RSS to Email feature

0 Votes

One of our main use cases for CC is to create an Events email newsletter from the RSS feed of our Events Calendar. The old blog-to-email feature did this nicely, and we are continuing to use the old interface for now. If/when we have to double-enter everything for our email newsletter once the old interface is turned off, that would be a lot of extra work for us. Please bring this feature to the new interface before turning off the old one.


Hi there,

Actually this is a question as I've been searching high and low how to integrate my last blog posts.

You have addressed this issue here:

But on my interface I CANNOT find this option (see picture):screenshot bug.png



And there is nothing on Option Left Bar either... How can I have access to RSS feed insertion please?

I have a Bluehost Wordpress site and I'm a blogger and it would be amazing for my blogs to transfer over into the email page automatically. Thank you!

Seriously, plugins to automatically send emails out when you post a new blog article, why can constant contact not make this plugin???! We pay money to constant contact, why can't you develop this wordpress plugin that soooooooo many people are asking for?! I have seen questions about this dating back to 2011!!! Really?! In 8 years you can't figure out how to do this?!We don't want to create a new campaign every week when we post new blog articles! It's 2018...hello...automation! PLEASE!


I have made several posts before, this is my fourth year in a row asking CC to please bring us a wordpress blog post plugin!!! It was here, about five years ago, then CC deleted this plugin and has refused to bring it back for 4 years. Another provider has this FREE and has this plugin, create a new blog post on wordpress and it automatically sends an email to your contact list with the blog post link. For all the millions of dollars this platform collects in monthly fees why have users been asking for 4 years for this plugin??? Going into the CC platform and creating a new email and then pasting in the link to a new blog post is not a workaround...that is me manually doing what a plugin could do for me automatically...if anyone from CC support chimes in on this post and gives this as a suggestion you should be fired. It is 2020...wordpress is the number one blog and website platform...please make a new blog post plugin this year!!! PLEASE!


I am also looking for an automatic rss feed to email so as to turn my Wordpress events page into an email.

Currently on exactly for their RSS to Email function for both weekly and monthly newsletters; (am looking at as an alternative)


I'm surprised that CC doesn't have this feature.


Is there a reason why you do NOT have it?

It would be great if we could use Constant Contact to feed our Blog posts and at the same time have an individual template design for doing this which would be separate from our routine mailings.  Does anyone have a suggestion for this or is CC contemplating doing this in the future?


Thanks, Joe


So it is 2021 and I am assuming the automated RSS feed from Wordpress to email subscriber list is not going to happen.

Is it because it takes too much processing power on the Constant Contact servers to check RSS feeds?  

I have multiple clients that create daily content on their website that they want to be emailed to their subscriber list.

Is there a better way to do this without having to manually create an email every day?

I thought this was a basic function for a paid account.

CC not having this feature is absurd and puzzling. It is hard to imagine that they continue to ignore instituting a feature for Blg posts. It sure would be nice to get a detailed reply from CC.  Cheers, Joe .... the Glove Guru

Status changed to: Acknowledged

We're updating this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. With the introduction of our cross-device editor, we need to review what features could be possible to implement and would also work within our new editor. There are no current plans to include an RSS to email feature and we can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request. We hope this indicates some awareness that we have heard your feedback over the years and could be taken under consideration for a future release.


The Read More action block does not exactly replace any kind of RSS feature, but it allows you to link to a website, blog, or RSS feed.
