[Pro] MailChimp Subscribe Page

I believe I’ve successfully implemented this form to subscribe people to the email list. But, I would like to edit the markup so that “* indicates required” (top right of the page) is not so small. I’ve edited the rest of the font in the markup, but that bit isn’t changing for some reason.

Also, I tried to edit the MailChimp code so that all three fields were required. (The default is that only the email is required). I did something wrong, because although I have an * saying it’s required, it will allow the form to go through without kicking up an error message if I leave one of the fields blank. I’m sure I missed copying a bit of code.

And, if I’m really picky… Can the * be in the same location for all three fields? (probably related to a similar copying error above).

Thank you!!!

so that “* indicates required” (top right of the page) is not so small.

#mc_embed_signup .indicates-required { font-size: whateverpx !important; }

Can the * be in the same location for all three fields?

Which location do you want it to be in? But I think I would just add it after the label ie Email Address *, First Name * etc.

Also, I tried to edit the MailChimp code so that all three fields were required.

Can you share that code with us?

Hi David,

Here is the code from MailChimp before I screwed it up:

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

* indicates required
Email Address *
First Name
Last Name

David,

After messing around on the MailChimp site more, I found a button to make all the fields required and it changed the code for me. I think I’ve got it now.

I needed this:

    #mc_embed_signup .indicates-required { font-size: whateverpx !important; }

And if it wasn’t for this forum I would be up a creek without a paddle!!!
