There are many way for blogger to get email from their readers. One of them is with email subscription. There are also many way to place email subscription form on WordPress blog, e.g pop-up, widget, etc. To simplify the blogger’s work, there are many email subscription plugin available in WordPress.org directory, like Subscribe2.
Okay, if you have read the previous post about best WordPress widget, in this post I want to add another WordPress widget, it is Subscribe2. This plugin was made by someone who wrote it. Hehe, I don’t know who is the author. But I think the author was RavanH, CMIIW.
This plugin provides a comprehensive subscription management and email notification system for WordPress blogs that sends email notifications to a list of subscribers when you publish new content to your blog.
The subscriber is also can register to the blog which enable greater flexibility over the email content, they called Registered User. Admin can send notices to subscribers about new post, specific product, news, etc.
Subscribe2 Email Format
The format of the email can be customized. Subscribe2 can generate some format, they are
- plaintext excerpt
- plaintext full post (Registered Users only)
- HTML excerpt (Registered Users only)
- HTML full post (Registered Users only)
Widget enabled sidebar
If you want to place email subscription form on sidebar, you can enable it in Subscribe2 > Setting and then Appearance >> Widget. This is the only way to place the form in sidebar.
It seems that I forget to add links to Subscribe2 download page, okay, you can click here to download it.
But I remembered that I have added it in paragraph 2 -,- Ignore it
