  • Hey hey,

    Yep! I’ve updated to WP 3.5.1 on my local setup and it’s working fine! Let us know if you run into any issues on your end. 🙂


    Seemed to go ok but I decided to not use it in the end and just embeded the mailchimp code into the text widget so that I could custom style it.
    Is that an ok thing to do?

    in fact I’ve noticed that it’s affected the page footer, just on the pages where I inserted the form into the text widget …. any ideas?

    Hey there,

    It’s possible that you’re using a version of the embed code that includes CSS code along with it. For example, the Super Slim and Classic Form options will have a line of code that brings in a .CSS file, which is a stylesheet containing design code. It’s likely that something in this file is then altering the content that’s elsewhere on your page.

    In moving forward, you may consider removing this line of code with the CSS file, or, you can host the CSS code on your own site and make alterations to it as it’s necessary. That means identifying the conflicting CSS and then making adjustments to ensure it doesn’t affect your footer elements.

    You may also consider re-enabling the plugin form to see whether the same conflicts arise. Because the embed code and plugin form don’t use the exact same CSS code, you may see that the plugin form works a bit more smoothly than the embed code.

    If you have anymore questions, just let us know!


    Although I’m not sure how to proceed. I’m reluctant to try the plugin again now that I’ve styled the form (and the plugin seemed to have restricted formatting options).
    I can see the css (below)but not what might be affecting the footer. The footer background colour basically doesn’t fill the full width of the page (but it does on the pages without the form). There’s also this link – perhaps it’s in there?

    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <style type="text/css">
    	#mc_embed_signup{background:#e0e2e0; clear:left; font:12px Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;}
    	/* Add your own MailChimp form style overrides in your site stylesheet or in this style block.
    	   We recommend moving this block and the preceding CSS link to the HEAD of your HTML file. */
    #mc_embed_signup h2 {
        font-size: 1.2em;
        font-weight: bold;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
    #mc_embed_signup input {
        border: 1px solid #CFD7CF;
    #mc_embed_signup .mc-field-group input {
        display: block;
        padding: 4px 0;
        text-indent: 2%;
        width: 90%;
    #mc_embed_signup div.mce_inline_error {
        background-color: #337333;
        color: #FFFFFF;
        font-weight: bold;
        margin: 0 0 1em;
        padding: 5px 10px;
        z-index: 1;

    Hey there,

    Do you have a link that you could provide us to your website with the active form and footer? While we don’t generally support the embed code here, or help with custom coding, I’d be happy to take a look to see if I can make any suggestions.


    Thanks – yes – you can view the whole site here:

    Hey hey,

    Thanks for posting the link. In taking a look, it looks like the site is actually using our embed code, rather than the plugin’s form. For that reason, we’re very limited in what we can support here in this forum, so your best bet would be to reach out to a developer to troubleshoot the issue further.

    As a general observation, I’m seeing that your footer is outside of your main content wrapper on the problematic page, and it’s inside of your wrapper on the non-problematic pages. It looks like because the footer is being added outside of the wrapper element, this is what’s causing the footer to not adhere to the same width of your body wrapper.

    Make sure you didn’t bring in any extra closing </div> tags along with your embed code. It’s definitely possible that a stray closing </div> tag is causing your wrapper to close, and thus causing the footer to be added outside of the rest of your content.

    Best of luck!


    You’re a genius!
    Here’s the culprit.
    <!--End mc_embed_signup--></div>

    Thanks so much for your help tk.

    Awesome, my pleasure! If you have anymore questions, let us know.


    Thanks tk
    I have got another question – I posted it elsewhere on this forum and the one answer I got was to ‘follow the guide’ or post a job on wordpress.
    Wondering if you’ve got any advice?
    Here’s what I posted:

    I have just finished building my first wordpress site and need to change the url from to

    I have seen one wordpress guide that looks horrendously complicated
    [ ] – and also warnings that simply changing the url and all links (which I was thinking might be the easiest way to do it!) can cause issues with data serialization.

    I feel really stuck as to what to do – can anyone help 🙁

    I’m afraid that we’re only able to provide support on the MailChimp WordPress plugin here, so we would not be able to help with your question about changing your site’s URL.

    For that, your best bet would be to try a Google search and look through the resources that are available on the topic there. Best of luck!
