Bad Practices
By , for WP 3.8.1

Blog frontend breaks upon activation. Not using anything special, just standard blog and out of the box theme. Many bad practices in this code. Would not recommend :(

Bad code
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin has very bad code, among others it has hard coded JS includes with urls like '/?mcsf_action=main_css&ver=3.8.1' that tend to break WP-Admin.

Useless
By , for WP 3.8.1

Sorry, but that design is a killer. Just can't use it with that look in my wordpress. The Subscribe-Button is nearly not readably.

Very disappointed by that, folks. Hope you come up with a better Version soon.

awful integration
By , for WP 3.8.1

useful plugin but it does a lot of VERY BAD THINGS :

- just by activating the plugin and despite not using any widget on the site, it includes a inline javascript that use jquery but not adding it as a dependency.

- just by activating the plugin and despite not using any widget on the site, it includes a link to a css file whose url is /?mcsf_action=main_css and not checking for cache plugin not handling query_string ( result on loading the homepage as a css ... )

it doesn't deserve 1 star, but rather 0 !

deactivating, removing file, and cursing mailchimp developper

Poor Implementation
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin leaves much to be desired. It's frustrating and buggy (particularly in the connection between WordPress and MailChimp). Styling the signup form is difficult and the instructions are misleading.

I love MailChimp and use it every day. I hope they revisit this plugin soon.

Update caused sign up form to disappear
By , for WP 3.6.1

The update caused my sign-up form to completely disappear. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the update twice now, clearing out my browser caches each time. WordPress.org dashboard tells me that it's installed, but doesn't give me any sort of form to fill out to connect with my Mailchimp account, so there's no info for WordPress to import, and therefore no form. I'm not a techie, so I have no idea what to do at this point, but I'm not happy that people are going to my website and I have no way to capture their email addresses.
