AutoChimp
New categories not showing up in "Mail Campaigns from Posts" dropdown (7 posts)

    After installing, activating, and adding the API key to AutoChimp, I decided to create a new category to use for newsletters. The problem is, the configuration page is only showing the old categories and not the the new one I created. Is there a way to reset the options, or clear the cache for the plugin? That seems like it might do the trick.

    Thanks!

    Make a new post to your new category, and publish it. After that, you will see the new category at autochimp setting :)

    You can also change the function call so it shows empty cats:

    - file '88-autochimp-settings.php', line 168, change to:

    $category_args = array( 'orderby' => 'name', 'order' => 'ASC', 'hide_empty' => 0 );

    Hi! I am a newbie. I am trying to change the code so it updates PAGES not POSTS. I use pages for new email campaigns and posts for my company blog so would like for AutoChimp to send auto campaigns for PAGES. Please let me know if you can help. THANK YOU!

    Hello, what you want to do is definitely possible, you just need to learn about the WordPress platform and how to program it. You need to switch out the action handler for pages instead of posts. Have a look here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference (see the publish_post and publish_page actions).

    Mail Campaigns from Pages is what I am looking for as well. Basic idea would be to add extra functionality into a child theme so can still install AutoChimp updates. Would want to add action handler for pages rather switch for posts.
