How to alter the URL of the form?

  • What I mean is that I have added to my form some checkboxes with a short list of interests.
    I have gone through the tutorial on how to alter the URL of the form so that you can have a checkbox with a pre-set value, but I don’t know how to make it appear on my site.

    Now that I think about it I need to do it on my Facebook page as well… but probably you won’t be able to help me with that.

    Thanks:)

    Hey there, Arka!

    Currently, the plugin doesn’t allow for custom coding your own pre-defined groups, you might find our embedded form a better fit for that specific need:

    However, we do get this feedback quite often, and I’m happy to pass this along to the developers, as well. 🙂

    Regarding Facebook, you’ve got a couple options! With a release we pushed out a few months ago, MailChimp can now track where some of your subscribers signed up at, including Facebook!

    However, if you’re wanting to add them to a specific group, automatically, your best bet is going to be to check out an integration called “ShortStack”:

    They’ll let you embed a custom form on your Facebook page, so you can add people signing up there to a specific group.

    Cheers

    Hi there,

    thanks for that.

    I have one more question:

    I had a look at what you say, but I cannot find any info on where my subscribers actually subscribed. Am I supposed to activate this feature from somewhere?

    Thanks again:)

    Hey again, Arka!

    That information should be segment-able in your list as well as displayed on the individual subscriber profiles.

    However, if you had a subscriber who signed up through Facebook, you’d see a specific Facebook option, there.

    The same information should also be displayed in their individual profile. In this example, I was already a subscriber on this list before we made those changes, so my “source” was “pre-existing”. However, if a subscriber signed up through Facebook, you’d also see that, there.

    That’s great…
    I have found what you are saying and I have three options: FB form, WP form and hosted form (not sure I know this last one is).
    Anyway, the total of teh subscribers I find through this route is about 1/3 of the total. What happened to the rest?

    Cheers:)

    Oh, now that I think about it I think the hosted form is the one I posted somewhere else…

    @mc_nate

    Sorry about my lag in reply time!

    But you got it! The hosted form is the one that MailChimp hosts. The url to that from should start with http://eepurl.com/...

    Let me know if you need any other assistance!

    Cheers
