Plone-integration for MailChimp RSS-campaigns.

Project description


This package makes it easy to designate content into one or more named feeds, suitable for creating automated newsletter content.

It extends the base content schema for any Archetypes-based content which lets editors easily manage which feeds (if any) that a given item should be listed under.

Designed for the MailChimp internet service, the package also includes a subscription portlet that optionally lists a subset of interest groups.


Tested on Plone 4.0 - 4.2

Getting started

  1. First, install the product using Plone’s add-on control panel.

    This register a control panel, and adds a number of required indexes and columns to the catalog.

  2. Visit the “MailChimp RSS” control panel to define one or more feeds.

  3. Enable one or more feeds for your content by clicking “Edit” and selecting from the “Feeds” option.


  1. Configure a MailChimp API-key (also available in the control panel).

  2. Add one or more subscription portlets.

Feed content

In the out of the box configuration, only the default dublin core metadata will be returned in RSS feeds.

If a view rss-summary is registered for the item, the template will call this view and include it as the RSS summary field (marked as CDATA). The string should be HTML.


The product is currently localized into:
