Support » Fixing WordPress » MailChimp widget not showing up

  • I’ve had an issue with both themes I’ve tried so I’m not sure this is theme-specific.

    Basically I am trying to get a MailChimp subscribe widget onto a bare-bones site ( and it either doesn’t show up at all (as in the case of the Hueman theme) or it only shows up for me when I’m logged into WordPress in Chrome…it doesn’t show up in Firefox (where I’m not logged on) or for my husband (on a different computer).

    This is the code (it’s the default code for an Embedded Form which I just copied and pasted from

    <!-- Begin MailChimp Signup Form -->
    <link href="//" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

  • Hi, @lycarland. I’m seeing the MailChimp form on your site right now; so does that mean you were able to get this one resolved?

    Hi @girlieworks I tried a third theme (Dingy) and the MailChimp code did show up. I am not sure why it didn’t show up on Hueman or Twenty Fourteen. Since we are likely going to be changing our theme yet again, it would be nice to know why sometimes it may show up and sometimes not.
