Aweber Setup & Debugging

Setup

Accessing Settings

Inbound Pro Users

If you are using our inbound pro component then you will find your extension settings by following these breadcrumbs:

wp-admin->Inbound Now->Settings->Extension Settings.

There you will find your Aweber setup settings.

Non Inbound Pro / Stand Alone Plugin Users

If you are not using our all in one component then you probably have one of our free plugins installed from the WordPress repository (landing pages, calls to action, or leads).

Head into any of Inbound Now plugin’s settings area and find the ‘Extensions’ tab. If you are using Landing Pages plugin then head into wp-admin->Landing Pages->Settings, and find the ‘Extensions’ tab. There you should find your Aweber setup data. You’ll need the following:

  • aweber api id
  • aweber consumer key
  • aweber consumer secret

 

Aweber API ID

The first thing we need is our App ID. Singup at https://labs.aweber.com/ and create your first application. Your App ID can be found on your MyApps page and is right next to your consumer keys. The App ID is used when creating public applications. Be sure to set the app website to the website URL you are installing from.

 

Aweber Consumer Key & Secret

These keys can be found at https://labs.aweber.com/apps

 

Authorizing

After saving your credentials you will be prompted to allow Aweber Access to your website. If you want to connect a different account in the future there will be an option to either reset oauth or disconnect the current account.

 

Connecting Aweber to a form

 

Routing submissions into an Aweber list

Once the settings are in place and your Aweber account authorized an option will appear in your Inbound Form setup  area to connect a form to Aweber. It will also ask which Aweber list you would like to have subscriber information inputted into.

 

Mapping fields

For forms to know which fields contain what we need to map them. A success connection to Aweber depends on it.

Forms not sending data

Map your fields

Make sure you are always thorough with your Inbound Form’s creation by mapping fields to their appropriate location. This tells our systems what kind of data the field represents and is required by the Aweber Extension to operate

Check permalink settings

Currently our plugins require that permalinks are not using the default permalink structure shipped with WordPress. Use post name or something different and this often will solve Aweber communication issues. We are investigating support for numeric permalinks:
