Widgets Actin' Up (4 posts)

    Hello all,

    Trying to insert my submit form into the footer of my WP right now at http://www.ewfmodern.com.

    Here is a link diagramming out the issues that I am having. Essentially, each widget bar appears as its own column, and I only have room for 3. Trying to nest the signup form into another column. I figured there would be a short code to call it and I could just drop that in, however, I have yet to find it.

    Is this possible? Please don't make me do that hacky solution of duping my audience with an image of a sign up form that links to the real thing.

    Thanks so much,
    Wyatt

    hey Wyatt!

    Thanks for posting. In the screenshot, it looks like by adding the widget, it's causing some unexpected movement of your content, which is resulting in the "Footer" labeled portion of your screenshot.

    To answer your first question, there is a shortcode that the plugin supports, which is:

    [mailchimpsf_form]

    The other advanced options for adding the form can be found here:

    If you see that the above shortcode doesn't resolve the problem for you, this may ultimately be a conflict with the theme's CSS, if I'm understanding correctly. Is there any chance you would then be able to link me to a live site that has the widget added? Or, if possible, would you be able to active the plugin, save the source code as an HTML page, then email it to me at mailchimptk[at]gmail.com? That'll allow me to assess the HTML code as well.

    Look forward to hearing back!

    Shortcode worked great!

    Now, there are some unnecessary break tags in the code that mucking things up. Sent you an email from my work account: designstudio@ewfmodern.com.

    Thanks!

    Hey Wyatt,

    Thanks for sending me that email with the example code you're getting. In using the shortcode and PHP code alternatives, I was not able to produce a signup form that output the "br" tags as you're seeing.

    Can you confirm for me the version of the plugin you're using, as well as which specific code you're using to insert the signup form?
