OK! Now we're getting somewhere.

I've run the cron job manually a couple of times & it times out (there are just under 11,000 accounts on my forum) so i never get any feedback in the Cron Log for Total Added, Total Updated or Total Error.

Thanks for this it will help me a lot once ive properly got it configured.

I installed it fine, set it up in the options.

I then set up the merge tags fine, all ok so far.

Now, I already have 400 of the 700 members subscribed and I 'presume' that if i set this up properly itll somehow automatically add the additional 300 members....

So I set it up to run a scheduled task (it was already set up to run 1st of the month) by changing it to the next few minutes... it runs and 'seems' to have a back log.

The problem I have now is, its sending ALL my members insane amounts of emails from mailchimp. One members reports to have over 40, a couple of others are saying 15... why is this?

I have now deleted the lists and renewed it to with a new csv so that itll have ALL the members... if a new member signs up now do they automatically get added to the list I have put in the settings?

I signed up with a fake user and the user wasnt added to this list.... but members are still being added from the scheduled task even though I stopped it, seems to be a backlog........

Im stuck and confused and members are getting very annoyed

Matt

you are testing it with fake user, but keep it in mind that user will not be added in your mailchimp list untill he/she will accept subscription using link given in email ( email which is sent by mailchimp itself)

Hi,

the Subscribe Forcefully option does not work. It always works as No.
Any suggestions?

Please help, it is pretty confusing to me how it works.
I integrated it as described above, forcefully=off.
Have radio buttons (yes and no) on profile and registration page.

OK, but what happend is this: When everything was setup right (I guessed) I ran the Scheduled task for vBulletinMailChimp. Took quite some time (1000 members) and ended in an MySQL error. But guessed that most of the mails we're sent. Pretty soon I got some MailChimp-Yippeee mails for new signups.

But I wondered what would happen when the scheduled task would run the next time. So half an hour later, I manually ran it again. And OOPS, I noticed that it starting to send out all (??) mails again. That's ofcourse not what I want, and especially not what my forummembers want
The sched.task is turned off now.

What can I expect that this plugin does?
And what happens with new forum registrations when the sched.task is turned off?

Hope for some extra info on this promising plugin ...
Thanks in advance!
