How to use the newsletter form provided with the theme

MailChimp is the most popular newsletter system in the world and its free.

We have a custom widget called MailChimp that give you the ability to opt-in your visitors into your MailChimp account. You will then be able to manage and send newsletter to your mailing list using MailChimp.

1) To use our widget, you will need a free MailChimp account and create an empty list.

2) Enter your MailChimp API Key in WP-Admin > Theme Options > MailChimp. To find your MailChimp API Key: 

  • Login to Mailchimp
  • Click your profile name to expand the Account Panel and choose Account Settings.
  • Click the Extras menu and choose API keys.
  • Copy an existing API key or click the Create a Key button

3) Once your API Key is saved into WP-Admin > Theme Options > MailChimp, go edit your MailChimp Widget in your page (or footer) and make sure to select which List you want the user to be subscribed to for that widget. see screenshot: https://d.pr/i/fdvkXg

The lists in the dropdown in the screenshot are pulled directly from your MailChimp account so if you don't see your list there, make sure MailChimp is correctly setup.
