    Hello everyone,
    I’ve been hunting for this all over the place, and I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. (SO if I’m repeating something, please forgive me.)

    I have the Minimal theme on my site. I want to have a newsletter signup form appear horizontally on my site exactly where that big ‘subscribe now!’ banner is. I want to keep the ‘subscribe now’ button, but have a ‘first name’ and ‘e-mail’ input area horizontally displayed next to the subscribe button. I hope this makes sense.

    Any help?
    (And sorry about my site – it’s totally under construction.)

    This tutorial should help: http://www.carriedils.com/add-widget-area-below-nav/

    Basically, it’s easier to add a new widget area and use the eNews and Updates plugin than to try to alter the existing Tagline Right widget area.

    Thanks Andrea! I will check that out. I wonder if you know where I could find code to get the form (First name, E-mail + submit ) button to appear aligned on the same line horizontally – not stacked on top of each other. Like this example: http://chrislocurto.com/ (Not sure if he is using minimum theme…) What do you think?

    Once it’s live on the site, I can help you with styling. Basically you just need the input widths to be something like 40% and they’ll both fit on one line.
