[Resolved] [Plugin: wpMandrill] How to set different merge tags "values" for each recipient?

  • spearhead

    @johncrusade

    When sending a single template to multiple recipients, how to set different values for merge tags?

    For example there is a merge tag “FNAME” for the first name of the recipient. How do I pass different the first name values for each recipient?

    I already have merge tags working, when sending an email to a single recipient.

    Hello,

    You’ll need to use the $merge_vars parameters of the wpMandrill:mail function. This is its schema:

    static function mail( $to, $subject, $html, $headers = '', $attachments = array(),
    	                        $tags = array(),
    	                        $from_name = '',
    	                        $from_email = '',
    	                        $template_name = '',
    	                        $track_opens = true,
    	                        $track_clicks = true,
    	                        $url_strip_qs = false,
    	                        $merge = true,
    	                        $global_merge_vars = array(),
    	                        $merge_vars = array(),
    	                        $google_analytics_domains = array(),
    	                        $google_analytics_campaign = array(),
    	                        $meta_data = array()
    
    	                     )

    Hey Will,

    I’m looking to setup a email template that will be used for WordPress Notifications that are now sent through wpMandrill.

    Do you have any sample templates that are setup and working properly with wpMandrill?
