Usage Documentation

The Emma for WordPress plugin allows you to quickly and easily add a signup form for your Emma audience as a widget or a shortcode on your WordPress 3.0 or higher site.

After the plugin is installed, the setup page will guide you through entering your Emma API login information, selecting your group, setting up the fields for your form, customizing the form and adding the widget to your site.

  1. You can generate your API keys in your account by clicking the tools icon at the top-right and selecting Settings & billing. You'll see a tab for API key. Click "Generate key" to receive a public API key, private API key and account ID. If you have an agency account, go to Menu, choose Accounts, click the downward-pointing arrow to the right of the sub-account whose keys you want and select to jump into that account's settings. Scroll down to the API key section.

  2. Go to your WordPress account, select Plugins from the lefthand column and click Settings below Emma for WordPress. Copy your account ID, public API key and private API key into the corresponding fields on the plugin's Account Information tab. This allows it to connect your WordPress site to your Emma account. You can select here whether to send a confirmation email. An optional field lets you assign all subscribers to a specific group in your Emma account.

  3. Go to the Form Setup tab. Here, you'll choose which fields to display, set your form's width, customize the placeholder messages within each field, customize the messages that displays under the form after it has been submitted and select whether or not to send a confirmation email, then specify the subject and message of the confirmation email. Click Save.

  4. Go to the Form Customization tab. This is where you will select how you would like the form to be displayed on your site (vertical or horizontal), customize the styles of your form fields (including border width, border color, border type, text color and background color), customize the styles of your form’s submit button (including width, text color, background color, border width, border color and border type) and customize the styles of your form's submit button when users hover on it. Click Save.

  5. Go to the Advanced Settings tab. This is where you'll add tracking code to each signup form submission. Paste your code into the box, and click Save.
