How do I link my WordPress environment?

At MailBlue, we are big advocates of the website software WordPress, because of its user-friendliness and the possibilities the software offers. In this article, you will learn how to connect both software.

In order to easily utilise all the features that WordPress offers with MailBlue, a special WordPress plugin has been developed to establish the connection between both software. By activating and correctly installing this plugin in your WordPress environment, you can transfer website activities such as site tracking and form subscriptions to your MailBlue account. Only a few steps are required for this.

  1. In your WordPress environment, go to 'Plugins' and click on 'Add New'. From this screen, search for the plugin named 'ActiveCampaign – Forms, Site Tracking, Live Chat'. You can install and then activate it.
  2. Once activated, you can start establishing the connection. For this, go to 'Settings' > 'ActiveCampaign' in your WordPress environment. In the screen that appears, you will be asked for your API details. In this article, you can find where to locate these in your MailBlue account. Once you have filled these in, click on 'Connect'.

If the connection is successful, you will notice that more settings become available in the plugin. Here you will also see the heading 'Subscription Forms'. In this section, all created MailBlue forms are displayed by default. If you want to integrate a form on your website, you can select it here.

Another option that becomes available is 'Install Code'. In this section, you can activate site tracking among other things. This way, you can easily monitor all website activities of your contacts. You can read more about this topic in this article. If you choose to enable or disable this, don't forget to save these changes by clicking on 'Update Settings'.

After establishing the connection, the ActiveCampaign logo will be displayed when creating a new page or a new blog article. By clicking on it, you can easily insert a subscription form on that specific page.
