- Updates & Support
Want to create WordPress newsletters directly on your site? If you aren’t sending very many emails, you can send newsletters with MailPoet instead of a service like MailChimp. Create newsletter signup forms in Formidable, and those who submit the form will be added to the newsletter lists.
Download and install
- If you haven’t already done so, install and activate Formidable Forms.
- Install the MailPoet plugin.
- In your WordPress admin, go to Formidable → Add-Ons and click the Install button for the Formidable MailPoet plugin for WordPress newsletters.
Now that the MailPoet and Formidable MailPoet newsletter plugins are activated, set up a form to add users to a newsletter.
- Go to the form settings page for the form you will be using to subscribe users to a newsletter list. Click on Settings → Actions & Notifications → MailPoet.
- Select the MailPoet list that you would like to add subscribers to. Select the Email Address, and any other required options. If you add custom fields on the MailPoet → Forms page, they will also appear in your MailPoet form action.
- Trigger this action when: Select ‘Entry is created’ if you would like the user to be added to the newsletter list when they submit the form.
- Send confirmation email: This enables double opt-in. If turned on, new subscribers will receive a confirmation email with a link to activate the newsletter subscription. If the link is not clicked, the subscriber will remain ‘unconfirmed’ and will not receive any newsletters. Learn more in the MailPoet docs.
- Send welcome email: If you are using the premium version of MailPoet 3, you have the option of sending a welcome email. Learn more about this from the MailPoet team.
- Conditional logic can be used to add a user to the newsletter list only if specific conditions are met. Please note that Conditional Logic is only available in the Pro version of Formidable Forms.
