How to add subscription email form


A Subscription Email form is more important than a RSS feed Icon itself. People often love to receive your post Updates in their email inbox rather than in a reader. So make sure you make your Email From as eye appealing and eye catching as possible. So today we will again learn how to add an Email form, so lets get to work!

Follow these steps,
  • Log into your feedburner account
  • Click on the Publicize button and then click on Email Subscriptions link as shown below,
  • Then drag down the page until you see a HTML code, as shown below

Copy the HTML code for the email form and paste it in a WordPad or Notepad. The code may look like the one below,

<form style="border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;" action="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=TntByStc', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true"><p>Enter your email address:</p><p><input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email"/></p><input type="hidden" value="TntByStc" name="uri"/><input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US"/><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /><p>Delivered by <a href="http://feedburner.google.com" target="_blank">FeedBurner</a></p></form>


Please search for the Green and Red texts as shown above in the HTML code that you just pasted in a notepad or WordPad.

Note that the red text in your code will be something like this,

http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=Your-FeeD-Title

The end part of the URL above will contain your feed title, so look carefully for this URL in the code that you pasted in notePad

Now Log into your Blogger account and go to Layout > Page Elements

Then Click on Add a Gadget

Then Choose HTML/JavaScript

Now Copy and paste the code below into HTML/JavaScript widget.

<div style="border: 1px solid DodgerBlue; padding: 5mm;">
<center><img src="URL of Email Icon"/></center>
<span style="font-weight: bold;font-size:small;">Subscribe by E-mail & receive free updates of these cool Blogger eHow straight to your inbox!</span>
<form action="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" style="padding: 3px; text-align: center;" target="popupwindow" method="post" onsubmit="window.open('http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=TntByStc', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true"><center style="font-weight: normal">Enter your email address:</center><p><center><input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email"/></p></center><center><input type="hidden" value="TntByStc" name="uri"/><input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US"/><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /></form></center>
