kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

This plugin makes it possible to insert a MailChimp newsletter etc. subscription form to any Textpattern’s article, form or page. Works with Ajax and the public side form is HTML5. Can be localized and customized. Despite the screenshot link shows Statistics and Styles tabs, those are empty in this version, as I haven’t yet coded them. I’ll work on them if people put enough dollars to the table. :-) So far tested with Textpattern 4.5.5. and some nightly build of 4.6.

Checkbox subscription:

  • Can be hooked with zem_contact_reborn
  • Same with uri_mail
  • Now also Textpattern´s comment form can have a signup checkbox

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

So this plugin just creates a nicely formatted mailchimp subscription form?

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

Yes, that’s what it does. :-) I added a little bonus feature: user can subscribe to MailChimp just by ticking a checkbox when sending zem_contact_reborn form. Please see the updated demo over here.

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

Hiya – does it allow you to sign up users to a particular segment? I’ve managed to do this manually, but it’s a pain to do. For example, visitors can sign up to the mailing list into the “blog” segment or “recipes” segment automatically depending on the page with the sign-up form rather than having to choose.

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

Thanks for showing interest towards this project. :-) The plugin has now tools to insert subscribers automatically to some predefined groupings/groups. It’s done like this:

<txp:kuo_mailchimp grouping="Subscribed from" groups="Article" />

The grouping and groups should have the names of your MailChimp groupings. Check this screenshot and you’ll see that I’ve created a Group called Subscribed from and set three options for them: Article, Blog and Category. So grouping gets its value from the name of Group and groups can be a comma separated list of those predefined options. For example something like this could be done:

<txp:kuo_mailchimp grouping="Weekly offers" groups="Special offer category,August 2014,Test" />

(Edit: this grouping thing works so far only with tag <txp:kuo_mailchimp /> and not with the checkboxes.)

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

This looks great kuopassa – let me check it out for a site I have which uses Mailchimp. If it can add a subscriber to a particular segment of a group that would be awesome!

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

I can offer the plugin for you to test if you can in return write feedback of it to this topic. What say you?

Maybe a real world test motivates people to make that 50 USD ransom happen. ;-)

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

Do you plan to propose this plugin in your commercial plugin list?

Re: kuo_mailchimp_lite: MailChimp for Textpattern

Soon I’ll release it as a free plugin. The ransom thing was a test and not very successful. :-)

Great, thanks !
If you want to make some money, in my mind it is probably better to ask 5$ to each user than 50$ to a hypothetical sponsor. Do your other plugins sell well?
