My Thrive Key: 8A255-7AE55-DE8D6-90E77-1FE61

Old ShortCode Backup. Stored here:

disable automatic updates in WordPress by adding this line of code in wp-config.php file: define(‘WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE’, false ); – make sure ”s are correct. Copy and paste doesn’t work. See the other entries just above in the wp-config.php file to confirm I’ve got the right inverted commas.

The shortcode is located in “wp-includes” folder


Lead Capture form details: Aweber, add

<input type=”hidden” name=”Custom ref” value=”[ref]” />

<input type=”hidden” name=”Custom source” value=”[source]” />


Add the fields in the form in aweber form design first. Then copy and paste into WordPress form, changing input type from “text” to “hidden” and adding the cookie [ref] etc as shown in red e.g.

<input type=”hidden” id=”awf_field-80531784″ class=”text” name=”custom ref” value=”[ref]”  onfocus=” if (this.value == ”) { this.value = ”; }” onblur=”if (this.value == ”) { this.value=”;} ” tabindex=”502″ />

<input type=”hidden” id=”awf_field-80531785″ class=”text” name=”custom source” value=”[source]”  onfocus=” if (this.value == ”) { this.value = ”; }” onblur=”if (this.value == ”) { this.value=”;} ” tabindex=”503″ />

No need to change or add “input type=” as used to do.

Here’s a video explaining – click here.


For GVO lead capture forms, Add the following

<input type=”hidden” name=”Custom1″ value=”[ref]” />

<input type=”hidden” name=”Custom2″ value=”[source]” />

Note: This used to be “id” rather than “value” but this now works with lightbox optin forms on Thrive too as “value”. See ligthbox on




In case you would like to force the redirection from http to https in any website so any time a user wants to access your website doesn’t matter if he types the URL with or without https, then you only need to add the following lines at the beginning of the .htaccess file in the public_html of your website:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule .* https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Note: to edit .htaccess in Cpanel click on “settings” and “view hidden files” then add these lines above, ABOVE the WordPress information.

Also worth adding plugin “really simple SSL”
