What types of forms are there?

A form is the right way to collect new contacts online, via (double) opt-in. Within MailBlue, you can design your form in four different ways: as an inline form, floating bar, floating box, and modal form.

In this article, we explain the differences between the various types of forms you can use within MailBlue. Please note! The choice of form depends on the type of subscription (Lite, Plus, or Professional) you manage. There are four types of forms available:

When you want to create a form, the following screen will appear:

Through this screen, you have the option to choose from various types of forms. You can also add a form action directly. This action can be modified later.

You have a choice of four forms. We will briefly discuss these forms below.

Inline form

This type of form is available for all subscription types (Lite, Plus, and Professional).

This styled form is embedded on a desired page by adding the form code of this type to your website. With this form, it is possible to add extra fields to collect more information about your subscribers. This can be done through the drag-and-drop system, as well as via CSS and HTML coding.

This type of form offers five different integration options: simple embedding, full embedding, embedding via a link, WordPress plugin, and Facebook.

Floating bar

The floating bar is available from a Plus subscription onwards.

This type of form is a horizontal bar that appears at the top or bottom of your webpage or actually 'floats'. This form can collect names, phone numbers, and email addresses of visitors.

The integration options for the floating bar are only the simple embedding code and the WordPress plugin.

If you place this type of form on your webpage, it will look like this, for example:

Floating box

The floating box is available from a Plus subscription onwards.

If you choose the floating box, you create a form that floats at the bottom left or right of the webpage. Through this form, you can collect names, phone numbers, and email addresses of visitors or leads.

The integration options only include the simple embedding code and the WordPress plugin.

Modal form

This type of form is available for Plus and Professional subscriptions. It is not possible to select and/or use this type with a Lite subscription.

With this option, you create a pop-up version of your opt-in possibility. This form appears at the top of your website's content. With this type of form, you can collect names, phone numbers, and email addresses.

Just like the two previous types of forms, this form can be integrated into your website using simple embed code and a WordPress plugin.
