    Hello again all,

    I have been looking and looking and cannot find an answer to this query, am I using the wrong terms perhaps? I am new to all this. I hope that you can help please.

    Basically, I want people to get their friends to subscribe to my blog – and when their friends subscribe, I want them to add in the name of the person who referred them. I hope you understand what I mean?

    This is so that I can reward the people who have referred their friends!

    How can I dio this please? Any ideas? The ‘subscribe’ email does not ask for that information – can I alter this?

    Hope to hear from you soon

    Thanks so much in advance

    I don’t have a solution for you. What wordpress.com provides does not include what you want.

    Hello timethief,

    Perhaps setting up a contact form and asking all those subscribers who do refer others to you to use it when they do will be helpful. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/
