Dear everyone,
I am new to CF and this Forums. I started using CF couple of days ago (version 6). I am creating a Easy Form and trying to simply add whoever submitted this form to my MailChimp List.
I am really lost in the very beginning and really couldn't find any solution to add the submitted emails by using CF6. Could you please kindly help me, send me simple guid or link to help me to get this works?
It is really a great help if you could do so.
Best regards,
Jej

Hi Jej,
You can connect to MailChimp using the cURL action to send the form data and your MailChimp user info.

Hi Bob,
I am trying to connect my form to mailchimp using the cURL action and am wondering if you have an example of how to do this?
Currently I am able to connect to mailchimp but am getting an error:
"Your request did not include an API key."
Thanks for you help

Well did you include an API key?

@healyhatman; Yes. I have tried entering the user:'anystring:<your_apikey>' (and yes I changed the "your_apikey" to mine in mailchimp). What are you putting in the "Data override" section of the cURL action?

The Chronoforms parser generally turns the second ':' into an equals sign, which might be happening here. Either use a {var:} to hold the string or make your own CURL action in a PHP block.
