Mailchimp Integration

Why Mailchimp?

Mailchimp is by far the largest provider for newsletters. Adding Mailchimp to your comment section is a no-brainer and is an easy way to get more subscribers through comments.

Mailchimp on the Front-end

With Mailchimp enabled in Comment Edit Lite, you'll see a checkbox just above the submit button.

Enabling Mailchimp

You'll find Mailchimp in the Integrations tab in Comment Edit Pro. If you're setting it up for the first time, you'll see an enable toggle switch.

Setting the Mailchimp API Key

Once Mailchimp is enabled, you can enter your Mailchimp API key.

Mailchimp API Key: Please view the Mailchimp documentation on retrieving your API key.

Selecting a List

Once you have entered your API key, you will need to save the options so that you can select a list.

Configuring Mailchimp Options

Once a list is selected, you can configure and save the options.

You can customize:

  • The sign-up label: this will show above the comment submit button.

  • The checked state: you can check or uncheck the sign-up option.

Checked by default: having the box checked may affect spam protection in some countries.

Mailchimp in the Comment Section

With Mailchimp set up, you will now see a checkbox above the submit button for subscribing to a list.

Future Plans for Mailchimp

If this feature proves popular and users request it, there is a plan to allow a Mailchimp list per post setting.
