Have missing some line in your post!!! Check and update your posts

Hi Anas, I have tested this widget in several site. It is working fine. Can you tell me what kinds of problems you are facing?

Where do I paste this code?

Ohh thanks bro.. I have skipped one steps in tutorial. Please check the tutorial now. I have added Step 3 and Step 4. thank again. You have to add the code before closing b:skin

Hi, Followed all the steps but have two issues
1. The final output had a blue background in the section to type in 'email address..' making it difficult to read the prompt to insert email, cant find where to change color for that section
2. only half of the 'submit' text is displayed

Hi Macaulay. This is happening for your existing template code. Because your template already have CSS code for input and Text Box. like below--

.enews {

float: left;

}
input { color: #333; width:175px; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; box-sizing: border-box; }
input[type=text], select, textarea { background: #F45A5A;
border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

-moz-border-radius: 3px;

cursor: pointer;

padding: 12px 15px;

text-transform: uppercase;
display: inline-block;
background: #0db9e7;
font-size: 12px;
letter-spacing: 3px;
font-weight: bold;
height: 110px; }
textarea { color: #333; font-size: 12px; text-transform: none; }






/***** Button CSS *****/
input[type="button"],
input[type="submit"], .showpageNum a, .showpage a, .showpagePoint, .button { border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
-moz-border-radius: 3px;
cursor: pointer;
padding: 12px 15px;
text-transform: uppercase;
display: inline-block;
background: #EF2673;
font-size: 12px;
letter-spacing: 3px;
font-weight: bold;
height: 109px;
color: #fff;}
input:hover[type="button"],
input:hover[type="submit"], .showpageNum a:hover, .showpage a:hover, .showpagePoint, .button:hover { background: #000; color: #fff; text-decoration: none; }


In this case you should use your default script. and to use my widget you can add the below line only. Then it will match with your current blogger template code.

/* Widget by www.bloggerspice.com */
.FollowByEmail .follow-by-email-inner{padding:16px 8px;background:#000000 url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vmhZWva5sok/VO6eKkpwWoI/AAAAAAAAJpQ/M6-AxOr9ACY/s1600/BloggerSpice%2BRSSIco.png) left bottom no-repeat;}
.FollowByEmail .follow-by-email-inner .follow-by-email-submit:hover{opacity:0.8;filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=80);}
