How to use the newsletter form provided with the Sonaar theme

MailChimp is the most popular newsletter system in the world and its free.

We have a custom widget called MailChimp that give you the ability to opt-in your visitors into your MailChimp account. You will then be able to manage and send newsletter to your mailing list using MailChimp.

Step 1 – To use our widget, you will need a free MailChimp account and create an empty list.

Step 2 – Enter your MailChimp API Key in WP-Admin > Theme Options > MailChimp. To find your MailChimp API Key: 

  • Login to Mailchimp
  • Click your profile name to expand the Account Panel and choose Account & Billing Settings.
  • Click the Extras tab menu and choose API keys.
  • Copy an existing API key or click the Create a Key button

Step 3– Once your API Key is saved into WP-Admin > Theme Options > MailChimp, go edit your MailChimp Widget in your page (or footer) and make sure to select which List you want the user to be subscribed to for that widget. see screenshot: https://d.pr/i/fdvkXg

The lists in the dropdown in the screenshot are pulled directly from your MailChimp account so if you don’t see your list audience there, make sure MailChimp is correctly setup.

Things to know: If your audience list shows up in the dropdown, but you still cannot subscribe from your website, make sure your list’s settings do not requires First Name and Last Name in the Audience fields and *|MERGE|* tags. See screenshot: https://d.pr/i/MYGvUn

Otherwise, make sure to enable First Name and Last Name in your elementor widget: https://d.pr/i/xVPPeG
