The purpose of this guide is to explain how to link the Contact Form 7 form tool in WordPress into LianaMailer.
First, you need to install the Contact Form 7 in your WordPress installation to use Liana's plugins for system integration.
Linking LianaMailer to WordPress
After logging in to your WordPress installation with your admin credentials, select the 'Plugins' option from the side menu, and then click on the 'Add New' option at the top.
Type 'lianamailer contact' into the search field. Click on 'Install Now' next to the desired plugin.
After a successful installation, click on the 'Activate' button to activate the plugin.
Open the 'LianaMailer' option from the left-hand menu, then click on 'Contact Form 7'. This will bring up the following view:
Enter the API details you received from Liana's contact person into the fields provided, which can vary depending on your installation:
- LianaMailer API UserID (number)
- LianaMailer API Secret key (combination of numbers and letters)
- LianaMailer API URL (complete address)
- LianaMailer API Realm (for example, EUR)
Click 'Save Changes' to save the changes you made.
If the information is correct, you will receive a notification after saving that the connection is OK.
If the information is incorrect, please contact your contact person.
After installing the form plugin, you need to set up the list join separately for each form. Next, go to the 'Contact' option from the menu and select one of the forms.
Select the 'LianaMailer integration' tab (1) below the form, and activate the sending of data to LianaMailer (2).
After enabling LianaMailer integration, select the subscription page that you want to use from LianaMailer. Also select the following:
- Site: choose the subscription page for the form
- Mailing list: select the mailing list to which users will be added when they submit the form.
- Consent: select the consent option for the user who is joining the email list.
Click the 'Save' button to save your selections
Note that all information, such as mailing lists, comes from the selected subscription page. If the desired list is not displayed on the page, it must be added to the LianaMailer's subscription page first!
Once the settings and subscription page have been selected, you can also use the subscriber's fields found in LianaMailer as part of the form. These fields can be found on the 'Form' tab with the prefix 'LM'
Note that form requires LM_email field to be added like below.
