    i have the mailchimp signup widget on the sidebar of my site. we have two "interest groups" set up on the list. but this particular signup embed should default to the main group. is there a way to make this interest group automatically checked?

    Hey Tray,

    Thanks for writing in to the forum! I'm afraid that the plugin does not offer the ability to pre-check a particular group field. However, you should be able to accomplish the interaction by utilizing our MailChimp embed code instead (available in your MailChimp account) and making some tweaks to your code.

    This article walks through how to find that embed code for your list's sign up form:

    Make sure to select the Classic Form, with disabled Javascript. To disable javascript, click on "options" beside the Classic Form option and check the "disable Javascript" option there.

    Once you've gotten your embed code, you'll want to add a bit of code to pre-check the specific checkbox that you want checked. This page on w3schools shows how to make a checkbox pre-checked with HTML:

    If you have any questions, let us know!
