Wordpress plugin

Our Wordpress plugin makes it easy to insert ActiveCampaign forms into your posts and pages. It also adds the Site Tracking code to your Wordpress site.

How to install the Wordpress plugin:

Log into your Wordpress site.

Click “Plugins” in the sidebar.

Click “Add New:”

A list of plugins will load. Type “ActiveCampaign” into the search field and press enter (or return) on your keyboard to run the search:

Look for the plugin titled “ActiveCampaign by ActiveCampaign”

Click the “Install” button to add the plugin to your Wordpress installation.

Access the plugin's settings by placing your cursor over “Settings” in the sidebar and then clicking on ActiveCampaign:


Configuring the plug-in with your ActiveCampaign API:

When the plugin settings page loads, you'll be asked for your ActiveCampaign API URL and API key. To find this information, open a new tab (you'll need to be able to switch back and forth between your ActiveCampaign account and your Wordpress site) and log into your ActiveCampaign account.

Click the avatar in the top-right corner:

This will display a dropdown menu. Click “My Settings.”

Click “Developer” in the left-hand sidebar.

Under the API Access section heading, you'll see your API URL and key. Copy your API URL by clicking it and pressing Control + C on your keyboard. Paste the URL into your Wordpress site then do the same for your API key.

Click “Update Settings” in Wordpress:


Using the Wordpress plugin to insert forms:

With our Wordpress plugin, you can add a variety of forms to your posts and pages:

  • Inline forms - a form that is embedded into the content of the webpage.
  • Floating box forms - a small box that slides up from the bottom of the page.
  • Modal pop up forms - a box that appears on top of the webpage content and dims the background.
  • Floating bar forms - a strip that appears at the top or bottom of the page.

The floating box, modal, and floating bar forms are available on Small Business and Enterprise plans only.

After installing the ActiveCampaign plugin, create or edit a page or post.

In the toolbar you'll see the blue ActiveCampaign icon logo:

Place the cursor where you want the form to appear and click the ActiveCampaign logo.

A modal window will appear listing the forms you've created. Click the name of the form you'd like to insert. A shortcode will appear. When the post is previewed or published, the shortcode will be replaced with your ActiveCampaign form.

To edit the form, log back into your ActiveCampaign account and edit it there. The changes you make will be reflected in your forms that were placed through the Wordpress plugin — you don't need to replace or modify the code. 

Using the Wordpress plugin to add or remove Site Tracking code:

Installing the ActiveCampaign Wordpress plugin inserts your Site Tracking code into each page of your Wordpress site. You don't need to do anything to enable this feature because it is turned on by default.

If you'd like to disable this feature, uncheck the checkbox that appears in the “Site Tracking” section:

Then click “Update Settings.”
