Yep :slightly_smiling:

Will let you know. Probably will be done by this evening.

#13

Great, thanks. I want to profile three cities from three continents…but for some reason they keep jumping out of alignment. I haven’t added the content for the third city yet.

#14

Have you also copied all the new sign ups from the wordpress into the list - as described here

#15

Hey Sharon,

got caught up with something else today. Have noted it for tomorrow.

Have taken a look at the alignment problems, but I am not sure I know what you mean. Could you take a screenshot to show the problem? I’ll take another look tomorrow and try to correct if you still need some help tomorrow.

#16

Hey @Lars2i,

Yep, I added the subscribers to the Mailchimp list yesterday.

Do you mind if I change tomorrow the newsletter subscription form on the Wordpress to Mailchimp’s?

#17

Nope. I do not mind :slight_smile:

Please just make a note about that in the Newsletter Solution Documentation.

Cool :slightly_smiling:

One more thing @Lars2i, can we get an email for the newsletter like news@oscedays.org?

Will be much more profesh than if we send it from sharon’s or my email.

Once set whoever has access to the email creation will have to verify the email for Mailchimp just by confirming it once we set it up.

#19

Maybe we can use the same account that is used for Twitter

Which one is the one we use for Twitter?

Could you also let me know if we have an official adress? This is required by law and for the moment we have an address in Berlin, Netherlands :slightly_smiling:

Update: @sharmarval, I just branded the signup process to our colors and change the newsletter form in the homepage.

I thought I could do more and tweek some more messaging during the newsletter onboarding, but I realized we need to upgrade to the paying option to do it.

Let me know how it goes with the rest of the newsletter.

Things pending:

  • official address of the foundation to be added
  • an oscedays.org email to send the newsletter
#21

Hi, I don’t know how to set up news@oscedays.org

Probably we need to ask @pierreozoux about that. But I am not sure how fast we will be able to set it up.

#22

done.

For the next time, you need to login to https://mail.indie.host with contact@oscedays.org email.

Cheers!

#23

Cool, thanks @pierreozoux

Sorry to bother again,but could you please give me the verification code Mailchimp sent us? You can find it in the news@oscedays.org inbox.

Once we got this done, we’ll be all set for the newsletter.

Thanks again!

@Lars2i, do we have an official adress for the foundation?

#24

Hey, the content for the newsletter is all finished now.

We need to send it asap, otherwise the discount code for ouishare will run out @cameralibre

Is the email stuff sorted out now? Does someone who is more familiar with Mailchimp want to send it out? @Lars2i @Jaime

#25

Hey,

Still waiting on the verification Mailchimp code. Can anyone pm me the access to the news@oscedays.org account so I can verify it? @pierreozoux @Lars2i

@Lars2i can you also let me know the official adress of the foundation? I haven’t been able to find it in the statuses.

@sharmarval Will send it as soon as I got these two things :wink:

Mmh. as said, there is now news@oscedays.org - never has been. And I am not sure, if @pierreozoux can set it up. Can you Pierre?

The official address of the foundation is Janoschs home address. I do not know it and he is on the road.

Till then you can give out mine.

#27

I guess he created it. I just need access to it now, or to the login to https://mail.indie.host with contact@oscedays.org email.

Will just use your address for now until we get something better (won’t add your name, so people won’t harass your house bell :wink: )
