Configure Plugins

In order for the Verb theme to function as intended, several of the required plugins must be configured. They are,

  • ShiftNav – Responsive Mobile Menu
  • WordPress Popular Posts
  • Mailchimp for WordPress

Instructions for each are below.

Mailchimp for WordPress Plugin Configuration

In your Admin Panel go to Mailchimp for WP > Mailchimp. You will need to connect the plugin to your Mailchimp account with your API key.


Click on Get your API key here to be prompted to log into your account to find your API key.

Once logged in; copy and paste the API key.


Then click Save.

For the final step, in your admin panel, go to Mailchimp for WP > Forms.

And copy and past the following code into the form field.

<div class="form-intro">
    <h4>Get more stories like this <span>In your inbox!</span></h4>

    <p class="content"> Sign up for our daily email and get the stories everyone is talking about.</p>

<div class="form-fields">
     <div class="input-group">

         <input type="email" name="EMAIL" placeholder="Enter your email" class="form-control" required>
         <span class="input-group-addon"></span>

         <input type="submit" value="Subscribe" class="btn btn-default form-control">


Then click Save Changes.
