WordPress – Subscribe to my newsletter checkbox

For the past two days, we shared about WordPress autoresponder plugin and how to redirect to thank you page after a comment has been made.In this post, I am going to tell you a different method. While commenting, probably you have seen a checkbox saying “subscribe to my newsletter”. If your visitors comment on your site and tick the checkbox, they will  be added to your email list easily.

I think every time, which WordPress plugin does this job like this?

I did a search in Google for “newsletter signup in comments” and found not good enough plugin for my needs. I am looking for more features like POPUP, Exit popup and newsletter checkbox within a single plugin.

Thank God I found a WordPress plugin called “WpSubscribers”.

I am very much amazed with WordPress plugin as it doubled my newsletter subscribers. In my Thesis Theme post, you can now see this checkbox with optin comments form.

Comment Checkbox WordPress

Few days back, I published a post about Best WordPress popup plugin.  Check it out for more features on wpsubscribers newsletter plugin.

Get this plugin here and activate it to your WordPress site. In other “Optin form” section, enable the Optin-comments and select your forms then click save changes.

You will see how easy it is to use this feature with these simple steps.

You can rename the title of checkbox, or do anything else like get free newsletter, get free updates, and instead of subscribe to my newsletter, on this Wpsubsribers plugin, you can also set the option as checkbox status in checked, not checked and checked and hidden(not recommended).

 Subscribe check box Status

Check subscribe to my newsletter form

If you set checkbox status as checked, during commenting it will show automatically checked (tick) condition. See the above screenshot.

It’s very easy for your visitors. They just enter the name and email address and comments. Your visitors need not tick the checkbox. With this you can increase your email list easily.

Subscribe to my Newsletter

If the checkbox status is not checked, you see the below image.

If you select checked  and hidden, the box will not appear. It’s not recommended you are forcing the user to subscribe.

I recommend you choose the first option and your list will increase.


Subscribing to list is easy.

Just one tick mark in checkbox.

Don’t wait. Visit the wpsubscribers home page here and get the WordPress Plugin.
