Opt-in field in the heading

  1. Hi -
    I really want a header with an opt-in so visitors can fill in their email address so I can build my list. For example: "Fill in your email address and get a free dvd"?

    If not now, are there any plans to have headers like this in the future?

    Best regards
    Suzanne

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

  2. No there isn't anything like that that I'm aware of in the works.

    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 >

    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/

    To offer a bribe in order to get an email address all you have to do is type the text into a text widget and display it at the top of your sidebar.

  4. Thanks for answering.

    If you don't mind helping one more time...could you go in to http://www.liveyourmessage.com/ and look at what she has done with the opt-in? that's what I mean. Is that even possible with wordpress.com or would I have to have wordpress.org?

  5. No you can't do that on a WordPress.com blog.
