[resolved] eNews Extended (6 posts)

    My site has 23 different RSS feeds from various publications. I would like to have the ability for visitors to select specific feeds say 5 of the 23 and have those selected feeds sent each day via email to the user. Can eNews Extended do this? If not does the group know of any plug-in that will?

    Hi William,

    Short answer is no—that is beyond the usage envision by the plugin.

    Long answer: We can still do it. With a service like MailChimp, you can setup multiple groups on for your list (MailChimp tutorial) and then add the "extra" code to the Hidden Fields form in the plugin (as it accepts any input html tag).

    The styling may need to be tweaked, as this wasn't foreseen when the StudioPress themes were developed, but technically, it should work.

    With MailChimp, you'd need to setup an RSS->E-mail campaign for each of the RSS feeds, set to be sent to the specific group within your list. Once all that is done, you can get the signup code from MailChimp. That code can be dropped directly into a text widget or we can drop it into the plugin if you want to make it easier to get it to the established styling.

    Thanks!
    BK

    Thank you Brandon. The process you described seems manually intensive. Essentially, as I understand your response, we would need to set up a specific MailChimp Template for each subscriber. Is my understanding correct?

    If this the case then can we discuss developing a specific (new?) WP Plug-in to accomplish what I am looking for?

    Thanks WB

    Not quite. A template for each of the 23 feeds is what I was thinking. The downside is the subscriber would get an e-mail for each feed.

    There's probably better ways of doing it; just a part of the WordPress pie I haven't had any reason to dive into at this point.

    As far as a new plugin, this would be outside of my scope to do.

    Thanks,
    BK

    Hi Brandon,

    Sorry to come back to a thread that was already resolved, but I am trying to put two checkboxes underneath my sign up form, pulling from my mailchimp groups. If you look at my site at writewithwarnimont.com I have been able to copy in the extra code to the hidden fields form but I can't quite figure out how to make it look right. I'm not sure if this is something your support but I thought I would ask if you have any design recommendations for me.

    I would like to stack the two group options and then have the Join Now button below them. Once again I'm not sure how possible this is or if there is a feature I am looking over, but thanks!

    Joe

    I'm on my phone so can't do a full response yet. Can you start a new thread by using the form at the bottom of http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/genesis-enews-extended

    The original poster will get emailed all messages posted here, so we shouldn't fill his inbox with another issue. Plus, being in a separate thread, it is easier to direct someone to your question if either I need help or if the solution would be helpful to them too.

    Thanks!
