Elegant shows a form to subscribe to your newsletter, above the fold, in the right section of every article. Increased visibility is said to increase number of subscribers.

You need to put your Mailchimp form action URL in MAILCHIMP_FORM_ACTION in your configuration file.

To customize user experience you can also define,

  1. EMAIL_SUBSCRIPTION_LABEL,
  2. EMAIL_FIELD_PLACEHOLDER and
  3. SUBSCRIBE_BUTTON_TITLE

You can see Mailchimp Form in action in the sidebar. It’s a working example. Enter your email address so that we can send you news of new Elegant releases in your inbox.
