Email Subscribers & Newsletters By Icegram = Compatible with Sydney?


I would like to add a widget (free, no trial, no monthly fee) that will allow visitors to subscribe to a newsletter. Once done, I want the email address to be added to a distribution list available in my existing email provider which is included in my hosting fee. My provider recommended Email Subscribers & Newsletters By Icegram. Will this cause problems with the theme in anyway? I am not partial to it if you have other free plugin recommendation that will fit better with the theme. Constant Contact seems wonderful but it is not free to use after two months and was not easily able to add it to the dashboard.

Thank you,


Hello Lilou,

Sydney theme was not tested with that plugin. However, you can try it, but please remember about importance of regular full site backups (files and database):
Backups can help you if something goes wrong.

Thank you Roman for the helpful links. I learned from reading them.

I installed the Email Subscribers & Newsletters By Icegram plugin successfully and all seems to work as expected. Its a very easy plugin to setup. There is also a help menu built in.


Great! You are welcome Lilou :slight_smile:
