Embed MailChimp Form Code

MailChimp newsletter signup form can be added as a Text Widget to any sidebar location. To do this, simply go to your Mailchimp list > Signup Forms > Embedded Forms and copy the embed code.

Paste the embed code into a Text Widget and assign it to any sidebar location. Remove the following lines from the top of the embed code to ensure that the theme formatting applies correctly.

<style type="text/css"><br>#mc_embed_signup{background:#fff; clear:left; font:14px Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; }<br />/* Add your own MailChimp form style overrides in your site stylesheet or in this style block.<br /> We recommend moving this block and the preceding CSS link to the HEAD of your HTML file. */<br /></style>
