It would be phenomenal if someone could create a Wordpress plugin for this - for the no so code savvy- but interest persons 👍

Has this been figured out yet for wordpress? Should the script be enqueued instead of put in the footer? I have added every set of code on this page and the button still does nothing :( Has anyone figured out even a plugin for this to work??

You need to check ur mailchimp widget settings as "Open Immediately", otherwise it won't work.

I cannot get this to work. Don't know how many times I can cut and paste with same result. Nothing happens when I click on my Subscribe button.

MailChimp outputs this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//downloads.mailchimp.com/js/signup-forms/popup/unique-methods/embed.js" data-dojo-config="usePlainJson: true, isDebug: false"></script><script type="text/javascript">window.dojoRequire(["mojo/signup-forms/Loader"], function(L) { L.start({"baseUrl":"mc.us17.list-manage.com","uuid":"my-uuid","lid":"my-lid","uniqueMethods":true}) })</script>

fwiw, this works automatically, but I want it to to work on-click obviously.

I'm modifying as such:
Putting this in the head

<script type="text/javascript" src="//s3.amazonaws.com/downloads.mailchimp.com/js/signup-forms/popup/embed.js" data-dojo-config="usePlainJson: true, isDebug: false"></script>

<script>
function showMailingPopUp() {
    require(["mojo/signup-forms/Loader"], function(L) { L.start({"baseUrl":"mc.us11.list-manage.com","uuid":"my-uuid","lid":"my-lid"}) })
    document.cookie = "MCEvilPopupClosed=; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC";
};

document.getElementById("open-popup").onclick = function() {showMailingPopUp()};
</script>

putting this in the body

<button id="open-popup">Subscribe to our mailing list</button>

I've tried changing the baseUrl to match, changing the embed.js source to match. I've tried putting it in just a blank html file to see if something was interfering.

Seems so simple, but I can't get it working.

Thanks

Awesome! Thank you. I've updated the original code.

  • Cookie was renamed (Causing the button only to work once)
  • Generated code from MailChimp was slightly different from the original example.
  • I added a prefix to the function name and button ID to make it unique for my my needs. (themoShowMailingPopUp and themo-get-notified)
  • Don't forget to replace [my-uuid] and [my-lid] with the values autogenerated from MailChimps form creator in your account.

This example doesn't appear to work after replacing the MailChimp Ids and adding the scripts to the <head>.

If anyone is still using this, it might be helpful to know that you should delete 2 cookies to get the popup to show on click:

document.cookie = “MCPopupClosed=; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC”;
document.cookie = “MCPopupSubscribed=; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC”;

They're defined in _hasCookies in popup.js.

Also - I put this before window.dojoRequire.

To combine several posts above here is the showMailingPopUp function which worked for me
(with mailchimp via ShopSync on Shopify, to trigger popup via button):

  function showMailingPopUp() {
           //  If your mailchimp popup tried loading automatically, but had a cookie and did not show
           //  If not done, close button would not work (sorry for jQuery)  -- basically removes previous popups
    $('[id^="PopupSignupForm"]').remove(); 	
           // clear 2 cookies on the root path
    document.cookie =     "MCPopupClosed=; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC; path=/";
    document.cookie = "MCPopupSubscribed=; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC; path=/";

   dojoRequire(         // using uniq methods, some older code may work with simple require
      ["mojo/signup-forms/Loader"], 
      function(L) { 
        L.start( {
          "baseUrl":"XXXX.usXX.list-manage.com",
          "uuid":"YOUR_USERID",
          "lid":"YOUR_FORM_ID",
          "uniqueMethods": true      // force using uniq methods inside, otherwise will complain about "require/define not defined"
        }); 
      });
  };

You can check here I ask question on stack overflow.

@Naren-hybreeder
mailchimp produces embeddable HTML code which includes something similar to:

<form action="https://uXXXXX.usXX.list-manage.com/subscribe/post?u=0f6d154d46c829d7990000000&amp;id=0d65b50000" method="post">

parameter U is UUID (which is 0f6d154d46c829d7990000000 in the example above) and ID is the form id (which is 0d65b50000 in the example).
If you can see the popup, then it will have this form line as well.
Not sure if there are other ways to find it out.

  }
</script>
<a class="mailchimp-subscription-block__button" onclick="openMailchimpPopup()">SUBSCRIBE</a>

I found the secret behind this to be searching for mailchimp cookies (usually MC something) on the Developer Console and setting them appropriately.

@ilium007 I believe you should be loading embed.js from the cloud at //downloads.mailchimp.com/js/signup-forms/popup/unique-methods/embed.js and not from your local machine/server (file:///js/signup-forms/popup/unique-methods/embed.js).

Double check the src attribute for the <script> where you're loading Mailchimp's embed.js.

Could I also add to the list of code suggestions? I've been trying with a bit of code that works both on WordPress and stand alone pages and I seem to have successfully integrated it with a timer of sorts. So a user visits the page, it waits for a fixed duration of time (3s in this case) displays the form and then if the user cancels but then decides that they do want to subscribe, I have added a button for them to get that form back. If they click the 'subscribe-toggle' button so the form appears, but then refreshes/revisit the page the form should re-appear automatically again after 3 seconds. Notes: Script requires jQuery, won't work from local computer file system, needs to be hosted on a web service.

<a id="subscribe-toggle" class="button">Subscribe</a>

<script type="text/javascript" src="//downloads.mailchimp.com/js/signup-forms/popup/unique-methods/embed.js" data-dojo-config="usePlainJson: true, isDebug: false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	(function( $ ) {
		function openMailchimpPopup() {
			window.dojoRequire( ["mojo/signup-forms/Loader"], function(L) { L.start( { "baseUrl": "YOUR_SERVER_BASE_URL" , "uuid": "YOUR_UUID" , "lid": "YOUR_LIST_ID" , "uniqueMethods": true } ) } );
		}
		$(function() {
			$( window ).load(function() { setTimeout( openMailchimpPopup, 3000 ); } );
			$( 'a#subscribe-toggle', document ).on( 'click', function( e ) {
				$( '[id^=PopupSignupForm_]', document ).remove();
				document.cookie = 'MCPopupClosed=;path=/;expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC;';
				document.cookie = 'MCPopupSubscribed=;path=/;expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 UTC;';
				openMailchimpPopup();
			} );
		} );
	} )( jQuery );

Hi there, as far as I've experienced recently in one of our projects, this "window.dojoRequire" option is not longer possible since 16 June 2020 and it just throws an error and conflicts with some other JS code :( .

Has anyone had same issue?
