    I followed your instructions and was able to integrate the mailchimp form to my site. I am using studio press Outreach (new) child theme and would like to set a Email Newsletter signup form exactly like demo site. How I can style that?

    Sorry my site is in maintenance mode so cannot share the link but following is the code I have in the footer text widget.

    <!-- Begin MailChimp Signup Form -->
    <link href="http://cdn-images.mailchimp.com/embedcode/slim-081711.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <style type="text/css">
    	.enews p {
    	margin: 0 0 10px;
    .enews #subbox {
    	-moz-border-radius: 5px;
    	-moz-border-radius-bottomright: 0;
    	-moz-border-radius-topright: 0;
    	-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    	-webkit-border-bottom-right-radius: 0;
    	-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 0;
    	border: none;
    	border-radius: 5px;
    	border-bottom-right-radius: 0;
    	border-top-right-radius: 0;
    	color: #aaa;
    	font-style: italic;
    	margin: 0 -7px 0 0;
    	padding: 13px 15px 12px;
    	width: 160px;
    #footer-widgets .enews #subbox {
    	width: 150px;
    	/* Add your own MailChimp form style overrides in your site stylesheet or in this style block.
    	   We recommend moving this block and the preceding CSS link to the HEAD of your HTML file. */
    <!-- This section below is what we need for Genesis eNews Extended to work -->
    <!-- The following line is where we find the URL needed for the Form Action field -->
    <div><strong><form action="http://mfmwestchester.us6.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=f03e35b5c0&id=cf8f012d84" method="post" id="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" name="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate></strong></div>
    <div><strong> <label for="mce-EMAIL">Join our mailing list for updates!</label></strong></div>
    <!-- The name="EMAIL" from the line below is what we need for e-mail field name -->
    <div><strong> <input type="email" value="" name="EMAIL" id="mce-EMAIL" placeholder="email address" required></strong></div>
    <!-- That's it! No hidden fields with MailChimp if you use this style of code -->
    <div><div><input type="submit" value="Go" name="Go" id="mc-embedded-subscribe"></div></div>
    <div><!--End mc_embed_signup-->
    <!--End mc_embed_signup-->

    I will appreciate the help. Thank you!

    There is no styling required. The beauty of the plugin is it just works with StudioPress themes and some other Genesis themes that follow the same styling nomenclature.

    Don't use a footer text widget. Drop the Genesis eNews Extended widget into the footer of your choice.

    For form action: http://mfmwestchester.us6.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=f03e35b5c0&id=cf8f012d84

    for e-mail field name: EMAIL

    Thank you so much! Your solution worked as magic. I have been always a big fan of using mail chimp but was not happy with the look of sign up form. Now with the help of your plugin I can enjoy mail chimp even more,

    Thank you again for this great plugin as well for your continue support to resolve the issues for all of us who use your plugin.
