How to trim MailChimp email for posting on WordPress?

I’m trying to (1) retrieve the HTML output from a new MailChimp campaign email, (2) use Zapier Formatter to clean up that HTML so that only the body of the email is left (i.e. I want to delete all the header and footer of the email), and (3) post the result to my WordPress site.

I’ve got #1 and #3 working, but in #2 I can’t figure out how to use Formatter to do what I want. Is this even possible without getting into JavaScript? Better yet, is there a smarter way to do this?

Thanks!

Daniel

Hey there, @postcarbon! Thanks for reaching out and outlining this! 
Do you mind sharing some screenshots of your Formatter setup and the subsequent output of it, with any personal details obscured? That may help the Community troubleshoot with ya. 🤗

Thanks for the quick reply! I ended up going with a simpler option, though, so now I don’t need to troubleshoot this.
