OnClick Popup Email Subscription Widget for Blogger using CSS3 and HTML5

There are many Popup email subscription widgets for blogger out there published by many blogs including BTNT, You can check the previously published Popup subscription widget on BTNT below. The main reason behind designing this widget is performance. All the widget published before uses jquery to function and takes lots of loading time and page size as an result reducing performance. But the widget I'm publishing today is only based on CSS3 and HTML5. So, It loads lighting fast and won't mess with any other widgets.

Also, It comes with a simple eye catching flat design. Click on the live demo link to have a look at the demo yourself ;)

  9. Thanks Chandeep, especially for the BTNT THEME and Can you tell me which software you are using for creating blog Image poster..??

  10. Hello. Is there a way to add a delay?

  11. Wow, this email subscription widget is nice but why does a scroll key shows up on SUBSCRIBE VIA EMAIL pop up box on my site but not yours??

  12. Hello chadeep,

    I must say this was really awesome post. Before google page sight was showing jquery render error and it also reduces the load time.

    But you have really upgrade it well.

    But still chandeep don't you think so its not really a popup.

    Ultimately user have to click on message box and then popup appears.

    So, instead can you please design real popup widget using html and css means no external .js calls.

    The same code but auto popup.

    Hope you understood what I'm trying to say :)

    Can you please design it ?

    Awaiting for your reply !


  13. Awesome onclick widget.It works fast.I applied it on my blog Entry test practice and Educational topics.Thanks...

  14. Thank you so much, Chandeep! I am using it on my blog now. Can you help me to change the colour of widget Please? I want it to match with my blog's theme.

  15. Hey it won't work for me because I don't have this "]]>" in my template...
