I am hoping you have the answer here. We want to connect EE customers to Mailerlite. I see WPfusiion is recommended. Problem is, no EE fields show up in the WPforms conctact fields setting. My screen doees not look loke the WPForms example. Do you know if the Lite (free) WPfroms does NOT work for EE? Thanks

Hi there,

You can follow this documentation here to connect mailerlite: https://wpfusion.com/connect/connect-event-espresso-to-mailerlite/

https://wpfusion.com/documentation/events/event-espresso/

Hope that helps.

Sam, I already spent a fair amount of time on those links. Problem is, I do not see the EE fields at all. It says “For each Event Espresso field you can select a corresponding field in your CRM in which to store the data.” But I don’t see the fields that they show in their screenshot. Very frustrating. I am going to give up on it. Make Mailchimp work. That integration plugin you have works very well. I hope you develop your own plugin for Mailerlite. Thanks

Hi there,

Although it sounds like you are going a different route here can I jump in an ask a couple of questions on this?

You’ve titled the thread ‘Connect WPFusion problem’, so I’d assume this relates to WPFusion, correct?

In your opening post you then switch to WPForms, referring to WPForms Contact fields, but as far as I am aware those are different fields to WPFusion.

Are yo trying to connect WPFusion -> EE -> Mailerlite or something else through WPForms?

Unless I’m misunderstanding here it sounds like there some confusion on which setting fields to look at.

Do you know if the Lite (free) WPfroms does NOT work for EE?

We don’t have a WPForms integration so EE does not ‘work for’ EE, what is it your trying to do with WPForms and EE?

My apologies for the confusion. I am only talking about WPFusion. I know what WPForms is, but I was not trying to use that with EE. I was unable to get WPFusion settings on our WordPress to display the EE contact fields at all. As I said, we have now swtiched back to Mailchimp, using the EE plugin. That is working well, at least in my test. We’ll see when the next person buys a ticket. Seems like a very powerful plugin, but we just using it in the basic mode. Thanks!

Ah, ok. My apologies, with switching between the 2 terms it sounded like you were trying to use WPFusion and WPForms to try and integrate together into EE …. in which case it would have been an easy fix (or at least attempt to fix) in looking in a different location to get the ‘correct’ fields.

But, nope, just a mixing of terms and you already were checking in the right place 🙂

I’m glad you have something working now, any further questions just let me know.
