  • I would love to know how to alter the form action field so that it feeds to this group… thanks

    Ditto this. I have several hidden groups I’ve created in mailchimp based on HOW a person subscribes (ie: from a content upgrade in a post vs. from the enews plugin in my sidebar) but I’m not sure how to get Enews Extended to put a user into one of these groups.

    I’m sure I need to stuff something in to the HIDDEN field in the widget, but I’m not sure what it needs to be.



    I use hidden Mailchimp interest groups to keep track of where people sign up on my website, so I know how well different opt-ins are converting. I want to automatically put people who subscribe through the eNews widget into a group, but I do not want a checkbox visible on my form.

    Can anyone shed some light on what code needs into the HIDDEN FIELDS on the eNews widget?

    Nevermind, I figured it out.

    This method worked like a charm:

    Thank you Erin for the link– that worked?


    Basically, go to Mailchimp and create the group you want if you haven’t already.

    Go to general forms, make that field UNhidden if it is hidden.

    Go to embedded forms and copy all the code from your form into a text document.

    Find the input tag for the group you want to add people to. Delete everything but that.

    Go back to Mailchimp and rehide the group in general forms.

    Copy that second bit of code from Stackoverflow into your text document. Swap out their values for “id”, “name” and “value” for your own.

    Paste your edited input tag into the HIDDEN INPUTS field in the eNews widget.

    Bingo bango done. I tested it and it works perfectly.

    What you paste in will look like this, with your values replacing the X’s:

    <input type="checkbox" id="xxxxx" name="xxxxx" value="x" checked="checked" style="display:none">

    Thank you sister!!!

    Glad I could help!
