Great plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

would be nice to be able to create templates linked to content via shortcodes to posts or categories etc..

Works as expected

It looked a bit complicated at the beginning but then after a few clicks I managed to add my sign-up form widget

Responsive developer, sensitive to premium features issue
By , for WP 4.1

This review got revised upward after some interaction with the developer (seen below) triggered by a feature withholding MailChimp's already-free ability to send a welcome email. The developer responded to the criticism by disabling the block, and providing its option, as part of its Lite plug-in, so that the integrity of the paid features is preserved for added coding efforts. Appreciated the flexibility and hope it helps others too.

Useful and looks great!

I needed to put a sign up bar on the front page for a client and this plugin worked beautifully. Anyone with a little CSS coding experience can make it look however they want and it works like a gem! I wouldn't say the formatting I was looking for was plug and play - it did take some fiddling - but you COULD use a standard, out of the box format for your sidebar or page and it's still beautiful.

Thank you so much - I'll be using this plugin again in the future.

Good and simple html signup form editor inside WordPress.

Good and simple html signup form editor inside WordPress. But too small list of components which you can add to the form.
Easy to install and easy to integrate to your mailchimp profile.

Superb Plugin

Really it was great i had made more than 200+ Subscribers with MailChimp on my blog [link removed]

It would be great if you can add some more customization features in it.

looks good

Hi, I'm new to mail chimp integration with wordpress site. Sorry if I'm being an idiot. But I'm a bit confused, prior to discovering mail chimp, I had the jetpack subscription to 'sign up to my blog'. Now a friend is using a regular wordpress blog (set up by me) and her email for her latest posts look horrid, just plain obvious wordpress content and not using her domain link at all.....just blue and white and boring.

Now I wanted to get my sign up email to look my cousin's email alert, which has mail chimp written at the bottom and the blog/post is in the email with no mention of wordpress itself (although it's a wordpress.org site, like mine).

So my question is, if I put this widget in my sidebar, will the 'sign up' form actually deliver my posts beautifully, because in my mail chimp account, I don't have any template or designs set up just a list of subscribers. Does it actually 'get' the link between the subscribers and the content. SORRY if I'm being daft, but I'm not quite clear on this.

used once, worked great for me!

Great for one-off mailchimp forms
By , for WP 3.7

I needed a very quick mailchimp form on my client's site, and this plugin filled the bill.

What I Like and What I Don't
By , for WP 3.6
  1. That the html is provided for you right in the interface which you can modify to your heart's content right from admin. No mucking about thru the php.
  2. I also really liked that you can add the checkbox for submission to registrants and commenters so it's an all-in-one solution from one interface.
  3. The settings are easy to find and use.

Things I would improve:

  1. Make it so that when the form is submitted, the fields disappear. It looks rather like something went wrong or just isn't elegant when the form fields are still sitting there after the form's been completed.
  2. Figure out a way to validate the email address by sending it and checking the header to make sure the email was delivered before confirming the submission.
