[resolved] [Plugin: Wysija Newsletters] Styling the widget (29 posts)

    I just switched to this plugin and am loving it so far, but one thing I'm not sure about is how to change the CSS style of the widget itself (not its contents). What I would like is to use a different background/border colour than the other widgets, to make this one stand out.

    Now, I could probably edit my functions.php file to get this to work, but I would prefer to add the widget manually, so I can add it in my single post/page template files as well.

    Is there a function that can do this?

    Thanks for your help!

    I sort of fixed this problem myself by creating a custom sidebar for the widget.

    It works fine so far, but for some reason the following CSS code has stopped working:

    .widget_wysija input[name="wysija[user][email]"] { ...your styles... }

    What I want to do is make the width 100%. It worked before, but stopped working when I added it to a different sidebar.

    My CSS code is:

    .widget_wysija input[name="wysija[user][email]"] {
    width: 100%;
    }

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Naz, CSS depends highly on your theme, this is why we leave the customization to our users and generally don't support it.

    But if you give me your page's address, I might be able to help.

    Thanks for your response.

    The website's URL is http://www.justhonest.net, but I temporarily removed the widget as I'm having problems sending e-mails (as mentioned in my other topic).

    Thanks!

    I re-added the widget to the sidebar.

    The HTML of the input field is:
    <input type="text" name="wysija[user][email]" class="wysija-email validate[required,custom[email]]" id="form-wysija-nl-iframe-2-wysija-to">

    This should do it, using the ID:

    #form-wysija-nl-iframe-2-wysija-to {width:100%}

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, that didn't do it either. :-\

    I'm also having a problem with the text not showing up on the 'Subscribe' button on this page: http://www.justhonest.net/newsletter/

    I had the same problem when I manually added the widget code to the sidebar (instead of using a widget), which is why I switched back to the widget. But now I'm getting this problem again when I add the subscription form in the visual editor.

    How would I fix this?

    Thanks!

    Naz, your subscribe button is missing the value attribute:

    <input type="submit" value="" name="submit" class="wysija-submit wysija-submit-field">

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. How would I fix this? I added the form using the Wysija Subscription Form button in the visual editor. Button label is set to the default text, "Subscribe!", and there is no option to change the value of the input field.

    Naz, can you open a ticket on support.wysija.com ? It's better for the Wysija team to follow up there.

    Well, it's finally happened. Styling like you've never seen before and the combination with another leading plugin. Magic Action Box and Wysija!

    Check out this page on my site for a taste - http://www.geekandjock.com/inspired-tweets-ebook-inspiration

    You can see just 2 of a whole range of different styles and setting up a box takes minutes. Been working with the guys to make this happen since I found styling in Wysija to be a real pain, to get the eyeballs to notice and sign up.

    Happy days to both plugins!

    You're fast! I was waiting for the Magic Action Box guys to announce it before I did. :-)

    I already got installed and powering - wow, am I a happy camper.
    The Wysija free version should be rolling out in the next day or so.

    What a great combo!

    Just had a look at the Magic Action Box plug, seems like it will do exactly what I need... the free version is able to change the ugly default Wysija subscribe button? For some reason in 2011 all of my form and product buttons are that old tan button color/box shape and I cant figure out why, where or how to change em ://

    What's the point in using Magic Action Box with this? You can't even add it as a widget!

    You're able to add a Magic Action Box as a sidebar widget using a shortcode. This functionality isn't available in the free version which still allows you in placing opt-in styled Wysija forms at the start or end of the content page.

    Correct, purchased version allows shortcodes and thereby you can add these Action Boxes anywhere, including in a widget. You can see a styled Action Box working on my site too, so you get the idea.
