I know that you guys are a company that likes to think outside the box, but right now you're not supporting one of the most widely used CMS' out there. I noticed that in your integration features, you offer your own support and plugins/services for all of the CMS' except for Wordpress. Is there a reason for this?

You have a team of great developers that I'm positive could crack at least a beta plugin out in 1 day, and then test over a few more days to get one working and published. The current Wordpress plugin that's offered hasn't been supported for over a year, and there's still no sign that you are currently thinking of doing this.

You have competition - MailChimp is one of the biggest, that offer seemless and easy integration into Wordpress (which I'm sure, many of your customers use). Some of us folks don't have developers working for us. Personally, I design my site, but when it comes to straight PHP coding and learning how to use an API, I feel lost.

I'd love to hear your answers, thanks.

Hi folks, I'm the Product Manager here for our partnerships and integrations, and I wanted to provide some good news here. We are currently working with the developer that built the Emma Wordpress plugin to update it and get it in much better shape. John Housholder over AhSo Designs is leading that work, and in addition to updating it, we're going to be adding a few features to make it better. We'll also be continuing to maintain this plug-in and keep it updated moving forward. 

New features you'll see include:
  • Signups from the plugin will now be able to trigger our automation
  • We'll have vertical and horizontal orientations for your signup fields
  • You'll have more control over the look of the form 
  • You'll have more control over the messages that are seen when someone signs up

This should all be done and ready by the middle of January. We'll post here when it's live, of course.

Hi folks, 

Just a quick update because I know I said that this would be done in the middle of January, and here it is almost February without an update. This is still moving along quite nicely, and it truly won't be much longer! What we hope is the final version was delivered today, so we're going to do some testing on it to be sure it meets the requirements, and then we'll be updating the Emma Wordpress listing. 

We're a little later than expected because we found some small things along the way that we wanted to get right in this version before it was released. I hope you'll forgive us taking a couple of more weeks to get this as right as we possibly can. I'll continue to update here as I have more information, but feel free to ask me any questions you might have in the meantime. 

Thanks for your patience!

Hey, all! I'm really excited to let you know that our WordPress integration is now live. :) You can view our help doc here in the Resource Center and the plugin page on WordPress's website.
