    Hi, I am using one of the default GP Site Library templates: Podcast for my website.

    On the home page, there is a email sign-up form that uses the Mailchimp 4 WordPress plugin – see here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zZsLyzzKfIVZEKqm8RWu4tWUFRTpoMVO/view?usp=sharing

    When I go to the Mailchimp 4 WordPress plugin forms, I cannot find the default form that is being used by the Site Library template (id = 3756). Instead, it just gives me a new test form. How do I edit the form that is being used? (I want to keep it but make small changes to it).

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    You’ll need to do some API settings in Mailchimp with your own info before you can create or use the forms.
    This should help:

    Hi Ying,

    Yes I already added my API to replace the existing one. To add to my initial question, I see that custom CSS is being applied to style the email opt-in form, but I don’t see any code that changes the text in the opt-in button itself (currently says “JOIN”). Where can I change that text?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi there,

    go to Dasboard > Mailchimp > Form.
    Within you will see the HTML the form uses:

    <input type="email" name="EMAIL" placeholder="email" required /><input type="submit" value="JOIN" />

    Change the value to whatever you require.

    Hi David,

    Got it, I get that part. However, when I go to MC4WP -> Form, it only shows a new TEST FORM, not the original one that is being used in the home page (it has a form id=3756, whereas my test form id=40).

    I don’t seem to see a way to select a different form either.

    Please see here for a screenshot: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DqsOfH64OKzf9WdOA3JDzakJZwKWw_c-/view?usp=sharing

    And this screenshot of the actual form on the home page: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zZsLyzzKfIVZEKqm8RWu4tWUFRTpoMVO/view?usp=sharing

    Thank you,
    Tom

    Hi there,

    I don’t seem to see a way to select a different form either.

    Are you using the free version that comes with the site library template? If yes, it only allows for 1 form. If you require multiple forms, you’ll have to get the premium version of the plugin.

    Got it, I get that part. However, when I go to MC4WP -> Form, it only shows a new TEST FORM, not the original one that is being used in the home page (it has a form id=3756, whereas my test form id=40).

    If you can’t retrieve the default form, you can simply remake the default with that current form.

    I’ve saved the screenshots for you to use as reference. Check these images:

    And make sure you change the shortcode placed on your block to match the newly created form. 🙂
