    hello,

    thanks for this plugin. it is working great in the widget area.

    is there a way i can use this plugin to generate the same mailchimp signup form automatically at the bottom of each post and on the about page?

    if not, what is the best way to do this?

    many thanks,

    david

    Hey there, David!

    The easiest way to do that sort of thing is to include the shortcode for the plugin. Here's the instructions from the "Installation" page:

    If you are using WordPress v2.8 or higher, you can use the short-code:

    [mailchimpsf_form]

    If you are adding it inside a php code block, pop this in:

    mailchimpSF_signup_form();

    Or, if you are dropping it in between a bunch of HTML, use this:

    <?php mailchimpSF_signup_form(); ?>

    Let us know if we can assist in any other way!

    Cheers

    thanks for the reply :)

    i am a total novice at web coding. when i insert the short-code [mailchimpsf_form] at the bottom of my post, i get a version of the form ,but with no kind of formatting :( the subscribe button is all over the place.

    is it possible to insert into my post a version of the form that looks just like the widget form? here's the site as it stands, see how the form appears on the top right:

    Hey again, David!

    When I look at my WordPress setup, the shortcode should inherit any styling applied to the normal widget area. So, if I use MailChimp's built in styling, I can change the background color in both:

    Any styling that's applied through CSS should also carry over despite the use of shortcodes, as well:

    Any way you could post a screenshot of what you're seeing, as I wasn't able to find the form within the footer of your posts, I'm afraid. :(

    Cheers
