    Hi Marcus - to do this you need to create a custom page. How you do this depends on whether you use Beam or a classic template.

    If you use Beam, then from the Site Builder, edit the navigation area of your website and add a new page - call it 'mailing list' or equivalent, then edit the page source (using the '<>' button in the text editor) and paste in the embed code from your MailChimp account.

    If you're using a Classic template, you can use two custom pages. They are available from this page: http://www.photoshelter.com/mem/site/pages - click on the Custom Page 1 or Custom Page 2 items and you can edit the MailChimp code and paste in the code with the 'HTML' tab selected in the text editor.

    Sorry - need more information. Are you seeing an error message? Can you paste into a text editor to confirm you've copied the MailChimp form code?

    Marcus, I have a MC account, where do I find the code on MC to add a sign up page like yours?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Were you able to get this to work? When I paste the embed code into a custom page, some of the code remains visible and the form doesn't render correctly. (See my post on this: https://support.photoshelter.com/hc/communities/public/questions/212630867-MailChimp-form-embed-not-working.)

    Since this is an old thread, things might have changed, but I am not cure what is meant by "Beam" or "Classic". I am using the "East v1.1.0" template and am having issues with Mail Chimp forms. When I try to add a pop-up mailing list form, nothing happens. And when I try to embed a form using HTML on say my "About" page, it looks unattractively different than it's supposed to. 

    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
