    I'm looking for anyone who has found a way to integrate a Constant Contact newsletter as a post...category would be Newsletter...post would be say...October Newsletter.

    I know CC has a archieve feature but if I understand it correctly you only get a "read newsletters" button.

    I'd perfer if each newsletter was a post...and of course with all the click monitor capabilities...but I'd settle for just the newsletter and images.

    Have you tried going to the HTML tab in the Constant Contact editor and copying all the HTML?

    Then go to a WordPress post and click on the editor's HTML tab and paste all that HTML in.
    Then delete the HTML from the very top down to and including <body>
    and delete from the very bottom up to and including </body> (just a line or two most likely)
    Then add a title and publish the post.

    See what happens - it might well work the first time.

    You are not gonna get click monitor unless the links in your CC template have CC url's and not your original URL's. If you want to copy and paste them from a live CC email, to replace your original links, you can do that.

    I have the same question as Michael-Can you post your Constant Contact Email Newsletter in your Blog? If so, how do you do it? This must be possible. Can someone link me to their Blog where they have done this?

    Constant Contact doesn't provide a simple way of doing this. There are some ways that you could possibly do it using the API, but that would take lots of development time to get right.

    We're moving from Sharepoint to WordPress platform. Constant Contact newsletters were posted by copying the html from the newsletter and pasting into a new page on the Sharepoint site (with a few edits in Dreamweaver). It turned out great, just like our newsletter regularly looks when sent via email. (http://familysupportclearinghouse.org/Newsletters/Pages/August2010.aspx).

    When I take this same html and transfer to a page in WP (as suggested above) the formatting gets messed up: different font types, sizes and colors, the images aren't visible, and other issues. (http://www.familysupportclearinghouse.org/Newsletters/Documents/ConstantContactKINewsWP.pdf). How do I make the newsletter appear correctly?
