How to Configure the Generate Box

The Generate Box is a “Generate Box” widget area using a text widget to display what you see on the demo site.

Below is the code that we used in a text widget for the demo site:

<p><img src="/wp-content/themes/generate/images/generatebox-badge.png" alt="" class="alignright" /></p>
<p>Join over 155,000 people who get free and fresh content delivered automatically<br />
each time we publish. Your privacy and email address are safe with us!</p>
< --- please substitute your form code here -- >
<input type="text" value="Enter your email address..." onfocus="if(this.value=='Enter your email address...'){this.value=''}" onblur="if(this.value==''){this.value='Enter your email address...'}"  />
<input type="submit" value="Sign Up" />

This form code was designed for use with Feedburner. If you are using Aweber, please see this plugin. You can also use the Enews and updates plugin, or paste in the form code from your newsletter service provider.

The banner area is the title on the text widget. Fill in the title area for the banner graphic to show.
