Suggestions on registration tutorial

    Hi all-
    I am pretty new to WP and am sorting through many things, learning a lot.
    I’ve built a site in WP using bbPress “inside” the OptimizePress 2 theme (if that’s the right language). I am trying to figure out how to make entering a username and email address mandatory for my forums, and how to link that email field to MailChimp.
    I’ve done some searching in the forum and online and can’t find anything – basic or otherwise – to help walk me through this. Either simple instructions or sending me towards a particular tutorial would be awesome.
    Thanks in advance,
    Matthew

    Thanks, Robin. That was wonderfully easy. DO you have suggestions about where I could read / learn about how the emails are managed? I assume there’s some internal database within bbPress but would like to see if I can connect it to MailChimp. Thanks again.

    it uses the wordpress user database to store email addresses, and will mail to the email address of the wordpress user as you set them up.

    Whilst a bit clunky, you could use

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/export-users-to-csv/

    to export the email addresses to a csv, and import them from there to mailchimp maybe via a macro.

    depends on how many users you have and how often you’re emailing.

    Just by chance found a mailchimp plugin, no idea if it will help you, but :

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp/

    probably worth a look !
