How to integrate Password Protect WordPress with ActiveCampaign step by step tutorial

Step 1: Password protect your private page

Password protect your private page using our Password Protect WordPress plugin.

Step 2: Select the password protected page

Select this password protected page under PDA ActiveCampaign settings, which tells our plugins to auto-generate a password for each subscriber to access it.

  • Step 2.1: Go to PDA ActiveCampaign settings page under Settings in the right sidebar.

  • Step 2.2: Choose the password protected page or post.

Note: Once you’ve installed and activated our PDA ActiveCampaign Integration extension successfully, we actually create 2 custom fields on your ActiveCampaign’s user data, i.e. PDA_PRIVATE_LINK and PDA_PWD and a webhook.

Manage and edit your webhooks under Settings > Developer of your ActiveCampaign account page.

You can choose which actions that will trigger our API to generate a password to access your private page. “Contact Added” and “Contact Updated” are the 2 default actions.

URL: yourwebsite.com/wp-json/pda-mkt/v3/ac-hook

Manage and edit your webhooks under Settings > Developer

These fields will store your chosen private page on step 2 and the auto-generated password when the following actions occur.

Step 3: Embed Password Info into email template

Embed the password protected page and auto-generated password to your ActiveCampaign’s email template.

You should see our plugin’s personalization tags under “Add a personalization” popup which named PDA Password and PDA Private Link.

  • Step 3.3: Your email template will look something like below once you embed our pre-defined “variables”.

Save your email template. That’s all you have to do. Now let our plugins take care of the rest and work their magic for you.
