widget/

    If you would like a follow button to appear on the bottom right hand corner of your site for those who do not have WordPress.com accounts see here >

    Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/

    As unlusoycan indicates above you can customize the contact form with multiple fields, change the email address where you'll be notified, and mark feedbacks as spam from your dashboard. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

  4. Hello, thanks for the reply.

    I feel what unlusoycan indicates, is probably the closest possible solution to my problem.

    thistimethisspace, thanks for your suggestions, although, I'm already using the widget and follow button, I never knew of the Find Friends feature.
    Thanks again. :D
