Support » Plugin: MailChimp List Subscribe Form » Works, sortof, but full of bugs

  • While it can connect to your mailchimp form and does display it, the formatting is awful. It looks terrible, has no configuration options to repair the formatting either.

    It also ignores the format of the fields you select in Mailchimp. For example, the birthday field if selected in mailchimp as dd/mm displays as mm/dd in this plugin. The address field acts like an american address field and does not allow postcodes longer than 5 characters.

    In addition, it won’t work in a modal.

    So as others have said, it sort of works but is pretty much useless.

    If you uncheck the “apply customizations” option, you can add stuff to your CSS file to style the form and its contents. The div IDs and classes are listed on the form setup page.

    Hi Guys,

    While I love MC’s email service I decided to come up and put in my two cents about this plug in. I also spent hours on and off trying to figure out how to customize it and it looks absolutely horrible on the side bar.

    @steven, Yes I unchecked the apply customizations but I am not sure why on earth last name and those other fields stay. All I am looking for is a simple way to say. “Join my mailing list, then a input field for them to enter the email addy and submit” Voila!

    That isn’t difficult. Frustrating is an understatement. So much that I abandoned that option and started using a scroller which I am not to fond of as of right now but I had to do something.

    Developers should really get it together and give us something simple that works and looks good. Usuability is important but come on. As a former developer usability does nothing if the user has no clue on how to work the app.

    I truly hope it gets fixed!
