Genesis eNews Extended
[resolved] Install problem for mail chimp (15 posts)

    I keep getting a 404 page when I try to enter in a test email and name.

    I followed your tutorial for Mailchimp- but I seem to be missing something.

    For the email field, do I paste in the <input type> ? I think this is where I'm having a problem, but I'm not sure.

    Thank you so much!
    The website I'm working on is http://www.bakeperfectcookies.com It is a Genesis / Studio Press ran website.

    Hi Melissa,

    No, you're almost there. For both the form action setting and the e-mail field setting, do not include the quotation marks.

    They should be:
    form action: http://melissaauclair.us1.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=091f1dddf0ece33549ab6a7a8&id=8a175d0bea
    email: EMAIL

    Do not include the <input type...> in the e-mail field, simply EMAIL .

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Brandon, I did exactly what you suggested for Melissa and when I tested it...

    Adding my email takes me to a Mail Chimp Page: http://harmonicpod.us5.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=35c525763fe8bf29f7ca5c32f

    and then, to: http://mailchimp.com/about/mcsv/

    I just updated to Genesis 2.0. yesterday and I had the Genesis eNews Extended widget installed at that time. When Genesis 2.0 loaded, the Genesis eNews Extended Plug-In was listed in the active Plug-Ins.

    The Widget displays fine in the sidebar: http://www.harmonicpod.com

    What should I try next?

    Hi,

    Can you confirm the form action URL? The error is coming from MailChimp and is indicating either that the form action URL isn't the right one for your account or there is some other issue going on with MailChimp's end.

    Cheers!

    <form action="http://harmonicpod.us5.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=35c525763fe8bf29f7ca5c32f&id=d332bd57a1" method="post" id="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" name="mc-embedded-subscribe-form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate>

    and I copied: http://harmonicpod.us5.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=35c525763fe8bf29f7ca5c32f

    Howdy,

    That would be it—needed to copy the full URL for the Form Action field.

    In the form action field, please include the full URL from MailChimp, which is http://harmonicpod.us5.list-manage1.com/subscribe/post?u=35c525763fe8bf29f7ca5c32f&id=d332bd57a1

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    The Form Action field on the plugin settings need to be changed to the URL that you included above and it should work.

    Cheers!

    now it totally opens in a new window, asking them to fill out everything again? is it supposed to do that? why should ppl have to enter their email twice?

    i entered my email into the one above, http://www.harmonicpod.com, and mine doesn't do that - how can i change it?

    Looks like the e-mail field setting is incorrect. It isn't Email but EMAIL.

    I’m a little confused.

    1. I grabbed the URL: http://gentryministries.us2.list-manage.com/subscribe/post?u=ebfdc8ac6aedec925402a9b66&id=fdde90673b

    2. I entered: EMAIL (all caps) into the email field

    Here’s my result: I’m taken to another page to enter my email address as if it’s the first time, instead of my "Thank You/You’ll Be sent an Email to Confirm, etc.” page.

    What am I missing Brandon?
