The Genesis eNews Extended widget is used to display a form in your sidebar widget area for your readers to subscribe to your mailing list.
Go to Appearance > Customize > Widgets > Sidebar to add a Genesis eNews Extended widget.
Configure the widget settings:
- Title: Add a title (optional).
- Text to show before form: Add text that you would like displayed above the form. For example, this text can include a brief explanation of what subscribers can expect when they join your email list.
- Text To Show After Form: Add text that you would like displayed below the form. For example, you can add a disclaimer stating that you won’t share your subscriber’s email address.
The next section includes the fields that connect your form to your subscription service of choice (Mailchimp, ConvertKit, etc). Visit this page for instructions specific to your subscription service.
The bottom section allows you to change the text that displays in the form fields, as well as changing the text of the submit button. These labels are what your visitors will see when they view the subscription form.
Click Done and then Publish your changes.
