[resolved] Customize the [jetpack_subscription_form] shortcode? (5 posts)

    The following shortcode...


    is great for dropping a subscription form into a page, but it displays the default text, "Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email."

    Is there any way to personalize that? I'm aware it can be done with widgets in a sidebar. Just wondering if it could be done with the shortcode.

    The shortcode only offers one option at the moment: you can remove the line mentioning the number of subscribers on your site like so:

    [jetpack_subscription_form show_subscribers_total="false"]

    I took note of your feedback though, and we'll consider adding more customization options in a future Jetpack update.

    Thanks. I wanted to drop into a sidebar that wasn't widgetized -- I wanted more hands on control over how the sidebar looked. And ended up creating a widgetized sidebar just for the subscription code, and then dropped that into the non-widgetized sidebar.

    Sounds like a lot of messing around, but it did the trick. And I could then customize it.

    Hey guys, I would love to be able to customize this form and place it in every single post. I know how to place it, but I don't know how to customize it, even if what I want to do it may be quite easy.

    Can you help me to just place a background image and add the [email] field in the middle of that image? Is all I need to make a superb call to action email suscription. Is it possible??

    Thanks in advance!

    @dalavert You can customize the form by making changes to your theme stylesheet, or by adding custom CSS code to your custom CSS editor under Appearance > Edit CSS in your dashboard.

    The Subscription form is wrapped in a .jetpack_subscription_widget container, so you can use this CSS class to target the form.
