Create a Subscribe Button (Alert Me Work-Around)

When you try and create an alert, the link doesn’t change, a form pops up for you to fill in.  So if you try copy that link to put onto a button, it will just open the list.

Alert links 1To get around that, go to the list settings and click on any of these to get the list ID that has these brackets around it { }.

Alert links 2Select the bit in yellow.

Alert links 3Change it to subnew and enter.  The alert form displays.  Insert link onto any subscribe link or image you like in your site.
