[resolved] Can't get MailChimp signup form to show up! (3 posts)

    I activated the MailChimp plugin and also updated the MailChimp Setup through the dashboard.

    I'm using the Atalualpa theme.

    I tried dragging the widget into all the sidebars in the Widgets page in the dashboard - nothing happened.

    I tried copying:
    <?php mailchimpSF_display_widget(); ?>
    into the HTML in my Home Page
    -nothing happened.

    And I'm not even sure where to put this:
    mailchimpSF_display_widget();
    (in the editor?)

    How can I get the form to show up in my homepage???

    Here is my website

    I want to put the signup form at the top right of the homepage.

    I put the widget in Right Sidebar and Right Inner Sidebar without any issues. The Left ones didn't work, but I'm pretty sure that's b/c they are disabled by default. That theme also appears to have a ton of settings, so you may need to change something there.

    If that's not helpful, revisit and re-read everything in the Advanced section of the installation instructions since it sounds like you missed a few things mentioned there.

    Thanks mc_jesse.

    I was able to put it in the inner left sidebar but my right and inner right sidebars are off the page and looks terrible.

    I've read the Advanced section of the installation instructions a dozen times...

    It seems if I want to put the widget in my center column I need to activate new widget areas in my theme for the center. ?? Not sure though. Still playing with everything.

    I don't want to have any sidebars but i might have to if I want the widget.
