Optin Revolution: WordPress Popup
[resolved] Configure for aweber- no instructions (14 posts)

    I am trying this again and thankfully I have no errors this time with the new version. One thing I am not sure about is setting it up with my aweber.
    I see that many of the fields are populated already in the plugin "Email Marketing Form" Am I supposed to paste my script from aweber into one of these fields? Which one?

    What do I put in "Listname"? Is this supposed to be my aweber listname? If yes then why does it have "optinrevolution" in it

    What is the "Meta Web Form ID" field? It currently has a number in it what is that?

    What is "Meta Message" it currently has a 1 in it

    Why is "Redirect" populated with "http://www.aweber.com/thankyou-coi.htm?m=audio"? This is not what I use for my confirmation link, If I leave it blank will it continue to use the default I have set up with aweber?

    What is "Meta Redirect Onlist"? What goes there?

    What is the "Pixel Tracking ID"?

    I know this is a lot of questions but it should all be explained on the form???

    When you create a form in aweber and look at the html you will see all the variable you have asked about all you need to do is take the values and put them in optin revolution.

    The naming is the same.

    listname: The name of the list the form will add subscribers to
    redirect: The valid URL of the page you'd like subscribers to be sent to once their information is successfully submitted to our servers.
    meta_adtracking: The ad tracking value you'd like assigned to subscribers who use this form (Optional)
    meta_message: The Follow Up message subscribers will first receive when signing up to the list. In almost all cases, this is set to "1".
    Meta Redirect Onlist: This can go any where you want, if the user is already on your list go to this url.

    The variables are explained here:
    https://help.aweber.com/entries/21771826-can-i-use-my-own-form

    Below is an example of an aweber form:

    <form method="post" action="http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl ">
    <input type="hidden" name="listname" value="[your listname here]" />
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.example.com/thankyou.htm" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="custom form" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="name,email" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="1" />
    <input type="text" name="name" value="" /> Name
    <input type="text" name="email" value="" /> Email
    <input type="text" name="custom Color" value="" /> Custom Field
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Subscribe" />
    </form>

    Replace the populated field and save.

    You will see the below when you generate a form in aweber if you want form stats in aweber then you need to add the value where you see Pixel Tracking ID Here.

    <div style="display: none;"><img src="http://forms.aweber.com/form/displays.htm?id=Pixel Tracking ID Here" alt="" /></div>

    For further information on the aweber variables recommend searching aweber.

    When your in aweber on the final step of creating a form you have 2 choices:
    1. Javascript
    2. Raw HTML Version

    Click the Raw HTML Version copy the code and paste it in a text editor like notepad then copy the values that you need into Optin Revolution.

    Hope that helps.

    OK I'm getting it, the only thing I am hung up on and don't understand is...

    Meta Redirect Onlist: This can go any where you want, if the user is already on your list go to this url.

    Anywhere I want? What is it for? Do I need it? Don't know what to do with this???

    Thanks

    Already mentioned this.

    Meta Redirect Onlist: This can go any where you want, if the user is already on your list go to this url.

    You don't need to use it, if a person enters an email address and that email address is already on your email list you can redirect them. henve the name Redirect Onlist, usually this is your thankyou page.

    Hi

    Just a quick question on Aweber
    Aweber has two licenses
    The old one... Unlimited lists and subscribers but NO API and Analytics

    The new one... Limited lists and sub... But API and Analytics!

    I have the "OLD" one at a flat rate :)
    But does this plugin need the API? Or can it work without? and still have Opt-In's? (Confirmed)

    It will work without the API. You enter your details.

    If you go to Aweber get the RAW HTML web form everything you need is in there. Just copy the values. Not that hard.

    Here's an example of the RAW HTML.

    <form method="post" class="af-form-wrapper" action="http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl"  >
    <div style="display: none;">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="171672097400" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="listname" value="listname" />
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://domian.com/thankyou.html" id="redirect_5b75273b400be57e0fga9d10d2bdsssd10e9d8" />
    
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="My_Web_Form" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="email" />
    
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_tooltip" value="" />
    </div>
    <div id="af-form-1716720974" class="af-form"><div id="af-header-1716720974" class="af-header"><div class="bodyText"><p> </p></div></div>
    <div id="af-body-1716720974"  class="af-body af-standards">
    <div class="af-element">
    <label class="previewLabel" for="awf_field-42559691">Email: </label>
    <div class="af-textWrap"><input class="text" id="awf_field-42559691" type="text" name="email" value="" tabindex="500"  />
    </div><div class="af-clear"></div>
    </div>
    <div class="af-element buttonContainer">
    <input name="submit" class="submit" type="submit" value="Submit" tabindex="501" />
    <div class="af-clear"></div>
    </div>
    </div>
    </div>
    <div style="display: none;"><img src="http://forms.aweber.com/form/displays.htm?id=jOyMbOxMDJzsLA==" alt="" /></div>
    </form>

    Here is the meta_web_form_id you need to get your own value this is an example don't copy this value!

    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="171672097400" />

    See easy :)
