I'm trying to integrate the gravity form with the signup option in the Generate box (a feature box).
I have a form with an email field and title field. I have a fresh api from aweber
I have a feed to a list at aweber.
I have a short code created using the wysiwyg dashboard of a page template (not published)
[gravityform id="1" name="email1" description="false"]
The feature box is activated by adding a text widget to the box 'element' at the widgets page.
There is a section of the php code which creates the text in the black area where one adds the code for the form. This works for aweber generated forms. However, they dominate and I don't like them which is a large part of why I purchased Gravity. The area is marked by a line: < —place your form code here—> The code from Gravity has to be placed with <> but without  or the code shows.
When I do it the way that appears to make sense, NOTHING happens. I thought for awhile that getting the shortcode through the page template was part of the problem, but that doesn't make sense. Someone at StudioPress, when I presented that possibility, suggested some php changes which blew my installation to smithereens, the way php errors can do.
Has anyone any experience with the feature box widget?
Thank you very much for your assistance.
