How to Configure the eNews Subscription Widget
All of our themes use the Genesis eNews Extended plugin. This plugin connects your website to the email subscription service of your choice. If you've been following the Pretty Darn Cute Design blog for any amount of time, you've likely heard me preach how important it is to build your email list before you put energy into social media platforms. To sum up, you want full control, and social media outlets have the power when it comes to retrieving data.
Pretty Darn Cute Design uses and highly recommends ConvertKit to handle your subscription services. The linked tutorial below will show you how to add your ConvertKit, or subscription service of your choosing, to the eNews widget.
Configure the eNews Widget
- Add your incentive text (e.g. "sign up for updates") in the Text to show before form field
- Follow the setup instructions for your third party subscription service - ConvertKit, Feedburner, MailChimp, MailPoet etc. - to determine which fields to complete. Some services use "form action", while others use "hidden fields". Don't forget to select Save when complete.
