    Hey guys, I am having a hell of a time finding some type of form I can insert into my sidebar so ppl can join my mailing list.

    I have a mass emailer program but just need a way to capture emails. Can anyone help?

    I tried WP Opt in plugin but it comes in as a widget and I cant place it where I want it in my theme. SO I guess I cant use that. But I am looking for something exactly like that.

    I dont want to pay for Aweber or anything similar. They are overpriced IMO.

    Thanks in advance.

    All you need to do is generate the html from your autoresponder and paste it into the post body and then you will have an opt in box.

    you can get a free account with GetResponse. all of the features, but only 1 "campaign" (list) and 5 follow-up (sequential) emails...still have manual broadcast though.

    upgrade to a paid account after you have some $$ coming in.

    Sorry, didn't read the last part of your post. You can get a free autoresponder with many other IM tools at zoho.com. I use it all the time, works like a charm!

    This is what I use. It's free.

    Code:

    I just noticed, it says in the description it goes in the sidebar but it generates code you can put wherever you want.

    Thank you, this is exactly what I need!!! I noticed that this comes in as a widget. When I bring in a widget it comes in at the bottom of my sidebar.

    Here is a site I am developing....you can see all the other items in the sidebar. Those are not widgets. They are just coded within the stylesheet. When I bring a widget in, it comes to the very bottom.

    DO you know if there is a way to bring the widget to the top?



    You can see another opt in widget I was trying to use. Notice it is at the bottom of the sidebar. There is no code for this thing in the sidebar.php file..because its a widget??

    This looks promising too. DO you have a direct link to the autoresponder tool? Cant seem to find it...I found a contact form.

    Take it out of the sidebar. Just cancel or delete the widget. To put the signup form at any place on your post or page, use this shortcode:

    [gsom-optin]

    It's in the "read me" file.
