[resolved] Validation issue with MailChimp (5 posts)

    My MailChimp form requires first and last names. If someone doesn't enter these in the plugin, it still sends the values "First Name..." and "Last Name..." to MailChimp, which of course accepts them. Is there any way to resolve this? Thanks.

    Hey Greg,

    Thanks for reporting this; this is a new bug. Let me see if I can work something out on it.

    Without testing, I'm going to look at adding a check that if the default values are still present, to clear them out on submit, so that MailChimp's validation would then kick in.

    Got it working. In a short bit, you'll see version 1.1.2 available for download in your Dashboard. This adds code to clear out any default text from the name fields on submit, so they'll return to MailChimp as blank and trigger validation there.

    Does that work for you?

    Cheers!

    That works great! Thank you for the fast response. The update hasn't shown up in the Dashboard yet but I'll keep an eye out for it.

    Just showed up and works exactly as expected. Thanks again.
