Design and code a RSS Driven MailChimp template; Pam wanted a more professionally designed MailChimp template consistent with the appearance of her blog. Being a RSS driven template the content is imported from her WordPress blog, however what made this template challenging was her use of the “Click to Tweet” plugin as she wanted to preserve the formatting of the plugin’s output in her Emails.
Adding to the challenge was the fact MailChimp doesn’t apply inline CSS to content imported from RSS feeds. So to ensure the formatting was correct I had to not only modify the Click to Tweet plugin, but also create a custom RSS feed which applied inline CSS to the content to ensure the hypertext remained the correct colour.
