    Is it possible to link the information from FS to a Mailchimp account?

    The form has 2 ways to forward the posted data

    http://www.fastsecurecontactform.com/send-form-data-elsewhere

    Does it work with mailchimp? I do not know.
    If anybody can do it and give me instructions how, or make a youtube video, I will gladly put it on a FAQ page.

    I did it, but it still sends the opt-in confirmation email. Here's how:

    By using the Silent Send feature, you can send the from-email captured on the screen to mailchimp. Using this feature will cause an email to be generated to the subscriber asking for an opt-in. Mailchimp will allow you to customize the opt-in email that is sent. Here's what I did that worked:

    Silent Remote Sending: Enabled Method: POST
    Silent Remote URL:http://your-mailchimp-userid.us2.list-manage.com/subscribe/post?u=site-specific-string-of-characters=site-specific-numbers

    Silent send fields to ignore:ex_field1
    ex_field2
    ex_field3
    ex_field4

    Silent send fields to rename: from_email=EMAIL

    The key is to go into mailchimp under the list you have set up for your website subscribers, choose 'Forms'. Then, under 'For Your Website', select the 'Signup Form Embed Code'. There is a form for copy/paste into your site. I had to copy and paste the url just before the words method="Post" into the url address for Silent URL, above, to get it to work. The other url addresses given by mailchimp didn't work for me.

    Nice work but it would be great to give the user an option i.e. a checkbox to be added to the newsletter list.

    Agreed. I'm fine with a double opt-in, or giving them an option for a single opt-in. Abuse it too much and MailChimp will smack you off their service - not worth the risk.

    Anyway, for now I have a solution involving Gravity Forms. But it's not free...
