GetResponse adds Joomla! integration


If you have a website based on Joomla! script, we have some good news. We’ve just integrated GetResponse web forms with Joomla!. Here’s how you can take advantage of this and make it easy for your readers to subscribe to your newsletters and follow-up campaigns.


You can now create your own custom web form in GetResponse and use it on your Joomla!-based website.

It just takes a few easy steps:



  • First download the module from here and save it to your hard drive.
  • Now go to Joomla! and log in to your account.
  • To install the downloaded module, go to Extensions tab and choose “Install/Uninstall”.



  • Now upload the module from your hard drive, and wait for the successfull installation message.




  • Next go to the Extension tab again and choose Module Manager.


  • Find the new module on the list and click on GetResponse Integration.




  • Now it’s time to edit the module settings. In the “WebForm ID” field, paste the ID of the sign up form you created in GetResponse.  You’ll find the ID in your web form’s HTML code.




  • Edit the remaining settings.

If you want your web form to look exactly like you created it in GetResponse, leave the “Display Styles” set to “yes”.

If you want the web form to be adjusted to your Joomla!-based site,  choose “no”.




  • After you’re done with editing the module, make sure to save your settings.  Then from the module list choose “GetResponse Integration” module again and click “Enable” at the top of the page.


And that’s it – your GetResponse web form will now be visible on your web site.


Now you can take advantage of all the benefits of GetResponse sign up forms. Add any custom fields for more effective segmentation of your list and they will automatically appear on your Joomla! site sign up form. What could be easier?


Let us know what you think of this new integration. Are there any other integrations you’re looking forward to at the moment?

    Thank you for showing step by step how to use this new integration.

  • It’s great that GetResponse has Joomla integration now, however this tutorial is incorrect.

    The second step: Now go to Joomla! and log in to your account.

    This should read: Now go to your Joomla! installation admin interface and log in to your account.

    Additionally, for further exposure for all GetResponse customers, you can list your module in the Joomla! Extensions Directory:

    Thanks Matt, we’ve updated the instructions accordingly.

  • Thanks for the Joomla intergration. This will add more value to most websites.

  • Thanks for the Joomla integration. It’s great

  • Lisa

    That’s great – but where is Magento integration? It’s now one of the largest, most popular shopping carts in the world, and you still do not have integration with it. Would you please make that happen?

  • It’s great.Thanks for the Joomla integration.

  • Karolina Stefanowicz

    @LIsa, thanks for the suggestion, we’ll definitely consider this and will let you know!

  • I couldn’t upload this package via Mac OS. This saved to my hard drive as a go live file (?). Trying to install, joomla error: Unknown Archive type. Any ideas?


  • Karolina Stefanowicz

    Hi Dillon, no idea, sorry – I’ve downloaded it on a Mac OS just now and it downloads as a zip file, maybe something went wrong during the download or perhaps you haven’t got appropriate archive software installed? Try again, or if possible, try on a different machine, maybe this will help.

  • dillon

    Hi –
    So I downloaded on another computer and i got the zip file which contains these 3 files: mod_getresponse.php, mod_getresponse.xml and index.html. When I go to install the error is: unknown archive type. I tried all 3 files since the directions above don’t specify which file to use.

    Any help?

  • dillon

    Success. For regular janes like me – the instructions should say to upload the Zip file. I thought you had to unzip and load the files separately. I’m not a developer so this point was lost on me.

  • Karolina Stefanowicz

    Thanks Dillon, that was really useful feedback, and really sorry for the confusion. We’ll try and be clearer from now on. 🙂

  • Making Magento update to my site and hired a coder to integrate GetResponse and am really surprised there isn’t an integration yet. I have been using magento for 3 years and thought it would surely have it by now.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do it? Code custom extension with the APIs?

  • Karolina Stefanowicz

    @Sharky, we’re just working Magento integration in GetResponse – will update you on when it’s available. Make sure you stay tuned to the blog and our Facebook page for the latest news. Cheers.

  • Wolfgang

    we just tried to install the joomla module, it doesn´t show the module parameter section, we are using joomla 1.7

  • Hi Wolfgang,
    We’ve just updated the latest version of the plugin to work with Joomla 1.7, please download it from here:
    Let us know if this works.

  • Wolfgang

    it works

    thx a lot.

  • Francois


    I’m in trouble as for getting an extension for v.2.5. Your link is ok when it’s all about the v.3 of Joomla! (actual zip file), but there are only one php and one xml file as for the earlier version of our beloved cms.

    Since it’ simply impossible to directly upload such files through Joomla, I’m wonderying if you could provide me with some support here. Be sure it’d be more than appreciated. 😉

    Have a great day,


  • Karolina Kurcwald

    Hi François, you’ll find the older versions of the plugin here, including one vor v.2.5. Let me know if this helps:

  • Aga

    Hi, I’ve got joomla 3.2.1. and have recently added getresponse modules but one of them keeps disappearing. Any idea why it may be happening? Thanks!
