    Vertical Response generates an ‘opt-in’ mail form which integrates perfectly into typepad, but when i try to paste it into a text widget in my current template [Fjords04 1.0], it all shows up EXCEPT the button or email input box. i’ll put in the code below, if anyone has any ideas, i’d sure love the help. I love wordpress’ style better than typepad, but it’s SOOO easy there, i’d love to know what i’m missing here.. the blog itself currently shows the problem. thanks, todd http://toddreynolds.wordpress.com,

    the html copied from a place where it DOES work… http://toddreynolds.com

    <form method=”post” action=”http://oi.vresp.com?fid=280cf1a0f2″ target=”vr_optin_popup” onSubmit=”window.open( ‘http://www.verticalresponse.com’, ‘vr_optin_popup’, ‘scrollbars=yes,width=600,height=450’ ); return true;” >
    <div style=”font-family: verdana; font-size: 11px; width: 160px; padding: 10px; border: 1px solid #000000; background: #FFFFFF;”> <span style=”color: #333333;”>Sign up for Newsletters and Upcoming Events</span>
    <p style=”text-align: right; margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;”><span style=”color: #f00;”>* </span><span style=”color: #333333″>enter your email address, then…</span></p>
    <label style=”color: #333333;”>Email Address:</label>
    <span style=”color: #f00″>* </span> <br/>
    <input name=”email_address” size=”15″ style=”margin-top: 5px; margin-bottom: 5px; border: 1px solid #999; padding: 3px;”/>
    <br/>
    <input name=”submit” type=”submit” style=”margin-top: 5px; border: 1px solid #999; padding: 3px;” value=”Done”/>
    <br/>
    <br/>
    <span style=”color: #333333″>Powered by VerticalResponse</span> </div>
    </form>

    It’s a form plus inline sytle. Both are normally stripped from user input due to security concerns. Workarounds are to either provide a link to the subscription site if they have a landing page or use teh Feedburner method that’s suggested.

    Hope this helps,

    Todd –

    Raj here from VerticalResponse. If you’re unable to include forms in your template, you can just link to the from the opt-in form directly (in your case: http://oi.vresp.com?fid=280cf1a0f2). As a suggestion, you may want to add a ‘company logo’ to your opt-in form, so that it retains more of the look and feel of your wordpress site.

    Feel free to follow up with me about this: rajesh @ verticalresponse . com
