Active Campaign Newsletters WordPress Plugin

Welcome to the Active Campaign Newsletters WordPress plugin.  You are just minutes away from creating, testing and sending email campaigns through your Active Campaign account without ever having to leave your WordPress Admin.  Our out-of-the-box features include the ability to populate a multi-email-reader-compatible template with content picked from your WordPress posts branded with your logo and even optionally including your own in-house ads.

Have your own templates?  Want to re-run previous Campaigns or source your content from 3rd parties?  No problem.  Our plugin also provides an html scraper function that can grab the source of any publicly published template.  We not only import the content but also provide the ability to include updated Google tracking codes.

FAQ:

-where do I find the numeric ids of my Active Campaign Lists?  Answer: Visit your Active Campaign Admin, Contacts > Lists and hover over or click on any List to see its listid in the url

-Why is my mailing not scheduling?  Answer: If your account is new, Active Campaign requires you to create and send a minimum of 10 Campaigns before one can be scheduled via api.  After doing so, the system can take several days to recognize this.  Commons reasons for this issue in accounts not meeting the former case include derelict payment, spam complaints and going over the contractual Contacts limit.
