    iggest issue was documentation. It was not as easy as it sounds and it was only a websearch that found how to integrate with contact form 7 which it turns out was on the developers site.

    I will admit to also being new to mailchimp which compounded the issue…

    Definitely a freemium program; paying $49 to be able to be able to choose lists seemed steep. The emails sent to the user lost some elegance. I had to surround the mailchimp name and email fields with <> to get them to submit. See contact form on StPaulandStAndrew.org/contact-us/ if you want test (but please say test no reply needed it you do it!) as i’d love a more elegant solution.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review here.

    Documentation is definitely on the list of the many things to improve on. As for your freemium remark, you can actually “choose lists” in the free version of the plugin. The free version comes with no limitations, the Pro version just makes certain things easier by helping you generate the correct HTML and so forth.

    As for your CF7 setup, I’d love to help you out on that one. Documentation may be poor but we definitely aim for a good support experience, even for non-paying customers.

    Can you copy-paste your current CF7 mark-up so I can take a look at that?

    Thanks in advance!
