    Hi there,
    Since that string is coded into the plugin, you can't really change that without modifying the plugin files.

    You could try using another plugin to let you alter the text string without altering the files. See if this plugin will do the trick.

    Hey,

    Your link is broken. Can you fix it and let us know?

    The only text that can be changed currently is the button text. We may add the ability to further customize text in the future. You can adjust spacing by using custom CSS in your theme or a plugin like Simple Custom CSS.

    Hi,

    I am using MailBag for my website http://demo.infotyke.com/uffshop/ this is testbed. MailBag, through short code on Footer area. (Footer, Bottom Right)

    Problem: Color/Size and Layout is different on different pages.

    For Example, On Page http://demo.infotyke.com/uffshop/my-account/ it looks good and appropriate. (The problem is since start, However- as of now - I have added some css change in custom css).

    .mailbag-wrap input[type="submit"]
    {
    color:#fff;
    border:2px solid #FFFFFF;
    }

    But on Home page and rest other pages, like http://demo.infotyke.com/uffshop/ the behavior is change. Text box field is smaller & filthy and color coding is different.

    Looking Forward to hear from You!

    Thank You!

    It looks like WooCommerce is styling buttons and form fields on pages where it operates. You'll need to copy those styles if you want that same look on non-WooCommerce pages.

    Hello :) I applied the campaign monitor shortcode to a text sidebar widget on my staging site blog, and no styles are showing up except for the button. I cannot even seem to find the "enter your name" and "enter your email" words on the side. In the code, those areas seem to be commented out or something. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Here is the link. The button from the plugin says "I'd love to!" and the title is "“What I’ve learned” E-mail list!"

    Any tips/insight would be great! Thank you so much!

    Hi,

    Your theme styles are overriding Mailbag's styles. For the name and email labels, your theme is hiding them with this:

    html.placeholder label[for] {
        display: none;
    }

    The text boxes for entering name and email are being given a white background color back your theme, with this:

    #main input[type=text],
    #main input[type=email],
    #main input[type=password],
    #main input[type=email],
    #main input[type=search],
    #main input[type=date],
    #main input[type=range],
    #main input[type=number],
    #main textarea,
    #main select {
        background-color: #ffffff;
    }

    You'll need to make adjustments to make things visible.
