Known issue with MailChimp

MailChimp changed their embed code so that only the “M” is capitalized, and our embedding widget expects the old style where MailChimp is “camel-cased” with a capital M and C. Existing embeds still work, but until our next release (2.7.0) is shipped, if you need to add a new MailChimp form to your site, you will have to manually change the lowercase “c” in “Mailchimp” to a capital C. in the first line of code.
