June - Creating Home Page Opt-In Form

The opt-in form on the Home page is populated using a shortcode. To get it to appear, you have to install and activate the Widget Shortcode plugin.

Once you have the plugin installed, you'll need to setup a Genesis eNews Extended widget area, and replace the shortcode on your Home page using the following steps.

Go to Appearance > Widgets, and drag the Genesis eNews Extended widget to the Widget Shortcode area.

Add in your title, text, and form information and click Save at the bottom. If you need help getting this setup, you can check out this tutorial

Once you have saved the widget area, you'll see a shortcode appear at the bottom of the widget settings. Copy the entire shortcode. 

Open your Home page, and locate the block that has the demo shortcode in it.

Highlight and delete the entire code, and then paste in your new shortcode.

Click the Update button in the top right of your screen, and then View your page to make sure the new opt-in form is displaying on your Home page.
