NodeBB Mailchimps plugin not workig
NodeBB mailchimps is not working at all.
After restarting server and going to
plugin section, there is
mailchimps linkbut after clicking on it
Mailchimps integration to a forum is an important feature for my planned forum, what are your plans with this plugin?. Is there any update, fix coming ?
@marcos What are you planning to do with this plugin? afaik, it is used to email blast users.
Pinging @bentael, plugin creator.
I was thinking about a newsletter, and e.g. every month send users information about forum ( what changed, what will changed ) maybe with affiliate links as well.
Like to idea that it should directly submits newly registered NodeBB emails to MailChimp's account.
oh, i completely forgot about this plugin. this definelely not compatible with with 0.4.x.
I will make this support 0.4.x. Maybe end of this week. Till then, you can export your users to CSV in the NodeBB Admin panel, create a Mandrill.com free account, then you can use http://akhoury.github.io/pages/mandrill-blast/ to blast an email template to your users.
@bentael I am still working on my
nodebb forumand do not have real email addresses and I am more considering how can I utilize this plugin in the future. So, it is not so a big priority for me at this moment, but I can help with testing ....
just updated this plugin to support 0.4.x.
Give it a shot. use version
The "save" button doesn't work on mine when trying to save the option to send a welcome email. I updated to the latest version, and am running 0.4.3.
@zenkamal can you post error logs if there is any? both browser's console and
./nodebb logoutput? also, which version of the mailchimp are you using?
I'm using 0.2.0. Not sure if I'm doing this right, but typed in
./nodebb logand tried the plugin again, and there wasn't any output. Is browser console the same as dev mode? If so, nothing there either. Just no action when saving if the welcome email is checked.
i see, will attempt to reproduce tomorrow. too tired to read anything tonight.
And yes, the browser's console is the developer console, or dev mode
Ain't no thang, thanks for checking. I'm not 100% certain on how to get the various transactional emails to work, and whether mailchimp is needed if I already have mandrill. But I'd like to at least send myself a test welcome email.
The mailchimp plugin was originally written to sort of gather all users emails, as there was no way to export them, and even before the emailer system was implemented. Currently, I think sending a welcome email via MailChimp is sort of redundant, as the NodeBB process, if you have an emailer plugin installed (such as Mandrill or Mailgun etc.) will send a verification email to each user, welcoming them and asking them to verify their email (don't quote me on that, try it)
Also now, there is a way to export users' emails, using the Export CSV options in the NodeBB admin panel. and I am aware that the team have a feature on their plate to support email-blast to groups and users. (Till then, if you want to blast emails, you can export your users into CSV format and use this that uses your same mandrill key to blast emails.)
The Mandrill plugin (or any other emailer, there is a few) is required if your NodeBB app needs to send emails, such as Verification/Welcome emails, Daily Digest, Password resets, etc..., I find this one to be a necessity.
Bottom line, you do not really need this mailchimp plugin, installing the mandrill one should be sufficient, but I will address the issue you're seeing tomorrow.
track issue here please https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-mailchimp/issues/1
Thanks, that clears it up. I'll make some new test users and see if Mandrill welcomes them.
fixed for 0.6.x
It was actually just updated today. Check out the new version. I just updated it and it is working properly for me.
Does it work for v1.0.3 ??? Seams nonworking here!
Edit: It works but it does not att First and Lastname. It would also be nice with a test api button in the api!
