I use the plugin “Mailchimp for WordPress” to add Subscribe Box to Sidebar, normally, this plugin will be recommended to install right after install the theme.
Step 1: Go to Appearance –> Widgets –> Add “MailChimp Sign-Up Form” widget to Sidebar
Step 2: Now at your homepage, you see Subscribe Box, but, it’s still not workin
Because you have to do setting with Mailchimp by click MailChimp for WP.
Step 3: Click “Forms” and create a new form
Step 4: Then click Mailchimp, click get “Get your API key here” –> Sign up an account at Mailchimp.com –> Get API key.
Step 5: After sign up at Mailchimp.com, you must create a List.
Step 6: Back to your blog –> Mailchimp for WP –> Form –> Settings –> select that list for your form
You will manage the subsribers and create email template at mailchimp.com.
