Which post types are supported?
SPP supports any public post type. Go to SPP Groups -> Settings to select which post types you want to enable.
How do I create an SPP group?
Head to the SPP Groups menu option and create a group in the same way you would create any post or page within WordPress. Give the group a short description if you wish
How do I add a post to an SPP group?
When editing a post, if it is enabled for SPP grouping, the Publish Group option is added within the Publish meta box. The current group (or None) is displayed. Click edit to reveal a dropdown list of groups to which the post can be added. Select the group and click the OK button. The post is immediately added to the group
How do I connect to MailChimp?
Open the Settings page from within the SPP Groups menu. Enter your MailChimp API key in the MailChimp API Key field and click Save Settings. SPP will tell you if the connection is successful.
How do I schedule my MailChimp campaign to be sent when the SPP group’s posts are published?
After entering your MailChimp API key, click the SPP Groups menu item to reveal a list of your SPP groups. Click the list you want to add your campaign(s) to. All of your available MailChimp campaigns will be displayed within a table at the foot of the page. Locate the campaigns you want to send when this SPP groups posts are published and click the Add button. The campaign will move to the scheduled campaigns table and be removed from the available campaigns table.
How do I remove a scheduled MailChimp campaign from an SPP group
Follow the same steps for adding a campaign but instead of clicking Add on a campaign, click remove.
When do grouped posts get published?
When you click the Publish button for any post within a group, all other posts within the group will also be published. A handy confirmation is displayed to ensure you don’t do this by mistake
When do MailChimp campaigns get sent?
Once the posts within the SPP group have been published, any MailChimp campaigns you have scheduled to be sent, will be sent. Note that the time it takes to actually send the campaigns via email depends on the MailChimp queue times.
Which post statuses are supported?
Posts in the ‘auto-draft’, ‘draft’ or ‘pending’ status can be added to an SPP group
Why can’t I see all of my MailChimp campaigns?
Only campaigns that are ready to be sent (draft) are listed. Make sure your campaign is in **Draft*8 status.
I still can’t see my campaign
SPP caches results from MailChimp for performance. Due to this recent changes to campaigns may not immediately be visible. When editing the SPP group, click on the Force a refresh link to force SPP to update its cache immediately.
What happens if I delete an SPP group?
Not much. All posts within the group will have their association removed when the group is removed from trash (permanently deleted). Any MailChimp campaigns associated with the group will remain unsent.
How do I see which posts and MailChimp email campaigns are within a group?
Head to the SPP Groups menu option, click the name of the group and all posts within the group will be displayed.
Additionally, any posts or pages within a group will have the group specified within the post table.
