    I'm trying to add custom text to input area and also take the text on the outside of the box away.

    For adding text, you have a few options. The plugin has a built-in feature which will take the "Default Merge Tag Value" set inside of your MailChimp list, and make that the default value pre-filled in your sign up form field's input area. This article walks through how to set Default Merge Tag Values up:

    Once those are set up, make sure to go in your plugin's settings in the WordPress admin area and refresh/update your list info.

    Alternatively, if you prefer "placeholder" text, you can use the workaround/alteration to the code, suggested by a fellow WordPress user here:


    In regards to making the field labels hidden, you can do that by setting some CSS code like so:

    #mc_signup_form .mc_var_label {
    display: none;
