Subscribe via email box

Hi Movin, I’ve searched the forum but can’t find an answer to this, apologies though if you’ve already given a solution elsewhere. I’d like to change the colour of the ‘Subscribe via Email’ box in the blog sidebar. At the moment it’s purple with purple text, I’d like to change the box and text colour to #ff6600 if possible. Could you help please ?

Thanks again for all of your help



Hi Mark,

Cristian here

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

Could you please share me the pages URLs from your site where it is displaying so that i can help you to change their colors?

Kind Regards,


Hi Cristian - thanks for helping out. The URL is: . I think the subscription box is a widget in the sidebar. I only have the sidebar on the main blog page and on blog posts.

Thanks again for your help


Hi Mark,

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Shapely Options -> Other

.widget.jetpack_subscription_widget form {
    background: #ff6600;
.widget.jetpack_subscription_widget form #subscribe-submit input[type="submit"] {
    color: #ff6600;

Best Regards,

Hi Movin, as usual, 1st class support!! That worked perfectly - thanks so much for that!!

All the best
