Help with the Opt-in plugin

    Hello, and thank you for reading my thread.

    I heard about this excellent plugin for collecting emails on your wordpress blog, and so I downloaded the Opt-in plugin from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-opt-in/installation/

    But I have no idea where to "upload the wp-opt-in folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder"

    What is all that??

    Thanks

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

  2. There is no FTP access to our free hosted WorPress.com blogs and we bloggers can't install plugins for security reasons. http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ Also note that there is no upgrade you can purchase that allows FTP access and the ability to install plugins. Only those with WordPress.org installs can use plugins http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. WordPress.com does have blog subscriptions. 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 >
    http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/09/21/more-traffic-for-your-blog-with-the-follow-button/

    You can set up a customized contact form http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ on a static page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ or in a text widget http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/ and above that form you can clearly state that you are asking for those who wish to have their email address "captured" to use it.
