How to customize PL Signup Plugin beyond its current capabilities

Recommended Posts

Mike Becker



So the PL Signup Up Plugin is cool, but how do we get it to do more than it does now...for instance.


Right now, the plugin:

  1. takes emails,
  2. sends them to Mailchimp
  3. and than shows success message.

How do we get it to:

  1. take emails and possibly first name,
  2. send to Mailchimp and/or Aweber and/or Infusionsoft,
  3. and redirect to a different URL vs the success message (MOST IMPORTANT ONE).

Thanks ahead,



Mike Becker

Hi Mike,


Unfortunately, to achieve what you want to achieve isn't possible out of the box with PL Signup and would require customisation. This isn't something we can assist with, but you're more than welcome to do this customisation yourself.

However, if you want an advanced signup form, I would highly recommend you check out GravityForms, it has a number of add-ons that will allow you to do what you mention above and then some.



Please search our forums, before posting!

      Of all the Items that is on Pagelines Shortcode, the Signup on the Settings page is the biggest miss, can anybody tell me how i can add the Signup Shortcode on a link my footer so that users can subscribe to my blog directly or better still to create the shortcode myself if thats possible, but instead of adding a new button somewhere down, i think its better to add the Signup shortcode to an existing link, Thanks

      At one point developing my site I added some test text. It says: "Testing a title." and "Testing a text block." I believe that I then deleted the section or the text. It no longer appears in my  Chrome browser, but it still is appearing below every post in Safari and Firefox. Since I cannot see it anywhere in Chrome, I cannot delete this text or section. 
      Here is a sample post url:

      Hi, I recently updated wordpress and plugins and now changes simply do not register at all in the DMS interface. At first I can type in a textbox field, but I don't see that affecting the type on my page. Then I publish, see no effect. After that I can no longer even type in a text box interface field. 
      Wordpress interface works normally, it's just the DMS that isn't functioning.
      I'm setting up a dev site to troubleshoot this by disabling plugins, or reverting to a saved backup, etc. But I thought before I go to all the trouble someone might have a tip for me.
      Thanks in advance!
