  2. Unfortunately it doesn’t work – when I enter my API and Name and click on “save”, the button just changes to “Saving …” and gets stuck there.

    Nothing happens even after a couple of minutes. Is that a mailchimp issue, or something wrong on your part?

    Thanks for taking care of that!

    1. Hey Christian,

      I apologize for the trouble. There was a bug in the v1.1.0 release that gave some issues trouble like you are describing. We’ve already released an update (v1.1.1) which resolves the issue. Once you update it should work as expected. Thanks!

      1. I haven’t yet received any update for WPforms – when can we expect this to arrive on WordPress 4.7.3?

      2. Hi Mike,

        This update was made available when this post was published, and should be visible under Dashboard » Updates. If the update does not appear for you, could you contact us in support? From there we can work with you can to see what’s going on, and manually update the plugin if needed.

  3. Not sure why, but when I try to add a new API key into the new Mail Chimp integration it just spins and spins and spins. Doesn’t ever save. Any help??

  4. Hi, I have a brand new install for wpforms and for the mailchimp addon v. 1.1.1, but when I hit the “connect to mail chimp” button, it stalls and does nothing.

    Please help!

    1. Hi Jorge,

      It sounds like there might be an issue going on that’s specific to your site, and we’ll need to collect additional details to help you troubleshoot. If you could please contact us in support, we’ll help you sort this out 🙂


  5. When I try to save my form after connecting it to the new “Mail Chimp” API account I get this message…

    “Your form contains required MailChimp settings that have not been configured. Please double-check and configure these settings to complete the connection setup.”

    What settings do I need to check?

    1. Hey Kelly,

      That means in your MailChimp configuration inside WPForms, there is a field that is set as “required” in MailChimp that you have not mapped in your form. If a field is not mapped, then the lead won’t be able to submit to MailChimp since it’s required.

      Check out – in this example the sometext field is set to required in MailChimp (see the red asterisk). Make sure all fields that have that asterisk have a field mapped to it.

      Hope that helps! 🙂
