MailChimp List Subscribe Form
Tracking Signup Location with the Plugin (2 posts)

    Hi,

    So I'm a little disappointed that at present we cannot use hidden fields (see this post for reference: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-mailchimp-list-subscribe-form-need-a-hidden-field-can-i-use-the-plug-in) in the MC plugin.

    How do you recommend we track signup location without the hidden field? I want to use this plugin on a mobile site but want a definitive method to know exactly where and how many signups came from the mobile site.

    Thanks.

    Hey there, Efrem.

    In this case, the best option is going to be to use the MailChimp embedded form:

    How can I add my signup form to my website?: http://eepurl.com/gOGN

    That will allow you to use the hidden field and pass that information directly to a merge field in your list.

    With our newest update to MailChimp, we do add some degree of tracking with regard how subscribers were added to the list. So, if someone signed up using the WordPress plugin, we actually note their profile with that information. For example:
