Ugly and hard to customize
By ,

Ugly formatting to the widget form, settings all but useless; no place to tell it to use the CSS of the site to format buttons etc. Places itself onto cart and other pages when told to, but uses mickey mouse styling straight from the mid 1990s with crappy default checkboxes and hideous grey buttons.

Too buggy
By , for WP 4.4

- Links are broken ex: http://mywebsite.local/"http://mailchimp.com"
- Doesn't find any list in mailchimp (I have created one)
- Buggy on key detection, I had to recreate an API key to make it work.

To bad, seemed to be a nice plugin but I'll use another one instead.

Serious bug won't authorise API
By , for WP 4.3

Tried unsuccessfully for an hour to register my Mail Chimp API for this plugin, even uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin. Once you click the initial "input your Mail Chimp API" link on the plugin homepage it takes you to the page with an automatic "Sorry, that is an invalid MailChimp API key. Please check the error log on the debug options tab for further information." error which you can't overcome - even by resetting the plugin.

Pretty useless. It could be I'm being thick or an issue with WP 4.3 I'm not sure but there's no help unless I pay for a premium account - nice.

Risky plugin at best
By ,

Installed, no work, so troubleshoot still no work, check FAQ and directed to debug steps. If the developer is not willing to put the time in to fix the simple installation problems what's gonna happen when a real problem occurs?

Not gonna risk relying on a poorly maintained plugin.

It's gotta work!

Never actually got this one to work?
By , for WP 4.0

Each site I've tried this, the form just refreshes the page with no notifications or error messages - and no opt in confirmations come through.

No customization options...
By , for WP 3.7.1

Plugin has no customization options as far as the layout or color of the forms, it's only pulls forms from MailChimp and lets you move the fields up/down. Don't waste your time on this plugin, NOT useful.

Not translatable
By , for WP 3.6

the plugin is not translatable. Every text string including field labels is hard-coded into PHP. Installing, testing even building a widget wasted a lot of my time.
