    Hi, I'd like to change the value of the Name and Email input fields. Where in the code do I find these? Thank you.

    Hey there!

    The plugin for WordPress actually pulls these values directly from your MailChimp list. So, you'll want to edit the fields in your MailChimp list, first and then update the list in WordPress.

    How do I add more fields to my list?: http://eepurl.com/gOHW

    To update the list, in your WordPress dashboard, go to "Settings" -> "MailChimp Setup" -> "Update List".

    Hi there, I'm a self taught WordPresser not a CSSer. I've read lots of links on this forum about altering /tailoring the sign up fields, the widths and display parameters etc. Apologies if these questions have already been answered - it looks like it's a bit of a nightmare for you to customize CSS solution code for every requirement! 1. When people are suggesting CSS code, can I just clarify that they mean to add that into the main style sheet unless otherwise specified (ie. widget.php)? 2. Whatever I do, I can't seem to get rid of the box title "Email **Required Field". In other posts you say this is directly taken from the list/design/form in MailChimp but you can't delete the asterisks or red text "Required Field" in MailChimp and I can't find clues in the CSS text. It looks kinda clunky. Any advice? Thanks.

    Hey hey!

    For question #1, CSS code can work from various places (for example you can have multiple .css files on a single webpage), so there isn't necessarily only a single place where CSS can be set/added to.

    Within the scope of the type of issues that we're dealing with in this forum (styling the plugin's sign up form), it's safe to say that most of the CSS code suggestions here are dealing with something you can simply apply to the end of your WordPress theme's style.css file, which is found under Appearance > Editor in your WordPress admin area.

    For question #2, the "*Required Field" text can be hidden by adding a bit of CSS code to your style.css file (the same file mentioned above, under Appearance > Editor). Here's the CSS code that you'll want to add:

    #mc-indicates-required {
    display: none;}

    I was able to get that by looking a few pages back in the forum and finding this post here and I went ahead and tested it out on my end and it looks like this does the trick!

    If you have any questions, let us know!

    For your patience, thank you! For the quick tour of CSS, thank you (I was fiddling about with MC plugin editor / MC widget.php). It worked perfectly! I had spent hours and hours and hours trying to fiddle with my MailChimp list settings to no avail. I would hug you in cyberspace if I could, but I guess that would be overstepping the mark, so a polite two-handed cyber handshake to you instead, extended from a headache-free happy Wellingtonian. Ah the relief!

    Hey hey,

    Glad to hear :) Consider the e-handshake reciprocated! If you have anymore questions, just let us know.
