Mail Chimp is one of the net’s most popular email newsletter services. This is a little plugin that adds several ways for you to add email list signup forms to your WordPress website.

When a visitor fills out the form, they are immediately added to your email subscription list.

The plugin is very simple, yet very effective. Signup forms can be displayed using any of three different methods:

  • Short code
  • Dedicated widget
  • Template tag (for advanced users)


  • Complete setup in less than 5 minutes
  • Very simple to setup
  • Can display any number of signup forms, even for different lists
  • Fully localized and ready for translation into your language
  • Well documented


All support for this plugin is now provided through my dedicated support forum. Please go there to ask support related questions.

    Hi, I’m helping out with a site and it has this plugin installed. Where can i find the documentation?


    • Pippin

      It is included inside the plugin folder.

  2. Gregory Daniel

    I seriously cannot find the documentation in the zip I downloaded from Codecanyon. Just Licensing and the files for the plugin… Any clues where I might find the docs?

    I”m trying to embed my Mailchimp sign up form at the bottom of each post without having to copy and paste the code every time I write an article.

    Is it possible to automate that process with this plugin? Is that what Template tag is?

    • Pippin

      Yep, that’s exactly what the template tag is for.

    • Chris Langille

      Okay great. Last question, as far as styling the form, will the form take on the styling of my theme’s CSS or will it look like how I configured it in Mailchimp?

      Thanks so much!

    • Pippin

      Assuming your theme has properly setup form styles, yes, it will take on the styles of the theme.

    Can I use Mandrill API key instead of MailChimp?


    • Pippin

      No, sorry.

    Hi there, we’ve added the mailchimp plugin, and although all seems OK from the front end, the email address does not get added to the mailchimp list. Any clues as to how go about diagnosing the problem?

    • Pippin

      Did you enter your API key in settings?

    • Paul

      We had, what was happening was, the name and email was mandatory in mailchimp, but we only requested the email address on the website, so mailchimp was rejecting it, although we didn’t see any error messages. So all sorted now thanks.

      Hi Pippin

      I have got 2 user categories/sections ie. Jobseekers & Employers

      In restrict content pro – how do I restrict logged in Jobseekers to view only Jobseekers section (excluding Employers section) and vice versa?

      Thanks for your previous prompt reply

      A big fan of your work

    • Pippin

      That’s not supported at this time, sorry, but I am planning to add support for that.

    Hi Pippin,

    Will this work with something like easy modal?


    • Pippin

      It should work just fine.

    Hi Pippin,

    Purchased this on code canyon and get the following message:

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the plugin…

    The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.

    Plugin install failed.

    Return to Plugins page

    Tried re-downloading, as you previously suggested, but still getting the same issue.


    • Pippin

      that sometimes happens when Code Canyon sends a corrupted zip file. Send me an email from my Support page and I can send you a new .zip file.
