Update your MailChimp addon before the end of the year

I’ve just released version 1.3 of the MailChimp addon for Restaurant Reservations. You must update before the end of the year if you want to continue subscribing customers to your MailChimp mailing list.

Why is this update so important?

On January 1, 2017, MailChimp will no longer support version 2 of it’s API. Only requests using the newest version of it’s API will be supported. If you don’t update your addon, your booking customers will no longer get automatically subscribed to your MailChimp mailing list.

How can I make sure I’m updated?

The latest version of my MailChimp addon (version 1.3) has been updated to support the new API calls. You can check which version you’re using by looking at the Plugins list in your WordPress admin area.

If you’re below version 1.3, you should get an update notification in your WordPress admin area. If you don’t get the update notification, make sure your license key is activated.

My license key is active but I don’t see an update.

In some cases, if you activated the license key at a development URL (like dev.mysite.com) and then moved the site to a live URL (like mysite.com), you may need to refresh your activation status. Try deactivating and reactivating the license.

If you have trouble reactivating the license, you may need to deactivate it at the old site. You can do this from the Customer Account area on this site.

My license has expired. Do I have to renew?

If you want to continue subscribing customers to your MailChimp mailing list, you’ll need an active license key to get the latest version of my MailChimp addon.

You can renew licenses at a discounted rate from your Customer Account.

Should I wait until January 1 to update?

No, you should update as soon as possible. The MailChimp addon will already work with the new API right now, so there’s no need to wait.

Will I have to change any of my settings?

Nope. All of your existing settings should remain in place.
