Anyone? I can't seem to get a hold of this developer via PM or via his website (www.vbtise.com).

It's odd because he was online yesterday...hmm....

I fixed that error for someone not too long ago.
Open the file /mailchimp/MailChimpSubs.php

Around line 127 you have:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Hi,

I just installed this. I'm trying to sync my forum members to mailchimp but it hasn't happened.

How do I view the logs? I don't understand where this is;

How to View Logs
admin end => vBtise Mail chimp => View Cron logs ( here you can see logs like total new added / updated records in Mail chimp List)
admin end => vBtise Mail chimp => Registraion Subscription error log ( list of users which are not successfully subscribed in mailchimp while registion )

Also, I noticed the version is 1.0 - it's suppose to be 1.0.2, yeah ?

My board is v4.2.2

Thanks

Nice mod!

Installation has gone smooth...

Can you confirm how often does this CRON script run?

I'm on vB4.

Installation went fine but it appears to not be adding anyone to the mailchimp list.

I assume it needs to run a cron job but not sure how or where to configure that.

AdminCp>Scheduled Tasks>Scheduled Tasks Manager>VBulletinMailchimp

And just after installing run the task manually for the first time.

By default it's scheduled for once a month. I have changed mine to once an hour since Mailchimp doesn't seem to mind

That's too bad because the mod actually works great.

If you manage to get a hold of him, please ask him to incorporate more features in the next version (if he ever makes one):

Should allow the segmentation based on usergroup. If a person is added to a specific usergroup, their account should be removed from sync.

Reverse sync: If a person unsubscribes from the mailchimp list, they should automatically be added to a specific usergroup.

These are the only things I can think of right now.
