Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • MailPoet
  • Gravity Forms

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of MailPoet Gravity Forms Add-On, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “MailPoet Gravity Forms Add-On” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found my plugin extension you can view details about it such as the the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading my plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

Setting up the Plugin

When you edit your form or your creating a new form, under “Standard Fields” select the MailPoet button. A new field will be added to your form. Now edit that field to setup.

Fill in the required field id numbers for First Name, Last Name and Email address.

If you wish to enable a multi-list selection then enable it and select the lists your users can then select.

If you want just a simple single checkbox then make sure that you have selected the lists from the settings page under “Gravity Forms -> Settings -> MailPoet”

Once you are happy with the settings, press “Save Form”. If you haven’t added the form to a post/page yet then insert the form to that post/page.

That’s it.

Upgrading

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Reviews

Works and this allows users to pick their subscription list

This is a great plugin. Do not get this mixed up with another plugin called “Gravity Forms Mail Poet Add-on”. That other plugin only adds users to a predefined list and does not allow users to pick and choose their list.

But this plugin does and it works great with Gravity Forms. With this plugin, you can let your users pick and choose what they want to subscribe to and it’s all tied in with your MailPoet settings.

Thanks for a creating this wonderful plugin!
