Magento Newsletter submit does not add subscription

I am new to Magento and would appreciate some help.

I struggled to add the newsletter widget to my left column.

I was able to do so by : 1) Going to CMS-->Widget and creating a new Widget, with the type as CMS Static Block, my title i set as Newsletter. I set to display on all pages, and the block reference i set to Left Column. 2) I then went to CMS-->Static Blocks, created a new block called newsletter and updated the content with:

{{block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="left.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}

However if I do this, then the block does not show up, if I change it to

 {{block type="core/template" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}

the widget show, but does not update update subscription, I understand from other posts that this will not work.

What do I need to do tho get the newsletter/subscribe working?

Hi @SEWEB2

 

Have you tried it using xml file modification?

Open \app\design\frontend\base\default\layout\newsletter.xml file and check 

 

<default>
        <!-- Mage_Newsletter -->
        <reference name="left">
            <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="left.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"/>
        </reference>
 </default>

Above mentioned in by default and newsletter section is in left side only, now in your theme location open newsletter.xml file and check what is set there in place of 

<reference name="left">

 You should be able to modify accordingly.(Also check which page layout you are using)

 

Also check  http://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/32257/how-to-move-newsletter-block-from-footer-to-left-in...
