MailChimp List Subscribe Form

    My website is http://whooplon.com. In the email address text field, where people input their email address (the white text entry field) I'd like to do 2 things: 1) add "Add your email address here" inside the field so people know what they're supposed to do and 2) make the window longer, the size is only 18 and I'd like it to be 40.
    Thanks for your help!

    You can do that using your own css and javascript.

    Hi Jesse, thanks for responding. I used the plugin to download mailchimp. I see what needs to be changed in firebug:
    <input id="mc_mv_EMAIL"class="mc_input"type="text"name="mc_mv_email" value=" "size="18">
    --But I can't find it anywhere and access it (ie change the 18 to a 40, not sure where the text can be added) Any thoughts on how to do this? If you could point me in the right direction, or anything more specific would be tremendously helpful...

    Walking you through css and javascript basics is outside the scope of what we can support. If you find someone a bit more well versed in them, they can likely help.

    You could also try the embed code for your list, though that will come with it's only challenges in keeping javascript includes straight.

    I guess my main question is simply, since the code was embedded via the plugin, are you sure that I can access it? I ask because it's not in any of my files. The issue is not how to change it, as that's pretty straightforward. The issue is, is it even accessible to me. And if so, where does the plugin put the code.

    Yes, you can. The code is all included when the page is rendered which is how you found the input element you referenced.

    Ok! But I don't see it in any of my php files. Where does the plugin typically put the code?
