Hi,

We have a small SAAS application, and we want to start emailing our users a weekly email.

Can anyone recommend an approach for this? Does Mailchimp or other similar services allow you to use their API to pull the $Email, $FirstName and $EmailPreferences from your database and then send all of the emails?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

Does anyone know of a wordpress plugin that works like this? http://donateri.org  - the client wants something like that, and also: Ideally it would integrate with mailchimp and can be set up to send a reminder of the pickup the day before.

If there is no such thing, where could we go to have it developed?

We have developed a MailChimp RSS Newsletter template. However, our RSS feed from the Wordpress site is not exporting images. Now we need to set up code for a Mail Chimp RSS Newsletter that will export the featured image from post in the appropriate size for the template.

We need expertise to code the RSS feed to include the appropriately sized images.

Here’s the feed: https://iVoteAmerica.com/feed

Need media content code in the functions.php file to export the featured images, and prefer not to use a plugin.

Hi,

I am attempting to change a 'Message' text field to a text area on a shortcode form element part of the Enfold Wordpress theme. To get a better idea of what I mean please check this url:

http://www.headstudios.com.au/mailchimp-form-test/

As you can see this is a form that is linked to my Mailchimp list - it works perfect - except I would like the Message text field to be a text area. Since this shortcode is generated by a bunch of complex code in the Enfold theme I had asked them how this could be done - and you can see the question (and their answers) in the URL below:

https://kriesi.at/support/topic/make-message-text-area/

I am confused about the code that is recommended RE: apply_filters etc.

You can see the mailchimp.php code in the link below:
https://pastebin.com/bhszS5xw

I am confused about the advice - and I should mention that the link I had provided was to a page that is now removed - so the id of the form fields could be different - I have recreated the form since then.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone could clarify how I could apply their code to the real life example of the form here:

http://www.headstudios.com.au/mailchimp-form-test/

Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a form located here: www.headstudios.com.au/sample-mailchimp-form/

This is a Mailchimp sign up form that comes standard with the Enfold Wordpress template. What I would like to do is to modify it so that the 'Message' field is a textarea.

When I try to change this manually in the inspector the validation and the submission options don't work.

What I would like to do is to know what elements have to be changed in the JS so that this form works to submit as a textarea - which will pass both the validation (so it becomes green if you try to submit without an email) and the PHP submission. I assume that once it passes PHP submission it won't matter on the php processing page whether or not it's a text area since it'll only receive the data.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a form here: headstudios.com.au/hsfast at the bottom - which is an ajax form. It is linked to my Mailchimp and I am trying to make the text field a text area for the 'Message' field (which would involve modifying the theme files to some extent).

My question is - how can I find the jQuery that gets fired when the form is submitted? Preferrably I would like to do this with Firefox - I have been doing some reading about the debugger but what I would ideally like is to click on the Submit button and see what code gets triggered.

Any input would be much appreciated (and if you could just tell me where the code is that would be great too).

Thanks

I just received this notification from MailChimp.

We strongly encourage any developers who are using the MailChimp API to ensure that their software supports negotiating TLS 1.2 connections, and to coordinate with their system administrators to update software to take advantage of newer TLS versions. In addition, we recommend proactively switching over to TLS 1.2 when communicating with MailChimp’s API by modifying your API client software to enforce TLS 1.2 negotiation.

I have written some code in PHP that makes an API call to MailChimp. I'm not sure how to tell or know if I am using TLS 1.2 to communicate with their API.

How does one make sure you are or find out what protocol you are using?

Is there a way to create a list in MailChimp and have subscribers subscribe to it by sending an email to a particular address? Similar to an old "listserve" list in which a person could subscribe by sending an email to listname-subscribe@domain.com.

Thank you.

Does anyone know of, or have an evaluation of the various mailing services out there.  Some of the services seem useful but expensive.  Some don't even have a phone number to speak to a marketing or support rep! Gotta reach out by email if you need help. (Scary if you're having a critical deadline.)

I'm emailing about 5,000 messages a month (our database consists of 3,000 subscribers) for a government agency notifying constituents of policy changes and software upgrades. So I'm not selling any product where I need payment transactions.

Please provide links to any articles, blogs which evaluate these types of services or blogs/sites which discuss these types of services.  When I google, I get link farms and other oddities popping up in search results.

Hello,

Here's what I'm trying to achieve...

I want to create a register of people whom are willing to volunteer to a specific community-based organisation, and to hold details of the skills/equipment/experience/expertise that they are willing to volunteer.  For the people who have already shown an interest, all I have currently is a list of email addresses. What I would need to do is to send out via email some sort of form/survey, asking to tick/untick many different boxes stating what they can do to help.  Either this of just send out a link, and have the users log in, but I realise that this would then add complexity with passwords etc.

The data will not be available to the public, but designated people should have access to the system in order to run some sort of report on, for example, all the people who have book-keeping experience, or all the people living in a specific area that can lend a minibus, or a list of people who can help with marketing etc.

I would also need for the data to be updated annually, so an user's previous answers would need to be made available to them somehow, either by sending them it via email, or directing them to log in somewhere.

As this is a volunteer-based project, there will be no funds available. I'm guessing that I won't be able to achieve all of the above without parting with some money, but what's the nearest I can get to it for free, or for a minimal expense?

Thanks for any ideas you may have.

I'm new using MailChimp, and I've created a "campaign" to send out to the email list for our non-profit chorus.  However, when testing, none of the images show in the email, only the placeholders.  I have a logo and another graphic.  Even the icons for Facebook, etc that are already part of the page design don't show.  
I've reduced the images sizes, allowed cookies, running java.  Don't know what to do to get them to show.

As a newbie I rented a winserver2016 vps and dezigned a wordpress site on it. The site is simple wit 8 pages, 2  mailchimp forms, some picures and two youtube embedded links.
Now I have 2 options:
a) hosting my site on a hosting server with CentOS servers (Versio)
b) keeping the winserver2016 at TransIP and keep the site running on it

I have insufficiënt knowledge about securing a CentOS server and would be happy working within a Microsoft en ironment which I am familiar with.
Mail will be done by hosted mailservers of Versio or TransIP

I need the sit to be stable and fast and would like to know how many visits a month can be served by both options without major delay (less than 1 sec for loadi g a page is required)
The wordpress theme is generated press with 4-6 plugins for mailchimp, security and youtube.

Any advise will be apreciated highly!!

Hi Experts,

I have a client that did a mail blast using mailchimp and says that those emails went to Junk or Promo folders.

If I was to do the blast using PHP and loop one by one email, would this be avoided?

Thanks,

Why doesn't servers.mscv.net  have any SPF record, so include:servers.mscv.net will just break my SPF record.

Dear Experts

Our digital agency said email marketing will be effective that is mails getting delivered to inbox or promotional tab is assured if the complete mail is with only one image file (png file) without any text in the email body, full image in the email body, according to them by doing this google algorithm will not identify this as it is image hence mails will not be spam and assured inbox delivery or promotional tab. Please suggest is this correct in reality. thanks in advance

Hi

One of the staff use mail chimp and sends out the news letters through mail chimp campaign.
When the news letter is viewed in outlook 2013 it looks ok, but if I view through OWA 2007, the formatting is all over the place. Please let me know how to trouble shoot this.
Will there be any settings in exchange, that I need to enable or disable. OR will this be something that needs to be done in mailchimp.

Thanks  and any help would be great.

There is no MailChimp 'Content' heading in design mode, along with 'Design' and 'Comments' which do exist.

The 'Content' pane is required to access Content Blocks in the design mode.

This URL - http://kb.mailchimp.com/campaigns/content-blocks/about-content-blocks - lists the Content Block Types which can be dragged into the design area.

I need a text block to create image with wrapped text

I am using free version of MailChimp

One of our RSS feed URL's has been https://neighborsofchampaign.com/feed?cat=-4  originally set to pull our General News feed from a Wordpress site.  These RSS feeds are being used with MailChimp campaigns.

Other specific Wordpress categories are formatted  https://www.neighborsofchampaign.com/?cat=210&feed=rss2

Questions:
1. What is the -4 value effect on the RSS feed?  Note: the actual category ID for General News is 3 in our case.
2. Is the domain/?cat=xxx&feed=rss2  the formal way to format rev 2 of RSS?

I am the designated admin for multiple MailChimp accounts.  Recently noticed one of our subscription links for a production site, seems to have one of my development domain names within the URL.

Our production site for our Calendar subscriptions is https://calendar.neighborsofchampaign.com

The MailChimp subscription form link is:
http://etcil.us13.list-manage2.com/subscribe is the URL in question.

Odd thing is:
"etcil" happens to be one of my development domains.

The subscription form does its job, but has me concerned should the time come where my development site become unavailable.  This does not seem like a coincidence and has me bugged :)   Looking for help back tracking to understand what the connection is?

Hi
Can anyone help here?  I found a user trying this recently, thus uploading client addresses to it for mailing.   We blocked it as we have an internal solution.
Where is the data stored?  Would anyone else use this for corporate mass email marketing?
Thanks

if you look at my code over mobile, the sentences that wrap tuck under the numbers and the shorter sentences get indented too much. looks great in desktop but does anyone know how to fix these 2 issues in mobile?
