I've seen this question asked numerous times, but still don't see a complete explanation or working solution. I am attempting to embed the "email list" element onto my site, but the green button color clashes with the rest of the site.

Thank you in advance.

    Yes, we definitely could use the css code to add to wordpress that allows us to change the color of the buttons color, border and background. Or some type of option to edit the colors in the admin of cashmusic. The default green is not going to compliment websites with different color schemes.

    Attempting to post a reply with a solution but it doesn't appear to be saving when I include the code...

    If it posts this time, this was the solution that worked for me, adding the following code to the custom CSS section here on Cash Music:

    /* Buttons */
    #cash_emailcollection_form_13951 > input.button {
        border: solid 2px #cc5500;
        color: #cc5500;
        display: block;
        font-size: 14px;
        font-weight: 700;
        font-family: 'PT Sans', sans-serif;
    #cash_emailcollection_form_13951 > input.button:hover {
        background: #cc5500;
        color: #fff;
    @media only screen and (max-width: 515px) {
        #cash_emailcollection_form_13951 > div:nth-child(2) {
            width: 100%!important;

    Instead of light or dark theme, I clicked "Edit custom embed" and placed the code above in the pop up window, above the line of code that says < / head >

    Where it says "13951" - try replacing that number with the number attached to your account/element... that should work!

    It works flawlessly! Thank you so much! (by the way for anyone else, there is 3 instances where you replace the "13951" with your data-element number.
