Allows automatic addition of people to your MailChimp list after they've sent you a message using a CF7 form.
You can also add a checkbox to your CF7 form with the “name” parameter set to “mc-subscribe” with a label saying something like “Subscribe Me To Your List”.
This will then give your visitors the option of whether they want to subscribe to your list or newsletter or whatever, after submitting the CF7 form.
If this checkbox is present and it is enabled and provided the “Enable Mailchimp List Insertion” is also enabled, the plugin will allow the subscription to occur, otherwise it will not.
If by default you do not have the “mc-subscribe” checkbox in your form and the “Enable Mailchimp List Insertion” is also enabled, then subscription will occur by default.
Normally people are subscribed to the global AWeber, GetResponse or MailChimp list names which are specified in the main settings of this plugin.
However if for example you have more than 1 list in your AWeber or GetResponse or MailChimp accounts and you wish to add people the different lists, you can do so with this plugin based on the form you are using.
For example if you have 3 different CF7 forms on your site, you can use each form to add people to 3 separate lists whereby each CF7 form can be configured to specify an autoresponder list name.
To do this you simply need to modify the submit button code of the relevant CF7 form by adding an extra parameter.
For example a typical submit button code for a CF7 form looks like the following:
Now if you wanted to use that particular CF7 form to add someone to a different list from the one specified in the global settings of this addon, you simply need to modify the submit code as follows for the CF7 form you are interested in:
Note that we've simply added a "pipe" character "|" followed by the list name which in our example is called "wpsolutionslist1" to the name of the button.
The plugin will read the submitted values for the "Your Name" and "Your Email" fields which come from the default CF7 form. Note that these fields have the "name" parameter set to:
If you wanted to use a slightly more customized form whereby instead of using just a single name field you wanted to use "first name" and "last name" in addition to the email field, then this plugin will also read these fields as long as you use the following "name" settings for these fields:
As stated earlier, this plugin will also look for a checkbox element in the CF7 form with the name "mc-subscribe". If this checkbox is present and it is enabled and provided the "Enable Mailchimp List Insertion" is also enabled, the plugin will allow the subscription to occur, otherwise it will not.
If by default you do not have the "mc-subscribe" checkbox in your form and the "Enable Mailchimp List Insertion" is also enabled, then subscription will occur by default.
The plugin settings also allow for the ability to disable the double opt-in email. Please beware that MailChimp can suspend your account if you overly abuse such a feature.
