Campaigns not importing at all
I’m stuck and I’m not sure why – no newsletters imported – I think maybe I don’t understand what the Permalink is meant to be set to or something stupid like that?
When I click “import” using Mailchimp username and a generated API, the plugin just gets stuck saying “Talking to the Chimp…” (even if I leave it overnight – there are only about 125 newsletters in total). I have tried using my Mailchimp username as well as the “User” name on the API page (one has a space, one doesn’t) – same result for both. Just gets stuck.
If I register an app in MailChimp and then use the Client ID and “API” it provides (as suggested by another user) instead of “Username” and API it says “Talking to the Chimp…” for about 5 seconds and then it goes away – but then when I check the Newsletter tab, there’s nothing there.
In essence, these are the exact steps I’m taking and I have no idea why it’s not working for me, but seems like it’s working for others:
Step 1: Deactivate plugin and uninstall.
Step 2: Reinstall plugin and Activate.
Step 3: Click “MailChimp Campaigns” settings.
Step 4: Enter username and API Key from https://us15.admin.mailchimp.com/account/api/ – OR enter “Registered App” data from https://us15.admin.mailchimp.com/account/oauth2/
Step 5: Click “Save settings”
Step 6: Go to Permalinks settings page and leave as-is (/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/), then click “Save Changes”
Step 7: Go back to MailChimp Campaigns Settings and click “Import” (Using the API it gets stuck on “Talking to the Chimp…” – and – using “Registered App” settings it says “Talking to the Chimp…” for 5 seconds then disappears)
Step 8: Go to “Newsletter” menu item and it’s empty?
