View Full Version : Custom form after updating mailchimp.php path to file

I created a custom form and displayed it fine within a post. Then I changed the path for my mailchimp Form Action URL: (because currently I am on dev server so my wp site is not at the root but in subdirectory, and when i submitted the form to test it tried to trigger the file at http://mydomain.com/wp-content/... instead of http://mydomain.com/subdirectory/wp-content/...

so just for testing I changed the Form Action URL to the actual full path URL, without success (the form disappeared from my post). I then tried to revert back to the old Form action URL path (/wp-content/plugins/wpsubscribers/mailchimp.php), but the form still does not display in the post.

Weird. It seems to strip the shortcode. The <code> tags are still there, but empty, while when you edit the post they display in the editor...

Must be a small bug that is caused when updating Form Action URL. Please look into this asap.

thanks

Hi,

I'm looking on your web I see the form but the action is
/wp-content/plugins/wpsubscribers/mailchimp.php
but the good one is
/deuil/wp-content/plugins/wpsubscribers/mailchimp.php

Peut etre je n'ai pas bien compris le probleme :( et si c'est le cas peut etre me le reexpliquer en francais ?

Bonjour!

je comprends que je n'avais pas le bon url pour le form action. Par contre, le formulaire sur ma page à disparu, même si le shortcode est toujours visible <code>[wps_custom_form id=1]</code> dans mon éditeur.

je joins une capture d'écran de l'article, où on ne voit pas le formulaire (aussi j'ai appuyé 2 x sur CTRL + F5 pour vider cache, sans succès).

merci de regarder dès que possible.

I updated the form action url, and tested the form. It gives me this error messgae:
Error: email is required

on this URL: http://alchimieweb.com/deuil/wp-content/plugins/wpsubscribers/mailchimp.php

of course I did enter a first name and an email address in the second field

any ideas what the bug / pb is ?

thanks
Florian

Hi Florian,

can you try tu put "email" in the Form Email Field, depending on your host, you may name to use “email” and not “EMAIL”

Merci!

yes, somehow this was it to make it work.

Is there a way to customize the redirection page's message (our site is in french) and also styling wise, and maybe lengthen the time it is displayed ?

Why don't we just use Mailchimp's redirection page ?

merci bcp de me revenir là-dessus...
