MailChimp WordPress Plugin

wordpress_logo.pngOur API Team has been busy lately.

Right after posting new functionality to our API (the ability to pass content from your CMS to MailChimp for delivery), they went and created a nifty MailChimp WordPress plugin.

So if you’ve got a WordPress blog or website, and you’d like visitors to subscribe to your email newsletter (not everybody likes RSS), this is a convenient way to stick your MailChimp signup box right into your side column (we’re using it on this blog).

Installation is a snap. Once you’ve got it dropped into your WordPress directory and activated, you can configure everything from WordPress, right in your browser (what form fields to display, text, interest groups, and even the design). No coding necessary!
