    Can you send me a link to your site with the widget active? There are a number of widget areas in Education and want to ensure I can be efficient when tackling this one.

    I’m heading to sleep, but will check it out tomorrow.

    I, too, am about ready to pack it in for the night.

    Although the site is http://hbcmemphis.org, it doesn’t have the offending widget in place now. I had to revert to Feedburner because the website was scheduled to go live tomorrow. I’d like to use MailChimp if we can get the banner to display properly.

    Thanks for your help.

    Makes sense 🙂 Same location as the one in place now? I’ll see what I can do with Education’s CSS for ya.

    Yes, same location; I just used the Call to Action widget to configure it. I’ll check back tomorrow afternoon.

    Here’s my stab at it. Generally, you’ll likely just have to adjust these values to get it to work.

    That said, you don’t have to use the first/last name fields if you don’t want to. Just leave the first/last name field name settings blank. Offering since the Feedburner form wouldn’t accept names anyhow.

    To your theme’s style.css, try adding:
    .enews #subscribe { margin-top: -45px; }

    Change:
    #home-featured .call-to-action .enews p { line-height: 110px; } (previously 130px, near line 699 of the original theme.

    Remove:
    #home-featured .call-to-action .enews form { display: inline } (near line 709)

    That produces this:

    Cheers!

    On the desktop, the changes you prescribed did render the result in the picpaste image, but it didn’t work for the netbook or the phone screen. Instead, the three input fields were too large and they partially covered the “Stay in Touch” line above them.

    I had thought that I’d be happy enough with only the email address field, so I attempted to “Just leave the first/last name field name settings blank.” Come to find out, I hadn’t put anything in those fields anyway; they’re already blank. I’d be glad to erase them if I knew the necessary emendations to the CSS (so long as the remaining box knew how to position itself, as it did with the Feedburner setup).

    Returning the CSS to its original condition and leaving those field settings blank in the widget does produce a result in the “mobile responsive” display: only the email field appears there. But the first & last name fields continue to show on the netbook and desktop.

    I currently have the widget configured for MailChimp. http://hbcmemphis.org

    It appears that there are single spaces in those field settings, which would make them render.

    http://sp.brandonkraft.net/ has been set to show what it’ll look like with those spaces removed.

    You da man! I don’t know how those blank spaces got into those fields, but I deleted them and the results are satisfactory. Thanks a bunch.

    Good to hear.

    Education is a great theme; the only problem is (for me, at least) it was designed before the name fields were an option, so many of the cool places to add a subscribe form just can’t easily add them. Much simpler to not include them if they’re not required 🙂

    Cheers and Happy Easter!
