How To Put An Opt-In Box On Your Word Press Blog: Video Demo

One of the readers of this Blog Terri wanted to know how the wordpress blog can be used as a landing page and how the opt-in form can be setup on the page.

Here is a small video that shows how this can be done. We will talk about landing pages some other day on a different video.

  • Hi Srini,
    Great information. No fuss, clearly explained. Exactly what I was looking for and I will recommend your video to my readers.
    One question: I'm running WP 2.9.2 and the dashboard is a bit different. But I guess I'll just go to editor> sidebar.php> copy/paste the code.> update.
    Why do too many text widgets slow the page loading process down?
    Thanx very much.

    Yes, too many widgets do slow it down. But again that notion is becoming old too. With advancements in wordpress and hosting companies becoming wordpress friendly we will see this become a non issue in future.

    For now I would restrict my widget usage. This blog has no side widgets at all. :)-

  • My dashboard doesn't look like this. I can't find a design tab. Also is this the free hosted version of WordPress or does this need to be on a hosted site to put on an opt in box? thanks, Andrea

    Hi Andrea,

    Since the video was created and posted, there had been several upgrades to wordpress. The current wordpress version 2.8 interface looks completely different from the older versions such as 2.2.

    Looks like I need to upgrade this video. I will do that at the earliest.



  • thank you. did not know how to put my form in my blog and you show in a nice way.
    thanks one more time.
