newsletters?

  1. I wanted to add a newsletter, but then I read that plugins are not an option on wordpress.com. Is there anything we can use that would bring the same results?
    email me at [email redacted] please.

  2. You can set up an account with a newsletter service, and then add a link in your sidebar to your signup form using a text or image widget.

    Just let me know if you need further help.

  3. HI -- Is it possible to use something like this?

    https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/newsletter/

  4. No. Plugins cannot be used here.

  5. What are the best newsletter services that work with wordpress.com?
    thank you,
    Lynn

  6. You can use any third-party newsletter service you like, as long as they provide a standalone signup form that you can link to from your WordPress.com site, since we don't allow embedded signup forms here.

    Here's a suggestion. Register another WordPress.com blog that's strictly for publishing your newsletters in and set up a follow blog widget on it and a follow blog button.

    You can then create a cusom menu on your main blog and add the newsletter blog URL into the menu as an item by creating a custom link to it.

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

    For 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/

    Custom menu http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    add cusom link http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-custom-links

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
