Setting up a simple custom member subscription form with Ghost. (Without any theme editing)

I recently set up a custom member subscription form on Ghost that lets people sign up to my email newsletter. I didn’t want any fancy features like custom access levels or member profile pages, just a plain and simple email newsletter subscription.

I hit a couple of gotchas in the process and ended up having to dig through a couple of different docs to set things up correctly. But it finally works!

Anyway, I compiled all the information I found on setting up a form, displaying status messages, and configuring Mailgun for both transactional and newsletter email here. Hopefully, it’s helpful to anyone of you trying to do this.

Hey @nmathew87, looks like your link is not working (502 bad gateway).

Hey sorry about that! It’s back on now!
