    Can two feeds exist for one MailChimp list?

    Thanks,
    Roy

  2. Yes, you can have multiple feeds sending data to a single MailChimp list from multiple forms. But currently only one MailChimp feed is supported per form.

    Thanks, Carl. I need the second part of your response. We have a list with a two email addresses, so I would like to have the ability to add them both to our list.

    Can a PayPal feed and a MailChimp feed exist for the same form? That would be a workaround if so.

  4. Yes, a PayPal feed and MailChimp feed can be used on the same form.

    Your example is one of the reasons why we plan on adding support for multiple feeds per form in certain situations. So it is a feature we plan on adding in the future.

  5. Count me in as someone interested in this feature. I'm implementing a design where the ideal set up is to have a couple of checkboxes each representing a different RSS feed on the site which would be set up in mailchimp, and then depending on which were ticked the user would be added to the appropriate list/lists.

    I'll see if there are any filters to allow me to do this with one of the submit hooks anyway but if you have time to point in the right direction it'd be greatly appreciated.

  6. I've looked a little further and a good way to do this is with mail chimp's grouping within lists.

    If you set up hidden text fields in your mail chimp form (on the mail chimp site this is) they will come up as options in mailchimp feed settings in the wordpress admin.

    Create checkboxes or radios that correspond to the hidden text fields in your mail chimp list form and assign the values of them to those hidden text fields.

    Go back to mailchimp and then for each feed you want people to subscribe to create an RSS campaign, then on step 2 set it up so people subscribe to a segment of that list (eg. the feed they've opted in to) and then use mailchimp conditions to say if the hidden text field corresponding to that feed is not empty then subscribe them.

    Done!

  7. Yes, you can use MailChimp List Segmentation and Custom Fields to implement functionality that is similar to Groups. MailChimp List Segmentation is pretty powerful.
