Many people use MailerLite for their email lists. If you’d like to give your visitors a way to subscribe to your MailerLite list on your site, you can use the subscriber pop-up form.

Step One: Create a Popup in MailerLite

In order to use the MailerLite subscriber popup on your WordPress.com site, you need a MailerLite account.

Once you set up a new mailing list there, create a subscriber popup following the steps described in this article.

Step Two: Add the Popup to Your Site

To add the widget to your site:

  1. In your dashboard, click on Appearance → Customize → Widgets.
  2. Choose the location where you’d like to place the widget on your site. Common options here include the Footer and Sidebar, but this may be different depending on your theme.
  3. Click either of the + block inserter buttons (see right) to see a list of all the available blocks and widgets.
  4. Scroll down to the Widgets section and click on the widget once to add it to your site.

For general information on working with widgets, see this guide.

You can choose any widget area here, because the popup will show over the site regardless. Once you insert the widget onto your site, you need to configure it.

You will need 2 values:

  • Your account ID
  • The UUID

Both of those values come from MailerLite “JavaScript tracking snippet” field:
