AWeber Drupal Module Adds Opt-In Forms to Your Drupal Site
Web forms are a crucial part of any email marketing campaign. Without a form, you couldn’t build your mailing list in the first place.
In most cases, creating and installing a web form is simplicity itself. However, when using a Content Management System (CMS), you may want to work with plugins or modules specifically designed for that platform rather than editing raw HTML.
We’ve got you covered, Drupal fans! Today, we’re proud to announce the AWeber Web Form module for Drupal, using the AWeber API to add signup forms to your Drupal site. Keep reading to get the module running on your site in just a few steps.

Step By Step Instructions
Note that you will need to have already created your list and a web form on that list before using the Drupal module to add that form to your Drupal site. Also note that this module is made for use with Drupal 7, so you may want to check your version number if you’re having problems.
- Download the module here.
- You can unzip and install the module manually by uploading the folder to the /sites/all/modules/ directory in your Drupal install (consult Drupal’s help for more information about installing contributed modules).

Here, click “AWeber Drupal” under the Content Authoring section.
To authorize the connection between your Drupal site and your AWeber account, click the link below the Authorization Key box.
You’ll be taken to a new page where we’ll prompt you enter your AWeber login information and click Allow Access.
Copy the code from the box that appears -
- and paste it into the Authorization Key box back in Drupal, then hit “Authorize.”
Then, just select the list you’d like subscribers to be added to.
And finally, choose the web form that you would like to add to your Drupal site and hit “Save”.
Finally, to actually have the form appear, click the Structure button at the top of the page.
Here, click “Blocks”.
