Is it possible to get a basic email CC signup form on a wpengine site? Without being a coder or hiring one?


In trying to get a simple CC signup form in my wpengine.com site's sidebar, I went to Signup Forms page in my CC account.

Right off the bat I did not see that I could use a CC signup form.


On that same CC page, Optin Monster was prominent (somehow I missed the CC signup form). And my host, wpengine.com recommends OM as one of the best.


So I signed up for OM Basic Plan.


The following is my experience on Basic OM Pricing Plan.


OM support pages talk about wordpress.com and wordpress.org but nothing about wpengine.com which is really big business now-- weird that OM would not mention it.


So I read all wordpress and other OM support pages many times over, before reaching out to OM Support.


Here's latest from my OM support person: "The output setting [that I set] is correct, The campaign should not be showing at the bottom of some of the pages. Do you have added the OptinMonster embed code somewhere on the theme file as well? Perhaps at some of the templates?" [No, and no.]

For now, my optin form that does display says this form is a test, and to please check back in a few weeks, as it should be working by then. With OM logo.


Then I tested one of my email addresses my optin form but that's not working either.


I'm a one-person micro-business-- hoping I do everything from CC, then unsuspend my account to get new campaigns going. Once tried free Mail Chimp, but support was lacking. CC offers much better support so that's why I'm trying to make CC signup for work again.


I'll be calling CC support again after July 4th holiday and hopefully get it working. Have 166 daily visitors to my site, but missing their signups.


Thanks in advance for any ideas!
