So far I have:
  1. Signed up for MailChimp
  2. Signed up for Mandrill
  3. Installed CMandrill and Configured it
  4. Created a template in MailChimp
  5. Sent it to Mandrill
  6. Tested the template and received what I expected (a blank, styled template)
  7. Triggered the sending of emails from Joomla!

I am received nice, styled, but EMPTY emails.

I think what I need to do is insert a merge tag or some sort of shortcode into the template in Mandrill, so Mandrill knows where to put the information that CMandrill is sending it.

If that's correct, what do I need?

I have read some of the MailChimp documentation which seems to suggest that "mc:edit="main"" is what is required. I have pasted that into my template, and tested it again, and it just says mc:edit="main".

I reckon I'm close - can someone help me across the line? I'll be forever grateful!
