  • Oops..Here is the website we have it installed on:


    I have similar problem.
    I set up newsletter list at MailChimp and configured newsletter plugin with correct API key and List ID along with form. The checkbox “Prevent double opt-in” is unchecked. When I test it I can put whatever email (that is not listed at MailChimp – the list there is empty) and submit it with correct form behavior (feedback alert about succesful submitting) but any email is added to the MailChimp list and any feedback email about subscription arrives. What I did wrong? Please help me.
    My site is at


    I have since removed this plugin from our page’s “face” since it was not working, but if anyone has a solution to the problem, I would consider using the plugin again. Thanks!

    I have the exact same issue. I have tested this to death and nothing works. I have no choice but to delete and try something else. Anyone have a suggestion?

    I was having this same issue until I signed out of WordPress. Then when I subscribed as a “stranger” to my blog, MailChimp’s confirmation email came through immediately. Fluke? I don’t know, but I got confirmation emails from both the widget sign-up form and the comment checkbox once I was signed-out of WordPress.

    Glad to know I’m not the only one that was having problems! I just gave up entirely and un-installed it 😛

    having the same issue .. so no resolution

    Same here,
    For me it works only when not using the API.

    Why is this post resolved? It does not work for me. I use API on advice of the author, but nothing happens, no emailadress in Mailchimp and no subscriptionmail to the email.

    Please Help.

    Kind regards,

    Hey all,

    When testing the plugin please make sure to use an email address that is NOT already on your list. MailChimp will just silently ignore sign-up requests coming from e-mail addresses which are already on your list.

    Also, consider switching to my newer plugin aimed specifically at MailChimp users. It can be found in the WordPress repository here: MailChimp for WP.
