Placing Inline and Universal codes for a sign-up form


Placing Inline and Universal codes for a sign-up form


I can't figure out how and where to put the Inline and Universal codes for a sign-up form. The articles on creating (18265) and installing (18053) an inline contact sign-up form on a website do not give enough details to do it myself. I'm very computer literate and built a WordPress site mostly myself, and I don't have a web builder to help. Can someone give me step-by-step instructions? Thanks.

I'm having the exact same problem. I would really appreciate some help on this too. I also do not have a developer or web builder and am pretty proficient with our Wordpress website, but because we use widgets for our footer, there is no html code to tweak.


Hi @DickR05 and @HannahT9 


I apologize you both are not able to add your sign-up form as easily as you should. However at this time we do not offer assistance with inserting these forms in your website. The two articles mentioned in the original post on this thread are the directions we provide for this experience. If you are still unable to insert the inline code following these directions, I would recommend contacting WordPress support directly.


Are either of you using Wordpress.com  or Weordpress.org? This is an important clarification to have as Wordpress.com is not the same as Wordpress.org. Wordpress.com doesn't support 3rd party Javascript or plugins of any kind. So if either of you are using Wordpress.com, we recommend creating a Landing Page Sign-up Form instead. You can then copy the Landing Page's URL and link it to a button or text link on your Wordpress.com website.
