I'm having problems getting Mailchimp Subscribe working when used in conjunction with Profile:Edit registrations or Cartthrob Checkout. Does anyone know if there are known conflicts with these Extensions/Modules.

Running EE v2.5.2 Cartthrob 2.2.2 Profile:Edit 1.0.7 Mailchimp Subscribe 2.1.0

The problem is that I've set a custom member field (member_subscribe). In mailchimp subscribe settings this is set as the trigger field and the trigger is 'Yes'. Once member has registered the trigger field is shown as Yes but when I login to Mailchimp there are no subscriptions registering under lists.

    You'll probably need to provide a better description of what 'having problems' means. – Tyssen Dec 10 '12 at 13:00

The version of MailChimp Subscribe on Devot-ee hasn't been updated in nearly 18 months, and the developer (Steven Lewis) is no longer actively developing it himself.

However, there are a number of forks on Github that add enhancements, including (I think) CT compatibility and Safecracker Registration support too.

Some of these have been merged into the original, so grab the version from GitHub rather than Devot-ee for starters, as they probably fix a number of issues/incompatibilities with recent EE versions.

Other than that as @Tyssen says you really need to provide more information about the specific issues you're having.

As an alternative approach, have a look at the (free) CT Mailing list addon instead. It's made by BNI (who make CT & Profile:Edit) and it allows you to hook directly into CT's checkout process. You could probably also pretty easily extend/reuse the same code to tie into one of Profile: Edit's hooks

  • Tyssen. By having problems I mean that I've set a custom member field (member_subscribe). In mailchimp subscribe settings this is set as the trigger field and the trigger is 'Yes'. Once member has registered the trigger field is shown as Yes but when I login to Mailchimp there are no subscriptions registering under lists. Problem. Tom I'll try some of the forks on git or the CT Mailing list addon (which I wasn't aware of) thanks for the feedback. – Micky Kelleher Dec 11 '12 at 16:08
  • Hi Micky, probably best to add his info about your specific issue as an edit to your question as it more likely to get seen there than as a comment on my answer. – Tom Davies Dec 11 '12 at 19:16
  • You can also use a proper API that is actively developed. Checkout my add-on Postmaster. It's not free, but it's a premium product that is actively supported and used by many. objectivehtml.com/postmaster – Justin Kimbrell May 11 '13 at 2:24

Any solution for EE 2.8 out there? The suprisehighway hack is causing errors:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method EE_Javascript::generate_json() in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/laatmaarzien/e2services/expressionengine/third_party/mailchimp_subscribe/ext.mailchimp_subscribe.php on line 274

  • Discovered the same problem with the native SL Mailchimp Subscribe version. I might go with another solution as it hasn't been updated in 3 years. – Bransin Dec 8 '14 at 22:09
  • This isn't really an answer, and should be a comment on the question. – jrothafer Sep 29 '15 at 19:30

We had the same issues. We hacked our way to a solution.
