How to automatically subscribe the user to an AWeber list when the user registers in the phpBB forum. Step by step Guide.
After Integrating AWeber with vBulletin let’s integrate AWeber with phpBB.
So here we go.
Create the Custom Parser
We now need to create a parser in AWeber to parse data from phpBB. Setup the following Custom Parser in AWeber.
- Trigger rule should be your webmasters from an address in the phpBB forum which is the test condition for adding the subscriber.
- Rule 1 to get an email address from the sent email headers.
- Rule 2 to get the username of the phpBB forum as a name in Aweber.
Upload the Notification Plug-in
Create a new administrator in your forum with listname @ aweber.com as an admin email. This will be a dummy admin because phpBB does not have any functionality to notify some email address about the new user registration and so you need to install this plug-in as well. You can download directly from my archive.
After you have successfully installed the plug-in test it to see that you as an admin get the notification of newly registered users and this will also mean that your AWeber account starts getting the notification.
Remember that this plug-in will notify all forum administrators and so if you have quite a few administrator’s you may need to edit the code of the plug-in for $admin_ary to notify only the newly created admin for AWeber.
All done and I hope this is helpful to all who prefer to use AWeber with phpBB. Also, check out the AWeber integration with Joomla.
