    Hi Metzli,

    This is kinda a stab in the dark (haven't tested the two plugins together yet), but is the MailChimp Archives plugin using a different version of the API wrapper from my plugin?

    Cheers,

    J.

    Hi karin,

    What I mean is that MailChimp provides a PHP wrapper class for their API. I'm using 1.3 and MailChimp Archives is using 1.2. You could try:

    1. Copying /wp-content/plugins/mailchimp-widget/lib/mcapi.class.php into /wp-content/plugins/mail-chimp-archives/MCAPI.class.php, which may fix the issue (or may just succeed in breaking the MailChimp Archives plugin. Or...
    2. Contacting the author of that plugin and asking them to update the wrapper to a newer version.

    Option 2 is probably better because it'd be more successful and would benefit the whole community.

    Cheers,

    J.

    Hi Karin,

    Any word as to whether this is working yet? If not, I might try reaching out the the MailChimp Archives author and see if they'd like help patching their plugin.

    Cheers,

    Similarly (but not), I just installed the MailChimp Widget plugin and the installation seemed successful. I entered my API key. But when I placed the widget, and opened the widget sreen, "select a mailing list" list was empty. And when I tried to use the widget on the front-end of the site, it provided the error message "there was a problem processing..."

    I do not have the Archive plugin. Often, when I install widgets, if there is a problem, it's often a permissions problem with javascript files; but that doesn't seem to be the case this time.

    Hi spendberg,

    This seems to be a new issue. Could you start a new thread for it, please? Also, if you contact me off list, I'd be happy to help you take a look and troubleshoot it in more detail, then report back here with what we find.

    Thanks so much for trying out the plugin!

    Cheers,

    J.

    I have this same issue, can it be something host related?
    because If I install mailchimp on the local version of my website it works but in the online version of teh sme site the select your mailing dropdown box is empty, maybe something gets blocked?

    Hi 2grafik,

    Is the curl extension for php installed on your host? The MailChimp API wrapper I use in the plugin depends on it.

    Cheers,

    I think that was one problem but they enabled it, the other one was that fsockopen is closed on this host and they don't want to open it. You don't happen to know a work around for that problem?
