    Currently I use the subscribe and RSS widgets and it just takes up more space than i’d like it to. So i’ve created a custom menu with links for the RSS feed which was easy but how do i go about creating a link to add the subscription?

    I took a look at the button source… which is as follows..

    <form action=”http://subscribe.wordpress.com” method=”post” accept-charset=”utf-8″ id=”subscribe-blog”>
    <p>Click to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.</p>

    <input type=”hidden” name=”action” value=”subscribe”/>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”blog_id” value=”12000032″/>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”source” value=”http://jrich523.wordpress.com/”/>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”sub-type” value=”widget”/>

    <input type=”hidden” id=”_wpnonce” name=”_wpnonce” value=”cc390ce69c” /><input type=”hidden” name=”_wp_http_referer” value=”/” />
    <p><input type=”submit” value=”Sign me up!” /></p>
    </form>

    I tried to create a link like so

    http://subscribe.wordpress.com/?action=subscribe&blog_id=12000032&source=http://jrich523.wordpress.com&sub-type=widget

    but, i cant get it to work.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Justin
