  • Re: MailChimp Module Support and Troubleshooting

    Not sure if this has been mentioned or not but the mailchimp item is no longer being automatically created in the store. This leads me to the question - has this module been updated and still compatible with the latest version of MM9?

      Hi Leslie -

      I just installed it in a new version 9 store and the mailchimp item was created. Did you assign the module to the store under Order Fulfillment Settings? That is when the item gets created.

      We've used the module a lots of V9 stores and everything works as expected.

        Would you believe I actually follow the instructions on this page:

        http://www.miva.com/mailchimp/module-docs

        It doesn't appear to have the step you mentioned, so no, I did not assign the module under the Order Fulfillment Settings. I suspect if I go back and do that now, it's going to create a duplicate item?

          I just checked. The module already assigned itself to the Order Fulfillment Settings.

            I noticed that multiple MailChimp subscribe forms do not work on the same page. Is there a workaround for this? I don't want to screw up the mailchimp-js file by messing with things so thought I'd check here. Occasionally on some pages we have a subscribe form in the footer and also another one highlighted in the page body, such as on the contact page etc.

            Thanks.

              The issue is going to be that the JavaScript is looking for elements by id, and you can't have multiple ids on the page.

              It is definitely possible to setup, but you would need modify the JS to look for the correct ids for each instance.

                Ok, I figured that might be the case. Thanks for the help!

                • Is there any way that we can pass a hidden value into our Mailchimp master list? Ideally I'd like to pass in a hidden value of "Miva" to our master list so I know where our subscribers are coming from. I realize that I could instead create another list called "Miva opt ins" or something like that, but it's really best practice to have one list and then segment off of that list.

                  Thanks for your help.

                  • Hi Chelsea, I saw your forum post about this. I have a custom module that provides a more advanced hookup to MailChimp. It lets you divide a single mailing list into multiple interest groups, and it lets your customers subscribe & unsubscribe for specific interest groups. If you'd like to try this module in your store, please reply to me by email to Kent "at" TheMagicM "dot" com. Sorry, my forum account has been having problems lately.

                    • chelsea42 Not currently. We may make future updates to the module to support something like this but right now you can't pass any additional values.

                      • This module signs up customers to my MailChimp list without requiring the customer to click an additional link in a confirmation email.

                        Is there a way to configure this module to require the customer to verify their email address upon signup? Thank you!

                        • Just curious if any code was ever created to allow the MailChimp checkbox to be checked by default on the customer info screen?

                          Thanks.

                          • Howdy jpatrickm I may be misunderstanding what you are looking to accomplish but would adding checked to your input field in Mailchimp > Advanced Settings not create the result you desire?

                            • Thanks for the follow up on this. The issue is that the subscribe happens as soon as the checkbox is checked via a Javascript function, so adding checked to the input doesn't do anything on form submit. At least this was the way it originally worked. There was some earlier discussion to update the js script to allow this but I don't know if anything was ever done.

                              Thanks.
