Hi there!

Let me start by saying I really love WP Subscribers - I've figured out how to do everything myself (well, up until this point anyway!).

I cannot seem to change the size of any of my custom opt-in forms.

I change the pixel size and save it (rather than leaving it the default "flow to size automatically" setting) and nothing changes to the form appearance whatsoever.

They are HUGE!

Have a squiz here at the bottom of a blog post to see what I mean... I would like the form to be the same width but half the size in height.
Blog post custom opt-in form (http://www.businessfromtheheart.com/conscious-business-principles/business-marketing-from-the-heart-sacred-economics/)(scroll down to see what I mean)

I've put custom opt-in forms in widgets in sidebars with no problems at all but at the moment I'm trying to put a custom form in a widget area in my header and it's HUGE not matter how small I make the width and height in the settings.

Please help!

Thank you!

Thank you for your feedback.

To resolve your problem you have 2 solutions.
The first one : go to your Custom form settings. Click on "more settings" and change "Form Height: (Leave blank to auto set height)" value.

The second one : in "more settings" add this code in "Custom CSS":
#ia-optin-form .ia_title {
height: 120px;

Take care,

Hi Nico,

Thank you so much for getting back to me!

I have tried adding the custom CSS also - changing the form height and width makes no difference at all. The form will not go smaller.

There is still a lot of excess space that I cannot remove - see what I mean here... (http://www.businessfromtheheart.com)

Thank you!

it sounds the limitation is defined around the custom popup rather the popup itself, so the changes would need to be done in the theme

If you see the code of the optin, you have this line:

<p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong></span></p>

It's means you enter an empty line in your content, try to delete all empty line in your content and the space between "discover how to fall in love with your marketing!" and the form will be disapear.

Hope this help

Hi Everyone!

Thank you SO MUCH for your beautiful support!

Jean - you were totally right - I removed the extra line and now wp-subscribers is looking all pretty and small - just like I want it!

I'm doing a happy dance of celebration right now!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
