The Easy Peasy MailChimp plugin allows you to easily add an ajax powered MailChimp newsletter subscribe form in any page of your WordPress site.
This plugin is great, it's the only free ajax-based solution I found, it is set up in a few minutes and works exactly as it should.
What I like is that you can easily copy /templates/mailchimp-form.php to your theme and adjust whole HTML of your form, which is a behaviour that I as a developer prefer - instead of tons of admin settings, loading stylesheets and tons of unnecessary bloat simple interface to set things up and then possible customization in the theme.
The only drawback I found is that when using custom template and I wrap the submit field in a div, the ajax messages don't show up. But otherwise brilliant.
Can't understand why other people can't get it to work.
It's easy to install, it's easy to config and it makes it job as described with smooth ajax-effects..
It's a well coded and lightweight plugin without any trash you don't need. It works nice if you just wanna fill your list, and it gives you an extra hook to make some cool stuff after someone subscribed.
Thumbs up !!
Install, add your chimp API and list code. Shortcode is on the right after you save settings. You have to choose double-opt in or welcome email.
The addon displays only: email address and input box, and a (dark blue) subscribe now button. I added it to a sidebar and added some text. easy peasy.
This Ajax form is superior as it accepts subscriptions and does not refresh the page or redirect to mailchimp. http://www.feritation.com/home/blog/
Nice plugin, setup very easy and works like a charm.
But it would be nice to have the option to put custom labels, placeholders and messages for the form.
Also, the message that is telling to the user "wait please" when the form is submitted, I think it have to be on the top, not replacing the submit button. If the form is in a sidebar, the message can't be whole seen.
Anyway, nice plugin! Thanks!
Wanted this to work so there was another developer in the MC Form plugin space...
Would not activate and generated this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/65/6815365/html/mydomain/wp-content/plugins/easy-peasy-mailchimp-ajax-form/includes/MailChimp.php on line 3
No other MC Form plugins were present.
Really nice and simple plugin, better than the official mailchimp plugin because it allows subscription without page reload! Also easy to style with css
