    Hi all,

    first of all: Thanks to Studiopress for their great work. I saved some money to get the Streamline Theme, which I use for my blog, now. It’s awesome and even I’ve not many readers, yet, they all told me, how great it’s looking.
    So, this is more a support question than a bug report. I hope someone can help me.

    Streamline has this orange Newsletter Header which I like a lot. Now, I try to put in their the Jetpack: Blog Subscriber – Widget.

    But as you can see in the Screenshot, it’s not working like it is in the Streamline example. http://www.peerewju.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/subscriber_newsletter_header.jpg

    Does anyone has an idea how to make it work? I copied the html from the primary sidebar but then the php subscription is not working correct. So I have to implement the Subscriber Widget, not only the produced HTML of it.  Is there any plugin available to edit the wordpress blog subscription?

    I like to use it because it’s comfortable, not like subscribe2 for example, which is not working for me.

    Thanks anyone for any helpful hint.

    Hi Jan, I don’t know this for a fact, but I think you probably need to use the Genesis eNews Extended plugin and widget to do this. All the Genesis themes I’ve seen are using this plugin to serve blog subscriptions. You can find out more about the plugin here:

    and the download can be found here:

    Hope this helps!

    Warmly,
    Jeni

    Hi Jeni,

    thanks for your help. The Plugin seems to be a nice one. Just installed it and then unfortunately noticed that it is not working for me. As I understand it right I need to register at feedburner to use it, right?

    I like the wordpress-subscription-widget a lot – which connects followers with their wordpress-account. You know which one I mea? Is there a plugin available to customize the registration fields?

    I hope it is understandable which kind of follower/subscription modul I mean.

    Thanks for any help!

    kind regards, Jan

    Hi Jan,

    You can use eNews Extended to subscribe to a number of services, including MailChimp, MadMimi, Feedburner, Feedblitz, and others. The “magic” is in the extra fields Brandon has added to the bottom of the widget.

    I just found a page where he lists tutorials on how to integrate it (through CSS) into different Genesis themes:

    Hi Jeni, hi all,

    finally I get it done by using the Newsletter-Plugin Wysija. In addition I installed the plugin Magic Boxes to create the formular like I want to have it.

    Thanks a lot for your help!
