Embed Mailchimp Signup Form in WordPress
So here is how you can easily add a Mailchimp signup form to your WordPress website.
As usual, I’m going straight to the point. Follow the steps I have outlined below. Make sure to act according to the prompts that come up at each stage. Click when you need to. Edit when you have to, and so on and so forth.
Now, here we go again.
What You Need to Embed Mailchimp Signup Form
- A self-hosted WordPress website. My area of expertise is gradually becoming WordPress. I know almost nothing about Wix and the other alternatives to WordPress.
- Mailchimp Account. FREE is good. At least for starters.
- A code embed plugin. Install and activate it on your site. Complete the necessary settings. What I use is the INSERT HEADERS AND FOOTERS PLUGIN.
I don’t touch my Theme Editor. In fact, don’t even go near it. I have no knowledge about code and I want to keep my site safe from any wahala.
Next. Follow the order here. Keep moving from one to the next.
- Go to your Mailchimp Account
- Manage Audience
- Signup Forms
- Embedded Forms
- Choose Form Type. *Please note. CLASSIC is normal. CONDENSED is best for your Sidebar. HORIZONTAL is best for your Footer. I honestly think UNSTYLED is ugly. But it’s your preferences we are talking about here. So please yourself. You can click on each option and view how it looks like.
- Copy and Paste Code. Unless you know what you’re doing toying with code and your theme editor, I strongly advise that you paste your code inside the plugin field I mentioned earlier.
That’s all. Now you know how to embed a Mailchimp signup form in WordPress. You can refresh your website’s frontend to see the result.
