This is looking great, what I'd love to see is the possibility to keep the MailChimp list in sync with a SilverStripe Group of members. Could this be a possibility?

I have a subscription site built with SilverStripe, and to be able to use MailChimp to send all my members an e-mail would be amazing!

hi purplespider,

It is possible to do it, I think you have to decorate the member dataobject. and to extend the member by adding a OnAfterWrite function.

Now there is something I dont think it is good to include this to the module for the releases. Cause this is solely for the mailchimp mailing lists, and if the users unsubscribe from the mailing lists then we have to unsubscribe them from the Member table as well.

What do you all think about it?

Cheers

I think the best way to implement it would be to have a boolean field for each member called "Mailings", then when someone unsubscribes from the MailChimp mailing list, it would just synchronise with SilverStipe by setting "Mailings" to false. This would leave the member in SilverStripe but would ensure they are never synced back to MailChimp.

So the list to be synced with MailChimp would be:
- All members of a certain group,
- Who have "Mailings" set as true.

Has there been any further development of this module? The last version I tried showed the email as html, has an HTML textarea been included yet for easy administration of the newsletter to be sent?

Also, that statistics page didn't seem to report any data back from my mailchimp mailing is this fixed or was it just a borked install?

Regards,

Hi,

i have just set up a mailchimp account and i am very impressed. I have also installed the mailchimpmodule within a Silverstripe 2.4.5 Installation and everything seems to be working fine. But i also got my problem with the TextArea for the HTMLContent field (Content Tab). Isn't there a easy way to use tinyMCE (HTMLEditorField) with all the wrapping code (Doctype, Styles, etc.)?

Does anybody know what HTML Editor mailchimp is using? That one is really Cool.

Greetings, Carsten.

Hi Sorry it took me a little longer to reply, probably because I have been unsubscribed from the thread (something has done it not me :P)

I am moving the codes to GitHub, will answer your questions shortly.

I'm having a related issue. I have installed the mail chimp module but it only shows me who is in a list and allows me to create a campaign. I am trying to embed a sign up for and SS keeps stripping out the code. I knowledge of code is decent but by far not advance. Is there an easy work around or is something not working with the module?
