    Officially launching our site on Thursday, so need some last minute tweaks.

    Seems as if our Mailchimp widget on the home page isn’t working. A few people have tried it and gotten an error “FNAME must be provided – Please enter a value” after entering a legitimate email address.

    I’ve double checked our API and List #’s and they’re correct under theme options.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Sorry to bug you. I was able to figure it out and fix it in mailchimp. No more error messages. Seems to be working fine again.

    It sounds like you found it. There’s an option inside MailChimp where you can require a first name to be specified in order for the email to be added to the list. That’s usually the source of that error message. If it crops back up again, let me know.

    Have a great day and congratulations on the launch 🙂

    Thanks Bill! We’re soooo close!
