How To Add Subscribe Box With Ripple Effect And Flat Look In Blogger?
Subscribe Box with Ripple Effect
Friends, we all know that how much subscribers are important for us. That's why we often put an ordinary subscribe box to let our readers stick at our posts. But...I can bet. From that 'ordinary' subscribe box, no one would have subscribed your blog yet.

We have already introduced with some of the best subscribe boxes like shining subscribe box for adding attractiveness to your blogger blog. Now, I think it's 2016, and we should think better than that shiny one. Now, the world like professionalism instead of funky and flat designs. It's time for materialization and today; we are with a mixture of material design's component and an old flat design.

I think we know that these days, after making your blog, optimizing it correctly and collecting subscribers are the most difficult works, and every blogger should do this work.

Do you know what you totally need to get your users attracted towards a thing? It's:
  1. Uniqueness
  2. Professionalism
This subscribe have all. Professionalism, in its design and Uniqueness in its silent attractiveness.

Why Subscribe Box Is Important For Blogger Blogs?

Do you have this question in your mind? I mean, did this question arise in your mind? I think yes but if no, then you are an old Blogger. Am I right?
Actually, if a visitor of your blog subscribes to your blog, he receives, or she receives an email every time you update your blog. I mean, you post new content on your blog. So, isn't it useful? It will help to increase your blog and listen from your subscribers.

How To Add This Subscribe Box On My Blog?

Well, I would say that you should add a subscribe box on your blog. I am not actually forcing you to add this one only; you can add another subscribe box from another blog. But, you must add at least one subscribe box on your blogger blog.

Now, let's come to the main mudda. Which is, how to add this subscribe box in your blog.

Note: - We are using this subscribe box for more than a month, and we have actually seen the positive effect of this subscribe box.

Steps are following:
  1. First of all, go to Blogger > Layout > Add a Gadget [Of Sidebar]
  2. Now on your "Content" field, copy/paste the following set of codes:
  3. <div class="subscribe-box"><div class="text-subscribe">Get'ur Daily Newsletter In Your Email<div class="bigger-text">For FREE</div><div class="text2-subscribe">Just put your email id in the below given field and then submit that "I'm In!" button. Then we'll send you a verification link in your Inbox. Just verify that link. Then we'll send you our newsletter daily in your email!</div></div>
    <div>
    <form action="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open
    
    ('http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=BloggerGuiders', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return 
    
    true" id="bg-embedded-subscribe-form" name="bg-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate>
        <div>
     
     <input type="email" value="" name="EMAIL" class="newsletter-address" placeholder="Email Address" required />
        <div style="position: absolute; left: -5000px;"><input type="text" tabindex="-1" value="" /></div>
        <div class="clear"><input type="submit" value="I'm In!" name="subscribe" class="ripple-effect newsletter-submit" /></div>
        </div>
    </form>
    </div>
    <div class="attention-subscribe">We would never spam you.</div></div>
    <script>
          //<![CDATA[
          jQuery(document).ready(function(e){e("body").on("click",".ripple-effect",function(t){t.preventDefault();var i=e(this),a=i.attr("data-ripple-limit"),n=i.attr("data-ripple-color");if("undefined"==typeof n)var n="rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0.3 )";var o=i.attr("data-ripple-wrap-radius");if("undefined"==typeof o)var o=0;if("undefined"==typeof a)var r=i;else var r=i.closest(a);var p=r.offset(),d=t.pageX,s=t.pageY,f=r.outerWidth(),l=r.outerHeight(),u=e('<span class="ripple-effect-wrap"></span>');u.css({width:f,height:l,position:"absolute",top:p.top,left:p.left,"z-index":1e4,overflow:"hidden","background-clip":"padding-box","-webkit-border-radius":o,"border-radius":o});var c=i.attr("data-ripple-wrap-class");"undefined"!=typeof c&&u.addClass(c),u.appendTo("body");var b=d-p.left,m=s-p.top,g=1e3,h=e('<span class="ripple"></span>');h.css({width:g,height:g,background:n,position:"absolute",top:m-g/2,left:b-g/2,content:"","background-clip":"padding-box","-webkit-border-radius":"50%","border-radius":"50%","-webkit-animation-name":"ripple-animation","animation-name":"ripple-animation","-webkit-animation-duration":"5s","animation-duration":"5s","-webkit-animation-fill-mode":"both","animation-fill-mode":"both"}),e(".ripple-effect-wrap:last").append(h),setTimeout(function(){u.fadeOut(function(){e(this).remove()})},500);var v=i.attr("href"),w=i.attr("target");w||(w="_self"),"undefined"!=typeof v&&"#"!=v.substring(0,1)&&setTimeout(function(){window.open(v,w)},200),(i.is("input")||i.is("button"))&&setTimeout(function(){i.removeClass("ripple-effect"),i.trigger("click"),i.addClass("ripple-effect")},200)})});
