How To Add An Email Optin Module To Your Page

Before you can add a email optin module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Enable Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the email optin module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “email optin” and then click enter to automatically find and add the email optin module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.

Configuring Email Accounts

Before you can use the email optin module, you will first need to connect it to an email provider. These providers can be added and managed within the module settings. Once you add a new email provider, it will appear in the module settings whenever you edit an email optin module on your website.

Use Case Example: Adding A Email Optin to the Bottom of a Blog Post

A common place to add an email optin form is just below your post content.
For this quick example, I’m going to show you just how easy it is insert and style a Email Optin Module below a blog post using the Visual Builder.

Using the Visual Builder, add Standard Section with a one-half one-half (2 column) row under the section containing the post content.

Since this example is going to be an e-book offer with the optin, add an Image Module to the left column and upload an image of the book. Set the image alignment to “Center” and set the image max width to 300px.

Then add the Email Optin Module to the right column.
