    Hi Stefano,

    I have added the Newsletter widget to the footer of my site http://www.cubacustomtours.com and have checked “use old form” so I can get the labels in the text boxes. I have also enable the name form field and changed the label to: “Name (optional)”.

    However, I would like to NOT use the old form but when I do that the labels do not show. Is it possible to have a little header above each box that labels what the box is? For example, ABOVE the name box I’d like to say NAME and above the email box to say E-MAIL.

    Is that possible and how, please?

    Thanks

    Hi, the widget (new format) already has the labels over the fields… if you activate it on your site I can check why they do not appear.

    Stefano.

    I think I know what you meant. I am using the NEWSLETTER widget (not the NEWSLETTER MINIMAL) and I Unchecked “use old form…”. It still does not show the labels. Please, have a look.. Thx

    Stefano, I had to remove it NEWSLETTER widget and put the NEWSLETTER MINIMAL but you can see what I am saying if you go to this page http://cubacustomtours.com/newsletter/ .

    See how the fields immediately below the menu bar? No name or email labels showing.

    Please, advise.

    Thanks

    PS.: I have “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” checked here in the forum but I never get notified..!!!

    Stefano,

    After I spent many hours debugging this, it appears that it might be a styling (CSS) issue.
    And the reason I say “styling issue” is because if I “select all” (CTRL+A) on the newsletter page in a browser, the labels are THERE; they just do not show..!!!

    I also found these WARNINGS in the source code of my newsletter page:

    <b>Warning</b>: include(/home/cubacust/public_html/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/subscription/styles/shortcode/default.css): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in <b>/home/cubacust/public_html/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/subscription/subscription.php</b> on line <b>893</b><br />
    <br />
    <b>Warning</b>: include(): Failed opening ‘/home/cubacust/public_html/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/subscription/styles/shortcode/default.css’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in <b>/home/cubacust/public_html/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/subscription/subscription.php</b> on line <b>893</b><br />

    This directory does not exist:
    styles/shortcode/default.css

    Please, investigate and revert ASAP.

    Many thanks

    Ciao Stefano,

    Have you had a chance to take a look?

    There isn’t much to investigate asap; the text is on the right place, but a white text on a white background. Just simple select text in that area with your mouse and you will see the text. The warnings could mean the files are missing? (they should exist)

    Guido, Thanks for that “insightful” reply but, as already stated in one of my previous posts here, when I select the text I can see it…!!! I do NOT have any custom code for colour. Additionally, as mentioned here above, if I add the NEWSLETTER widget and deselect “use old form”, I do NOT see the labels; if I select “use old form”, I do see them. See my dilemma? Why do show in one case and not the other?

    Stefano, please jump in any time and shed some light on this 🙂 . Thanks

    Well, for anyone interested that may run into this, I finally resolved it by adding custom CSS in my theme options to make the color black so the labels show:
    .tnp-subscription label {
    color: #000000;
    }

    The newsletter/subscription/style.css has the color set to “inherit”.
