    I have tried to find the answer to this in the forums but could not see it...

    I want to add a Mailchimp Plugin/Widget to my WordPress.org site that automatically adds the person to a specific group within my list.

    ie they do not see the group options as a drop down or radio buttons on the form.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    I just took a look at one of the other ones for Mailchimp.

    This one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nmedia-mailchimp-widget/screenshots/, looks like it has a drop down to select the list.

    I just checked my install of MailChimp on a blog I have, and I discovered that the selection is NOT in the widget itself. It's in the control panel, after you've enabled MailChimp. Go under your Settings panel and look for your Mail Chimp admin. You should be able to select there.

    Hello again,

    I just installed and this one does not give the option to set which group within a list the subscriber should be added to either...

    Have you seen any others that will do this without showing drop down menu or radio buttons on the front end?

    Hey Jon!

    The MailChimp WordPress plugin doesn't currently offer the ability to automatically add a subscriber to a specific group. However, through our embedded form (which does work as a WordPress widget!), you can do exactly that. We've actually got a blog article up on the step-by-step process, here:


    The blog post talks about how to do it with a field in your list, but using groups, you could do the exact same thing. Essentially, you'll want to add a hidden group to your embedded form, and then prepopulate it with your group ID.

    Let us know if we can help with anything else!
