Magento, I'm trying to put a newsletter subscribe form at footer.

By using {{block type="newsletter/subscribe" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}} the block is not showing up,

By using {{block type="core/template" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}} the block is showing, but not working.

Any ideas what the issue is and how to fix?

Any help is much appreciated.

  • Hmm.. that looks right to me and I tested it and it works fine as well when dropping it into a CMS page. You're certain that Newsletter/Block/Subscribe.php has not been modified or overridden? Also as a sanity check, the Mage_Newsletter module is enabled, correct? Nov 13, 2015 at 1:53
  • are you adding this in static block? Nov 13, 2015 at 5:31

Since the newest Security Patch / Release you need to add a permission for the block type under "System -> Permissions -> Blocks"

  • Lol, You are right, I forgot about that, It's working now. Thanks
