Configuring MailChimp to work with OptimizePress 2

If you're using OptimizePress 2, and you want to keep the pretty OptimizePress opt in forms, but tie that in with your own MailChimp opt-in code you'll need to follow these steps:

 

 

1. First thing is first, you'll need to have already set up a page that will contain your opt in form using the OptimizePress 2 'Page Builder' and reached the 'Live Editor' section at the end.

If you've already created a page with an opt in form, edit the page and select the 'Live Editor'.

When you're here, hover over the input box fields, and click the pencil logo - which represents the 'edit' function

2. Now you're editing your OptimizePress opt in code, so select the 'Custom Form' selection from the drop down menu.

Now you will see a 'Form HTML' text box where you can paste the HTML code from your MailChimp opt in form (you'll need to login to your MailChimp account to get this code)

3. After you have inserted the code in the right place, scroll down and make sure the fields of your form are all here - you might need to scroll to the bottom and click the 'Add New' Extra Field button if there aren't enough fields.

The order of the text boxes starts at zero, so if you want a specific box to show first it has to have a 'Email Field Order' of 0, not 1.

4 If you notice the 'Form URL' field isn't populated, click anywhere in the white spaces between the fields and it should populate.

Now you're done here, so click the 'Insert' button.
