FanBridge WordPress Plugin

It’s here! It’s here! We’ve built an email signup plugin for WordPress. Gone are the days of struggling to embed a FanBridge signup form on your WordPress-powered website or blog. The FanBridge Signup plugin for WordPress is easy to use and available to all FBers. Here’s how it works:

1. Download the plugin

The easiest way to do this is to access your WordPress admin dashboard, click plugins on the left, select “Add New” and then search for FanBridge. Want the direct link? You can also download the plugin here. Just follow the instructions under Installation to properly install.

2. Setup your form

The FanBridge WordPress plugin can be edited by going to Settings > FanBridge Signup in your WordPress admin dashboard. To activate your form, you’ll need your FanBridge User ID. This number can be found by logging into your FanBridge account and clicking on “My Account” in the upper right corner. Your ID will be at the top of this page.

3. Customize!

Now it’s time to make this form your own. Choose a title for the top, customize the color settings, and pick the data fields you’d like to collect and/or require. You can also turn on a “Guess Zipcode” feature. This will automatically collect a fan’s zipcode based on their IP address, just like your Fan Action Page.

4. Add your form

FanBridge Signup will be under “Active Widgets.” Drag the box to the part of your blog where you’d like to add the form, like the sidebar section on the right.

 

That’s it! Easy, right? Download the FanBridge WordPress Widget now and start collecting emails on your blog.

    You should make it clear in your instructions that this only applies to blogs that use WP on a private host.  If you use WP.com (ie free), this widget isn’t available.

    The Fanbridge Signup plugin is a life-saver!  But would it be possible to include an option for selecting different *groups* within a given account?  My client has three different possible mailing list groups under the same id, and the plugin doesn’t give me a way to offer those options right now.

    Do these widgets work with Blogger?
