    Hi,
    I installed the plugin, i added the API Key and i added the sidebar widget -> OK.
    But when i click in the form, i am redirected to my feedburner feeds. It's strange.
    You can test in http://www.appzup.fr/blog/ (french blog).
    Thanks.
    Eric

    Hey Eric,

    Thanks for writing in to the forum! In taking a look at your site, I was seeing the same interaction where clicking anywhere on the sign up form was taking me to a feedburner page.

    In taking a look at your website's source code, it looks like there's an incorrectly closed tag that's causing that to happen. Here's a screenshot of the code, with an arrow pointing to that incorrectly closed tag:

    Changing that </a< should do the trick! Let us know if you have any questions.

    I installed the Mailchimp form onto my site, and it says it is installed correctly, but I can't find it anywhere on my site. I created a separate signup page for the form, and ideally the form would go there.

    I have no idea why it doesn't appear anywhere on the site:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Jim,

    After installing the plugin, you'll want to make sure that you've taken a few more additional steps to ensure that your form is going to be visible on your site.

    FIrst, make sure that the plugin is connected. To do that, log in to your WordPress Admin area and go to Plugins > Installed Plugins > MailChimp > Settings. Walk through the prompted steps to connect your account and choose which list you want to direct the sign ups to.

    Next, you'll want to set where the form will display. If you want it to appear as a widget, go to Appearance > Widgets from your WordPress Admin area. Then click and drag our plugin's widget into your widgets area there.

    Alternatively, you can use any of the shortcodes that are provided here:

    If you have any questions, let us know!

    I went through the steps to get it connected.

    I don't want it showing as a widget, I'd like it in the center of the page (I've created a separate WP page for the signup form).

    If you can show me how to embed the form in the page so it appears in the center, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hey Jim,

    In the last link, titled "Installation", you should see the shortcodes that are available to insert the form on your standalone page. For example, if you insert the following:

    [mailchimpsf_form]

    That code will then be replaced by the plugin's sign up form. You can then apply your own CSS to the elements of that generated form and make additional design choices, like centering the content.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions!
