I wrote a post recently on how to insert an Opt-in form on a WordPress blog with no sidebars.
It’s attracted a lot of views from people searching how to create an opt-in form on WordPress, so I figured a description of how to insert one in a blog that does have sidebars might be useful:
Step 1: Create your opt-in form in your Autoresponder service provider account.
You’ll need to make sure your opt-in box is not wider than the sidebar you’re planning on putting it into. So check that width before creating your opt-in form, and size it accordingly.
Step 2: Add a text widget to one of your sidebars
If you’re new to WordPress here’s a description of how to manage widgets.
Once you’ve added the text widget simply paste the code provided by your Autoresponder service provider into the window that will open as soon as you drop your widget into the sidebar.
Step 3: Save and close your widget.
Once you’ve pasted the code into your text widget click ‘Save’ (1 in the picture below) and then ‘Close’ (2 below).
And you’re all done.
