Features

  • Selection based on categories, post tags and any other taxonomy terms
  • Selection based on multiple taxonomy terms.
  • Template Support.
  • Edit area configuration.

History & Raison d’être

While working for Consorci Administració Oberta de Catalunya we integrated Mailchimp and WordPress to perform RSS Campaigns.

Having them on operation the customer faced the need of sending immediate messages when a content was published on a specific category. However, Mailchimp RSS Campaings doesn't allow this because they are launched time based.

So we decide tu build this component that creates an adhoc campaign "regular campaing" every time a content in certain taxonomies is published.

FAQ

I've updated a content and I want to send it again

You have to check the Force Resend in the top right area called 'Send'.

The post type I want to use does not appear on the admin page

Check if this post type:

  • has any taxonomy.
  • the taxonomy has values set (with or without elements).

Why pages are not shown in the admin page

In default WordPress install classes won't be displayed because pages don't have any taxonomy.

The content does not appear if I use a template

This plugin uses the 'std_content00' section (mc:edit) in the MailChimp template.

Where do I configure the mail contents?

You can setup a template to make the mails look as you want.

Some of the parameters from the mail are taken from the MailChimp List defaults:

  • Subject
  • From name
  • From email

Where is my message stored in MailChimp?

The message is stored as a campaign named as the list where it is sent with a YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS suffix.
