Follow via E-Mail
This is the first time I’m posting on the WordPress support forums. All I need is a tiny bit of help from anyone who understands what my query is.
Most WP bloggers are no alien to the Follow via E-Mail widget, but I was wondering whether it is possible to setup an entire page for E-Mail follow.
I earlier tried copy-pasting the code of the Widget to a new page on my blog but to no avail.
This is the blog I need help with: The Techno Geeks! (http://thetechnogeeks.wordpress.com and my theme is Mystique.
Looking forward to replys.
The blog I need help with is thetechnogeeks.wordpress.com.
Hello and welcome to the forums!
Firstly, I am not sure that my suggestion is the exact solution to your problem.
You can create a contact form easily with the “add a custom form button” (http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/) on a new page and add the email adresses to the newsletter list manually.
I don’t use the follow widget and send newsletters manually to my friends, and by that way I can customize the look.
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 >
Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/
As unlusoycan indicates above 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/
Hello, thanks for the reply.
I feel what unlusoycan indicates, is probably the closest possible solution to my problem.
thistimethisspace, thanks for your suggestions, although, I’m already using the widget and follow button, I never knew of the Find Friends feature.
Thanks again. :D
