API & WordPress Web Form Plugin

Today, we’re proud to announce the release of AWeber’s API.

The API will allow you, as an AWeber user, to easily integrate other online products and services together to save time and create additional value for your business.

Read on for more information about the new API, what you should expect to see as an AWeber user, and an introduction to the first official app – a WordPress plugin!

What is an API?

While the term “API” is thrown around a lot in the online world, let’s take a moment to talk about what AWeber’s API is, and what it can do for you, the user.

API is short for “Application Programming Interface,” which may not sound terribly helpful, but describes the function of an API pretty well: it’s a tool for developers to use to make applications (apps) that work with AWeber. Many times, when you see something like an iPhone app that works with Facebook, you’re looking at something that a developer built using an API.

So how will most customers interact with the API? They won’t, at least not directly. What most customers will do is use apps that actual programmers create using the API, allowing users to access and use information from their AWeber accounts from almost anywhere online.

How will this affect my account?

The API will allow you to use apps to more easily integrate AWeber with other products and services online.

While we expect many applications to be produced by outside developers after the release of the API, we’ve prepared an initial offering, both to show off some of the things the API is capable of and also to provide a little boost to the level of integration we can provide to those customers that use the popular blogging software WordPress.

Introducing the AWeber Web Form Widget for WordPress

Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the very first app: the AWeber Web Form Widget for WordPress.

In a nutshell, it allows you to connect your WordPress blog with your AWeber account, letting you place AWeber forms on your self-hosted WordPress blog with just a few clicks, and without having to copy any code.

If you have a blog or site powered by WordPress, learn how to easily install a web form on your site.

How do I use other apps?

The great thing about AWeber’s API (and APIs in general) is you don’t need to work directly with the API itself to take advantage of the applications that developers create for it. When a developer creates an application, you can simply install the app that they designed, then just authorize the app (Facebook and Twitter fans, you’ll find the process familiar).

As far as AWeber is concerned, that’s it! As with the WordPress app we created, after that authentication, apps will continue to work for you even when you aren’t logged into your AWeber account.

The App Showcase

One immediate change you will see in your AWeber account is the “My Apps” link in the upper right corner of your account.

Once you connect apps to your account, you can remove their connections here, but the main attraction on this page is the App Showcase. For now, we’ll be highlighting apps created by the developers here at AWeber, but as independent apps are created, you may see the most popular and useful of those apps appear here as well.

That’s a wrap – feel free to comment or ask any questions you have about the new API below, or simply check out the knowledge base for more information.

Before we sign off though:

This Is Version One

If there are features that are not included in this first version of the API, please let us know! There are plans in place for expanded versions of the API in the future, aimed at improving your ability to integrate your AWeber account with other sites and services even further.

A Note to Developers

If you or someone you know is a developer, interested in creating an application to work with AWeber’s API, just visit AWeber Labs, the official home of and hub for the AWeber API. There, you’ll find instructions on how to create and register applications to work with AWeber.

    WOW I had just called today asking about an Aweber-API and was told there isn’t one available!

    Looks like it was just released after I got off the phone with the rep?

    Ahwell…

    Nice! Good stuff Aweber – I’ll be sure to check this out!

    Thank You for the great work.

    11/17/2010 4:35 pm
  2. S

    Someone please develop an Aweber/PayPal Subscription app!!!

    11/17/2010 4:37 pm
  3. Connie

    Super! Just went to use it on one of my pages, and I get all the way thru step 5 on the instructions page you set up, then it just says "Loading" with no end in sight. Any ideas?

    11/17/2010 8:11 pm
  4. Finally, Aweber released the WordPress plugin. This is the plugin I have been waiting for long long time, after seeing mailchimp introduce thier WordPress plugin.

    Thanks to the support team working hard to come out for us.

    Hooray!

    11/17/2010 9:00 pm
  5. Hello,

    Really, this is a great one from aweber.

    I had always wanted to integrate my aweber to my wp blog without doing all the work.

    Now, I will check this. Hope it will solve the problems of m any users.

    11/18/2010 5:22 am
  6. Great news, this will be a great addition to the system.

    11/18/2010 10:00 am
  7. Maia

    Will this be integrated somehow into blog broadcasts? I’m trying to set that up for my blog via AWeber and have found it pretty cumbersome. Would be nice to have an easier way to capture names for my email list and also send those folks blog broadcasts at the same time.

    11/18/2010 10:16 am
  8. JW

    Great news! We have been waiting for the API function and the wordpress function is an added bonus!

    is there going to be some directions on using the plugin with wordpress?

    thank you aweber

    11/18/2010 10:21 am
  9. This is great news, i have been waiting for this api and plugin for some time.

    11/18/2010 10:22 am
  10. Wes

    AWESOME! Can’t wait to try it out. This plug-in was definitely needed and should make it so much easier for people to set-up a subscribe form.

    11/18/2010 10:30 am
  11. Very cool! This is going to be very helpful…. I’m going to implement the WordPress widget right away.

    11/18/2010 10:31 am
  12. This is not only going to help me but my 1000s of affiliates since I let them use my autoresponder series.

    11/18/2010 10:52 am
  13. I just signed up but was disappointed to see it’s "read only" for now!?

    For us as, the most important thing would be to SUBSCRIBE people via the API, which seems not possible yet…

    Is that correct?i

    Any plans to release this soon?

    11/18/2010 10:57 am
  14. that’s great! it’s good to see companies like AWeber evolving to keep up with times.

    11/18/2010 11:11 am
  15. Sounds like a great app – looking forward to testing it out

    11/18/2010 11:11 am
  16. Excellent, and about time!

    Having written an AWeber enabled plugin for WordPress (for signing up at registration), it’s great to see you guys taking this on "officially."

    Now, I need API access to my subscriber data, so that I can integrate it with 3rd party financial tools.

    11/18/2010 11:12 am
  17. Paul

    It would be good if we could move subscribers from a ‘prospects’ email list to a ‘customers’ email list.

    Will this be implemented at some point?

    At the moment, I have to get them to fill in their email address again and then subscribe them to the ‘customers’ email list and unsubscribe them from the ‘prospects’ email list.

    It would be much slicker for the customer if this happened in the background via an API (I already have the customer’s permission to send them email, all I want to do is move them from one list to another).

    11/18/2010 11:15 am
  18. Excellent news! Great to see AWeber continuing to make it easier and easier for people to get involved in email marketing.

    11/18/2010 11:15 am
  19. I installed the Aweber wordpress widget in a site yesterday and completed authorization, but it is not functioning. It constantly displays the "loading:" message and never actually gets to displaying my choice of web forms. Now I read the following statement in this article.. "place AWeber forms on your WordPress.org site ." Does this mean this app works ONLY on wordpress dot org sites? My wordpess site is a self-hosted dot com.

    11/18/2010 11:15 am
  20. Great! This has come just in time for a project…
    Thanks Aweber.. this is a part of the reason why I’m confident in referring you!

    Cheers

    11/18/2010 11:17 am
  21. Great News !
    This plug-in was what I definitely needed and should make it so much easier for me to set-up a subscribe form with Aweber.
    Thanks a lot

    11/18/2010 11:18 am
  22. N

    I’ve been waiting for this. This will also be great for helping people who are new to Internet Marketing quickly and easily build themselves a list:)

    11/18/2010 11:26 am
  23. Wow, that sounds great!

    I have to try it.

    Best regards

    11/18/2010 11:27 am
  24. N

    Just tried out the new API, makes things so much easier, no need to write html. Thanks guys.

    11/18/2010 11:28 am
  25. FYI – as a WordPress developer and active Aweber user …. I’d suggest changing "Wordpress" to "WordPress" in the post and title … it’ll help you get more traction in the WP community.

    Glad to see you guys producing a plugin for WP!!!!

    11/18/2010 11:28 am
  26. This really a blessing and a great feature Thanks aWeber!!

    11/18/2010 11:29 am
  27. Brilliant idea! Any application that streamilines the process of creating sites is always welcome!

    11/18/2010 11:30 am
  28. Great, was just inquiring the other day about something like this and now here it is.

    thanks

    11/18/2010 11:32 am
  29. I too would like to see the integration with PayPal, but this is a great app! Bravo aweber.

    11/18/2010 11:32 am
  30. I am starting to use WordPress more and more – perfect timing for this. Love the idea!

    11/18/2010 11:34 am
  31. I

    Very cool interface.
    You have done it again.
    Aweber will still be the best in the years to come.
    Good luck.

    11/18/2010 11:35 am
  32. That’s great news. Email marketing with Aweber just got easier.
    Thanks Aweber!

    11/18/2010 11:35 am
  33. RM

    FINALLY! WOW – 2 great bits of news. I have been waiting for this plugin for a long time.

    THanks!

    11/18/2010 11:38 am
  34. This is fantastic!

    11/18/2010 11:41 am
  35. JT

    That’s great tool for AWeber’s API.

    Thanks for it! :-)

    11/18/2010 11:49 am
  36. OMG, I love you guys… FINALLY!

    Already integrated with you guys for our voice and text platform, Call Loop, but now this makes it a cakewalk…

    Awesome!

    11/18/2010 11:53 am
  37. Nice. I’ve been waiting for something like this from Aweber.

    I hope a lot of developers jump on and create great apps!

    11/18/2010 11:59 am
  38. Great news! Can’t wait to try it!!!

    11/18/2010 12:00 pm
  39. Excellent! I can think of many ways to use this API to create mobile apps for my next trade show.

    11/18/2010 12:11 pm
  40. jer

    So… it only works with WordPress sites hosted at WordPress.org?

    11/18/2010 12:18 pm
  41. awesome! been waiting for this for a lon time…

    11/18/2010 12:39 pm
  42. Fantastic…I love automation, especially when it doesn’t take 3 days to set up…lol. We need more of this forward thinking.

    11/18/2010 12:51 pm
  43. Rich

    Can’t get it to authenticate. I do a copy and paste of the authorization code and get and error message…Invalid authorization code. Anyone have an idea? I would love to use this.

    11/18/2010 1:19 pm
  44. Eugene

    This is a great feature! I’m sure many people will love it because most of them used WordPress nowadays.

    Keep it up!!

    11/18/2010 1:26 pm
  45. paul

    where is this plug in? I cant find it in settings and Im running the latest version of wordpress

    11/18/2010 1:37 pm
  46. Cool! Sounds like a great plugin for all my WP sites. I’ll definitely give this a go.

    11/18/2010 2:15 pm
  47. WOW, so many of us aspiring professional bloggers could really use this plugin on Word Press. I always felt that Aweber should have done a collabo on a solution & it has finally manifested.

    GREAT JOB & Initiative A!

    11/18/2010 2:24 pm
  48. This is absolutely the coolest thing since I first found aweber some years ago!

    11/18/2010 2:28 pm
  49. I was happy to see that I can download the plug-in to my own word-press blog/website on my hosting service.

    Looks good so far, I’ll start fiddling with it over thanksgiving.

    11/18/2010 2:28 pm
  50. At last it’s possible to use aweber wherever you want on wp. THX

    11/18/2010 2:36 pm
  51. Sweet! I was already using a third party plugin for aweber on my WP blogs, so glad to see WP stepping it up and creating the "official" plugin. Good Work Gents!

    11/18/2010 2:41 pm
  52. Hey everyone, thanks for the feedback! We’re very excited about getting the API up and rolling – keep the comments coming.

    @ Connie and others – We’re looking into the "forever loading" issue that some users seem to be experiencing. Our developers will sort that out as quickly as possible.

    @ Bonnie and jer – Sorry about my lack of clarity in the post. "WordPress.org" is the site where you can get the actual WordPress software that you install on your own domain – as long as you’ve got your own hosting for your site and you’ve installed WordPress normally, the app should work for you.

    The reason I specified "WordPress.org" in the post is due to "WordPress.com", which offers free hosting for a WordPress blog, but is much more restrictive in what you can and cannot place on the page (for one, they don’t allow you to include HTML web forms). Hopefully that clears up the confusion!

    @ Cory – How embarrassing. It seems that in my excitement, I forgot how to use the shift key. Fixed! Let’s keep that particular mistake between just you and I, okay?

    @ Everyone who likes the WordPress widget – Thanks again for the kind words, and we hope that this streamlines the WordPress/AWeber integration for you!

    11/18/2010 2:56 pm
  53. Thanks Aweber!

    You guys are constantly enhancing the value of service without increasing the cost :-)

    11/18/2010 3:15 pm
  54. Jay

    I actually get the same thing as Connie..

    "I get all the way thru step 5 on the instructions page you set up, then it just says "Loading" with no end in sight"

    I’ve tried this with a couple of different blogs and all end up doing the same thing.

    11/18/2010 3:51 pm
  55. It is not working on my IIS server running PHP and wordpress. It keeps saying loading in the widget.
    On another site it gives a server error.

    11/18/2010 4:15 pm
  56. Thank you for this great plugin. I have a problem on my wordpress (org, not com) website. I installed the Aweber wordpress widget in the site today and completed authorization, but it is not functioning. It constantly displays the "loading:" message and never actually gets to displaying my choice of web forms.
    Please support, have a great day!

    11/18/2010 4:34 pm
  57. That is great will give that a go on new blog today.

    11/18/2010 4:35 pm
  58. Sounds great but there may be a bug or two – I loaded the WP Plug in – but when I try to authorize access Aweber keeps denying my username and password! Not that I don’t know it very well – but just in case I went to Aweber and signed in using the very username/password (3 separate times!) with no problem. Went bac to my website and tried again – and again – was denied access.

    Now I’m going to have to submit a request to support – hopefully it is something that will be easily resolved.

    11/18/2010 4:49 pm
  59. Thanks AWeber for making it so much easier to use your great service on our blogs. I thought this day would never come.

    Now I don’t have to depend on others for Plug in support. I’m confident AWeber will be here for a long time to come.

    11/18/2010 5:26 pm
  60. I can just imagine the number of feature requests within version 1.
    Wordpress plugin, going to be great for client!

    Nice and thank you!

    11/18/2010 6:49 pm
  61. Wow Aweber!

    You’re forever outdoing yourselves, adding goodies… ever increasing the value of your services… and all withOUT increasing your monthly rates… waaaahOOOOOO!

    Thank YOU!

    11/18/2010 6:53 pm
  62. Great I cant wait to try it!!

    11/18/2010 7:30 pm
  63. With this application there’s even LESS "reasons" why not to capture website vistor’s date, offer them great value as a follow-up, an boost one’s business results!

    Thank you for a time-saving addition to your autoresponder service!

    11/18/2010 8:17 pm
  64. Finally, an EASY way to put an Aweber FORM on my WordPress Professional Blog. I installed the plug-in, but as others have indicated, when trying to add the widget, I get the "Loading…" message, and that’s all.

    11/18/2010 8:26 pm
  65. Maia

    FYI, I’m also experiencing the "forever loading" problem. Will look forward to hearing when that bug is worked out.

    11/18/2010 10:10 pm
  66. This is a great idea. However, as are other new users, after installation and setup, I just see "loading…" and it has not been able to show my lists or forms.
    I am hoping for a quick fix so that I can add some forms to my blogs.

    11/19/2010 12:37 am
  67. At last the aweber wp plugin, its gonna make things so much easier for wp users. Now to test it out

    11/19/2010 1:47 am
  68. Great news! Thanks guys, looking forward to seeing the developments with this.

    11/19/2010 2:01 am
  69. Great move, this makes Aweber an even more attractive email messaging platform. I’m pretty sure that this is going to go down like a homesick mole.

    11/19/2010 2:08 am
  70. Its fantastic that aweber is keeping up with the technology and integration of it with other platforms. As time goes i would like to see more plugins for aweber.

    Well done on getting started in the right direction.

    11/19/2010 2:15 am
  71. Hi Aweber,
    You done it again!! This API opens up the world of opportunity!

    It’s a huge step – I’m sure we will now see lot’s of creative ways to keep Aweber in front of the competitors :-)

    Keep up the good work.

    11/19/2010 3:51 am
  72. This is great but I am going to test it out first in my sandbox before I use it at my site! Waiting for those bugs to be caught !!

    11/19/2010 4:28 am
  73. Finally no hasseling around with html codes and java scripts.

    11/19/2010 5:49 am
  74. Hey all,

    In case you missed Nick’s comment above (for some reason it wasn’t highlighted), we’re aware of the "loading" issue with the WordPress plugin and are working to get it resolved. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Looking forward to seeing what other new apps the community creates!

    11/19/2010 10:14 am | Follow me on Twitter
  75. Update: the issue has been fixed and we’ve released an updated version of the WordPress app.

    You may need to upgrade your version of WordPress for the plugin to work properly for you – of course, it’s also a good idea to keep your version up-to-date anyway, so this is just another good reason to be doing that. :-)

    11/19/2010 3:36 pm | Follow me on Twitter
  76. When I tried to automatically upgrade the plugin from the WP plugin page, the program was unable to find the new version.

    By going to the plugin site, though, I was able to download and install the new 1.01 version and it worked fine.

    Thanks for fixing this (mostly).

    11/19/2010 6:02 pm
  77. WordPress api looks good. Question? will this work on a website where wordpress has been installed?

    11/19/2010 9:10 pm
  78. That’s great news. I previously selected iContact because of their wordpress plugin. Glad that aweber has its own now.

    11/19/2010 10:22 pm
  79. Thanks Aweber, you continue to help me streamline my business!
    Thank you for the support and listening to the Aweber community.

    11/20/2010 12:03 pm
  80. This is awesome, but when will more applications be available?

    I’ve always wanted an App or a function that Added subscribers to a new/different list once they were through with an autoresponder series – of a particular list.

    Does anyone know if anything like this is possible, or is in the making in any way shape or form?

    11/20/2010 10:46 pm
  81. Thanks for developing this app with API. It will be easier and faster now to create a webform without copying the codes for different list.

    11/21/2010 1:44 pm
  82. This sounds like a great idea. More and more people are using wp as their choice for CM. This will help out. I hope that more apps become available soon!

    Aweber Rocks!

    11/21/2010 9:05 pm
  83. A PayPal app would be awesome!

    11/21/2010 9:36 pm
  84. Speaking of the two suggestions so far to develop an Aweber/PayPal subscription app, I’ve noticed in keyword research that others are looking for such an app, too.

    Hint, hint. ;-)

    11/21/2010 10:11 pm
  85. Correction: Not looking for such an app, but such a feature :)

    11/21/2010 10:12 pm
  86. Bnaya

    It seems that it is not possible to add new subscribers with the API.
    That will be very good feature for systems that want to add their users into aWeber account and then send them emails using aWeber.
    You can limit it to be opt-in and a confirmation email will be sent.
    Now the only way to subscribe to the list is by submit manually a web form. That’s good only for newsletters and not for real email lists management system.
    Or I miss something?
    That is very powerful tool.

    11/22/2010 9:45 am
  87. @Bnaya:

    Exactly what I asked for earlier in this thread too.

    we have the same problem.

    Could someone answer this?

    Thanbk you.

    11/22/2010 10:53 am
  88. Ken,

    Our team will be creating more apps over time, but the nice thing about an API is that anyone with the technical ability can create an app.

    We’ve been taking suggestions via Twitter re: what should we integrate with:

    http://twitter.com/aweber/status/5650774818291712

    so if you have suggestions for software/services we should integrate with, please share them (either via Twitter or here in the comments)!

    Marty,

    We’ll be evaluating how we integrate with PayPal and other shopping carts, and seeing if we can do so more smoothly via the API. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Bnaya,

    For now, the API only permits data to be read from the account. We’ll be adding the ability to add subscribers (as well as many other functions that require write data to your AWeber account) in the future.

    11/22/2010 10:57 am | Follow me on Twitter
  89. Great post I look forward to seeing what other apps may come about. API looks like the way forward.

    11/22/2010 6:50 pm
  90. Hello,

    This is my first comment ;) .

    Very good ! It’s exactly what I asked (and what i need).

    Thanks Aweber.

    11/23/2010 9:19 am
  91. Dorel

    Justin, could you tell us when write features will be added to the API?
    I am guessing here, but I think a lot of aweber users are waiting for this.

    Thank you

    11/23/2010 12:41 pm
  92. Ken

    It was stated that it works on wordpress.org blog. What about a wordpress blog hosted on another sever?

    11/23/2010 6:35 pm
  93. Yes, its really a good wordpress plugin for a blogger like me. Always looking for plugins that ease my work.

    Thanks again for great article and plugin.

    11/24/2010 8:49 am
  94. I like apps, but don’t quite get this one. A video that demonstrates its use would be helpful. I assume this is also for wordpress blogs that are self hosted… right?

    11/27/2010 12:33 pm
  95. This is a very useful tool, glad they added it.

    Beats the old text box way :)

    12/3/2010 8:22 am
  96. Can wait to try-it-out!

    12/3/2010 9:59 am
  97. Great work, my fellow affiliate marketers and members will benefit greatly

    12/6/2010 11:16 am
  98. Thanks for finally implementing a wordpress plug-in. I’ve been waiting on this for a long time.

  99. FANTASTIC PLUGIN !!

    I installed it on our website and within less than 5 min the webform was loaded AND formatted properly.

    TOTALLY SEAMLESS —- One of the best integrations using API that we have come across in years. We do webdesign work and frankly you guys are off to an excellent start. You are lightyears ahead of your competition !!!

  101. It’s about time – and way to go!

    After witnessing so much custom work being done with (Aweber Inside) so to speak… this was getting to be an accident waiting to happen.

    Thanks so much for putting it on the project list for 2010.

    Mission accomplished!

    12/10/2010 11:24 pm
  102. i would love to see samples of this incorporated on websites, to see what endusers see. Implementers – post your web pages!:-)

  108. I am incredibly impressed time and time again with the product that Aweber continues to evolve into. I look forward to integrating this new plugin into all the Word Press blogs that we create from this point forward for all of our clients. Thanks again!!!

    Life is great!

    12/31/2010 10:28 pm

    I have been wondering why Aweber didn’t have such aWP plugin. Now we have it! Hooray!

    Have been using AWeber for quite a while. Glad to have this feature for my newer blogs.

    1/8/2011 7:35 am
  114. I think you guys just made my life a heck of a lot easier. Let me try it out and see if it works

    1/8/2011 9:40 am
  115. At last ! looks like Aweber have finally created THE Plugin -will try out this out on my fitness health blog- thanks…

    1/10/2011 5:04 pm
  116. Joseph Dew

    I have not started using it, but reading through all the great comments by these people, I believe I shall be trying it.

    1/19/2011 4:58 am
  117. Finally!! Can’t wait to install this plugin on my blog

    1/22/2011 11:30 pm
  118. This was sorely needed as there are plenty of things that take too much time and rob you of doing more important thing. This Aweber API is a big step in the right direction.

    This is great!

    2/5/2011 9:11 am
  119. Peter

    @marquita herald: I had the same problem (denied access) and I know, what it is: Try to change upper/lower case letters in your Username. While the usual aweber login is not case sensitive, the API login is. Much luck to you and to everybody with the same problem.

    2/6/2011 6:00 pm
  120. Great plugin… It make life so easy

    2/7/2011 5:28 pm

    You go Aweber!

    About time. :-)

    Now I’ve got to learn another application to go along with the 347 I’ve exploded my head with.

    Bottom Line though is this will save me tons of time.

    Thanks!

    2/11/2011 4:18 pm
  122. Brilliant Idea love it will download it now.. Thanks :-)

    2/11/2011 6:02 pm
  123. Hooray, thank you very much!

    This is a nudge in the right direction for Aweber. I’ve installed the plugin and got a php error telling me something is wrong on line 74.

    It also seems the plugin is very limited as web forms can only be placed in the widget. Doing the work I do, we normally use our web forms on the page itself just under the content. Is there anyway that Aweber can upgrade the plugin to make it more flexible?

    It would be great to have a more flexible plugin, which can save time in installing web forms into my static and blog sites.

    2/22/2011 2:05 am
  125. OMG! I just wanted to comment and say thanks for the WP Plugin. I have been away from AW and IM for that matter, (Vacationing from work in general.), and I must say that I was tickled to death when I saw that the WP plugin is now available!

    2/26/2011 11:14 am
  126. I haven’t had the time to check this out yet but I will shortly.

    However, I put up a new blog a few months back and used a WordPress Plugin that intergrated with Aweber , which worked well. I wonder if there’s any relation… (don’t recall the name off hand).

    Anyways, I appreciate the efforts you make Aweber with constantly improving upon the products you provide us.

    Keep up the good work!

    3/3/2011 5:19 am
  127. very helpful API for WP. It will save me some time.

    3/6/2011 5:54 am
  128. I sure hope someone will help me get it right so it don”t coast me a arm &a leg before I get it!!

    3/10/2011 12:54 pm
  129. Hi,
    The Aweber plugin is brilliant…just put it into the widget and good to go. The only thing I have noticed is that one of my lists is not showing up in the plugin. (All the others are). Would this be because I haven’t finished setting up my list completely in Aweber? I created the list name and created the first email, confirmation email etc for that specific list but it’s not showing up. Anyone else had this happen yet? Thanks :)

    3/17/2011 4:09 am
  130. Just to say, (one of) my lists (the one that’s not showing up in the widget) is 84% complete. But I haven’t created a webform for it yet… Do I actually need to? Because the potential subscriber is going to sign up straight from my blog, right? Just so I’m clear… Thanks :)

    3/17/2011 4:31 am
  131. Thanks to everyone for your comments!

    Martin – You do need to create a web form in your list before the plugin will be able to add that form to your WordPress blog. The plugin just places the form on your blog for you, so it needs the form to be created in your AWeber account first. Enjoy!

    3/17/2011 1:00 pm
  132. This is an exciting development. I would also love to see an app that lets us link sign ups on pligg sites to aweber lists. Would that be possible?

    3/18/2011 12:13 pm
  133. Sam

    Hey, This is what I need, I’ll put to all my blog and of course will save my precious time.

    thanks buddy

    4/3/2011 2:52 am
  134. Thank you very much, just what I need!

    4/4/2011 3:54 pm
  135. Gracias por el plug ins esta buenisimo
    mis blog estan mejor ubicados

    que herramienta mas util
    Ya lo puse en todos mis blog

    Gracias

    4/12/2011 10:44 am
  136. I think, its nice…it could be save my time. as newbie I still explore this system..thanks

    4/30/2011 9:44 pm
  137. Thank you – maybe I’ve had my blinkers on, but this is the first I’ve heard about the WordPress Plugin. Looking forward to integrating it into my blog.

    5/3/2011 5:10 pm
  138. I already using a form from aweber to my blog whit a simple text widget. it’s as simple as copying the HTML code to a text widget. Having a dedicated aweber widget facilitate a lot the process.

    Regards

    Thanks!- its one of the most exciting features.

    5/20/2011 12:12 am
  140. Dear aweber, Would you please write a description of what this API does and does not do.

    You don’t need this plugin to add a subscription slot to wordpress.

    What would help most people would be to integrate aweber with this list of people who subscribe as wordpess posters.

    This API does not appear to do that. Is that correct? Someone has created an wordpress plugin that does do that…. but that plugin is no longer supported.

    Aweber…. why do you not go to the author of that plugin and take over support of it?

    See:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/aweber-wordpress-plugin/

    5/29/2011 7:07 am
  141. This is what I get – This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document you requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser does not understand how to supply the credentials required.

    But I put in the right username and password and as a matter of fact can access my aweber account.

    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    6/5/2011 8:58 am
  142. Hi Issa,

    One of our team members will get in touch with you so we can look at the issue in detail and get you connected to the app.

    Is AWeber Web Form broken today?

    It worked fine for a while. Now my widget says:

    “AWeber Web Form authentication failed. Please verify the SETTINGS to continue to use AWeber Web Form.”

    I click on the Settings:

    The plugin gives a FATAL ERROR:
    —————————————
    AWeber Web Form Options:

    Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘AWeberOAuthException’ with message ‘UnauthorizedError: Consumer key is invalid. https://labs.aweber.com/docs/troubleshooting#unauthorized‘ in……………….
    ————————————————————————-

    … and a whole stack of similar garbage WITHOUT any way to reconnect it back to my AWeber account.

    What do I do now?

    Thanks

    8/1/2011 10:37 pm
  145. Allen Kerry

    Fixed that one by completely deleting the plugin (turning off/on didn’t work) and reinstalling from scratch.

    8/2/2011 12:21 pm
  146. marke

    It would be nice if the wordpress plugin were kept up to date so it works with new versions of wordpress. I couldn’t get the plugin to work with the latest version of wordpress.

    8/30/2011 5:36 pm
  147. Nick

    This would be pretty good IF Aweber forms were not so heavy on code. The bloated forms have a significant impact on my load time if I have more than one on the page. I am on a dedicated server so it is not a server issue.

    You guys should implement slimmed down forms which we can style in our own css files. When I say slimmed I mean NO CSS. Just a simple div or html5 form with no styling.

    10/20/2011 8:12 am
  148. Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!

    11/7/2011 9:58 pm
  149. sounds great, will try out this plugin for sure!

    11/14/2011 11:12 pm

    Hi there,

    I am getting this fatal error when I activate this plugin and make the connection to my list

    Subscribe By Commenting
    Allow readers to subscribe to your mailing list when they register or leave a comment

    Fatal error: Cannot access protected property AWeberAPI::$_collectionMap in /home/rswong/public_html/wp-content/plugins/aweber-web-form-widget/php/aweber_api/aweber_entry.php on line 331

    This error message only come below that section

    Can anyone give me pointer on this.

    I sent support message but the support team does not really know what happens here. I have the latest WP as well.

    2/25/2012 12:31 pm
  154. cannot get plugin to work. After completing and pasting in the authorisation code, it still thinks I don’t have authorisation. I click on the link to go to the settings page but the ‘options’/settings page is blank… there are no fields, nothing.

    It would be great if it worked.

    3/27/2012 8:38 am
  155. Hi SEAM,

    Sorry to hear you were having trouble with the plugin. I’ve tested it and it seems to work fine for me; if you’re still having trouble, get in touch with details so we can help you out. Thanks!

  156. Good job! This plugin works for me now after several hours of working aweber to function. This eased my difficulty..

    Many Thanks!

    5/31/2012 2:22 am
  157. Hello Guys!
    Well, as usual it looks as if you have developed yet another quality resource for your subscribers!
    I have struggled for quite sometime trying to learn (self taught) Internet Marketing, and email listbuilding as well!
    Although I have not really even used AWeber for the autoresponder which is the main purpose, or so I thought?
    Actually AWeber’s tutorials and easy to use dashboard have made it relatively easy for me to learn many aspects of email marketing, which in my humble opinion is probably the most important element for all on & offline marketers to possess!
    I am pleased to tell you that after many months of delay I have finally begun my listbuilding and email campaigns!

    People squabble about the cost of various things online, and I am by no stretch of the imagination, “WEALTHY”!

    However, I can honestly say that my AWeber account is the one most important account and responsibility that I have on or offline!

    I have been approached by many affiliates as well as other companies directly with offers for big discounts and promises of quicker lists by way of “NO DOUBLE OPT-IN” and all I can say is “NO THANKS!”

    I go to bed at night in peace, and my unsubscribe rate is, well when someone does unsubscribe I’ll let you know? That’s right, I have a very small list, but so far they have not gone anywhere!

    Thanks AWeber, for helping me to learn the honest and ethical way of doing email marketing, and for showing me how to treat others online in general.

    You taught me that by the way you have always treated me! With honesty and integrity!

    6/29/2012 1:27 pm
  158. Great work!

    very useful plugin

    thank you aweber :)
