How to use your own MailChimp Template
This is a feature we used to offer and still support for those users that had it enabled. We recommend users today to use our new editor.
Using a custom MailChimp template to theme your newsletter is simple with Goodbits:
1 - Edit your MailChimp Template
In MailChimp find "Saved Templates" under "Campaigns", and add the following merge tags to your template:
*|GOODBITS_CONTENT|*(required) — The current issue's links
*|GOODBITS_HEADER|*(optional) — Can be set in the Goodbits Editor
*|GOODBITS_SUBHEADER|*(optional) — Can be set in the Goodbits Editor
*|GOODBITS_DESCRIPTION|*(optional) — Can be set in the Goodbits Editor
*|GOODBITS_FOOTER|*(optional) — Can be set in the Goodbits Editor
*|GOODBITS_TITLE|*(optional) — This is the Newsletter's Name
*|GOODBITS_ISSUE_NUMBER|*(optional) — The numerical issue # (eg. 21)
2 - Set your MailChimp template in your Goodbits Newsletter's "Template" settings
You will need to enter the URL from MailChimp's template editor. It will look similar to: https://us3.admin.mailchimp.com/templates/edit?id=101053
