Bricked my blog
By , for WP 4.2.1

The latest update of this plugin bricked my blog.. couldn't even log in to uninstall it. Had to delete the aweber folder manually from my webhost before my blog was recovered but not after an hour of panic and not knowing what to do.

You had been warned.

badly coded - better plugins out there
By ,

buggy and very few features. you're better off to search for a good newsletter / optin plugin that supports Aweber than to use this.

Works in FF and GC, not IE
By , for WP 3.9.1

After a few problems with getting the form to display in any browser, I discovered that I had selected the Aweber list I wanted, but had overlooked selecting the form for that list!

Now displays and works perfectly in Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, but it is not being displayed in Internet Explorer browser v11 running on Win7 64 bit. I have tried this from 3 separate computers all running Win7 64, 2 of the home premium and the other running pro.

I have tried lowering all the security measures on IE to the point that the system keeps generating warnings and still it will not display in IE.

Lots of people use IE, so this is a major hurdle. I have contacted Aweber Labs but have not heard back as yet. If anything positive comes of it I will post that here.

I suspect that people reporting problems with the form not displaying are either overlooking the list and/or form selection in the widget, or are attempting to view it in the IE browser!

UPDATE: heard back from AWeber, said to remove this code from head section:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Works perfectly in all browsers now, couldn't be more pleased!

I've change my rating to 5 stars... AWeber Labs (NOT AWeber for the plugin) responded quickly and resolved my issue!

Works exactly as advertised its working on my blog
By , for WP 3.9.1

I use Aweber to get customers to sign up for Free Computer Network checkup.
Before I used the html code that Aweber makes available once you create the form.
Now I have updated the form on Aweber, activated the widget on my wordpress site, and you know what it just worked.

Ok I know some reviewers have asked why can't you edit it in wordpress.
You are connecting it to Aweber, so I expect that I need to make changes in Aweber and after all once its done how often will you make changes. So it's not an issue for me.

Thanks Aweber

Pretty useless as I can't even connect WP and Aweber...disappointed :(

Might Be Asking For The Stars And The Moon, But Here Goes
By , for WP 3.9

Is there any way to create the forms directly in WordPress without having to go back to AWeber every time I need a form. Maybe some type of quick form set up for current lists? Or an iFrame of Aweber back office?

If this is just not possible, sorry for bringing it up, but very little point to flipping between different forms, unless you can create them in WordPress as well.

Not much happened
By , for WP 3.8.1

Got the API key, selected a list, dragged the widget to the sidebar, selected a list again, saved, and then... Nothing happened, no widget. I did notice a checkbox below my comments, and a line that says "Sign up to our list", but the default css looks bad. I think I will delete and make my own form using Gravity Forms.

Doesnt work on 3.8
By , for WP 3.8

Nothing happened after I did all required steps.

Works fine, gets extra opt-ins

Does exactly what it is supposed to. When someone goes to submit a comment on a post, they can tick the box to subscribe, if they do, it processes it perfectly.

Only one form allowed.

Complete waste of time. Only one form allowed and it doesn't even display the form... at all... it's like it's not even there.
