About SendInBlue

SendInBlue is a GDPR compliant alternative to MailChimp from Europe (Germany).

Configuring

In order to use the plugin you need to get the API key from your SendInBlue account.

  1. In the OctoberCMS back-end go to the System / Settings page and click the SendInBlue link.
  2. Paste the API key in the SendInBlue API key field.

Creating the Signup form

You can put the SendInBlue signup form on any front-end page. Add the SendInBlue Signup Form component to a page or layout. Click the added component and paste your SendInBlue list identifier in the SendInBlue List ID field.

If you want to use the double opt-in flow (as required due to GDPR in Europe) enable Double Opt-in and provide the Double Opt-in template ID and either a CMS page or a static page to redirect to after the douple opt-in mail link was clicked by a subscriber.

Now close the Inspector and save the page.

The simplest way to add the signup form is to use the component's default partial and the {% component %} tag. Add it to a page or layout where you want to display the form:

{% component 'mailSignup' %}

If the default partial is not suitable for your website, replace the component tag with custom code, for example:

<form
    id="subscribe-form"
    data-request="mailSignup::onSignup"
    data-request-update="'mailSignup::result': '#subscribe-form'"
>
    <input type="text" name="email" placeholder="Newsletter subscription">
    <input type="submit" class="btn btn-default" value="Subscribe"/>
</form>

The example uses the standard partial mailSignup::result for displaying the subscription confirmation message. If you don't like the standard message you can create your own partial in your theme and specify its name in the data-request-update attribute. The default partial is located in plugins/studiobosco/sendinblue/components/signup/result.htm.
