Adding a newsletter sign-up form

Ruby comes with pre-stylings included for the MailChimp for WordPress plugin.

If you don't know how to install and configure your MailChimp account, follow this page.


If you would like your newsletter sign-up form to look just like Ruby's LIVE DEMO, you can go to your WordPress Dashboard - Appearance - Widgets, select the MailChimp newsletter widget, and add it to one of the sidebars (Sticky Sidebar for example).

Then, go back to your WordPress Dashboard, choose MailChimp for WP - Forms, like on the screen below:

In the big white area, replace the code you see within with the following code instead:

<h5>Stories & Tips to make you
a better designer</h5>
<p>
    <input type="email" name="EMAIL" placeholder="Your email address" required />
</p>
<p>
    <input type="submit" value="Sign up" />
</p>
<small>One email every Sunday. No SPAM.</small>

It should look like on the screen below:

If you have set everything according to the instructions, your newsletter will look like this:

And that's it!
