Where are the settings?

The plugin is so simple and easy to use that there isn’t even a settings page. The only setting is on/off for each individual page. You’ll find this setting under the “Publish” box on the “edit page” screen.

How do I integrate with AWeber/GetReponse/MailChimp/etc?

While composing your email in your email system. Add the first name personalization variable to the URL of your WP Get Personal Page.





Constant Contact
Please use the “Insert” toolbox they give you to insert the contact’s first name. Look for “Contact details” and then select “First name”. It will look like this after you insert it:
“ Name”

Note: if you just type in “First Name” or (Contact First Name) it won’t work – you need to insert it using the toolbox.

Note about AWeber: they don’t support click tracking for this kind of link. If you need click tracking please use the following workaround:
It’s not as pretty but it works!
