  2. Can I just say that I love y’all! I needed to tweak the way my blog posts go out to readers and the thought of figuring it out on my own was DAUNTING!!! So, I did what I’ve done since the day I foudn Restored316. I came to your blog and did a search. This tutorial is PERFECT! And I am so excited about my new campaign set to start in a few days. You make this stuff easy for a tech challenged girl like me! Thank you for EVERYTHING!

  3. Thanks for this great tutorial! I am in the process of setting up my MailChimp RSS subscriber emails, and I would like to include a featured image from each blog post to be pulled into each email. I see the image code I need to insert into my campaign template, but it appears I need to do something in WordPress as well (like inserting tags somewhere) to make sure MailChimp can view and pull the image. I\’m stuck on this step! Would you be able to advise what would be the best way to do this with my theme (Savory)?

      Mailchimp should pull the featured image from your WordPress post. You would just want to make sure that you are setting a featured image through WordPress each time. If that isn’t working, I might would contact MailChimp directly. 🙂

    2. Lori, did you figure this out? I am having the same issue with MailChimp. The RSS feed is not pulling my featured image for my RSS campaign.

      1. Hi Jen,

        Try this plugin and then make sure you add *|RSSITEM:IMAGE|* to your newsletter as well so it knows to pull your images in.

  4. Regarding the RSS Feed and Send Timing, if I choose to send an email let’s say on Sundays at 3:00pm, will it only show blogposted that were posted Sunday, or will it show all posts since the last Sunday?
