Hi there,

I am currently helping out a company with an eCommerce site in Magento Community Edition, but I'm struggling with embedding a Mailchimp email subscribe form into a page.

When I click Subscribe, literally nothing happens. The form is definitely validating, because I'm seeing error messages pop up when I click Subscribe without entering any details, but as soon as I enter details into each field, I click Submit and nothing happens.

Mailchimp's FAQs suggest that this is because of a Javascript conflict with another form that is already in the footer of the website.

Any idea how I could edit Mailchimp's code to get this to work?

Any help would be great.

Anyone at all? Really need some help with this.

What's the result in your console everytime you click the submit button?

I've never used the console before (I'm not really a programmer, as you can probably tell), but in Chrome, this is what shows when I open up the Console, enter some values and click Subscribe:

To clarify, if you can't see the picture above, here is the text:

Any help at all with this would be great. Can't figure it out.

You have to check what causes this error "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'hide' of null newsletter:345" at line 345
