AutoChimp
Mailchimp Support: Text / Image Wrap and Post Title Display Issues with WordPres (2 posts)

    I am still testing a template that I have created in Mailchimp for a campaign from a WordPress post using the Twenty Eleven theme. It works well structurally by using Autochimp to connect the two platforms (WordPress and MailChimp). But I have two problems that I am hoping you can provide solutions for.
    1) The text in the WordPress post wraps around the image in WordPress but not in the email of the post that is sent from MailChimp. Also,
    2) The heading (or Title) of the post in WordPress does not display in the email of the post from MailChimp and there does not seem to be provision for capturing and displaying the WordPress post title.

    1) The way WordPress makes image text wrap is via the wordpress core CSS; this CSS needs to be present in your MailChimp, or it won't float your images. NOTE: Many mail clients don't recognize the CSS "float" property even if the CSS IS present. And, CSS his famously finnicky in mail clients. Therefore:

    1.1) You need to apply the alignment and padding (<img align="left" style="padding: 0 20px 20px 0" src="your_image_url">) directly to your images in your wordpress text editor.

    2) I've not used AutoChimp, but I know that in mailchimp there's the *|RSSITEM:TITLE|* which would need to be used in your template design (heading) and campaign settings (email subject) in MailChimp dashboard.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm dabbling with the idea of writing a plugin to add the align and padding automatically in RSS feeds so you don't have to add it in the text editor.
