For the widget on the sidebar I want to move the submit button next to the email field instead of it being under it. There’s just so much empty space there.
Anyone know how I can do this?January 27, 2013 at 11:03 pm #7057
You should code your own form or try to play with CSS rules to change the alignment.

Firstly: I really like the Newsletter plugin. I am professionally working in the field of emailmarketing, and the plugin really has the right functionality!
My question is the same as above from Lenton. My custom form stil does not show the Submit on the same line as the email field. It’s just as if there is a CSS that I cannot overwrite. Could you point out where exactly I can edit the CSS? I seem not to find it.
Thanks a lot, and keep up the good work! 🙂

Hi, actually you should code a custom form or try to play with css. I’m thinking to improve the forms, but they are so complicated (due to preferences and so on) it’s not easy to make them customizable with an option panel.

Hi Stefano, thanks, my problem was I did not know how to override the theme css. With a little trial and error I managed do do it 🙂

Hier een landgenoot…
Mag ik vragen waar je het uiteindelijk hebt aangepast in de css?

Sorry I can understand only English. Can you rewrite your message?

Marc here, in English this time…
I have the same question as the guys above.
I want to place the send button next to the enter email box.
To do that I created a custom form, but after saving, it’s still not on the same line.
I need to make a change to the css, but I can’t find it,
do you have any suggestions in which css location I can change this?
Keep up the great work…

Hi all, I found the answer myself. It’s quite easy.
Even if you create your own custom form, the style of it will most likely still be determined by the themestyle (in my case sitting in the default.css file in my theme folder). That seems the case in your situations (and has been in mine :-)).
What you need to do, is to “overwrite” the style definitions of the theme css, and put your own definitions instead. In fact the customized CSS will be given more importance/priority than definitions made in the Default.css.
How to customize:
– go to the css file of your theme that you can customize
– in my case it is called style.css (the default.css had comments in it that told me not to make changes to the default.css but only in the style.css: the advantage being that theme updates will not restore default theme layouts)
– in there you can define a class that will determine the look and feel of your form
– in my case they were general form layouts
Hope this helps! Good luck 🙂
