Simple WordPress Optin form with CURL support

Simple Optin form example for WordPress

This is a simplified showcase of how you can easily build your own Optin form in WordPress.

It can connect to any API that supports cURL (most of them do). There is no error reporting implemented. It uses exit intent detection script called Ouibounce, which needs to be enqueued in your functions.php

See the tutorial here: How to build your own WordPress email form

<?php
class Optin_Form {
public function __construct() {
add_action( 'wp_ajax_process_optin_submission', array( $this, 'process' ) );
add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_process_optin_submission', array( $this, 'process' ) );
}
public function process() {
if( ! wp_verify_nonce( $_POST['nonce'], 'ouibounce' ) )
return;
$data = array(
'email' => $_POST['email']
);
$curl = curl_init();
curl_setopt_array( $curl, array(
CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array( 'Content-Type: application/json', 'Accept: application/json' ), // -H parameter
CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => 1, // so that we can catch the response in a variable
CURLOPT_URL => 'http://reqr.es/api/users', // The endpoint
CURLOPT_POST => 1, // -X POST
CURLOPT_USERPWD => 'app_id:api_key', // -u parameter (not always needed)
CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => json_encode( $data ) // because we set Content-Type to JSON
) );
$resp = curl_exec( $curl );
curl_close( $curl );
print_r( $resp );
wp_die();
}
public function render() { ?>
