Follow these easy instructions:

  1. Inside your Joomla! administrator, go to Extensions > Plugin Manager and scroll to the iContact Notification Plugin. (Probably the last item on your list, you may need navigate to the next page.)
  2. Click on the iContact Notification Plugin plugin.

  4. Once on that page, provide the data for Plugin which you acquired from inside your iContact form.

Testing the Plugin

You will want to test to insure your registration system works as you expect it to.

  1. Go to the standard Joomla! registration page on your website and create an account.
  2. After confirming your registration with Joomla! (if necessary), login to your iContact account to verify that the new user has been added to the correct email list.
  3. Your iContact Plugin is setup and ready to receive your signups and start building your list.

Module Setup

The iContact Module displays an iContact sign-up box anywhere a module can be displayed on your website, including within content. You can have as many modules as you like, each configured for different lists.

In standard mode, the form is placed within your web page, when someone clicks "submit", the browser takes them to iContact, then returns them to whatever page you have specified.

In Advanced mode, all this happens in a internal window called an "iframe". The advantage here is that your prospect never leaves your site and what they are doing is not interrupted.

In order to create a subscription form on your website, you must activate the iContact module.

  1. Inside your Joomla! administrator, access the Module Manager (Joomla -> Extensions | Module Manager)
  2. Find the appropriate Sign Up form (you may have to page through the list of modules), click it to configure
  3. On the left side see "Enabled" and select yes.
  4. Choose the appropriate template position and pages on which to display the module. (See Joomla! Docs)
  5. Customize the "Teaser Text" for your company
  6. In the "Redirect" field, you can add the link to the page where your customer will be redirected after signup. This is usually a "Thank You" page.
  7. If you would prefer to use the iContact Javascript Form, enter the url to the Automatic Signup Form.
  8. Otherwise, enter the values you extracted from the form.
  9. The rest of the fields can be left as default. Use these, for example, if you would like to say "First Name", instead of Name, change it here.
  10. Click on Save or Apply.

Advanced Mode

In order to take advantage of advanced (iframe) mode, simply open up the Advanced Parameters tab, and select "Yes", run in iFrame. Then place the text you would like your users to see on return (HTML allowed). Note, in this case, the redirect paramater is ignored.

You have full control over the displayed form. Simply alter the iframe height and width if necessary (for advanced mode), or the complete form template in Layout Template. We suggest you leave the Layout Template alone unless you have special requirements and know exactly what you are doing.

  1. For Advanced mode, click on Advanced Parameters dropdown on the right side.
  2. Click the radio button "Yes, Run in Iframe".
  3. Next customize the text. Leave all other settings as they were for standard mode. Redirect is ignored advanced mode.
  4. Double check the left side of the page to make sure your form is enabled and that you have positioned it to your liking.
  5. You have full control over the look of your form by editing the HTML in the "Layout Template". Be careful not to remove the variable code in the HTML.
  6. Click the Save or Apply button

Testing the Module

Now you will want to test all the way through to ensure your signup system works as you expect it to.
  • Go to the page on your website where you placed the form and signup for your offer.
  • Make sure you are re-directed to the page you expect.
  • Check your email to see that you received the message you expect.
  • Check your iContact account to make sure the name is added to your list.
  • In advanced mode, expect that after pressing the "subscribe" button, your form will be replaced by the Thank You text. You will not leave that page.
