Rename Campaign Monitor - Reseller

  1. wsimelb

    Is there a way to rename occurrences of "Campaign Monitor" within the plugin? This may be a feature request more so than a support question.

    Some people resell campaign monitor under their own branding (like we do) and when setting it up on a Wordpress site (with the great Gravity Forms) under the forms tab (and Plugin tab) it shows as "Campaign Monitor". Can this show as our own branded name?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Currently there is not. We could probably implement a variable in the plugin that allows you to do this, however one thing to note is that folder and plugin zip file itself would still say Campaign Monitor... and the settings page is fairly campaign monitor specific. I can discuss it with the team.

  3. We really need this too, and I think you'll find a lot of your customers who are setting up websites for their clients will need the Campaign Monitor integration to be white-label (that is the whole point of Campaign Monitor after all). Can you let us know when this will be possible?

  4. I too think this needs to happen

  5. You really shouldn't be using attempting white label quite yet, at least until you can activate the add-on with a Client API Key instead of the master.

  6. I too am a Campaign Monitor reseller and was alarmed to see an Add-on menu with Campaign Monitor listed for all to see. The last thing I want is a client seeing the wholesale price and by-passing the service I am offering.

    I have just upgraded to a GF developers license and am seriously reconsidering my investment. Guys, if you are going to offer a plugin for a service that can be white labelled please provide the same facility.

    I know this won't fix the issue if the add-on is installed but for anyone who is in the same situation I have added this to functions.php to remove any reference from the admin menu.

    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'zg_remove_menu_entries', 999 );
    function zg_remove_menu_entries () {
    	// with WP 3.1 and higher
    	if ( function_exists( 'remove_submenu_page' ) ) {
    		remove_submenu_page( 'gf_edit_forms', 'gf_addons' );
    		remove_submenu_page( 'gf_edit_forms', 'gf_help' );
    	}
    }

    Just need to hide this code away now. :) Please seriously look at the ability to white label the Campaign Monitor plugin.

    Many Thanks

  11. No action on this?

    1) Why buy developer license?
    a. To setup client sites with the best form builder period.

    2) Why activate CM extension on Gravity Forms?
    a. To allow your clients to use the best email system ever.

    3) Why pull your hair out when you see CM name all over?
    a. Because you're working hard not to confuse your client and make it harder than it needs to be.

    +1 and another thousand +1 on the option to change the reference name in every instance where it will be viewable in the dashboard!

  12. I don't understand why this hasn't been added yet. I've written a plugin for Shopp to integrate with Campaign Monitor and made it 100% whitelabel-able, it really isn't that hard. And btw, I called it "Email Marketing" rather than "Campaign Monitor" by default, to make sure the zip & folder name didn't have to have "Campaign Monitor" in them.

    Anyway, I just finished editing the plugin files to make it whitelabel-able. Only need to make a different image (to replace the CM image on the plugin-page).

    @CarlHancock, I'd be more than willing to send you guys the adjusted files. All I need is an emailaddress where I can send it to :)

  14. That is really really good news! Please share the goodness :-)
    Thanks Hiranthi!!!

  15. Sent :)

    -- edit
    A little more info on what I've done:

    1) Added a define to specifiy your reseller name for CM, by default it uses Email Marketing.
    2) The admin-page URL reflects the name that's chosen.
    3) The folder & filenames of the plugin have been generalized (using emailmarketing).
    4) Change the name in the Plugin Name ( and/or change the Plugin Description) too by creating a new translation file and "translate" those texts.
    5) Define the custom URL you use for CM (there was one reference to campaignmonitor.com). It defaults to campaignmonitor.com

    Now all we can do is hope the GF guys will pick it up and make it available :)

    Can you also send it to me at peralty@rocketgenius.com so I can make sure it gets in the right hands? I don't want you to feel your effort to work with us was in any way a waste.

    Received and made sure to pass it on to our lead developer myself. Thanks again!

  19. Awesome :)

  20. Any chance I'll be getting an update about whether the adjusted stuff will be used or not?

    I haven't heard anything. We've been busy due to the holidays, and WordPress 3.5 and our Quiz add-on. Hopefully, we will hear more back from the development team on this soon. Thank you for your patience.

  22. No worries, I've already got a working version anyway ;-)
    I was just wondering :)

  23. Any idea when this "soon" will be?

  24. Hiranthi,

    Can you post your plugin in a place where other developers can get this? I'd love to get my hands on the White Label CM plugin for Gravity Forms. It would be a serious plus!

    I've e-mailed the developers again. They've been super busy with 1.7 and hopefully someone can respond soon about it all. Thanks again for everyone's continued patience.

    One of the developers have responded and wanted to confirm you are all okay with the following limitations as we can't change:

    1- The plugin folder name
    2- The plugin name (when viewed in the plugins page). That text comes from the plugin description, which can't be changed dynamically
    3- The plugin description (when viewed in the plugins page).
    4- The add-on manager plugin name

    So it is limited on how "white label" this will be, but would it still be of value to you?

    Posted 5 years ago on Friday March 8, 2013 | Permalink
  27. Why wouldn't you be able to change the plugin's folder name? I mean, you could just release the white-label version as separate version. That would also make changing the Plugin Name & Plugin Description possible.

    Besides that: you can also make the plugin details localizable.

    With making it a separate plugin you could also leave it out of the add-on manager, or use the Plugin info (not sure what the function for it is, but it's on the WP Codex) to display instead of static names.
    I don't know how the verification of the plugin (for auto-updates & installing from the add-on manager) is currently done, but if it relies on the name that could be a problem. Perhaps using a separate string for this plugin?

    Otherwise I'll just make a new white label version and release it myself. Because I don't see how it would really benefit white label CM users at all (if the above really can't be changed).

  28. This is not something we plan on developing or releasing ourselves.

    Something to keep in mind is Campaign Monitor users are a tiny subset of our users and then White Label Campaign Monitor users are an even tinier subset. The vast majority of our users that use Campaign Monitor aren't doing so via a White Label situation.

    This is a perfect example of when something should be developed and released by a 3rd party developer, something we encourage developers to do when we aren't going to be developing an Add-On ourselves.

    There are a large number of 3rd party Gravity Forms Add-Ons already available, many on WordPress.org's plugin repository:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=gravity+forms

    It would need to be released as a separate plugin and there are complexities involved in this particular situation that make it not suitable for how we make Add-Ons available via our Add-On manager. Having to make edits and change things such as the plugin folder name, and variables that manage the name of the plugin and it's description in the plugin repository. It's not something that can be distributed easily via our Add-On management tool.

    If you've made a similar plugin for Shopp then it sounds like you could easily take our existing Campaign Monitor Add-On and do the same for Gravity Forms.

    We simply can't create every Add-On that is requested. Any WordPress developer can create a Gravity Forms Add-On and we encourage WordPress developers to do so when it's a situation where we do not plan on releasing a particular Add-On.

    If you release it we'll be glad to make users aware of it on this thread as well as on our Resources page that lists available 3rd party Add-Ons. When we launch our new site we'll be doing more to spotlight 3rd party Add-Ons.

    Although I fully understand this, you and your team have been giving white label CM users the feeling that there would be an official add-on for this.

    A year ago you didn't mention this (you said you'd take this up with the team (to not get back to it) and when I mentioned I adjusted the current CM plugin to be white-label-proof (3 months ago) I didn't get a response close to this either (and I never got a reply to the email containing that adjusted add-on).

    So, you can say I'm rather disappointed in the communication between us. The fact that you're not going to make it could have been said a long time ago.

    Anyway, I guess this means I'll be making my first GF add-on.
