I have been attempting to give a mailchimp extension to my joomla site, to ensure that customers can subscribe to a e-newsletter, maintained by mailchimp. The extension needs an API key from mailchimp to operate, however it keeps saying it cannot $params->get('apikey'), unless of course I take away the hyphen within the api key. (wich is not a legitimate key any longer).

Could there be considered a workaround with this?
