[3] Redirect – paste a URL address the user will be redirected to upon clicking the link.

There is also a straightforward way of creating an opt-in link with just HTML. Type $opt-in$ into the code, it should look like this:

<a href="$opt-in$">Subscribe </a>

While sending the message this link is replaced with a real one, redirecting to an opt-in page generated for each recipient individually.
