For this example of usage, we are going to create a subscription form to new posts. With the Jetpack plugin installed, in your admin area, head over to: Jetpack >>> Settings >>> Discussion >>> Subscriptions.
Now, let’s add the subscription shortcode. The basic version is this:
IMPORTANT: Surround the above with square brackets at the beginning and end of the above [ ]
and will show on your site like this:
Subscribe to Blog via Email
You can insert this shortcode on individual posts or pages, say at the bottom of your text, or you can add same globally by using a text widget to your site where desired. You can also change the display of the shortcode. Here’s an example:
jetpack_subscription_form title=”Subscribe” subscribe_text=”Enter your email to receive notifications when new posts have been added.”
Again, add the square brackets and the subscription form will look like this:
Pretty cool, huh.
