Subscription Widget

In this section you can change main settings for the subscription widget.

The following fields are available:

  • Enable - enable or disable subscription widget. If enabled, a subscription form will be displayed in a widget. You must add MailChimp Subscription widget to one of your sidebars for the subscription form to appear.
  • Replace groups on MailChimp - if selected, interest groups provided above will replace any other interest groups for existing users. Otherwise, provided groups will be merged with existing interest groups on subscriber profile.
  • Double opt-in - enable or disable standard MailChimp double opt-in functionality. If enabled, customers will be sent an email and required to confirm subscription.
  • Send welcome email - if enabled, customers will receive welcome email as configured in MailChimp settings.

 

List & Groups

This section allows you to set list that users will be subscribed to and groups that they will be added to.

The following fields are available:

  • Mailing list - select a MailChimp list to subscribe users to. You must choose a valid list to enable this feature. Values for this field are fetched from MailChimp when the admin page loads, so allow a few seconds for them to appear.
  • Groups - select one or multiple MailChimp groups to add subscribers to. Mailing list must be chosen for a list of groups to appear.

 

Fields

Fields let you configure what fields will be available on the signup form. All fields are linked to MailChimp's merge tags. Tags are loaded when a list containing merge tags is selected.

 

Widget Style

Use this section to change the layout and style of the signup form.

The following fields are available:

  • Show field labels inline - if enabled, field labels will be shown as placeholders for fields. Otherwise, they will be displayed separately before fields.
  • Signup form style - select a style to apply to your signup form. If you choose to inherit the style from your current theme, styling will completely depend on it - in some cases you may get undesired results.
  • Custom CSS - using this field, you can further customize the appearance of the subscription form by adding custom CSS to this field. Subscription form is displayed within a table which has a style class woochimp_wg defined. You must use this class as a parent for changes to take effect.
