What You Need

  • A self-hosted WordPress website. My area of expertise is gradually becoming WordPress. I know almost nothing about Wix and the other alternatives to WordPress.
  • Mailchimp Account. FREE is good. At least for starters.
  • A code embed plugin. Install and activate it on your site. Complete the necessary settings. What I use is the INSERT HEADERS AND FOOTERS PLUGIN.

I don’t touch my Theme Editor. In fact, I don’t even go near it.

Similarly, I believe you too would want to keep your site far far away from any wahala.

Next. Follow the order here. Keep moving from one to the next.

  • Go to your Mailchimp Account
  • Audience
  • Manage Audience
  • Signup Forms
  • Embedded Forms
  • Choose Form Type. *Please note. CLASSIC is normal. CONDENSED is best for your Sidebar. HORIZONTAL is best for your Footer. I honestly think UNSTYLED is ugly. But it’s your preferences we are talking about here. So please yourself. You can click on each option and view what it looks like.
  • Copy and Paste Code. Unless you know what you’re doing toying with code and your theme editor, I strongly advise that you paste your code inside the plugin field I mentioned earlier.

That’s all. Now you know how to embed a Mailchimp signup form in WordPress. You can refresh your website’s frontend to see the result.
