Making the Update

We want our current users to have as smooth a transition as possible so we have created guide to updating:

As always, you can submit support requests for the free version of our plugin to our Github Issue Tracker, and we will respond ASAP.

What’s new in this version?

Completely Rewritten Code

We make note of every support request and feedback message our users send us and have completely rebuilt the codebase to eliminate reoccurring issues. We also had the the code professionally reviewed to ensure it was the highest quality.

“This is certainly a well-coded plugin…it’s in the top 5% – 10% of plugins I’ve seen as far as code goes.”
Justin Tadlock, Co-author Professional WordPress Plugin Development

Brand New Interface

The plugin Admin has been completely redesigned with a streamlined interface.


New Knowledge Base

We have created a Knowledge Base full of articles with step-by-step guides on plugin installation, use, settings and developer documentation.

New Add-Ons

We built fabulous free and premium add-ons to extend the base functionality of Easy Forms for MailChimp. Paid add-ons also come with premium support.

One add-on we know you’ll love is the Form Customizer. With it you can completely customize the look of your forms without needing to know any code.

Watch this video demo if it in action.

Meet Evan Herman

We are excited to welcome web developer, Evan Herman, to the growing YIKES team. Evan is an accomplished WordPress developer, and we really love the fact that he geeks out on WordPress as much as we do!


He has developed two plugins for WordPress that can be found in the WordPress Plugin Directory.

  • YouTube Plus allows you to upload content to your YouTube account without having to leave your WordPress dashboard.
  • WordPress Icons – SVG will install 500+ SVG glyph icons for use on your WordPress website.

In November of 2013, Evan was interviewed on WP Tavern with Marcus Couch. You can listen to the podcast on the WP Taven website.  During the interview, Evan talks about his observations of the WordPress community and the future of plugin development.

He loves the WordPress community to a degree that when he gives his contact information, he always includes his WordPress.org user name! I would classify Evan as a “lunch bucket” type of developer. The kind of guy that isn’t seeking notoriety or accolades and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in mind-numbing code. He simply gets the job done for the betterment of the WordPress community and moves on to the next project.”  – Marcus Couch

We couldn’t agree more! Evan is a great addition to our team, and we are excited to see the great things he will build for our clients. Read what he has to say about working for YIKES on his blog.
