Support » Plugin: MailChimp for WordPress » Great plugin… couple of queries

  • Resolved rjt1985


    Hi there,

    First of all, great plugin… really simple to set up.

    However, I have a couple of queries which I’m going to put all in this one post.

    The page in question is this: (form is placed in the footer).

    1. Is it possible to get the form to validate and post the success message without leaving the page, so it all happens inline? Currently, when you click Subscribe it’s going off to another page.

    2. When it goes off to the other page, the widget areas in the footer are losing their headers. Any idea why this would be?

    3. Is it normal for it to take a while for the submissions to show up in Mailchimp? Mailchimp says there is 1 subscriber on the lists overview page (it’s a new list), but when I click into the list it says there aren’t any subscribers yet.

    Any help with the above would be great.

    Many thanks,

    1. I’m currently working on AJAX implementation, which comes down to this.
    2. Strange, when I get to work tomorrow I will do some testing. Actually the form is supposed to reload the current page. Can you leave the example online until tomorrow?
    3. Yep, this is normal. On bigger lists you won’t even notice but this is probably due to MailChimps cache.

    Hope that helps, tomorrow I will have more time.


    Hi Danny,

    Thanks for the response.

    1. Do you have a rough timeframe on this? Need to go live with my site in 2 weeks and want to have it up and running by then.

    2. I have left it online for you to view. It does re-load the current page, however it also removes the titles from the widget areas in my footer.

    3. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Many thanks again,

    Hi R,

    1. Sorry but for now I decided to keep AJAX submission a Pro Only feature. I spent so much time on this plugin that I will try selling it as a premium plugin for a fair price. The functionality is already available in the current version of MailChimp for WordPress Pro.

    2. I looked into it and this seems to be a theme issue. It’s because the form automatically scrolls down after submitting. You can test it by referencing other footer elements in the URL and visiting those pages.

    This is the piece of CSS that’s causing it, line 2735 of your theme’s style.css.

    .columns {

    Hope that helps, good luck.


    Thanks for the help.

    Just to clarify, so things will validate without leaving the page in the PRO version? (i.e. when a user tries to submit a bad entry error messages will be displayed without reloading the page?)

    Hi R,

    Yes, check it out on my own website for example (in the footer).

    Great. Just purchased! 🙂
