    Hi there,

    Yes, you can definitely do this if you’re using my other plugin; MailChimp for WordPress. We would need to know the box ID for this though, you can find it in the URL when editing a box (post).

    Once you know it, add the following piece of code to your theme its functions.php file.

    function myprefix_set_mc_cookie( $email, $merge_vars, 0, $result ) {
    	$box_id = YOUR_BOX_ID_HERE;
    
    	if( $result == true ) {
    		setcookie( "stb_box_{$box_id}", true, strtotime( "+1 year" ), '/' );
    	}
    }
    
    add_action( 'mc4wp_after_subscribe', 'myprefix_set_mc_cookie', 10, 4 );

    You will need to change the snippet so YOUR_BOX_ID_HERE becomes the numeral ID of the box you would like to hide once a user sign-ups through a MailChimp for WordPress sign-up form.

    Hope that makes sense, good luck. 🙂

    danny,

    i actually looked through the support and found this code:

    function my_prefix_set_mailchimp_cookie($email, $merge_vars, $form_id, $result) {
    if($result == true) {
    setcookie(“mc4wp_subscribed”, $email, time() + 31556926, ‘/’);
    }
    }

    add_action(‘mc4wp_after_subscribe’, ‘my_prefix_set_mailchimp_cookie’, 10, 4);

    function my_prefix_show_stb_box($matched, $box_id) {

    if(isset($_COOKIE[‘mc4wp_subscribed’])) {
    return false;
    }

    return $matched;
    }

    add_action(‘stb_show_box’, ‘my_prefix_show_stb_box’, 10, 2);

    add_action(‘mc4wp_after_subscribe’, ‘my_prefix_set_mailchimp_cookie’, 10, 4);

    how does this differ from yours? And would it work? i don’t see any box_id field on the one i found.

    Hi there,

    Ah, yes. That’s another way to do it without needing the box ID.

    Here is the cleaned-up version of that code.

    function my_prefix_set_mailchimp_cookie( $email, $merge_vars, $form_id, $result ) {
    	if($result == true) {
    		setcookie("mc4wp_subscribed", $email, time() + 31556926, '/');
    	}
    }
    
    add_action('mc4wp_after_subscribe', 'my_prefix_set_mailchimp_cookie', 10, 4);
    
    function my_prefix_show_stb_box( $matched, $box_id ) {
    
    	if( isset( $_COOKIE['mc4wp_subscribed'] ) ) {
    		return false;
    	}
    
    	return $matched;
    }
    
    add_action('stb_show_box', 'my_prefix_show_stb_box', 10, 2);

    Hope that helps!
