[resolved] Subsribe2 and hidden fields (3 posts)

    I want to use your great plugin with Subscribe2. I have read all your tutorials, but every time you mention Hidden Fields it gets blurry witch part I have to input. In Subscribe2 there is a hidden field that looks like this:

    <input type="hidden" name="ip" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']; ?>">

    What part of that am I supposed to put into the form field Hidden? I tried "ip" - both with and without quotes. That isn't working.

    Do you have any suggestions or even any experience making it work with Subscribe2?

    Thanks for your time. :-)

    Generally, you want to copy/paste that entire line into the setting (e.g. <input type="hidden" name="ip" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']; ?>">

    However, the line of PHP isn't compatible. Allowing PHP to be entered like that would allow a big security risk, so WordPress will not allow the widget to save that setting.

    I'm not familiar with Subscribe2 and do not know if there is a workaround.

    Ah. Ok. Well I think I'll just change to mailchimp then. Thanks. :-)
