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/

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.

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.

By , for WP 3.8

It seems to mostly work, but just activating it blew out the CSS on my theme. 3rd party plugins are better than the official mailchimp one.

Meh... needs improvement
By , for WP 3.5.2

Sure, it works but it is lacking basic customizability features you would expect from such a plugin. I would like to see shortcode functionality to add forms for different lists on different pages. A spot for custom CSS would be great, and it seems like a no-brainer that you should be able to modify the title of the widget... I tried this plugin for five minutes, but quickly uninstalled it. I'm still looking for the right solution for integrating MailChimp.

Too basic and no control
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have the simplest of forms. Just an email. The text that appears next to this field on the left is 'Email Address'. That's fine (but I would much prefer an in-field label so it leaves more room). But the real problem is that it says 'Enter email address' on the right hand side of the text box. That wraps around on to a second line because it is too wide for the 300px sidebar I am using. And I have no control over it whatsoever. Can't turn it off. Can't even make the text colour white to hide it (why would I want to tell my poor subscribers twice to enter an email address?). The problem with this plugin is that you have almost no control over any of the formatting. The 'submit' button cannot even be coordinated into your site colours. If these things were fixed it would be grand.

Looks Horrible
By , for WP 3.5

I haven't tested it to see if it works, but it really does look ugly - boxes that don't line up, and asking the user to select HTML/Mobile/Test as a radio button. Come on, let's have something that makes people want to sign up!
