What is MailerLite?

MailerLite is easy to use web-based email marketing software. It can help you create and send email newsletters, manage subscribers, track and analyze results.

Do I need a MailerLite account to use this plugin?

Yes, you can easily register at www.mailerlite.com

How to display a form in posts or pages?

Use shortcode with form id which you created [mailerlite_form form_id=1].

How to display a form in widget areas like a sidebar?

Just add “MailerLite sign up form widget” and select form you have created

How to display a form in my template files?

Use the load_mailerlite_form($id) function.

<?php
if( function_exists( 'load_mailerlite_form' ) ) {
    load_mailerlite_form(0);
}
How can I style the sign-up form?

You can use CSS rules to style the sign-up form, use the following CSS selectors to target the various form elements.

Every form can be different, because element ID of form is:

#mailerlite-form_(your_form_id)

Elements of form can be styled.

.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-title {} /* the form title */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-description {} /* the form description */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-field label {} /* the form input label */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-field input {} /* the form inputs */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-loader {} /* the form loading text */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-subscribe-button-container {} /* the form button container */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-subscribe-button-container .mailerlite-subscribe-submit {} /* the form submit button */
.mailerlite-form .mailerlite-form-response {} /* the form response message */

Add your custom CSS rules to the end of your theme stylesheet, /wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/style.css. Do not add them to the plugin stylesheet as they will be automatically overwritten on the next plugin update.

While we had some issues getting approved (this can be frustrating) I can say that in 24 hours they turned things around and have been very helpful in solving some issues. The plug-in works great and I recommend it without reservation.

Seems to be scams, Once you pay they will disapprove your account immediately. thieves.

The plugin is decent and needed for MailerLite functionality (forms) on your WordPress site. In trial mode, I've moved from Drip to Active Campaign to MailLite and the improvement on each step has been very significant. Staying with MailerLite. I continue to be amazed at the thoughtfulness the designers have put into the MailerLite user interface (UI). Really.

I don't understand the point. Why you ask the user to signup for the API, when you ultimately disapprove the account anyway. I have signed up and didn't even send a single email, and they disapprove the account for spam. This was my 1st account with them. It looks like they are collecting emails for marketing.

It does what it has to do. Never crashed on my sites and doesn´t slow them down. For more functionalities I use different opt-in-plugins that integrate with Mailerlite.
