Genesis eNews Extended


Creates a new widget to easily add mailing lists to a Genesis website. Recommended plugin in virtually all Genesis theme tutorials. The widget allows the site administrator to set either the Feedburner ID or form action, e-mail form field and hidden fields to mimic the subscribe form of other mailing list services.

Dank je wel.

Een speciale dankzegging voor iedereen die heeft bijgedragen aan Genesis eNews Extended.

  5. Controleer of dit werkt.


Welke diensten werken met deze plugin?

Feedburner, MailChimp, Aweber, FeedBlitz, ConvertKit, and Constant Contact are confirmed to work, but it should work with almost all services. If you have tested this with other services, please contact me

How do I get the privacy policy link to show? The checkbox isn’t working.

Genesis eNews Extended uses WordPress’ built-in privacy policy setting. Be sure you have a privacy page set at wp-admin/privacy.php .

De “Open in hetzelfde tabblad”-mogelijkheid werkt niet met FeedBurner. Wat gaat er verkeerd?

Dat is expres. Je wilt niet bezoekers van je site kwijtraken en ze op FeedBurners site laten steken.

De voor- en achternaamvelden zien er raar uit.

Ik heb hulp nodig! Waar kan ik dat krijgen?

“Official” tutorials will be maintained on the plugin’s website.

Hi. I am loving this plugin, used with MailChimp. The reason is that it does not use APIs. Then, it works perfectly in any circumstance, just passing data to MailChimp by the Form Action. Instead, using the MailChimp API, it is possible to have some limitations. For example, if you deleted a user profile on MailChimp, it is not possible for that user to subscribe again via API, using the same email. Thank you very for this plugin. 🙂

We've been using this for years, and over the past few months have noticed dozens of .ru subscribers being added to our mailing list every week. That stopped when we replaced this plugin with a different form builder, so I suspect there's a bot out there targeting it. Check your subscribers list.

Very disappointed with the plugin and the genesis theme in general. I used the plugin for a opt-in form on my website and it just looked a mess in the sidebar. I was a youtube video of this plugin being used two year ago and the template now is nothing like it was then. Another thing, if you are using mailchip you get a double opt-in option and there isn't a way to change that. I'm sure a subscriber wouldn't like to have enter there email twice. Just disappointing. 🙁

I love the simplicity of this plugin. Just read the form code from the service you're using, make sure you put in the action and the field names (precision is crucial) and you're good to go! Then you will need to set up, at the service itself, the pages for the confirmations and other notices.

As a preimium Gravity Forms users, this is the plugin I prefer using for email subscription forms. It's straight forward, easy to plug-in your MailChimp data, and much easier to style. Simple. To the point. No bloat. I wish more plugins were like this.
