Mailchimp signup form popup in Sitefinity
In this blog I will tell you how to integrate Mailchimp into your Sitefinity CMS.
Mailchimp: email campaign tool
Mailchimp is an email campaign tool where you can setup and manage email campaigns. By default Mailchimp comes with some powerful functions. One of them is that signup forms can be easily integrated into your website. Mailchimp also offers the possibility to integrate a signup popup form into your website.
This is also possible in your Sitefinity website with the Sitefinity script widget. The following steps will help you to achieve this:
1. Create a subscribe form popup in Mailchimp and copy the generated script code:
2. Copy this code into a Sitefinity script widget or page template to determine the placement of your popup:
Note that the script starts with a closing </script> tag and ends with a <script> start tag. This is default behavior of Sitefinity because the Sitefinity script widget wraps the script with opening and closing tags. Also make sure that the script will be placed before the closing body tag.
Now the widget, page or template can be published and a popup will be shown based on the settings you made in the Mailchimp form.
The script will only work when the user is not logged in into the backend.
