BFA Subscribe widget not working

Hello all,

I have WP 3.0.1 and Atahualpa 3.5.3. My subscribe via email widget wasn't working for some people, but I ended up copying the HTML from the feedburner site to create a nice envelope icon that apparently works. But I still have the email box and submit button below, which don't. How do I delete the box and the button?

My blog is: http://www.gonescamping.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Deonne

Thanks for the reply! I'm not sure I see where to do this - I don't see how in style widgets or style & configure sidebars, and if I go into the widget itself I'd have to delete the whole thing, but I want to keep the html for the email envelope/text and the subscribe to posts buttons/text (all three go together in this widget). What am I missing?

Thanks for the reply. I went to RSS settings but still don't see how to delete the boxes for email address and submit button. I only see options for the links/buttons, which are fine on my blog.

I also don't see how in the BFA submit section in widgets. (Which is the section in question - right sidebar.) I removed the text from the email box and submit box, but the boxes themselves remain.

I looked at the editor but didn't see any code (I'm a total neophyte, so no surprise) that looked like something I could delete and thereby eliminate the boxes. Any ideas?

I'm using atahualpa 3.4.9 and i have the same problem . I put the bfa subscribe widget in the right side bar.
then I go to ATO--»RSS settings --» and put Show Feedburner Email icon? No , Show Comment Feed icon?
No and Show Post Feed icon? Yes. However In the widget I have still all the buttons.

Deonne: sorry, I don't know where my head was. I thought you were talking about the feed icons in the header. 0 the widget is a different animal

Since you copied the HTML code and added some of your own in the sidebar, you just have to remove the HTML code that creates the input box and the button. Find this part of the HTML code you added
HTML Code:
<tr><td class="email-field"><input type="text" name="email" class="text inputblur" value="" 
onfocus="this.value='';" />
<input type="hidden" value="GoneScamping" name="uri"/>
<input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US"/>
</td><td class="email-button">
<input type="submit" class="button"  value="" />
</td></tr>
and remove it - that will get ride of the input box and button

Shirley (Deonne you could also do it this way)
you can just add the following to CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
td.email-field, td.email-button {display: none;}
and that will hide teh area.

Juggledad - Yay! I hadn't used that much of the first HTML code, but the second suggestion worked like a charm. Thank you!

?? if all you want is the RSS (the orange icon) why did you put in your own email icon?
But no matter - since you put in the HTML, you can pull out what ever part you don't want...or use CSS to hide it. your code looks like this (the lines of ='s are just for illustration purpose) lso, I formated the code for ease of viewing
HTML Code:
<div id="bfa_subscribe" class="widget widget_bfa_subscribe">
	<form class="feedburner-email-form" action="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=GoneScamping', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true">
		<table class="subscribe" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
===========================
			<tr>
				<td class="email-text" colspan="2"><p>
					<a href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=GoneScamping&amp;loc=en_US">
						<img src="http://www.gonescamping.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/feedburner-email.gif" style="float:left; margin: 0 7px 3px 0" alt="" /></a><a href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=GoneScamping&amp;loc=en_US">Subscribe to Gone Scamping by Email</a></p>
				</td>
			</tr>
===========================
			<tr>
				<td class="email-field">
					<input type="text" name="email" class="text inputblur" value="" onfocus="this.value='';" />
					<input type="hidden" value="GoneScamping" name="uri"/>
					<input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US"/>
				</td>
				<td class="email-button">
					<input type="submit" class="button"  value="" />
				</td>
			</tr>
============================
			<tr>
				<td  class="post-text" colspan="2"><p>
					<a href="http://www.gonescamping.com/feed/">
						<img src="http://www.gonescamping.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/post-feed.gif" style="float:left; margin: 0 7px 3px 0" alt="" /></a>Subscribe to posts in a reader</p>
				</td>
			</tr>
===========================
			<tr>
				<td class="comment-text" colspan="2"><p>
					<a href="http://www.gonescamping.com/comments/feed/">
						<img src="http://www.gonescamping.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/comment-feed.gif" style="float:left; margin: 0 7px 3px 0" alt="" /></a>Subscribe to comments in a reader</p>
				</td>
			</tr>
===========================
		</table>
</form>
</div>
you have a <div..> with a <form..> inside it that has a <table...> with four rows. These four rows are the rows you see on the page (well three since you hid one with CSS ...umm on a side note are you editing css.php?? you shouldn't, just go to ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts and add it there. this will then make it a theme option and you don't have to worry about updating the code during the next upgrade.)

You can remove the row (<tr>...</tr> for which ever rows you don't want, or you could use CSS to hide them. For example, to hide the last row, you create the CSS Selector from the column class 'comment-text' and add the rule 'display:none; to get
HTML Code:
td.comment-text {display: none;}
You know, if all you wanted was the first one, you could just have used a text widget and put the HTML for that in the widget and skipped using the BFA_Subscribe widget altogether.
