I have a widget-less WordPress theme to which I want to add Subscribe by Email functionality.

Unfortunatly the plugin only comes in the form of a widget.

How can I use the widget functionality without widget support.

It is a little bulky for complex widgets, but you can call any widget in any place (no sidebar required) with the_widget() function.
