Regretfully it isn’t an option, however, it is possible to make the Name attribute appear first.
You can fill it in, you’ll get a email confirming it’s gone through, but there’s no confirmation link, and no record is kept of the subscription, it’s there purely as a test page.
How to do so, create a fresh subscribe page in phpList, view the page in a browser, then View source and copy the necessary code from that into a HTML editor of your choice,
If you want to view source for the test page, just copy it all into your HTML Editor as is.
Three sections of code are needed for this to work, I think it was explained on the old site under custom subscribe pages but I’ll try to remember how it’s done.

Paste these into your blank page in your HTML Editor.
Now copy the <FORM to
Then move the Name section from the end of the form, and place it above the first Email Address section.
This MUST include the
| and finish with the |
The FORM action url should match YOUR phplist installation and I’ve always found it best to use the full URL rather than starting at lists/
