Plugin 1.2.4 Bug: Loads Only ONE Interest Group! (6 posts)

    I set up a list with two interest groups, but the plugin loads only the first interest group. Now I either have to consolidate my two interest groups into one (which makes the choices less clear) or switch to using embedded code instead of this plugin (which doesn't display properly in my theme). I don't want to do either one of those things!

    Can you please fix this bug?

    Thank you,

    P.S. Clarification: MailChimp uses the word "groups" in two different ways, so I need to be more precise here!

    MailChimp lets you set up groups of interest groups. I had set up a list with two groups (fields) of interest groups (checkbox options) as follows:

    Monthly Mailings:

    - Newsletter

    Instant Updates:

    - Announcements
    - Training Events
    - Free Technical Tips
    - Contests & Discounts

    The plugin loaded only the Newsletter interest group from Monthly Mailings. It did not load other four interest groups from Instant Updates.

    As a workaround, I deleted the Monthly Mailings field completely along with the Newsletter option. Now the plugins loads the four options from the Instant Updates field just fine.

    Yo Fred!

    This is a bug that we're aware of and working on getting fixed with a new version. As of now, you've detailed the only two workaround that we have at this time, unfortunately. But, to let you know, this is on our radar and something that we're actively working on.

    If we can assist with anything else, let us know!

    mc_nate, thanks for your reply! I'm glad to know you're already aware of the problem and are working on a fix.

    This particular problem isn't terribly serious for me, but I have encountered two other problems which are deal-breakers. I'll have to stop using this plugin in the mean time. I'll start a new thread with the details.

    Thanks again,

    Hi mc_nate,

    just wondering if there's an ETA for the new version of this plugin? I need to use several interest groups for a client and the workarounds posted by fwchapman are not an option for me.

    I checked the plugin code, and it receives all the interest groups from the API that are in the mailchimp list. The code then just takes the first array (interest group) and ignores the rest. I could modify the code myself to support multiple interest groups, but I rather not spend an 1 or 2 hours coding something that'll be redundant come next update.

    It's currently in development, but we don't have a specific ETA on that, yet. Although, from the whispers around the darker corners of the office, we hear it should be coming sooner rather than later. We just can't nail it down to a specific date as of yet.
