Well done Mailchimp, impressive!
Thanks, that’s great news. I’ll be sure to update my FAQs to mention that if they are having problems they can update their embedded code. Do you have a link I can associate with the information?
Aside from our knowledge base article on how to grab it, not really. Any attempt at upgrade instructions would likely be quite flawed since it’s near impossible to tell what someone may have done as far as moving around or removing code we generate.
FWIW , it doesn’t sound like you guys are talking about our MailChimp List Subscribe Form, rather about our Embedded Signup form option.
Our actual plugin does properly use the wp_enqueue_* calls (feel free to verify that for yourself) for Jquery.The Embed Code form is definitely using an older version of Jquery, but it also works (which is mainly why we haven’t changed it). We’ve certainly heard complaints from people who blindly paste the code into their site(s) without considering possible conflicts or performance considerations, and unfortunately those same folks are often unable to resolve the issues that arise. We are typically willing to listen to feedback and make adjustments when someone points out something we could do better with the embed code, so if you’d like to make suggestions…
we have a name for those people, we call them dumbasses.
