Inconsistent with adding entries / subscriber mailchimp

  1. During development I get mixed results when filling out a form which is linked to MailChimp. For example, several tests with a gmail account. Sometimes it's added as an entry in MailChimp directly but more often not at all. I thought that it might was a Google delay. Because of this I tried different mail accounts. Private, commercial, own mail server, google, hotmail, @ me, etc. Often the same result. I can not make sense to me because it was not a consistent event.

    - forms are set up correctly
    - mailchimp plugin is setup correctly
    - added smtp stuff in wp installation

    Could it be a problem that we are running on a multisite, nothing fancy though.

    Latest WP, everything up2date.

    Besides Gravity Forms nothing fancy pluginwise:

    - Askimet
    - Block Bad Queries (BBQ)
    - Duplicate Post
    - Login Lockdown
    - Update Notifier
    - Wordpress Database Backup

    Any help or thoughts much appreciated.

    With regards,


    Did some testing, on a normal WP domain / install it works. On the multisite it has issues. Gmail gets accepted instantly though (also not all of them). But is not showing up at all in MailChimp.

    So looks like MultiSite has something to do with it somehow but we can't put our finger on it.

  2. Just to add...

    - tested is on complete fresh wp install, all settings are correct, not working.
    - tried a different webserver, not working
    - trief different hosting, not working

    Oh and I'm flabbergasted about the amount of support / replies from you guys, excellent.
