Use a Content Lock to Get More Email Subscribers

The recently released API Connections feature in Thrive Leads opens up some new possibilities for you to grow your mailing list... and the content locking short code is one of them!

Check out the video to see how the new feature works.​


Content Locking Example

Below, you'll find an example of a portion of the content being locked, using this new feature:

This is an example of locked content on the page. Only once you opt-in is this content revealed. However, if you reload the page or visit at a later time, you won't have to opt-in again - the content will remain unlocked for you.

​Hide Multi-Media

The content lock works for all kinds of content, even with the "blur" preview mode used here. You can hide text, images, video and whatever else you want, using this feature.

The blur mode has the advantage of giving your visitors an idea of what they are missing out of. The blurred effect brings the content closer, but still keeps it out of reach. This can be an extra incentive for readers to opt in.​

As you can see in the video, the content lock is easy to set up and it adds a powerful new tool for lead generation to your arsenal.​ While this is something that would typically be sold as a separate plugin or as a paid add-on, the content locking feature is a completely free upgrade for all Thrive Leads users and Thrive Members.

It's available for you to use immediately and all you need to do is update Thrive Leads to the latest version.​

API Connection Necessary

This content locking feature only works when you connect to an autoresponder via the API feature. For technical reasons, it's not possible to do the content locking with the HTML form integration.

That means that at the time of this writing, the feature works with Aweber, GetResponse, iContact, MailChimp, MailPoet, ActiveCampaign, Ontraport, Infusionsoft, GoToWebinar and the WordPress user registration.​

In our previous post, we've already received a few requests for integrations with other services. If your favorite marketing system isn't supported yet, please let us know by leaving a comment below! New integrations are considered depending on demand, so the more people ask for a specific integration, the more likely it will be added in a future update to the plugin.​

Update: We've since added more API connections to the plugin.  Here is the full list of API connections that we support:-

ConvertKit / Seva
SG Autorepondeur
Google Drive

  • Erik says:

    I would love to see integration with Sean Donahoe’s Rapid Mailer

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your comment, Erik.

  • Doug L says:


    I take it that the visitor gets cookied as soon as they opt in so they don’t have to opt in again on their next visit.

    If it is a cookie based system… I’m not sure if my next request/suggestion is even possible… but it would be great to build something where the form is smart enough to know if the person is already on your list, so that these people don’t have to re opt-in every time we use this content lock feature on other posts. Is the API integration and/or the cookie smart enough to accomplish this?

    • Dean P says:

      I’d love for this feature to have the ability work out if someone’s already on a list and then instead of displaying an email form (as they’re already on the list) display a social lock instead (to gain more traffic)

      That would be next level stuff, and I don’t know if it’s possible at all, but just a thought :)

      • Joachim K says:

        You want to force someone who already IS on your email list, to engage a second time on a social channel? Sorry, I think that is annoying!

      • Dean P says:

        When it comes to content upgrades what I suggested was actually smart (and is similar to what Shane did recently – as he already has Thrive users email addresses)

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        Some readers will think that it’s annoying, yes. In fact, they will think any kind of lock or any kind of barrier (such as an opt-in) is annoying. From my testing, a share lock will annoy about 2% of visitors and it will increase social shares by about 40x. Decent trade-off, I think. :)

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        We are working on a feature set that will make this possible. In fact, that was the plan all along. You’ll see this taking shape with some of our upcoming releases.

    • Joachim K says:

      As long as you use the same shortcode for all the posts, these people don’t have to re-optin. But if a visitor deletes the cookies in his browser, he has to re-optin.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      We are working on a feature set that will enable something along these lines, yes. :)

  • Juan C says:

    I’m wondering if this would work well for locking coupons or sales vouchers.

    Very nice work.

    • Jaya S says:

      Great idea Juan!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      That’s definitely one of the things you could use this feature for, yes.

  • Allan says:

    Shane, are there any plans to integrate with the SendReach API?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Allan,

      No plans yet, but if there are enough requests, we’ll consider it.

      • Doug Lietz says:

        Another vote from me for Sendreach API :)

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        Thanks for your vote, Doug.

      • George says:

        One more vote for Sendreach. (Please!)

  • Frederic S says:

    Hi, Shane
    This is a great feature. I was scratching my head about it, well looking around, and Boom you did it. The yearly membership is very valuable. I have a question; may be I miss it, but how can I offer similar option with the share option(unlocking by clicking Tweeter or FB), like you do in few of your articles? I very like it.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Frederic,

      Thanks for your comment! For unlocking via social sharing, please sit tight. We’re working on something new that will be added to the Thrive Themes brand in the near future. :)

      • Matteo says:

        Hi Shane,
        a Thrive Leads user here.
        Have you implemented a social locker (with the ability to share the post over fb, twitter, g+ and so on) so far?
        Thank you so much

      • Matteo says:

        Hi Shane,
        a Thrive Leads user here.
        Have you implemented a social locker (with the ability to share the post over fb, twitter, g+ and so on) so far?
        Thank you so much

  • danno s says:

    Love the way you keep sneaking in more features–thanks for this one!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks, Danno! Glad you’re enjoying the new features we’ve added. :)

  • Dean says:

    Hey Shane,

    Will it be possible to have the two step optins work with class names soon too?

    Right now we’re limited to class names on lightboxes but what if we have more than one pop up (like lead boxes) on one page

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Dean,

      I’m not sure I understand this request. It’s already possible to add more than one lightbox to a page, but I’m not sure how it relates to class names.

  • Sam says:

    I like this content locker. It would be great if it were integrated with Happy Grasshopper – a favorite system of thousands of real estate agents in the USA.

    To the other guy below, there are other FB, Twitter, etc…content locker plugins available out there.

    I just discovered ThriveThemes and routinely look at hundreds of sites and them designs. I’m very impressed at the integration of the websites, lead pages, and leads system. Nice job.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your comment, Sam!

  • Nubia R says:

    Hi, I would love to see integration with mailerlite

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your comment! Request noted.

  • Dirk R says:

    Great feature. One more vote for Sendreach

  • Kronda says:

    I’d love to see an integration with Drip (

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your comment and suggestion, Kronda.

  • Bruce B says:

    Excellent! Awesome! Just what I wanted. Off to implement it right now…

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks, Bruce! Glad to know you’re making use of the feature right away.

  • Vladimir V says:

    MadMimi – they have simple and easy API

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for the suggestion, Vladimir.

  • Harvey S says:


    • Michael Eccles says:

      Another vote for 1ShoppingCart!
      Thanks Shane & Paul – I can think of a number of ways to use this new feature…

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        Thanks for your comment, Michael!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for the suggestions.

  • Al Harji says:

    Amazing, the value of the membership keeps getting better with each enhancement – thank you!

    Would love to see integration with SendReach and arpReach which both have API integration capabilities.

  • Loz says:

    Great Shane – just great

    I’ve been waiting for this for my podcast transcripts :-)

    In case I missed it – is the hidden content still indexable by the search engines?

    BTW – if you guys introduced a simple gated system to charge for content in a straightforward members’ area – we wouldn’t ever need to go anywhere else :-)



    PS – Have a look at the superb new homepage I’ve built with Thrive.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Loz,

      Thanks for your comment! Yes, the locked content is still indexable.

      As for the membership system: we might do that in the future, but it’s probably not going to be simple…

  • Karim A says:

    Excellent :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Glad you like it, Karim!

  • Andreas says:

    API Integration with Mad Mimi would be great!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote!

  • Great Job Shane!
    That’s the benefit of being a member of thrive themes, you just keep adding value without nickel and diming us although all the enhancement are worth any thing you would charge. But I appreciate you don’t.

    Adding a smart social media share option to this would be great.



    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your comment, Eddy!

  • Olivier N says:

    That would be great to set a cookie when the visitor opt-in so he no longer has to opt-in over and over again. I asked a very similar feature in the forum – still waiting for an answer BTW.

    I’m using a french autoresponder called and I’d love to see integration with that system too.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Olivier,

      We’re working on a more involved “already subscribed” feature set. There’s no ETA yet, but you’ll see this feature growing in future releases of Thrive Leads.

  • Luca says:

    Any plan to integrate with Mailrelay?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Luca,

      No plans yet, but if there’s a lot of demand for it, we’ll take it into consideration.

      • Agustín M says:

        My vote for Mailrelay

  • Albert F A Matthews says:

    This is a very powerful audition Guys and the design wise it really unique with the transparency feature and one feature I will soon be using for sure, thanks

  • Love the new feature Shane! I would like to integrate Thrive Leads with Drip Email Automation.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for the suggestion, Ross.

  • Tony Blum says:

    It would be great if in order to unlock the content people would have to share it on Facebook and the post on Facebook would then send people to a landing page where they would opt in. That could grow our list even faster.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Tony,

      Something along those lines will be possible in the future, yes. :)

  • Baseem says:

    Awesome new feature!
    Been waiting for that!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Glad we could deliver!

  • Cesar A says:

    Overall I like this. But there is nothing to prevent someone to enter a bogus email address. I have been looking for a solution where I offer bonus content on a per blog basis and this comes close.

    Keep up the great work

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Cesar,

      Yes, that’s correct. This is a trade-off that there isn’t really any way around. Either you make people confirm their address, meaning you need to send them away from the page they’re looking at, or you keep them on the page but risk getting bogus emails…

  • Ioan Nicut says:

    Hi Shane,
    Your stuff is amazing.
    I noticed there are some places where you are asking people to unlock some articles by sharing your page in FB.
    Is this feature a thrives content unlocking thing or?
    How can I get that too?
    Thanks for what you bring for the world.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Ioan,

      The unlocking via social sharing is something that will be coming soon to Thrive as well. :)

  • Max F says:

    Do you add a klick-tipp integration?

    Best regards,
    Max! :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      I’ve noted this request for the integration. If we get enough requests for it, we’ll check it out.

  • Josh says:

    Does thrive leads work on SSL?

  • Don d says:

    Premium Webcart’s CRM integration would be amazing.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for the suggestion, Don!

  • Alex says:

    To easy for people type a fake email address, isn’t it?

  • Dennis M says:

    SendinBlue API would be great.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your vote.

  • Eric says:

    Please integrate with Sendy.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your suggestion, Eric.

  • Wow … I loved this news. It will be of great help to the project and very interesting

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Glad to know this is useful for you, Dani!

  • Andrew says:

    Keep it up–Loving the recent upgrades/updates
    Image size/mail API/ content lock–
    3 very nice and usable features all in a row.

  • SandraT says:

    Nice :-)

    ConstantContact please

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your suggestion, Sandra.

  • Dan P says:

    Another vote for Sendy please.
    Social locker is thumbs up too.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote, Dan.

  • Keith M says:

    Will this be available on Content Builder?
    Adding Facebook, Google+ and Twitter would be super cool.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Keith,

      No, this is only available in Thrive Leads. Social locks will be added later, in a separate plugin.

  • Rajiv Abraham says:

    Love the new features Shane.

    +4 for SendReach API please.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your vote, Rajiv.

  • Joe says:

    Hi Shane

    I was a bit surprised to see that you only answered one query in the comments when you usually answer all queries. Is there a reason for this?

    Some of us, like me, are a bit dense and don’t always realise all the things we could do with the applications you keep giving us and consequently only use 50% instead of 100.

    I personally take notes on your answers to queries and they help me a lot.

    Many thanks

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Joe,

      I’ve been travelling a lot lately and hadn’t gotten around to answering the comments yet. :)

  • Ifoma says:

    I would love to see Thrive integrate with Hatchbuck. It’s a pretty awesome CRM system!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for the suggestion!

  • Frank V says:

    API Integration mit Klick Tipp wäre prima!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote.

  • Justin Ritter says:

    Hey Shane, Really like what you do here at Thrive Themes.
    Excellent work…
    I would be interested in integrating with Vero in the future.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your comment, Justin! I’ve noted Vero as a suggested integration as well.

  • Mike M says:

    Sweet! How can I use this to hide a download!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Mike,

      Yes, you can definitely use it for that. You simply put your download link in between the two parts of the content locking short code and you’re good to go. :)

  • Kirk M says:

    Wow! All you need to add now is a Facebook Connect / Google+ opt-in feature and then Thrive Leads will have absolutely everything you could want in a lead generation tool.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Kirk,

      Thanks for your comment! Because of our previous experience with Facebook connect for opt-ins, we decided not to pursue that in Thrive Leads. We’d found it to be quite ineffective.

  • Jakob says:

    Im no customer yet but i’v been following your updates and products and gotta say that this is the best plugin so far on the market.
    The Content Builder and Thrive Leads tops any other !
    Keep the good work !

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you very much, Jakob! Nice Deus Ex avatar. :)

  • Fiona F says:

    +1 Vote for API integration with “Campaign Monitor”.

    I feel that this is a fabulous revamp/inclusion of the features I miss from the older social share lock plugin from Shane.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your suggestion, Fiona!

  • Jeffrey says:

    Would love to see integration with ArpReach

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your suggestion, Jeffrey.

  • Please integrate with madmimi thx!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your vote.

  • Chris says:

    That sound quite awesome and I want to say thank you for your great work!

    Maybe it is possible to get the arpReach integration. ArpReach has an API as well and maybe you can make integration with this self hosted autoresponder software as well.

    If you need further information feel free to contact me.

    Kindest regards

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Chris,

      If they have an API, I’m sure creating the integration won’t be much of an issue. We’re currently just waiting to see which services we get the most requests for, before developing anything new. It wouldn’t make much sense to invest a lot of time into API integrations that very few people will ever use, after all. :)

  • Rita says:

    Hi Shane, thanks for that!

    And another vote for “Klick-Tipp”

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote.

  • Andy says:

    Another vote for arpReach integration.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote, Andy.

  • Ant says:

    Integration with rapid mailer and the well commented social locker would be great from my point of view.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your suggestions, Ant.

  • Lloyd Kim says:

    Hi Shane Melaugh,

    Thrivethemes is Surely a winner and i am in love with all the features.

    I love the Fact that Your software is a one off purchase and NOT like LeadPages and others that tie you to very expensive monthly subscriptions.

    Many online marketers are increasingly opting for self hosted solutions where one has full control and flexibility.

    In the same vein that thrivethemes settled for a “buy and go” option You Guys should as a matter of Urgency Introduce an API or a Plugin to Integrate with Self Hosted Word Press Autoresponder Email System like IMSC Rapid Mailer.

    I already have Rapid Mailer and am looking for a Word Press supported Squeeze Page and Landing Pages Solution and I think after doing ALL my reviews with LeadPages, InstaPage, OptimizePress etc I have FULLY settled for Thrivethemes.

    The Only problem is I dont see ThriveThemes Supporting RAPIDMAILER.

    Can You Kindly Create a way to Integrate with Rapid Mailer and You have a Ready Customer with Credit Card at hand to Purchase your Software for Multiple WP Sites (Multiple Licence)

    I have MANY other People I can recommend Thrivethemes if you can Inegrate with IMSCRapidMailer

    Kind Regards

    Lloyd Kim

    • Doesn’t IMSC Rapid Mailer give you HTML forms that you can use to integrate with?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Lloyd,

      Thank you for your comment!

      If there are enough requests for a new integration, we will take it on. We’re recording all the integration requests we receive, so we can make sure we take on the ones that will be useful to the largest number of users.

  • David says:


    neat feature. Congrats.

    Is the locked content indexable by Google?

    +1 to the smart recognition if the user is already in your email list, so he doesn’t have to unlock anything, by the way.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello David,

      The locked content is indexable, yes. However, I’d always assume that Google will ignore any content that is locked.

  • Chris says:

    I would like to have a klick-tipp integration as well.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your vote, Chris!

  • Franck says:


    It would be useful for me to have an integration with Cybermailing.


    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for the suggestion, Franck. If there’s enough request for it, we will consider this integration.

  • Bruce says:

    Hi Shane,
    I have read recently that Google is going to pay a particular attention and penalise the ranking of sites using this type of content blockers system and also interstitials.

    Are you guys aware of such new policy? What do you think about it?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Bruce,

      I would always assume that search engines are blind to any locked content. So, if you lock an entire post, I would not expect that post to get indexed like a “real” blog post.

      In my opinion, locking away large swaths of content is not the optimal way to use content locking anyway. It’s much better to lock away a small piece of bonus content such as a download link for a PDF, a bonus video or maybe a bonus tip in a post that already contains 10 tips freely.

  • Chris M says:

    I would like to see a simple “HTML” auto responder code integration (I think that all systems will give you an HTML embed code now) or an integration to

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi Chris,

      For Thrive Leads and our other lead generation options, you can use an HTML integration which makes it compatible with almost every autoresponder system out there. Unfortunately, this integration doesn’t work with content locking, where the visitor needs to be kept on the same page after submitting the form. That only works via an API.

  • Deana says:

    Another vote for Hatchbuck…pretty please! :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your vote, Deana.

  • Kathleen says:

    Another vote for Hatchbuck.

  • Pat says:

    yet another Klick-Tipp vote ;-)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote, Pat! Klick-Tipp has been implemented in the latest version.

  • ERIC S says:

    Nice feature! Gives people quick access with just their email address. Hmm, get a lot of fake emails this way or is their way to validate email address?

    • Matt says:

      Looking at Shane’s earlier comments, it sound like there is not currently email validation with this feature. I know that some other services (like OptinLinks) have email validation, but I have no idea how good that validation is.

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        We do have in-line validation in the form, so you can’t just enter gibberish. But with the content lock, there’s nothing to prevent someone from entering a fake email address. It’s like a single-optin form.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      That’s a trade-off with the content lock feature, yes. It works well because it’s instant, but there’s no email confirmation, so there’s no protection against fake addresses.

  • Vladimir G says:

    How to add a FB or a g+ button to unlock the content after sharing it?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Vladimir,

      We currently don’t have a social sharing unlock feature yet.

  • Ewen says:

    This is awesome, all of it. Someone remind me again why I am paying $70/month for a SAAS version of this? It has been 5 years since I installed WordPress on a web server. Looks like it’s time.

    Please add me to the list of people asking for integration.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your comment, Ewen! I’ve added your vote for Drip integration.

  • James jones says:

    Does this work with Seans Rapid Mailer?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      We don’t have an API connection for Rapid Mailer, so this feature isn’t available with that combination.

  • Bermard says:

    Hi Shane,
    Great add on. I’d love to use it on my page.

    Could you please add . SG is a leading autoresponder in france. There is an api available on their side so you should have easier integration.
    Keep on the good work.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Bernard,

      Thanks for your comment! I’ve added this as a vote for SG-Autorespondeur integration.

  • Bernard says:

    Add on information on previous comment.
    Api howto (in french)

    • samuel r says:

      It would be great to have an api for SG Autorépondeur, that’s right!!!

  • Matthieu says:

    Could you please add ?
    This is a french autoresponder and they have an API.

  • Hi Shane,
    Here’s another vote for arpReach.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Kevin,

      Arpreach is now available to integrate with.

  • Rick says:

    arpReach has a new API. I am a ThriveLeads customer. It would mean a lot to have this integration added.

  • marco says:

    Hi, arpReach would be fine!

  • Tim says:

    I’m not an ThriveThemes customer (yet) but I am an arpReach customer and I like this feature. It’s about time to change the theme on a number of my site so I am in the market… When you support aprReach it would make the decision to switch a lot easier.

  • Al says:

    ArpReach integration would be awesome!

  • Jay Poole says:

    Now that arpReach has it’s own API an integration with it would be really welcomed. So +1 for arpReach

  • Melvan says:

    Another vote for arpReach integration.

  • Mark says:

    My vote for arpReach too!

  • Florin says:

    Another vote for Arpreach here

  • Here comes another arpReach vote :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Paul,

      Arpreach is now available as an API integration.

  • Dez Futak says:

    +1 for Arpreach integration; they now have a very developed API.

  • Rafael says:

    I Would love to see integration with ArpReach!

  • Clay W says:

    Would like to also see integration with Hatchbuck. It’s a really solid small business CRM.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your suggestion, Clay!

  • Max L says:

    would like to see native support for gravityforms … as it is semi-default for good WP sites and integrates already with so many things.
    .. and of course with SharpSpring as well .. already brought about this up in the forum as well.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your suggestions, Max!

  • Uwe K says:

    I built my first thrivethemes site now! Still dont understand all features yet, but glad about it anyway. Since I liked mailerlite in my other websites I vote for integration too. Thank you.

      Thank you, Uwe! We’ve added Mailerlite in a recent update.

  • Jeff says:

    I am looking to have a button that will initialize a hide/reveal similar to this but without the need for the list, Can not find how to get this to work….

    • Jeff – what is the goal for hiding the content? From what I understand, it sounds like you simply need to use a toggle.

  • C says:


    Is that social locker feature completed yet. I’m anxiously awaiting it.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      We have plans to add social locking in a future plugin, but there’s quite a long list of other features and products we want to build first.

  • Marco T says:

    This is amazing! I love you guys!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you, Marco!

  • Marcos says:

    It would be awesome to have mailerlite integration :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Marcos,

      We’ve added Mailerlite in a recent update.

  • anthony r says:

    What happened to the “regular” content locking? I thought there was a feature to lock content inside the builder without them needing to opt in to an autoresponder.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Anthony,

      I’m not sure what you mean by this. How would this locked content be unlocked?

  • Mahendra says:

    I too vote for Integration with Mailerlite. The most affordable and far better than any other mailing software.

    Please provide us the integration

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      We’ve added a Mailerlite integration in a recent update.

  • Amin says:


    I’m a French User, and in France we are a lot working with “SG autorepondeur”.
    Is it possible to integrate their API in your plugin ?
    Or is it possible to allow content locking with html form ?

    Here is their API tutorial :

    Thank you very much

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Amin,

      The locking feature is only available through an API connection, since an HTML form will always redirect to a different page after submit. Currently, we don’t have an integration with SG Autorespondeur.

  • Mahendra R says:

    Any plan for integration with Mailerlite ?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      We’ve added a Mailerlite integration in a recent update. :)

  • Damian M says:

    I cant see Mailer Lite in the API connection list so far…

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Damian,

      Mailerlite was added recently.

  • Miquel R says:

    Shane: please, please, please :: integrate with the Mailrelay API
    :-) Miquel Rane
    That will be a magnificent THRIVE advertising market in a huge Spanish – Latin American: thanks to his team for their efforts, continue to buy their products.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Miquel,

      We’ll be working on this integration shortly.

  • K O says:

    Hey Shane, any timeframe on the social share locker plug?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Sorry, no ETA yet.

  • Johnny says:

    Hey Shane, any timeframe on the social share locker plug?
    The posts don’t have dates on them, so no idea when was the last time ppl asked you for it.

  • Joe says: is an email automation system that has an API and also allows you to drop their java script tracking code onto a page. The code allows them to see any forms existing on the page and then you can configure what happens to a form submission in their system. Would this java script work on the content gate? If not it would be great if the content gate worked with Zapier so I could add the email to any email service provider or automated email manager.

    • Spencer T says:

      I too use AutopilotHQ for myself and clients. It would be great if ThriveThemes integrated with this platform.

  • ivan g says:

    My vote for Mailrelay and leadin

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your suggestions, Ivan!

  • Jatinder P says:

    Integration with interspire?

  • Richard says:

    Hi ! When the double optin will be released ? :) thanks

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Richard,
      For this feature, double opt-in is not possible.

  • Frank W says:

    Shane, you mention a video in this post. But there is none?!

  • Hervé L says:

    Hello !
    My vote is for SG-autorepondeur, I’d like to use API with it.
    Best regards.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thanks for your vote, Hervé!

  • It will work for discount coupons?
    Very interesting, thank you!

  • SURYA B says:

    I noticed that the content lock is creating problems with Google indexing, the crawler throws up blocked content error, and this could affect search results. How to solve this problem?

  • Kevin Reece says:

    Integration with Autopilot would be great!

  • My vote: arpReach integration

  • Ruby D says:

    Please try and find a way to make this work with HTML integration, as subs via Aweber’s API are forced double optin which kills numbers.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Ruby,

      It is not possible to create a function like this while using HTML opt-in forms. If we’re submitting an HTML form, then what happens after the submit is determined by that form, not by our plugin.

      • Mark says:

        It seems that if it is an API connection then it should be possible for Thrive Software to know if and when the user double-opted in, and revewl the content once they click the optin in link in their email.

  • Jefferson says:

    Also I would like to see the integration with ArpReach

  • Martin Hamilton says:

    How do you do make it so it unlocks when they social share? Instead of getting their email address there are buttons to Facebook, twitter, and G+ and all they do is share to one of those places to unlock the content.

  • loic t says:

    Please, can you add SG Autorépondeur, the TOP 1 in France ???

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Loic,
      I recorded your request. If we get enough demand we’ll look into it.

      • loic t says:

        I can read a lot of demands for SG Autorépondeur… You could have a big part of the french market…with your tool !

  • richard l says:

    Hi !
    SG autorepondeur is not listed :(
    I can’t use your functionnality. You don’t like french people ? :p

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Richard,
      Nothing against French people ;-) We’re counting all requests for different API integrations and when we get enough demand, we’ll try to make it happen!

  • Jonas Brito says:

    Interessante! Mais um voto para Sendreach

    • richard l says:

      Thanks Hanne, i understand but 2 things :
      1. The population is not the same in france as in united states. So, you will have more demand in this countries as you could have in France.
      2. It is not because people don’t make a demand that they don’t want this feature :)
      Thank you and I hope it will be available soon because i need it :)

  • Ben says:

    Is it possible to have a social content lock? So users must Facebook Share the page before it is revealed?

    I will 100% buy if that is possible!

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Ben,
      No the content share social lock is not available in Thrive Leads.

  • Indera S says:

    How to force double optin for content locker??

  • Paul says:

    I’ve never thought about using e-mail machines. That’s awesome and will reduce my work a lot!

  • Will it work for discount coupons?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Milla,

      You could reveal a coupon code or send a coupon code after opt-in, yes.

  • Ana Paula says:

    I found very interesting. I’ll try.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      I hope you get a good result from giving with a try. :)

  • Will it work with discount coupons?
    Very interesting, thank you!

    • Hanne says:

      Yes you can unlock anything you want!

  • Efron says:

    Please integrate with Arigato Autoresponder

  • Bruna says:

    I need a theme for my blog. how can to buy then?

  • joão says:

    I would very much like to have integration with the e-goi system and I have already used it for a long time and would not want to change.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you for your suggestion!

  • Isaque says:

    This plugin is very smart when it comes to updating

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you, Isaque!

  • Leonardo says:

    This plugin is very smart and makes all the difference for truth

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you, Leonardo!

  • Daiane says:

    Muito interessante mas se a pessoa já for da sua lista, como fica terá que deixar novamente seu e-mail. Será que não sairá do seu site mais rápido?

  • Gustavo says:

    Social locker is thumbs up too

  • Another vote from me for Sendreach API ;)

  • Muito bom seu artigo, foi bem importante pra mim. Abs.

  • Jessie B says:

    What is content lock and why would you use this?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      It’s just another option for building your mailing list. You can see an example of one in the post above.

  • Luana says:

    Very interesting. I think I’ll start using this plugin
