I have tried countless times, reviewing and re doing the steps related to the newsletter widget set. 
I use the code: 
“<p>Sign up blah blah blah. Enter your email address below.</p>
<div class=”input-append”>
<input type=”text” placeholder”
***email here***”class=”span7″>
<input type=”submit” value=”Subscribe” class=”btn btn-danger”>
</div>”
Also I have followed and set up an email campaign as well as list on MailChimp but still do not understand what to copy in ***email here***?
I have tried the link, html code, email address…Nothing works?
Please specify exactly what is to be pasted here?
Thanks

Hi, To resolve this issue, you can use the plugin, please the plugin here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/newsletter/

Thanks Dominic, I have done this, installed and activated the plugin. But how does one pull the css for the widget as above. Currently its just standard and looks really ugly.

Even when I use the code above and use the tag in the email it displays double newsletter forms.

Please help, I need a detailed explanation.

To resolve this issue, you can add the following code to the Header code (Dashboard > Customize > Custom code)

<style>
.newsletter-submit {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #fc615d;
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: bold;
    padding: 10px 20px;
}

.newsletter-submit:hover {
    opacity: 0.8;  
}

.newsletter.newsletter-widget {
    padding-left: 2px;
}
.newsletter-email {
    color: #999 !important;
    width: 240px;
}
.newsletter-email:focus{
    border: none!important;
}
</style>

Hope this helps !

Dominic, hello! Thanks for your reply, however it’s not solved. I put the button this way to “solve”it temporarily. I want to show it like in the DW Fixel DEMO, it means the email field followed by the button, in the same line (together). Can you help me?

<style>
.newsletter-submit { float: left; }
.newsletter-email {
height: 35px !importantmargin-top: 3px; }
</style>

Hope this helps !
