Mailchimp Interest Group


How would I get a Perch Form checkbox to submit an Interest Group ID to Mailchimp? It works fine when you use a hidden input as per the docs but I want a user to choose their own groups for sign up by using a checkbox. On submission I get a Notice: Undefined index: warning and Mailchimp rejects the submission citing:

    [body] => {"type":"","title":"Invalid Resource","status":400,"detail":"Invalid interest ID: '_empty_'.","instance":"2f4c3509-cea2-4ed7-b097-4a17b7ef6db7"}

I've seen a few similar posts on the forum - e.g. this one, but none of them have a solution other than writing an app.

I think I would do this:

<perch:input type="checkbox" id="cheese" value="a375f7a461" mailer="interests">

What did you try?

Yes, that's exactly what I used (see below) and received the reply from Mailchimp as shown above. I think Perch submits an empty value even though the checkbox is unchecked and so the submission gets rejected.

<perch:input type="checkbox" name="visiting" class="f-checkbox" id="visiting" value="7c7cc6036f" mailer="interests">

That sounds like it could be a bug then. I'll look into it.

Thanks Drew
