How do I install the AWeber for WordPress plugin?

With the AWeber for Wordpress plugin, you can easily drag and drop forms that you have created in your AWeber account onto your Wordpress page. All you need is your AWeber account and a completed sign up form. This is a great way to provide your website visitors with a way to join your email list.

The following instructions are for placing a form onto a blog that you are hosting on your own domain, using the software.

Users of blogs, please note that they do not permit placing forms on your blog. You may want to have AWeber host your form instead, and simply provide a link to the form on your blog.
