  1. Go to the WordPress admin area, click AFI > Settings.
  2. Select the AWeber tab.
  3. Click on the link Click here to get the code.
  4. You will be taken to the AWeber authorization page.
  5. Log in to your account if needed and click on the Allow Access button.

Create New Integration

After the authorization code is saved you can start creating new integration. Click on Add New under the AFI menu, New Integration page will appear.

Title

A default title will be auto-generated with an auto incremental number. You can rename it to something related to the task. It will help you to quickly recognize the correct one if multiple integrations are created.

Trigger

After selecting the form provider, all forms built under that will be fetched and auto-populated in the Form/Task Name dropdown. Select the form that you want to integrate.

Available contact lists will be auto-populated in the list drop-down. Select the desired one. You will find AWeber fields on the left side and form fields drop-down on the right. This form field drop-down will contain the field titles of the form you selected in the trigger area. Map Email, First Name, Last Name, etc., and other fields that you want. Skip the fields that are not needed.

Update Contact: By default, the plugin will only add new subscribers to a AWeber list. If the contact already exists before in the list and your want to update it, check this box.

Tags: Put single or multiple tags values (comma-separated).

Custom Fields: Use key=value pair to add a custom field. The key is the Custom Field Name you saved in the custom fields section of AWeber. You can set a fixed data as the value or map a form field. To add multiple custom fields, use multiple key=value pairs separated with double pipe (||).

Save Integration

Finally, click the Save Integration button and you are done. Now you can start testing.

Troubleshooting

After the integration is made, when users fill up the form and submit it, the plugin initiates the process of sending data to the configured platform. It also saves a log that includes what data it tried to send, and what it got in response from that platform. So if you find an integration is not working, your first task is to check the logs. Go to AFI > Log menu and check the recent logs.
