How to add a signup form

All of our themes allow you to easily integrate a sign up form for your mailing into your website. 

To add in a mailing list sign-up form, we recommend using a plugin called Genesis eNews Extended. This is one of the recommended plugins for this theme.

(Please note: Despite this plugin being called Genesis, it doesn’t require the Genesis framework to function.)

This plugin is compatible with some of the most popular email marking platforms including Mailchimp and ConvertKit.

Once you have installed and activated this plugin, hover over Appearance in the left-hand menu of WordPress and click on Widgets.

On the widgets page you will see two widget areas. The one we are interested in is the Sign Up Form widget area.

Click on the + icon to see a list of available blocks. Use the search bar to find the block called Genesis – eNews Extended and add this to the widget area.

The next step is to fill in your details. You can give your newsletter widget a title and add in some text to show either before or after the sign up form. Then you will need to fill in the rest of the details according to the mailing list provider you use.

If you are using Mailchimp, we recommend checking out this tutorial, and if you are using ConvertKit then this is the tutorial for you.
