How do I add a Name: input field to the subscribe box
Can this be done simply by adding a new <input> field to the subscribe.phtml file then removing the class="validate-email"? Or is there some backend work that would need to be done to get the first name field to populate through to the DB? Lastly, does this all vary when a user fills out the form as a guest as apposed to subscribing when logged in?
