Track Site Visitors with the New Agile CRM Joomla Extension

Track Site Visitors with the New Agile CRM Joomla Extension

If you are a web developer or your website runs on the Joomla content management system (CMS), we’ve got a treat for you: You now can easily integrate Agile CRM with Joomla through our new Joomla extension.

While WordPress is by far the most popular choice among businesses for simple CMS functionality, with more than 17 million websites using the platform, sometimes the blogging platform just isn’t enough. When businesses need more advanced CMS functionality, they turn to business-grade CMS solutions such as Joomla and Drupal. Joomla runs nearly 2.5 million websites and offers exceptional back-end organization and menu creation while still being open source and having a thriving community of developers like WordPress.

We’ve long had a WordPress plugin for easy Agile CRM integration with WordPress, and now we also have an extension for our Joomla users.

With the Agile CRM Joomla Extension, you can integrate web rules and web stats without needing any coding knowledge, show real-time web pop-ups to get more information about your website visitors and increase newsletter signups, easily customize web forms for your site, integrate customized Agile CRM landing pages with Joomla, and schedule bulk email campaigns with drag-and-drop ease.

How to Install the Agile CRM Joomla Extension

Step 1: Download and Install the Extension

Get the Agile CRM Joomla extension file by writing to care@agilecrm.com. Once you receive the file, download the extension. Unzip the downloaded file, and you will find four zip files in it:

  1. Components
  2. Content Plugin
  3. Editors-xtd
  4. Plugin

Log in to your Joomla admin panel and go to Extensions –> Manage –> Install to install the four zip files individually, one by one. After successful installation of the extension, go to Components and click on Agile CRM Home.

Please make sure you submit it to the Joomla Extensions Directory - that's where Joomla users find new technologies/products/extensions! Great to see that you have created this... I'm not quite clear what we will be able to do with this, but I'll dig around... Thanks for bringing AgileCRM and Joomla together.

Have you got a similar plugin for Drupal or when do you expect to have one?
