Yesterday, we've released a new CMC version out into the wild. With this version we've introduced some of the requested features on our forum.
For example - if a user is logged into your website we can now pre-fill his email & name in the newsletter form leaving him with one single action to do - and that is click the subscribe button. Our module is now also able to determine who is subscribed and show him an option to unsubscribe or to update his subscription.
Apparently I've spent too much time with the Mandrill service. So much time, that I really love it, but people around me just don't get it. That is why before I introduce to your our new extension, I'll spent few minutes explaining what transactional emails are, why they matter and why Mandrill is so awesome!
So what is a transactional email? Basically it is an email sent to an individual based on an action. It could be:
- an action they took directly
- an action they were the target of
- even an inaction (such as a reminder mail telling your users to log on to your website)
For example - if you register on compojoom.com, first you'll get a mail asking you to confirm your registration. This mail is a transactional email (it was sent due to an action) & it is extremely important that it lands in your inbox. If it doesn't, then you cannot complete the registration process.
Happy new year to all of you!
We are happy to announce the first update for the year! "CMC - Mailchimp for Joomla" got a little better.

We've just released "CMC - Mailchimp for Joomla" 1.2 . This is a maintenance release that fixes all reported bugs since version 1.1 and it also ads support for Joomla 3.0 . In matter of fact CMC - looks awesome with Joomla 3.0! Here are few screenshots:
Don't wait! Go to the download section and grab the new release now!
In July we released the first version of our new(free as in a beer) extension CMC - Mailchimp for Joomla. Sofar we got awesome feedback and want to thank anyone who downloaded it and uses it. As it is normally the case - no software is perfect. Today we've released a small update that is making the extension hopefully a little more user friendly :)
One of the complaints that we had in the past was about the webhook key. It seemed that nobody was able to understand what to enter in that field. So in CMC 1.1 - you don't have to enter anything! You just need to copy the url and paste it in mailchimp. (in the background we generate a key and add it to your URL - yea!) This should bring you up to speed in no time!
We are very excited to announce that for the last month we've been working hard to bring the Mailchimp experience back to Joomla. Thanks to Mailchimp the new "CMC - Mailchimp® for Joomla!™ " extension is going to be absolutly free!
The current feature list of CMC includes:
