Using the MailChimp Pop-up

    This documentation was modified on 01/18/2018, to comply with the latest changes by MailChimp.

    MailChimp offers a pop-up sign up form feature for collecting email addresses from visitors when they land on any page on your website. The visitor has the option of either entering their email address or closing the pop-up and not seeing it again. If they enter their email address, it is automatically inserted into your Mailchimp mailing list.

    CONFIGURE THE POP-UP THROUGH MAILCHIMP AND OBTAIN THE EMBED CODE

    1. Configure the pop-up from through MailChimp, instructions to do so can be found here: https://kb.mailchimp.com/lists/signup-forms/add-a-pop-up-signup-form-to-...
    2. Save a copy of the embed code in a .txt file

    PLACE THE CODE ON YOUR WEBSITE

    Navigate to: Structure > Blocks > Add Block

    1. Leave the block title empty
    2. Provide a ‘Block description’ - Example: MailChimp Pop-up Form Code
    3. Select the ‘Source’ button on the WYSIWYG Editor
    4. Paste the embed code into the body
    5. Place the block in the ‘Footer’ region of your theme (The block itself will not  be seen but allows the code to run behind the scenes and allow the pop-up to appear)
    6. Set the ‘Pages’ restriction to ‘All Pages except those listed’ and make sure the following are listed:
      • node/add*
      • node/edit
      • user/*
      • admin*
      • user
      • imce*
      • cart/*
    7. Save Block

    The block is now placed and the pop-up email form should appear when the site is visited.

    NOTES: 

    • When a visitor sees the pop-up signup form on your site, MailChimp will store a cookie in their browser to keep it from appearing again, even if they don't choose to fill out the form. If they clear browser cookies or visit after a year, they will see the pop-up form again.
