FeedBurner Footer SlideUp

After my second plugin for GetResponse Footer SlideUp I got so many emails and comments asking for similar plugin for feedburner and so created Feedburner Footer Slideup Form plugin for those who still want to be using Feedburner for Email Subscriptions. My personal preference is always AWeber over Feedburner for RSS to email.

Plugin Description

Footer Slideup Form is one of the best ways to ask your user to subscribe to your list without any interruption or blocking and this plugin does exactly that. It adds an FeedBurner subscribe sliding form in the footer of your WordPress blog.

Installation Instructions

Please Follow the exact Steps to install and activate this plugin.

  1. Activate Email Subscription for your Feed in Feedburner.
  2. Grab the HTML code of your HTML Form and Search for uri=SomeString. SomeString is your unique identifier for your Feedburner feed.
  3. Upload the plugin folder feedburner-footer-slideup at wp-content/plugins.
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  5. Edit Options under the Menu ‘Feedburner Footer SlideUp’. Paste the FeedBurner URI String generated in Step 2.

FAQ’s

How to Edit the Tag Line Subscribe By Email for Weekly Updates?

Heading Tag Line (Optional) in the admin interface of the plugin. Leaving it blank will show the default tagline.

    Great Plugin, I used it on my site,it works on IE and Mozilla but it did not work on Opera and Google Chrome.

    How can i rectify this.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      It works for me perfectly fine in those browser. Can you tell me what version of your browsers that have issues.

      • clickermotics

        Opera 11.62 and Google Chrome 26.0.1410.64

        • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

          It works fine for me in those browser.

  • http://www.aqua-verde.net Joanne

    I am not finding any “options” menu after activating plug-in. When I click edit it takes me straight to the php. I HAVE used your plugin on 2 other sites awhile ago and had no issues.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      It will be under the settings Menu of WordPress.

    Hi

    I just got the plugin for my website..I had a video on youtube

    As you know, I am a little bit confused to find the URI of feed burner – you might say feedburner ID though..

    Also, is there any way I can customize the color and size?

    Thanks,

    elle

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Elle, I visited your website link and for you the feedburner ID is parentingInformer for your blog.

      Yes you can customize the looks using CSS as you want.

  • http://Toplaxrecruits.com Jonathan

    I got it……the problem was I did not refresh the site after having the incorrect URI string

    Great plugin!

    J

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Glad the issue is now solved.

  • http://Toplaxrecruits.com Jonathan

    Shabbir

    I am having the same issue. “The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled”

    I have my uri=toplaxrecruitscom and have checked that the email subscription is enabled

    Thanks for the help

    J

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Jonathan, I see it working fine on your website. Do you still have the issue.

  • http://www.jobsandscholarship.com Amynet

    can you please explain how to use this footer slideup for blogger. Or please help us create one for blogger bcos there is nothing like such in the whole blogspot world. Some help, please!

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    That is what I have as in the screenshot I sent you. Man if you don’t know your own software.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      You are not ready to read the instruction and saying I don’t know my own software.

      I see your HTML output in the site as this.

      input type=”hidden” value=”uri=just100aday” name=”uri”

      Where as it should be

      input type=”hidden” value=”just100aday” name=”uri”

      Do you see the difference in value parameter where you have uri= where as I have clear instruction on what it should be.

      As per my instructions – uri=SomeString. SomeString is your unique identifier for your Feedburner feed.

      If you are not ready to read the instructions I cannot help further than this.

  • http://just100aday.com Nick Savage

    This is my email code from feedburner.

    It works with just the feedburner in the site but the plugin will not work, So I have the admin section correct right.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      No you don’t have it done correctly as I can see in the output HTML and I explained what should be the feedburner id which is just100aday and not just100aday&loc=en_US.

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    Still does not work I think it may not be compatable with my profitstheme website. I really liked it though. I wanted it for my members so it would not be too obtrusive on the website.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      I see it completely compatible and there is nothing why it should not be working apart from adding the right admin options.

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    Okay I put it at the bottom of my home page and it worked fine, see screenshot. http://www.agencynursing.info/fb.png

    the page is just100aday.com

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      The value you have entered is

      uri=just100aday&loc=en_US

      where as it should be only

      just100aday

      I have mentioned the same in step 2

      uri=SomeString. SomeString is your unique identifier for your Feedburner feed

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    Got it, good idea.

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    Here is a screen shot of that tab.
    agencynursing.info/Clipboard01.png

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    I did that. it says deactivate at bottom, I checked email subscription is activated. I did it under that tab publicize or whatever. Followed all instructions.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Just forget about the plugin as of now and try to get the Feedburner Email Subscription thing Working and once it works, Follow the instructions for the plugin.

  • http://just100aday.com nick

    Hi, I did what was asked but it isn’t working still getting The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled
    Tell me in red to………Activate Email subscription for your Feeds under the Publicize Section and get the email subscription form HTML code. Search for uri=SomeString and place the content of SomeString here.
    ———-
    So I put uri=just100aday&loc=en_US and I also tried uri=just100aday inb the

    Box that says FeedBurner URI (Required) Where the red text is, seems there should be a box next to it but there is not. Am I missing something, I love this and want to use it.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Nick, visit your feedburner account and activate your Feedburner feed for Email Subscription.

  • http://donotread.me get SEO help

    haha. thanks. and you know my name. thanks for visiting my site

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      I knew this was coming. Yes I did visit your blog.

  • http://donotread.me get SEO help guy

    im using this one on my blog. but is thee any option to now show the never show again?

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Not sure I understand because never show again is always shown?

      • http://donotread.me get SEO help guy

        what i mean is there are two options on the lower right portion of the page when the plugin is activated: close for now and never show again. If a user click on never show again, it will never show again right? i just wish i could remove that option.

        • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

          Ohh ok. You can do that with a simple CSS trick. Let me know if you can add one line into your themes CSS file and I will let you know what it is.

          • http://donotread.me get SEO help

            yup i can

            • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

              Just add the following

              #dontshowanymore {display:none;visibility:hidden;}

              I think this should do it for you. If not have that in your CSS file and do let me know the issues.

              • http://donotread.me get SEO help

                i my be good at seo but I earned that status through selfstudy and experiment. unfortunately, css is not my forte. i tried to add the code but it didnt work.

                • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

                  You are using w3 total cache plugin and so your CSS file is served from the cache. Flushing the cache may help.

                  • http://donotread.me get SEO help

                    thanks a lot. it works!

    Hi Shabbir, This is a complex and sensitive working experiment specially feed burning. I appreciate this for leaks so many info such as news, blog, video and so many other options. Thank you very much for this amazing abbreviation for marketing. :)

  • http://ask-jaime.com Jaime

    Can you please help describe the code I am looking for from feedburner? Is this the code I should insert? name=”uri”/>

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      No not the complete HTML code but only the value for the uri

  • David

    Wow, strange I guess this is only happening to me. Well I’m ok with that. Thanks for all the help!

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      The pleasure is all mine David.

  • David

    Thank you Shabbir. If you navigate away from the site (i.e. visit another website) and then return the slideup does not appear. This happens without having clicked “close for now” or “never show again”.

    So yes it works on every page the 1st time you visit the site, but once you return after visiting another site it does not appear.

    The only way I can get it to show again is to clear my cache, history, etc

    Thanks!

    Dave

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      No Dave, I visited once again now and it worked for me. I visited your site. Type Google.com and visited google. Typed back your site and the slideup did show to me.

  • http://www.southsidemusic.org David

    Hello Shabir, I really like this plugin, but on 2 of my themes (both revolution themes) the slideup only appears the first time you visit the website. This is case even without clicking “close for now” or “never show again”. Below is the url for the site so that you can see what I am talking about:

    http://www.southsidemusic.org

    Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Dave

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      David, I visited your site and I saw the slideup. Clicked on a post and once again saw the slideup. Once again clicked the logo and visited the home page and saw the slideup. I am in Chrome and can you suggest when the slideup disappears i.e. exact steps.

  • http://blog.thinkmarketact.com eric

    fixed and plugin works. if there is a paypal donation thing in the plugin i will send a couple bucks your way

    thanks for the help
    eric

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Great to see that but if you want you can link to my blog from your blog somewhere but if you still think about the donation only you can use my PayPal shabbir @ go4expert.com

  • http://blog.thinkmarketact.com eric
    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Hi Eric, your blog’s HTML is messed up. You have noscript tag started after your Google Analytics code but that tag is not closed and so the slideup code is falling under noscript tag and that could be one of the reason for not showing up.

  • http://blog.thinkmarketact.com eric

    Hello I have installed the plugin. Nothing happens though. the URi is correct and i have a footer hook like the last guy asked about.

    hmmm

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Share your blog URI and I will be more than happy to look into it. We not only need the hook in footer but in header as well.

  • Steven

    I use a WordPress that uses no widgets.

    Will I still be able to use your feedburner in my wordpress blog? If so, how? I have installed and configured it, but it doesn’t show anywhere. How do I manually insert it?

    Thanks.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Yes Steven, you should be able to use it if theme supports header and footer hooks. Share your blog URL and I will be more than happy to have a look at it.

      • Steven
        • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

          Hi Steven, I see you have the plugin enabled but either your theme does not support the footer hook or you have not entered the FeedBurner URI String in the Feedburner Footer SlideUp menu under the settings.

          • Steven

            I definitely have the URI string entered and saved in settings.

            Can I manually use the footer hook?

            • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

              Yes you can. See the WordPress guidelines here on how to get that done.

              • Steven

                Thanks Shabbir. I now have the subscribe bar at the bottom. When I try to subscribe, however, I receive the error: “The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled.”

                I thought I configured this when I created the feed. I’ve looked in my Feedburner settings but cannot find how to turn this on (or off).

                Can you help please? Thanks.

                • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

                  Yes under the Publicize menu you have the Email subscription service to activate and de-activate it.

  • http://www.marksmayo.com Mark

    Fantastic, easy to install and use. I’d like to be able to change the colour settings and the value of the Subscribe button, however, without having to edit the php directly.

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      All you have to do is add the CSS styling to your own theme’s CSS file.

  • http://www.empoweringwomenslives.com Kinyofu

    Great plugin. Looking forward to overcoming one issue: Where is the Publicize section you speak of? I pasted code from Aweber and I saw my form in dashboard. On the site, I see the box on the bottom. When I put a test email in, a box appears saying that my email is not in feeds (or something like that).

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      The publicize section is in your Feedburner option.

    And btw, that’s the plugin you have to show RSS Face and Twitter on the sidebar all over the site? I’ve just one for twitter. :P

    Rui

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      This is not a plugin some simple couple of lines of HTML and nothing more. I try to avoid plugins to the extent I can because I like things to work speedier and faster.

  • http://www.ruicruz.pt Rui Cruz

    Hi,

    I use this plugin on some sites. I was installing it on a new wp site that uses jquery for displaying thumbs on the top of the site and because if that if I enable this plugin the thumbs are not shown.

    How do I make this plugin compatible with that?

    Also, I think all WP plugins should be revieware, so I post on my blog (left the link there) 8 recent plugins I use and I mention yours. :)
    Keep the good work.

    Rui

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Share your URL and I will be more than happy to get this work for you.

      • http://www.ruicruz.pt Rui Cruz

        URL is badooporcas.com.

        Your plugin is not installed at the momment, just the thumb image.

        Rui

        • http://www.ruicruz.pt Rui Cruz

          Any updatE?

          Rui

          • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

            I somehow missed your last comment and so did not reply.

            Can you enable both and let me know so I can look into it but if it is something you cannot do on your live blog you can let me know your alternate blog post

            • http://www.ruicruz.pt Rui Cruz

              Hi,

              Can I paste the source-code instead when both are enabled?

              Happy new year to you.

              Rui

    It’s so lucky for me to find your blog! So shocking and great!

  • http://teskerjacpns.com/ fearvector

    Thanks for this plugin. It’s a easy, great and clean way to get subscribers. I installed this plugin in my WP 3.0.1 and everything is OK. FYI, I am using Feedburner.

    Umm, one thing you might fix is your blog url at Feedburner Footer Slideup setting menu. The link there is http://imtips.co/feedburner-footer-slideup/ . And this url referred to Not Found page. I see that this page url is http://imtips.co/feedburner-footer-slideup.html. But this is not a fundamental error I think.

    And it will be great if you want to add another design settings to this plugin. Like background color and opacity :)

    • http://imtips.co/ Shabbir

      Thanks for your comments and also the URL issue is now solved but I have not changed the version of the plugin and so you may not see an upgrade message in your WordPress plugin interface.

      I have few things coming up for this plugins and soon you will have options to edit things.

  • Ernst

    Don't understand where to paste in the html code from feed burner. Do I edit the plugin code or do I put it somewhere else?

    • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

    Hello,How are you shabir,i am getting a problem after installing this plugin.My theme jquery stops working after installing this plugin.
    Please check it out on http://www.jinnahsequaid.com
    And do tell me how can i handle this situation.
    Thanks

    • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

      I am not sure but it should not and are you sure it is only my plugin which is making your jQuery to break because I have the needed measures that should not break the jQuery

      • http://www.jinnahsequaid.com jazz

        Yes,I checked it twice after disabling this plugin the site jquery starts working.
        I think you can find a way because i like this plugin and wants to keep it.
        Suggest me something to solve this issue.
        Thanks

        • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

          I am not able to replicate the issue and this may be that you already have jQuery twice other than for my plugin and so if you can confirm me your theme ( I guess it is tribune http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/tribune ) and also plugins and I can see if I can get the issue on my server. I will be more than happy to solve the issue to the extent I can.

          • http://www.jinnahsequaid.com jazz

            shabir Its tribune from wpzoom and yes i already have jquery.I think no plugin is causing any problem i checked by disabling all plugins except footer slideup.But i can confirm that i already had jquery.So how can i cope with this situation.Do i need to delete plugin Jquery to make it work.Thanks

            • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

              Yes that is your best bet.

  • KNS_Financial

    Hello, I have installed your plugin and it does not allow readers to type into the box to enter their email address. Also, I noticed that on your site it gives a box for entering a first name, is that possible on my site as well?

    Here it is: http://knsfinancial.com

    • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

      I am using AWeber ( http://www.codeitwell.com/go/aweber1 ) and Feedburner does not allow you to enter name.

      Regarding user not able to enter email address I am able to enter it but the problem is with visibility and so I think the issue is with colors. You have chosen background and display colors both as white.

      • KNS_Financial

        You are correct, I went back to the .css file and changed the display color to black. Everything looks great now! This is a wonderful plugin!

        I know that AWeber has a lot more options, but I don't think it will be worth it to pay for an email service since I'm not making much money with my site yet.

        • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

          Thanks and if you have plans to monetize your blog in future it would be great to start building your AWeber list but depends on your plans.

    • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

      I am not sure why the same happens on your end but the version 0.2 of the plugin works perfectly fine on one of my friends blog http://managementfunda.com/

      • http://www.revolutioners.com Kuldeep

        I am using the 3.1 beta version of WP.. does that have anything to do with it.

          • http://www.revolutioners.com Kuldeep

            Oh, actually forgot to tell you about that. I have a local setup as well with 3.0 and it gave me the exact same error. Any suggestions, where and how can I check to resolve this error.

            • http://imtips.co Shabbir Bhimani

              The url I send you where the plugin is working is WP3.0 and so unless I see your exact issue it would be tough to comment
