• Login to your AWeber account and goto "Sign Up Forms"
  • Create a signup form for your list with just an email field
  • Take note of your list name in AWeber, ie "default3052"

Modify the below code to fit your settings. Change your-list-name-goes-here to your list name in AWeber, http://www.example.com/thank-you/ is the redirect URL after they submit the form and value="email" should be changed if your email field on the AWeber form editor isn't called Email.

<form class="featured_form subscribe-form" action="http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="listname" value="your-list-name-goes-here" />
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.example.com/thank-you/" />
<input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="email" />
<input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="1" />
<input type="email" required="required" value="" placeholder="Enter your Email Address" class="email" id="email" name="email" />
<button type="submit" class="submit subscribe button btn-primary">
<span data-icon="" rel="" class="data-icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>
