WordPress Subscriber plugin with Feedburner

Yes, you can use FeedBurner to send automatically an email to people who want to follow you. and there are plenty of cool options if you know how to use them, here is a quick tutorial and demo for it.

First you need to configure Feedburner ( now a part of Google.com ), it’s cool as it is a free service

Login to Feedburner , you will see the list of your feeds

Click on the feed you want to promote

in this sample : Brainfight

Go to the tab : Publicize, then Email Subscription

Activate the Email subscription so it will create the form you will be able to import to WP Subscribers

it generates the form :

<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=Brainfight’, ‘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=”Brainfight” 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>

Then you can finally go in your WPSubscribers and paste to detect the fields and form adress in the setup opt-in Code section of the plugin :

You will need to fill manually the values, compared to the source code generated

Form Action URL:   ->   http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify
Form EMAIL field:  ->  email

and the most important is to fill correctly :

Hidden fields: ->

<input type=”hidden” name=”uri” value=”Brainfight“>
<input type=”hidden” name=”loc” value=”en_US”>

Check the result in WPSubscribers , it should look like this

As usual, save, configure the optin and test
