Mailchimp List not Updating


I am doing some local MAMP Pro testing of the new Mailchimp app. I have a simple signup form:

<div class="newsletter-sub">
<perch:form id="subscribe" app="perch_mailchimp" double-optin="false" class="signupform">
    <p>Thank you!</p>
        <perch:label for="email">Sign Up for our Newsletter</perch:label>
        <perch:input id="email" required="true" type="email" mailer="email" placeholder="Enter your Email Address" />
        <perch:error type="required" for="email">Required</perch:error>
        <perch:input type="submit" value="Submit" id="btnsubmit" />
        <perch:input type="hidden" value="1" id="confirm" mailer="confirm_subscribe" />
        <perch:input type="hidden" id="list" value="d7d3a95a63" mailer="list" />

When I fill it in I get the success message, and debug shows Subscribing to: Newgate Clocks which is correct. However the new email is not showing in either Mailchimp or Perch. The API Key is correct, I am not sure what else I need to do. There is this array under the subscribing message which looks like an error but I am not sure:

Yup, that's an error. I'll take a look.

Ok thanks Drew

Hi Drew,

Is this an error with my setup or the app? I could do with getting it working this week if possible, so if there is anything I can do please let me know.

You could add an FNAME field and make it hidden.

Hi Drew, perfect that fixed it.

Enjoy Boston!
