WordPress Newsletter Sign Up

Last updated 08/04/2022

You can add the Bread & Butter IO Newsletter Sign Up tool to any page on your site. The Newsletter Sign Up window appears after a specified number of seconds. It prompts users to subscribe through a trusted account or using an email address.

Bread and Butter IO remembers who has signed up, and won’t prompt subscribers again.

You can add the Newsletter Sign Up tool to any page on your site, and configure the content you want it to display, including background image.

Set up the messaging that will prompt the user to sign up for the newsletter.

  • The Header is the text that appears at the top of the window.
  • The Main Message is the main body of text in the window. This should explain what your newsletter is, and why the user would want to sign up.
  • The Success Message is the message that users see after they have signed up successfully.
  • The Popup Delay is the amount of time after the page loads that the Newsletter tool pops up.
  • The Custom Image appears on the left side of the Newsletter prompt. If you don't include an image URL, a default image is used.
