Subscribe Block

The Subscribe Block allows you to insert a subscription form within any post, page or widget area, enabling your readers to get notifications when you publish new posts.

Requirements

To use the Subscribe Block, you must enable Jetpack’s Subscriptions feature in Jetpack Settings Discussion.

Adding a Subscribe Block

You can add a Subscribe Block to any post, page or widget area by selecting it from Jetpack’s Subscribe section of the block picker:

Block Toolbar

If desired, the width of the Subscribe Block can be set by clicking the wide-width or full-width icons.

Block Settings

The Subscribe Block has five options for controlling the appearance of the block.

Styles

You can choose either the Compact or Split style.

Compact shows the form without space between the text field and the button:

Split shows the form with a space between the text field and the button:

Color

With the Color menu, you can change the button background, text, and border colors. Either choose from one of the defaults, or define your own custom color.

Typography

Typography includes preset and custom sizing for all of the text in your Subscribe Block.

Border

Use the Border menu to change the border on the form itself. Make the edges softer by adjusting the radius, and the line thicker or thinner by changing the weight.

Spacing

With the Spacing menu, you can adjust the amount of spacing around the text in the block. You can also add more or less space between the email address entry box and the button.

Settings

You can enable the Show subscriber count setting to display your total number of subscribers alongside the form.

If you enable the Include social followers in count setting, your followers from all the social networks you’ve connected to Jetpack Social will be included in the total number of subscribers displayed.

The Place button on new line setting will place the Subscribe button underneath the form.

Use the Success Message field to change the success message shown to the user after they click the Subscribe button. They will still receive a confirmation email.

Additional CSS Class

This allows you to add a custom CSS class to your Subscribe Block.
