Kudos on a fantastic product and some of the best customer service! I have been using Joomla (and Mambo before Joomla) for almost 6 years and this is by far the most needed component for Joomla. While supporting 12 websites for non-profits in Columbus, Ohio (one with over 700 pages), this is going to easily save me 3-4 hours a week! - Chris G.
Install, Configure and Test GetResponse Plugin for Joomla!
Step by Step Instructions
Please Note: The video above shows the older GetResponse UI, however the concepts are the same. GetResponse now requires payment before giving you the API key. Please be sure that your account is paid and active before attempting to configure.
coration: underline;">Before you start: All Intellispire Extensions require PHP5.x, and actually have code to detect which version of PHP is running on the server. If the code detects older versions of PHP, it will throw an error and die. If these instructions don't work, please verify which version of PHP you are running before contacting support.
Purchase the plug-in
After purchasing, you will receive a welcome email from Intellispire.
In that email, there will be a download link. Click this link to download the file to your hard drive. Make sure to remember where you save the file.
Once downloaded, login to the Joomla administrator for your website.
Once logged in to the Administrator, go to Extensions > Install/Uninstall.
Choose the file that you just saved to your hard drive. Upload and install it.
Now that you have installed the plugin, you will need to set up and configure it. Follow these easy instructions:
Go to Extensions > Plugin Manager and scroll to the GetResponse Notification Plugin. (Probably the last item on your list.)
Click on GetResponse Notification.
Once on that page, you will need to provide the data for Plugin Parameters -- Campaign and API Key -- which you will acquire from inside GetResponse.
On the left side, next to "enabled" click yes. Leave this page open.
Go to Account > Edit Settings, and scroll down to number 6 for the API Key.
Highlight and copy the API key. NOTE: Make sure you don't accidentally pick up spaces when you copy.
Now go back to the Plugin page in your Administrator that you left open in step 11 and paste the code into the API key field on the plugin parameters.
For the Campaign field just use the campaign name you used whenever you set it up in GetResponse. NOTE: Do not use @getresponse.com as part of your campaign name! i.e. Your campaign name would be My Campaign, NOT
Click on Save, (Located above Plugin Parameters.)
Double check if the system (GetResponse Notification) is enabled.
Now you will want to test to insure your registration system works as you expect it to.
Go to the page on your website where you placed the signup or registration form and create an account.
Now, check your email for the welcome letter you previously set up in GetResponse. Once you receive the welcome letter, (or notice of registration) your GetResponse plugin is setup and ready to recieve your signups and start building your list. NOTE: Sometimes, arrival of this message is almost instant. Sometimes it can take up to an hour. Be patient.
