I think you’ll find our plugin to be really very intuitive. There are only a few steps to find yourself in a place where you can drop a form block anymore on your website.

You’ll have purchased the plugin through Freemius. And you should have been sent an email with login instructions (if you did not, you can contact support and we’ll help you get access to your purchase).

Install the Plugin

Log in to your member’s area and download the “Unified Captures” plugin. Then log in to your WordPress Admin and find your way to the plugins page.

At the top, you’ll see an “Upload Plugin” button. Click that and it’ll open the “Choose File” section.

Choose the file you downloaded to your desktop and follow the installation process.

Configure Your Email Services

After the plugin is installed, you’ll see a new parent admin menu item called “Unified Plugins”. Under that, you’ll find all your Unified Plugins including “Unified Captures”.

General Settings

You can choose to send emails to admin if there is an error (or listed emails)

The first option is only for those cases you need to clear the cache. The second is if you want to activate Google reCaptcha. You can use reCaptcha v2 or v3.

Enter your Site Key and Secret (follow the link to get your keys).

Email Service Settings

Now (unless you are just using WP Mail Forms) you just navigate to your favorite email service! And follow the instructions and links to connect the APIs.

How to Use Our Blocks in a Popup

One of the things in our development pipeline is to add popup functionality. But we’re not there yet.

So how did I create the popup using Unified Email Capture on our home page?

Simple. We used the free version of a plugin called “Popup Maker”.

It works great! And was one of the few popup plugins I found that allowed me to add a block.

But there is a trick. It still didn’t have the block editor available (it’s possible I missed a way to activate it or they add it in the future). But! It does support block markup.

So what you do is simply create a block in either a page or post editor. Using the block menu, copy it.

And paste that into the ‘Text Tab’ like you see below.


And again, we do have this in our development pipeline, but this is a great option regardless. It also gives you a nice selection of customization options including when it shows up, delays, etc…

If ANY of these trips you up, please don’t hesitate to submit a ticket and get help from our Unified Support Heroes. 🙂
