What on earth could be causing this? I am contemplating saving out the subscribers list and config file, deleting, and recreating the list.
Anyone have any less drastic suggestions?
The listinfo.html template for this list has been messed up in editing.
When the subscribe stuff was moved to the bottom, the line which becomes
in the final page and which probably looks like
in the template needs to be moved down below the other forms on the page.
The real problem is that in the standard template, the subscribe form actually begins in the middle of the "About" section instead of within the "Subscribing" section. This leads to exactly the kind of error you made when trying to rearrange things on the page. ------------ end of quote
I suggest that the following patch might help people avoid the above error when editing the template.

Of course, if this is a good idea, it also applies (the idea, not the exact patch) to all the other languages as well.
