The plugin has stuff that would be easy to solve but...
By , for WP 4.1

- Is difficult to style if you want to adjust with the theme styles.
- Add CSS in the middel of HTML which is a direct no validate in W3C Validator.
- Add too much extra JS which kills google pagespeed test.

PHP 5.6 required
By ,

This plugin uses hash_equals() ((PHP 5 >= 5.6.0). If your server not work with PHP 5.6, you can not connect to mailchimp.

not very good
By , for WP 4.0.1

Needs updating.
* Should be faster by minifying the CSS and JS.
* Default styling should be nicer
* Input type for email should be "email" and not "text"
* Email input should have required tag

Not able to add it anywhere you want
By , for WP 3.9.2

I wanted to add the form in several pages of my website, cannot do it it seems. It can only be integrated in a widget.. so i'll now try this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-for-wp/installation/

The free version is nothing but a gimmick.

you'll have to pay for everything and the free version is only .. usable but not at all good looking.

Works as advertised
By , for WP 4.0

The design for the admin interface resembles the Mailchimp own interface, which may be inadequate in some circumstances.
In the front-end, on the other hand, it is quite vanilla which is a big plus in my opinion. Other plugins i've tried I had to overwrite a lot of style definitions.

One thing prevents me from giving 5 stars. The authentication method doesn't allow to authenticate while in local development.

Doesn't sync registered users
By , for WP 4.0

I was under the clearly mistaken impression that this plug-in would keep WordPress registered users and Chimp lists in sync. It does not. It creates a Chimp form in a widget. There has to be a better way to handle dual registration.

Broken, will re-review once updated

Epic Fail
By , for WP 4.0

Installed the plugin fine. Then it asks you to connect it to your Mailchimp account. I clicked "connect" and it failed. My password was write and everything. No success connecting it. Here is what I got back in my browser. The only part I deleted below was where I typed in "-DELETED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES-"
