    Hi vickylyashenko,

    This theme is not have mailchimp feature, but you can use 3rd party plugin such as: “MailChimp for WordPress”. To integrate it on footer, it may need custom changes to template files regarding what plugins you use.

    Thank you

    One of the main reasons I purchased this theme is because of the beautiful subscriber form – there is no way I can make the mailchimp form look like that 🙁 Anyway you can help me integrate the two?

    Hi vickylyashenko,

    FYI, we not support 3rd party plugin, but it is really easy actually to integrate it.
    All we need to do is insert the shortcode with the same form markup with our theme. Here is step-by-step:

    1. Install “MailChimp for WordPress” plugin.
    2. After activate it, go to Mailchimp for WP > setup API Key, click “Get your API key here.” for further instruction.
    3. Go to Mailchimp for WP > Forms. Locate the Forms Markup then replace with this code:

      Save changes.

    4. Copy the shortcode right below Forms Markup textarea, example: “[mc4wp_form]”
    5. Edit theme’s file at: falive-themes/footer.php update the content with this:

    Thank you

    Thank you so much – the instructions helped so much! Thank you! How can I have the Name in there as well? Also, the email box is a little too wide and the padding is not there above the button. Thank you so much for your help!

    Hi vickylyashenko,

    You can Add new field for additional field available on plugin. But, our theme only support textbox input & button for styling, for textbox input you can follow the email by adding class “sml_emailinput” so it will have same appearance, for example:

    You may need custom CSS to reduce width if you feel its too wide. I can’t access your site anyway, it seem your site down? 🙁

    Thank you
