How to Customize the Subscribe section in Hestia?

📝 Note: This section is available only after you install and activate the Orbit Fox plugin.

The subscribe section is crucial for capturing potential customers' contact information, allowing businesses to build a targeted email list for marketing campaigns and fostering long-term relationships with their audience.

🧰 Configuring SendinBlue

📝  Note: In order to work properly, the Subscribe Section needs to have the SendinBlue free plugin installed and activated, so make sure you do that first. 


After installing the SendinBlue (Brevo) plugin, navigate to  SendinBlue > Home.


Click on the arrow next to your name on the right side and access SMTP & API.


On the new page, switch to API Keys.


Click on Generate a new API key and copy it.


Go inside the WP Dashboard and click on the Brevo panel.


Paste the API key that you previously generated.


Save the changes, then go to Forms.


Here you can choose to use the default form or add a new one.

📝 Note: You can find more information about integrating SendinBlue here.

The plugin will provide a default form (that can be found in SendinBlue > Forms) that you can use, with a few customizations. To get the same style as the subscribe form on the Hestia demo, you need to edit the default form, by replacing its content with the one provided below:

<div style="width:100%"> 		 
<span style="margin:0; vertical-align:middle;"></span> 		
<input type="email" name="email" required="required" placeholder="Your Email Here"> 	
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Subscribe"> 

🛠 Using the Form


Go to  Appearance > Customize > Frontpage Sections Subscribe.


Click on the  SendinBlue Plugin tab.


Click on the button next to Edit the Subscribe Widgets, and you will be redirected to the Widgets panel.


Click on the plus button and add the  SendinBlue Widget


Select the form you want to use and add a widget title.

📝 Note: If the section is not visible, exit the Customizer and refresh the page.

Apart from the main subscribe widget, the section also has some general settings:

  • Disable section 
  • Background image - background image for the Subscribe Section.
  • Section Title and Subtitle
