Footer Widget Embed?

    I'm trying to add a simple email subscribe form to a footer via your form widget. Any suggestions? The embedded form is a mess. Do I need to style it using my own CSS? Do need to turn off your css? What the best method?

    Try adding the following CSS towards the bottom of your theme's style.css file or wherever you are instructed to place custom CSS.

    #footer .gform_widget .gform_wrapper .gform_fields .gfield {
    background: none !important;
    padding: 0 !important;
    }
    #footer .gform_widget .gform_wrapper .gform_fields .gfield_label {
    float: none;
    }

    To make the email input wider you can edit the form in admin and on the advanced tab of your email field set the 'Field Size' to 'Large'.

    Your form should then look like this, http://i.imgur.com/7GVbFZl.png

    Richard, thank you! This css works perfectly! Any recommendations on styling the submit button? Plain white with no hover indication is a bit too plain.

    You would target the submit button like so

    #footer .gform_widget .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input[type="submit"] {
    /*normal state styles go here*/
    }
    #footer .gform_widget .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input[type="submit"]:hover {
    /* hover state styles go here*/
    }

    You can find some readymade gradients or make your own on the following site http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/
