Mailchimp submit button not showing up? Having problems with Mailchimp form code not working properly in WordPress?
Here’s 4 ways that may help to fix the problem.
Generally, adding an embedded form to a WordPress install is safe. However, in some rare instances, there can be a perfect storm of a specific version of WordPress, jQuery, and the embedded form which will cause the submit button not to render as expected. There are several options that you have in order to get things rendering as expected.
1) The first option is to leave things as-is, but make sure to have the most up-to-date install of WordPress and jQuery. This should clear up the issue of the submit button not showing up, but updating jQuery can be somewhat of a hassle. You might even need to download a third-party plugin to pick which version of jQuery to run.
2) Another option that you have is to use an iframe. This will essentially pull in the embedded from in it’s own window within your page. This method requires a little extra coding and knowledge of iframes. We can’t really support the setup involved in this, but we can definitely point you in the right direction! W3Schools.org has some good documentation on how iframes are set up:
3) The third option is a little different. Instead of using the embedded form for your WordPress install, MailChimp do offer a plugin for WordPress! Using the plugin will eliminate any sort of compatibility issue and also allow you to style the form using our built-in editor or doing it manually through CSS (if you’re a code monkey…hehe).
You can directly download the plugin, here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mailchimp/
Or, by searching for “MailChimp” in the plugin directory.
4) The fourth option if all else fails is to use integrate the MailChimp addon with Gravity forms. This way you’ll be using the Gravity forms tag rather than MailChimp code which should solve the problem.
