How do I create a campaign in MailChimp?

Creating a campaign is slightly more complicated, but here is the code:

// Instantiate our class
$wpMailChimpFramework = wpMailChimpFramework::getInstance();

$ccParams = array();
$ccParams['type'] = 'regular';

$ccParams['options']['list_id'] = 'cc55x5555xs';
$ccParams['options']['subject'] = 'Test Newsletter Subject';
$ccParams['options']['from_email'] = 'example@example.com';
$ccParams['options']['from_name'] = 'Xavisys - Repurposed Marketing';

$ccParams['options']['tracking']=array('opens' => true, 'html_clicks' => true, 'text_clicks' => false);

$ccParams['options']['authenticate'] = true;
$ccParams['options']['analytics'] = array('google'=>'my_google_analytics_key');
$ccParams['options']['title'] = 'Test Newsletter Title';

$ccParams['content'] = array(
    'html'=>'some pretty html <a href="http://xavisys.com">Xavisys</a> content *|UNSUB|* message',
    'text' => 'text http://xavisys.com text text *|UNSUB|*'
);
/*
// OR use a template
$ccParams['content'] = array(
    'html_main'=>'some pretty html content',
    'html_sidecolumn' => 'this goes in a side column',
    'html_header' => 'this gets placed in the header',
    'html_footer' => 'the footer with an *|UNSUB|* message',
    'text' => 'text content text content *|UNSUB|*'
);
$ccParams['options']['template_id'] = "1";
*/

// Create the Campaign and var_dump so we can see the result
$campaign = $wpMailChimpFramework->campaignCreate($ccParams);
var_dump($campaign);

Here is what you can expect to see:

array(1) {
  ["id"]=>
  string(10) "xxx0x078xx"
}
How do I send a test campaign?

To test a campaign without actually sending it (each campaign can only be sent once), use this code:

// Instantiate our class
$wpMailChimpFramework = wpMailChimpFramework::getInstance();

$campaignTestParam = array(
    'cid'           => 'xxx0x078xx',
    'test_emails'   => array(
        'example@example.com',
        'example2@example.com',
    )
);

// Send the test campaign and var_dump so we can see the result
$campaign = $wpMailChimpFramework->campaignSendTest($campaignTestParam);
var_dump($campaign);

Here is what you can expect to see:
