I need to display newsletter subscribe form on my CMS page.

Default form has only email field but I need to display with additional fields.

Additional fields like : Gender, First-name, and Last-name.

How I can add these fields in the table, display it on the form, save values in the table.

The below worked fine for me. There is plenty of room for improvement. The form needs styling help and this adds additional first/last name fields to the admin grid rather than merging them with the existing customer name columns. Add this to your CMS page to include the form with the additional fields {{block class="Magento\Newsletter\Block\Subscribe" template="Vendor_Module::subscribe.phtml"}}

  • Hi Pmclain, I tried your solution but it did not work in my end. I have a question about this one Vendor/Module/Plugin/Newsletter/Subscriber.php <-- is this a block or something? and about in the di.xml this line of codes: <type name="Magento\Newsletter\Model\Subscriber"> <plugin name="vendor_module_newsletter_model_subscriber" type="Vendor\Module\Plugin\Newsletter\Subscriber"/> </type> It will result in error also. – MazeStricks Feb 28 '17 at 2:36
  • The plugin class you are referencing is a plugin/interceptor. Describing in detail here would be a bit long winded, but the official documentation is devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/extension-dev-guide/… The class is responsible for adding the additional field information to the subscriber model before saving. The di.xml is telling Magento the plugin class exists. Without details of error you are experiencing I can't really speak intelligently to the problem. Did you try deleting the var/generation directory? – Pmclain Mar 4 '17 at 13:47
