    Define “work well”. And please include a link to your site with all questions so that people can see what is going on.

    What do you mean that it doesn’t link to your email?

    To put it on every page you’d need to move the function out of home.php into functions.php

    You can access home.php and functions.php from Appearance=>Editor but I highly recommend using an FTP client and a code editor to edit the files from your server.

    I don’t know how the Generate Box plugin works but there is a tutorial on setting up Generate here. You need to replace the example form code with the form code from whichever service you are using for your mailing list, e.g. Feedburner, Aweber, Mailchimp, etc.
