Connect MailChimp

First you’ll need to make sure MailChimp for WordPress plugin (MC4WP) is installed and active. If it’s not, access Appearance > Install plugins and install it there.

Next you will need to setup a new MailChimp account and create an API key to add in the plugin’s settings to connect with it. Get your API key here.

How to create a form

Access Form in MC4WP plugin, and you should be able to just edit the form. Throughout my demos, i use this HTML markup here:

<p><input type="email" name="EMAIL" placeholder="Your email address" required /></p>
<p><input type="submit" value="JOIN" /></p>

As you can see, it’s mostly the same, with different text strings.

How to add the form into a page

If you’re editing the page with Elementor, you should be able to find the Newsletter Form element in the left editor eg: https://d.pr/i/y8WgbM . After you dragged the element into the canvas, make sure to select the Form ID eg: https://d.pr/i/lPt6ds .

Do know you can always make use if it’s shortcode too eg: https://d.pr/i/oMZlhg .
