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-"

POST to http://www.-DELETED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES- failed with 500: <!DOCTYPE html> <!-- Ticket #11289, IE bug fix: always pad the error page with enough characters such that it is greater than 512 bytes, even after gzip compression -DELETED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES- --> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-US"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> <title>WordPress › Error</title> <style type="text/css"> html { background: #f1f1f1; } body { background: #fff; color: #444; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; margin: 2em auto; padding: 1em 2em; max-width: 700px; -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.13); box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.13); } h1 { border-bottom: 1px solid #dadada; clear: both; color: #666; font: 24px "Open Sans", sans-serif; margin: 30px 0 0 0; padding: 0; padding-bottom: 7px; } #error-page { margin-top: 50px; } #error-page p { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5; margin: 25px 0 20px; } #error-page code { font-family: Consolas, Monaco, monospace; } ul li { margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 14px ; } a { color: #21759B; text-decoration: none; } a:hover { color: #D54E21; } .button { background: #f7f7f7; border: 1px solid #cccccc; color: #555; display: inline-block; text-decoration: none; font-size: 13px; line-height: 26px; height: 28px; margin: 0; padding: 0 10px 1px; cursor: pointer; -webkit-border-radius: 3px; -webkit-appearance: none; border-radius: 3px; white-space: nowrap; -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 1px 0 #fff, 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,.08); box-shadow: inset 0 1px 0 #fff, 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,.08); vertical-align: top; } .button.button-large { height: 29px; line-height: 28px; padding: 0 12px; } .button:hover, .button:focus { background: #fafafa; border-color: #999; color: #222; } .button:focus { -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.2); box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.2); } .button:active { background: #eee; border-color: #999; color: #333; -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 2px 5px -3px rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0.5 ); box-shadow: inset 0 2px 5px -3px rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0.5 ); } </style> </head> <body id="error-page"> <p>-DELETED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES-</p></body> </html>"

big mess
By ,

After seeing MC website I thought they were a serious company.

This plugin is big mess. Installation guides and readme.txt offer no help whatsoever to solve my problem and do not correspond to the actual plugin version.

Thanks a lot.

Extremely Simple & Effective but Rudimentary and Ugly
By , for WP 3.9.1

It integrates perfectly and simply. I was literally done setting it up in under 5 minutes.

However, it's ugly out of the box. They give you a CSS cheat sheet so you know how to style it. I haven't yet gotten around to that.

It would be great if they could add custom merge variables.

People - Join Me in Complaining to MailChimp!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Clearly there are problems with this plugin, I rarely see such negative reviews. Join me. Complain to MailChimp -- tell them to fix the plugin! If enough users squawk, they'll eventually get on it. There's no excuse for bad code.

Super easy and automated!

I am developing a multilingual website, so any update on translation side will be appreciated.

Probably initial versions of this plugin may have caused it to receive 1 star a lot, but now it works as a 5 star plugin :)

Not upto to the Mark
By ,

Working but not upto the mark , bad code, it has hard coded JS as an optimist i hope this will be overcome soon.
