    trying to create a sign up form for wordpress with mail chimp
    Hi guys,

    Got a wordpress blog and i'v been trying to put an email sign up option onto the widgets part of my blog

    Something like this.

    I am using MailChimp for my campaigns and lists and i have made a full page squeeze page which looks horrible so im trying something else but the coding is just coming up on my site and not the sign up box

    It looks like this:

    <!-- Begin MailChimp Signup Form -->
    <link href="//" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <style type="text/css">
    #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. */
    <div id="mc_embed_signup">
    <form action="//;id=8bcdb2622c" method="post" id="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" name="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate>
    <div id="mc_embed_signup_scroll">
    <h2>Subscribe to our mailing list</h2>
    <div class="indicates-required"><span class="asterisk">*</span> indicates required</div>
    <div class="mc-field-group">
    <label for="mce-EMAIL">Email Address <span class="asterisk">*</span>
    <input type="email" value="" name="EMAIL" class="required email" id="mce-EMAIL">
    <div class="mc-field-group">
    <label for="mce-FNAME">First Name </label>
    <input type="text" value="" name="FNAME" class="" id="mce-FNAME">
    <div class="mc-field-group">
    <label for="mce-LNAME">Last Name </label>
    <input type="text" value="" name="LNAME" class="" id="mce-LNAME">
    <div id="mce-responses" class="clear">
    <div class="response" id="mce-error-response" style="display:none"></div>
    <div class="response" id="mce-success-response" style="display:none"></div>
    </div> <!-- real people should not fill this in and expect good things - do not remove this or risk form bot signups-->
    <div style="position: absolute; left: -5000px;"><input type="text" name="b_68fe0024b56205e5e99cd982f_8bcdb2622c" tabindex="-1" value=""></div>
    <div class="clear"><input type="submit" value="Subscribe" name="subscribe" id="mc-embedded-subscribe" class="button"></div>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='//'></script><script type='text/javascript'>(function($) {window.fnames = new Array(); window.ftypes = new Array();fnames[0]='EMAIL';ftypes[0]='email';fnames[1]='FNAME';ftypes[1]='text';fnames[2]='LNAME';ftypes[2]='text';}(jQuery));var $mcj = jQuery.noConflict(true);</script>
    <!--End mc_embed_signup-->

    anyone know how i can fix this please?

    I am not sure if you can copy & paste the mailchimp code into a blog. It's a free blog. It's just treating the code as text.

    You need a hosted blog that runs on the wordpress blogging s/w that you download from and install on your webhost.

    Also on a separate note you can't do any marketing from a blog, it's forbidden by their TOS.
