Can you recommend a newsletter signup widget which would work with Lightfast (or other Simplethemes themes)?

Many thanks for your outstanding work.

Hi Keith,

I suppose there’s many ways to handle this.

If you use a service like Campaign Monitor or Mailchimp, they provide embed codes that you’d just insert into a widget in your sidebar.

If you’re looking for something that captures set fields on your own server, you could guise this functionality in just about any form plugins such as Gravity forms, Contact Form 7, or Ninja Forms. I think all three of those save the data for you to export at a later time.

I’d recommend Campaign Monitor over any of those.
