    Hey there, David!

    The easiest way to do that sort of thing is to include the shortcode for the plugin. Here’s the instructions from the “Installation” page:

    If you are using WordPress v2.8 or higher, you can use the short-code:

    [mailchimpsf_form]

    If you are adding it inside a php code block, pop this in:

    mailchimpSF_signup_form();

    Or, if you are dropping it in between a bunch of HTML, use this:

    <?php mailchimpSF_signup_form(); ?>

    Let us know if we can assist in any other way!

    Cheers

    thanks for the reply 🙂

    i am a total novice at web coding. when i insert the short-code [mailchimpsf_form] at the bottom of my post, i get a version of the form ,but with no kind of formatting 🙁 the subscribe button is all over the place.

    is it possible to insert into my post a version of the form that looks just like the widget form? here’s the site as it stands, see how the form appears on the top right:

    Hey again, David!

    When I look at my WordPress setup, the shortcode should inherit any styling applied to the normal widget area. So, if I use MailChimp’s built in styling, I can change the background color in both:

    Any styling that’s applied through CSS should also carry over despite the use of shortcodes, as well:

    Any way you could post a screenshot of what you’re seeing, as I wasn’t able to find the form within the footer of your posts, I’m afraid. 🙁

    Cheers
