MailChimp Framework
Fix to run Mailchimp Framework on WP 3.0 (4 posts)

    I've installed this plugin on two instances of WordPress. Each time, the Settings page fatal errored and I wasn't able to update the API key, password, etc.

    The fix was to comment out Line 823:
    return $this->callServer( $args );
    and add
    return "Everything's Chimpy!"

    I was able to access the Settings page again. Once I updated my Mailchimp settings, I reverted the fix and I didn't get the fatal error anymore.

    If you do this, make sure to revert the fix too or you'll lose ping() functionality.

    I i tried this doing the edit in 'mailchimp-framework/mailchimp-framework.php'

    I Commented out the call server and added the Everything string. I am totally new to php, does spaces and extra line mean anything for the code?

    It returned a fatal error in resulting the plugin to deactivate.

    any idea what I did wrong?

    Try adding a semi-colon after "Everything's Chimpy!"

    A note: I've had to hack this plugin a lot more in the 3 months since I posted the above comment. I don't believe the author maintains it any more and you might not want to use it unless you can maintain it yourself if problems arise.

    Do you think you would like to take over the development of this plugin? The developer seems to have abandoned it.
