I would like to ad a pop-up to my home page to invite people to sign up for my newsletter. I use Vertical Response as my email marketing software and have created the pop-up form in Vertical Response. The HTML code for the pop-up is:

<script src="https://marketingsuite.verticalresponse.com/c/Z1e6Ly5--Z-Zu5r9kXKaug.js"></script>;

I am instructed to "Paste this code into your website at the end of your page, just before the </body> tag."

Question... How can I access the HTML code on my home page so I can paste the HTML code before the </body> tag? OR...can I insert the HTML code in the JavaScript (onload) or JavaScript (ononload) fields under Page Settings -> Advanced Settings?

Hello Robert Meagher
You would place that into an HTML box. Click Insert > More > HTML.

A pop up box is definitely a good way to get people to sign up for a newsletter, but I do want to warn that it can be frustrating if you have repeat visitors to your site.

Hello Robert Meagher

Yes, that is the way to paste code before the </body> tag. It is the HTML element we tried yesterday.

Okay, then there is something wrong on the Homestead end. Can you please escalate this up the technical support line to investigate? Thank you, Elyzabeth.

Hello Robert Meagher

I am definitely tech support here. Unfortunately, this isn't something that we could troubleshoot. The code is 3rd party. Not all HTML will work with Homestead, and we can't troubleshoot another companies code. I will say again, and I did get another opinion, the code you have seems too short to actually have the functionality you are looking for it to have.

Thank you, Elyzabeth. Does Homestead have any 'code' I could use to create a pop-up on my Home page?

Robert,

On this builder, we do not have this element. If you were to rebuild your site in our newest builder, Website Builder, then we do have this element available. If you build the site yourself, it would only cost the time it takes to build it, it wouldn't increase your billing. Add a new site in Websites Manager and it will automatically be created in the newer builder.

Otherwise, you can look into Constant Contact. I know that they work with Homestead:
