    Because i clicked that it didnt work...

    I installed it and the form appeared, but with some serious styling problems. I know for SURE they weren't coming from my site's style sheets or other plugins. I proved this by taking the embed code and adding my own styling - that worked ok.

    The plugin added over 500px crazy spacing on the top it's container div ( somehow it's height was being calculated incorrectly and i couldn't comabt it with css ) .. also the fragments of text in the fone number field should have a span or something around them - they don't so they were impossible to target in relation the the form fields for the phone number.

    the list goes on.

    Hey venkmanuk,

    Thanks for posting to the forum. So that I can take a closer look, can you send me a link to the site that has the active sign up form on it? This will help me take a closer look to see why that odd space is happening, as well as to try and replicate the issues with the phone number field that you're seeing.

    I look forward to hearing back!

    Hey hey,

    Sounds good! It's tough to say what's causing that to happen with just the info I have right now, but generally this type of issue indicates that there's an issue or conflict with the plugin's CSS and the preexisting stylesheet that's being used on the site, so ultimately it's something that we'd have to look at the site's source code for to try and narrow it down.

    If you'd like, you can send me a screenshot of how it's displaying, along with the HTML code (so just an the HTML file of the page is fine) to mailchimptk[at]gmail.com, and I'd be happy to take a look. That way, you don't have to send me a live link. But if it's more convenient, I can just wait on that live link to be setup for testing too, whichever works!
