    Yikes! Error: email is required

    i have followed the tutorials and i thought i did everything right BUT
    every time i try to test the opt-in it redirects to a blank page with a simple but ominous message:

    Error: email is required

    i am unsure what i did wrong.
    i ahve tried it on safari and firefox on a mac and both agve the same result.

    anyone have any ideas?

    UPDATE:
    after much mayhem i got it to work. how? i dunno... dumb luck.

    Hi,

    Perhaps it is a problem on the "detection code".

    What do you have on "Form EMAIL field:" in "Setup Opt-in Code" ?

    Is it "MERGE0" ?

    if you had provided a direct access to you by live messaging or a temp admin access to your wordpress, we could look for it.. but for now you don't provide a lot of details, and we can't go further

    It would be great if you can help me!

    I found the solution in another post so I'm sharing in case anyone comes across this. I watch this video (even though I do not speak French): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7IB1NCg-G0

    In short, I made 2 mods:
    1. When I chose the "classic" form, I selected the options drop down to include ALL fields instead of just required fields.
    2. After I selected "detect form", I didn't change anything. There are some instructions that indicate to change the URL to "/wp-content/plugins/wpsubscribers/mailchimp.php" but I left it as-is.

    Now, the form works.
