I’ve just finished to build my first widget for Wordpress today - Ajax Newsletter Widget
I’m using Sidebar Widgets Plugin (by Automattic, Inc.) and Ajax Newsletter Plugin (by Tiago Pocinho), but this last one didn’t have a widget built for it. After searching a little bit the Internet and couldn’t find it, I decided that it’s time for me to dig into it and find out how I can make it. Since it’s my first time coding something for Wordpress, it took me few hours to get it done, but I’m happy to have it now working on my site.

v1.1 : I changed the way widget options are retrieved to avoid a nasty warning message.
After downloading this plugin, extract the directory “wp-ajax-newsletter”.
Go to the Wordpress back-office and activate the plugin. This will create the needed tables in the database. After that activate the Ajax Newsletter Widget.
If you already have Ajax Newsletter Plugin installed, just download only the widget zip file and unzip it in “wp-ajax-newsletter”. Then go to plugin page and activate it. That’s it!
