    I recently upgraded to the latest version of BPS. However because of this, I am unable to use MailChimp’s RSS Campaign feature. I have verified that this has something to do with the secure version of the .htaccess file in the WordPress root directory.

    Please let me know if there is something I can change in the .htaccess file that will allow cURL requests from other services.

    it was a minute ago. I switched it over in order to allow MailChimp access to it. Its now in secure mode.

    I can still see your Feed without any problems.

    Have you tried different Browsers?
    Have you cleared your cache?
    Are you using any Browser add-ons or extensions that could be causing the problem?

    Is the problem occurring on the frontend of your website? ie the actual Feed or is the problem occuring on the backend? ie your Dashboard?

    The problem is a mailchimp problem. What happens is that when BPS is in secure mode, a proper RSS driven campaign can’t be setup because MailChimp reports the RSS feed as an invalid URL

    I understand the basics and now i would need the specific details about what the problem is. I have tested MailChimp several times and have never found a problem or conflict with BPS and MailChimp versions. What i have found is that query strings used in Feed Posts are blocked because dangerous coding characters are being used in the query strings. These are isolated occurrences that are fixed by removing the dangerous coding characters from the Feed Posts.

    Another possibility is that a new MailChimp version has been released since the last version that i checked. getting real tired of rechecking this plugin over and over, but will do it one more time.

    You accidentally posted the link to BPS. I need to the link to the MailChimp plugin. Thanks

    There is no mailchimp plugin that does this. mailchimp natively has the ability to creatE an RSS driven campaign based on the feed.

    Where is the RSS driven campaign created?

    What is the Query that is sent to your Feed?

    Inside the MailChimp interface

    Ok getting warmer. Now i just need the most important thing – the actual Query.
