    I would like to use JotForm on my blog as the "Subscribe Via Email" form that connects to my feedburner site.  I currently have my contact information set up with a JotForm and I would like the Email Subscription form to match it.  Is there any way to change the feedburner code so that it shows my customized JotForm instead of the basic (ugly) one that it defaults to and still have the email submitted to Feedburner?

    Hi,

    While making your Feedburner form appear like that of your customized JotForm is possible, I am afraid that it would be too daunting a task to accomplish due to a couple of reasons.

    One of the reasons is that the input fields in your customized form have different attributes than that of the Feedburner codes. Failure to accurately transpose the attributes will render your form useless. Also, doing so requires an intermediate knowledge of html to properly implement.

    The easiest workaround I can suggest to you is to copy your feedburner codes and paste it in a web editor, such as Dreamweaver, then customize its appearnce to your heart's content. That way, the field attributes and the form's method, action, etc. remains intact.
