Adding MailChimp to your Pub Site Website

There are basically two types of signup forms you will use — a pop-up form that will appear, or "pop up," on the page when someone arrives at your website, and an embedded form that you can place almost anywhere on your website, including the sidebar column on the interior pages of your site. Many people use both.

Adding an Embedded Signup Form

- Once there, click the Pages & Navigation tab in the Admin menu. Find the Sidebar & Menu tab in the submenu.
- There are two menu windows on the Sidebar Content & Menu page. They are titled Side Menu & Content and Not Included. Drag Mailing List from the Not Included window to the Side Menu & Content window.
- Once you drag the Mailing List widget to the Side Menu & Content section, you will see a pop-up window. Paste the code in this window and click "Update Page".
- The pop-up window will disappear. Click "Save Changes"
To see your new form, click View Site in the top right corner.
To add the embedded form to any page on your website, follow these instructions:
- Go to the page on your website where you want the embedded signup form.
- Once there, open the Editor and click "Source". Doing this will show you the HTML code for the page. Paste the code wherever you would like the embedded form to appear and click "Save Changes". Tip: When in normal view, places Xs, like XXXXXX, where you want to place the form, so when you switch to Source view you can find the spot more easily.
