I downloaded and activated the ‘MailChimp for WordPress’ plugin in WordPress Training Johanneburg. It is easy to install, it is fast and it works. I had previously installed a MailChimp form and widget directly from MailChimp but I also wanted to give Users the option to quickly subscribe to the Newsletter from a comment form.
The ‘MailChimp for WordPress’ plugin helps you add more subscribers to your MailChimp lists using various methods. You can create good looking opt-in forms or integrate with any other form on your site, such as comment, contact or checkout form.
