BFA Subscribe widget--changing icons, deleting Comments icon
 
Where do I go to change the BFA Subscribe widget look and layout? I'd like to--
  • get rid of the Comments subscribe icon (the blue talk blob)
  • get rid of the Email subscribe icon (tilted envelope)
  • make the RSS icon smaller (I chose the smaller icon on my Feedburner account but it looks big)
  • have a button that looks like a button for the Email subscription (not the gray bar)

Any clues on this? Do I have to go into bfa_subscribe.php? If so, where in there and how can I do these things?

Thank you very much for your help. I'm at http://dougcoe.com/blog/

Having the same issues. Did you find a solution?

Not so far. I haven't worked on this for a while. My blog looks like this right now:

Good luck!

If you want to style the BFA_Subscribe widget, you will have to use CSS Inserts. If you look at teh generated code, you will see that the <div> for the widget has an ID of 'bfa_subscribe' so you can use this has a high level qualifier so changes will only effect this widget.

Same issue here. I simplified the code near the top of wp-content/themes/atahualpa351/functions/bfa_subscribe.php by trial and error. The following may not be approved, but it seems to work OK in Firefox. In IE, though, the icons appear at the left side of the footer instead of in the right sidebar. (Sorry - couldn't find in the FAQ instructions for posting code more neatly. Will repost if some says how it should be done.)

<form class="feedburner-email-form"
<table class="subscribe" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
<td class="email-text" colspan="2"><p>
<a href="http://<?php echo $window_url . $id; ?>&amp;loc=<?php echo get_locale() .
($bfa_ata_nofollow == "Yes" ? ' rel="nofollow"' : ''); ?>">
<img src="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/email-feed-small.gif" style="float:left; padding:0px 10px; margin: 0 0px 0px 0" alt="" /></a><?php echo $email_text; ?></p>
<a href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"<?php if ($bfa_ata_nofollow == "Yes") { ?> rel="nofollow"<?php } ?>>
<img src="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/rss.png" style="float:left; padding:0px 10px; margin: 0 0px 0px 0" alt="" /></a><?php echo $posts_text; ?></p>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>


Looks like this: http://metanoia.attadipa.org.

The smaller images were already in the same folder; just needed to change pointers (if that's the right word).

Thanks-

To do what dougc wants without getting into the code would be to add the following to ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts

For getting rid of the icons...
HTML Code:

div#bfa_subscribe .comment-text, div#bfa_subscribe .email-text {
display:none;
}

AND this for adding a button image. You would of course have to add the button image to the images folder. It of course doesn't have to be called button-image.jpg and the width could be different.
HTML Code:

.button {
background:url("http://dougcoe.com/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/button-image.jpg") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
width:40px;
}

To resize the RSS icon just replace the post-feed.gif in the Atahualpa images folder with a smaller image. I would just download, resize and upload the post-feed.gif after renaming the one that is there to post-feed-original.gif just in case I want to use it at that size.

lmilesw,
I have a similar question to dougc. I want to remove both buttons and text for Subscribe to comments and RSS, Leaving only the Email subscribe. It's been awhile since I built the site and I remember that I moved the Subscribe buttons and text out of the header area to the sidebar. Before adding this html as you describe I want to confirm I am putting the code in the correct place. My site is http://www.themeaningofpie.com/
Thanks very much

The CSS goes in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts

I added the code below to CSS Inserts but it didn't remove the elements from the top of the page. Any suggestions? I don't want subscribe icons/text at all.
Thank you!
Denise

That code is for removing certain icons from the widget. You remove the RSS and other icons from the top of the page in a couple of areas in the theme options. One is the RSS section and without looking I think the other is one of the header sections.
