This guide covers how to update the Newsletter Subscription Form in the footer of most themes to post to SmartrMail.

Step 1: Find your replacement code within SmartrMail. 

Instructions on finding this code are here: 

Step 2: From the Neto Dashboard select Settings & Tools > All Settings & Tools.

Step 3: Locate Webstore Templates under the System Templates section.

Step 4: Click on the Plus Sign next to the theme name you are using. Then go into Footers and click on Template.html. The template will load in an editor so that you can make the necessary changes. 

Step 5: Find and remove the following code:

<input type="hidden" name="list_id" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="opt_in" value="y">


<input name="inp-submit" type="hidden" value="y" />
<input name="inp-opt_in" type="hidden" value="y" />

Step 6: Locate an remove this code:

<form method="post" action="[%URL type:'page' id:'subscribe' https:'1'%][%END URL%]">

and replace it with the form tag located in your SmartrMail code. It should look something like this:

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="" id:'subscribe' method="post">

(your id attribute should remain the same to maintain styling)

Step 7: Locate an remove this code:

<input name="inp-email" class="form-control" type="email" value="[%nohtml%][@inp-email@][%/nohtml%]" placeholder="Email Address" required/>

and replace it with this:

<input id="inp-email" class="form-control" name="subscribe_form[email]" type="text" placeholder="Email Address"/>

(your id attribute should remain the same to maintain styling)

Step 8: Add the spam bot protection code:

<input name="subscribe_form[anti_bot]" type="text" style="display: none" />

Step 9: Save Changes. Test the form by entering a valid email address. You should take to a thank you page on the SmartrMail website. 

Step 10 (optional): If you want to set your own thank you page you can set it on your customise form page:
