Technical Notes For Advanced Users:

How do I Activate Module?

Activation is a quick and easy process. Refer to or watch the  above video to get started.

Verify CSV File Extension

Live Campaign allows you to upload CSV files to import bulk email addresses. Before we can do this, we must verify that the .csv extension is allowed to be uploaded.

From Host Settings > Other Settings > Allowable File Extensions

Verify that csv exists in the list of allowable extensions. If it does not, please add it and save settings.

Add Live Campaign Module

Begin by adding an instance of Live Campaign module to a page. This could be any page but we strongly recommend to use the existing Admin > Bulk Email page. If you use any other page, make sure that the page and the module is only visible to administrators; otherwise, any user on your site will be able to send bulk emails.

You can configure the permissions of a page from Edit Page > Page Permissions

Refer to Quick Setup to setup your Live Campaign module.

Note: If you copy the exact same installation (files + db) to the production server then you can activate module on your dev server, you will not get any licensing issue. You can also use the module without activating it as it will never expire on your localhost with a portal alias that begins with http://localhost.

Quick Setup

Step 1: Configure Mail Server

By Default, Live Campaign uses the SMTP Server provider in DNN Host Settings and no further configuration is required. If you wish to use the same settings then continue to step 2.

Otherwise, configure Live Campaign for either Load Balancing or Failover SMTP Servers.

Note: If you do not wish to use the DNN Host Settings and do not have multiple SMTP servers then you may configure a single server as Failover.

Step 2: Setup Bounce Management (Optional)

Live Campaign can automatically detect bounced messages and remove these addresses from your lists. Refer to Bounce Management and complete the necessary steps if you would like to enable this feature.

Step 3: Define Default Settings

Update preferences by providing basic information for Default Settings that will be used to setup all new email campaigns.

You are now ready to send your first email campaign.
