How to Build an Autoresponder – the Opt-in Form

How to create an email opt-in form in WordPressI wrote last week about how I decided a while back to see if I could build my own opt-in email autoresponder system as a WordPress plugin. The first part that I chose to figure out was the double opt-in component, which I will describe here.

Before I get into that, I want to point out some potential limitations of building an email autoresponder into a WordPress plugin. I don’t think the actual opt-in process will be that significant because it is only¬†handling traffic that is already on the website. It just involves sending an extra email message and and an extra page load¬†as the visitor completes the double opt-in.
