  • I’d like to know this as well

    Doesn’t work for me. Given all the unanswered support requests and lack of updates, I’m guessing it is no longer maintained.

    Hi all,

    I am the developer of MailChimp for WordPress and have just released an add-on for it which might be useful to you.

    It’s called MailChimp Sync and essentially does the same as AutoChimp, albeit using MailChimp’s newer API among other much-needed improvements.

    In case you’ll try it – let me know if you run into anything. 🙂

    Hi Danny,

    What AutoChimp also does is create campaigns from blog posts. That’s the most useful part for me. Does MailChimp for WordPress do that as well?

    Thanks!

    Hello, Danny!

    I have users register directly through my website versus having them use an embedded form for MailChimp. The reason I do that is so my users will have a username and password to login to my site so they can view exclusive content just for those members who have signed up.

    Ideally, I would love to have a plugin that will pull down my mailing list from MailChimp and populate my WP user list. However, I have yet to find a plugin that will do that. So, in the meantime, I’ve had to do as I described above so I can still have the best of both worlds – mailing list functionality through MailChimp AND a current userlist on my site for exclusivity for members.

    The question I have is does your plugin sync my WP User list with my MailChimp mailing list? I have found a few plugins that do what your plugin says it does, which is allow the embedding of MailChimp forms on my website for direct registration into my MailChimp mailing list…but that’s not what I really need, as you see with what I described above.

    AutoChimp hasn’t been working since 11/24/2014, so I have a slew of registered users who are not getting my updates. Your plugin would save me a lot of work.

    Thank you!

    After looking at a bunch of other options I decided that Autochimp is still the right tool for my use case, and I’m sad that it’s fallen out of development.

    It actually is still working for my needs (sync a small list of users to mailchimp and notify them when new posts go up) but could definitely use some love. I extended it to limit signups to specific user roles (something I needed) and I’m going to spend some time with it and see if I can duplicate / resolve some of the issues other folks are having.

    I’m working on setting up php unit tests for autochimp, if anyone is interested it’s up on github (not that there’s much to see yet): https://github.com/offbeat-empire/autochimp
