    Using widget 0.8.10.

    Signups are not working - just get the failure message displayed.
    Web server error logs do not display anything.

    I have a 404 logger plugin and it has the following url recorded:

    Any suggestions on debugging this?

    Hmmm... Do you have a url where I could try it out?

    I think that the error appears when the entered email address is already a subscriber. If this is the case then, is it possible to report that to the user?

    You can try my yahoo.com email address that has the same prefix as my WordPress.org username.

    I think you're 100% correct that the widget needs to get a bit more sophisticated in its error messages. I'm trying to find a moment to do an improvement to the markup generated by the widget without breaking it for users out there already. After that, and prior to feeling ready to bless a 1.0 release, I want to address the issue around error messages. Thank you so much for your feedback!

    Speaking of widget markup, I noticed that error messages cannot contain html.
    I tried to add a link to the site's contact page for when people encounter an error but I saw the a href code instead.

    That behavior is intentional, as a security measure (esp. for multisite). Some users probably should be able to implement html markup in the response text, but in general, it seems like it should be restricted.
