Is Bravenet's code incompatible with WordPress 2.7.1? (3 posts)

    Hi, I'm using WordPress 2.7.1 I have a static page as my home page on my blogsite. I copied and pasted the code from Bravenet into the end of my page text for a mailing list sign-up box from Bravenet. I've had some people tell me that they fill out the name and email fields and hit "subscribe" and nothing happens.

    What could be wrong? Maybe I need to have someone to go inside my site's Dashboard and look at the code? I trust my one friend to do it.

    Or, should I just hunker down and take an HTML class?

    This is really a big deal because my mailing list is really important to my business. So, I'd really appreciate any help.

    should I just hunker down and take an HTML class?

    Yes :-) But not only to resolve this issue.

    First thing to look at - does your form have an "action" attached to it? Or does your form rely on some kind of javascript that means that hitting the "enter" button is broken as a submission method?

    Give us a link to your site and we can take a look.

    Thanks for writing back :)

    I believe my form has a javascript in it.

    The weirdest thing is that I repasted the code yesterday and was able to unsubscribe myself. But, today, I couldn't subscribe myself...ugh.

    My site is http://www.angelbearhugs.com I'm a bit shy about sharing it, but oh well...lol. It's a work in progress, so not perfect as of yet.

    I'm searching for a good on-line HTML class...I learn best that way. But, I may have someone design me a custom theme with all the bells and whistles LOL.
