As a final step in the newsletter plugin transition covered more in #11878 and #11647, I'm working with the CPCP ( to put a signup box in the sidebar of their homepage linked to their new Tinyletter account. The code provided by Tinyletter is below. When I try to add it as a Custom HTML widget in Wordpress, I'm told that the <form> and <input> tags aren't allowed. Perhaps we can do a workaround or simple custom widget on this? I believe there's already some code out there from others, like here:

&lt;form style="border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;" action="" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="'', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=800,height=600');return true"&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;label for="tlemail"&gt;Enter your email address&lt;/label&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email" id="tlemail" /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;input type="hidden" value="1" name="embed"/&gt;&lt;input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="" target="_blank"&gt;powered by TinyLetter&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/form&gt;

The plugin you linked looks good to me, Colin. I've added it as part of the 1.16 release in and pulled to cdev. Could you give it a test on a cdev site, to ensure it works the way you'd expect?

Hi Boone, sorry about my delay on this. I tested on the dev site and all seems right - I was able to activate the plugin, add the signup form to a test site sidebar, and then subscribe via that sidebar widget in Tinyletter. I think we're good to proceed, and when it's released I'll close things up with the CPCP and their site sidebar. Thanks!
