    Hi,

    Is it possible to put a contact form in the side bar which appears throughout the website, so that readers can enter their email address and it gets sent through to me so i can add to my list? Or does the contact form only work on the contact us page?

    Alternatively if it cannot go into the side bar is it possible to just put it on a generic page?

    Tim.

    Hey Tim!

    Thank you for expressing interest in our items!

    To answer your question: the contact form can be inserted into any page or post using the special form generator, which lets you add or remove fields and adjust other settings. You can also insert the form into any of the widgetized areas, by simply copying the shortcode generated by the in-page form insertion system into a text widget.

    If you’re using any of the popular subscription and mailing services such as MailChimp or Mad Mimi, I would highly recommend using the relevant third-party widgets (e.g. this and this) since they also allow for easy synchronization and mailing list management.

    Should you have more questions, do not hesitate to ask!

    Sincerely,

    Hi Andrew…

    I signed up for MailChimp and uploaded the widget, but the sign-up form is too big for the sidebar widget area and ends up cut off on one side. Is there a fix for this? Would Mad Mimi work better…

    Thanks,
    Susan

    Dear Susan,

    could you please provide the URL of the web page in question? I would need to look at the code to provide the exact solution.

    Thank you!

    Sure Andrew…

    And by the way, I made a switch to Mad Mimi because the sign-up form is less intrusive and I like the simplicity of their design…the widget has the same problem as the MailChimp widget did though…

    Dear Susan,

    to fix the appearance of the Mad Mimi widget, please go to “Appearance -> Editor” and add these lines to the bottom of the “style.css” file (should be opened by default):

    #sidebar .madmimi h3 { float: none !important; }
    #sidebar .madmimi p { margin: 10px 0 !mportant; padding-left: 12px !important; }
    #sidebar .madmimi form input { float: none !important; }
    #sidebar .madmimi form .button { margin-top: 10px !important; }
    #sidebar .madmimi form { padding-left: 12px !important; }

    Do not forget to press “Update file” afterwards to save the changes!

    Let me know if the code works as intended.

    Sincerely,
    Andrew | Satori Studio

    Hi again…

    ok, the sigm-up widget looks great, but when i tested it by entering my own email it got crazy.
    It returned a bunch code above my top menu and the alignment at the side is off again.
    help!

    ok…you can scratch the former post, but I still need some help.
    I de-installed the madmimi widget when I realized it was a 3rd party widget, and re-installed the MailChimp widget. It is working fine but the sign-up form is still too big and it screws up the text layout.
    Any (more) help would be much appreciated :-)

    Susan
