Plug-In Request

  1. It would be GREAT if there was an automatic Plug-In feature for Aweber incorporated into WordPress - for those of us who have our Domain Names hosted by Aweber, this would enable us to easily add Email Sign-Up Forms to our WordPress Blog Sites!

    Thank You,
    Jason Sink

    The blog I need help with is whoisjasonsink.com.

  2. At the present time what you can do is get the external page link from Aweber for subscribing and then you can link to it.

  3. But how is forcing someone OFF of my Blog Site by linking them to an Aweber page just to sign up for future Blog posts supposed to INCREASE sign-ups?!
    Do you know WHY WordPress changed the Plug-In feature that they used to have?
    THANK YOU for the feedback, by the way! ; )

  4. I have been here for 8 years answering questions. I predate the support docs and almost every Staff member even being on Staff. There has not ever been a time when WordPress.COM blogs have had FTP access and blogger installed plugin capability. That is what's provided on WordPress.ORG installs only. Please read all the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.com has a separate follow blog subscription service. You can set up email subscriptions here > Appearance > Widgets > Follow Blog Widgets 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 go to > Settings > Reading and scroll down to Follower Settings:

    These settings change emails sent from your blog to followers.
    Logged out users __ Show follow button to logged out users.

    Checking this will present a follow button to logged out users in the bottom corner of their screen.

    Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/

    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/

    I offered a temporary Aweber workaround above applicable to WordPress.COM blogs but if you do not wish to use it that's okay. If you examine the frequency with which the suggestions made here in the Ideas Forum are pursued you will not hold your breath while waiting. If this is a deal breaker for you then you will hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting and set up your own WordPress.ORG install. Best wishes whatever you decide to do.
