Screen One – Application  Settings

The first screen of Squeeze-U-Lator “The List Inflator” Looks like the image below. This is the screen where you define the basic information of your application. (Click the image to see it larger)

  • Select Data Folder – The folder containing all the files that you want to compile.
  • Application Title – The name of your App.
  • About – Click this and fill in the About Box information for your application.
  • Icon to use in EXE -Select a custom icon to use or leave blank and use the default icon.
  • Save Application As – The location and name of your saved file.
  • Affiliate ID – Enter your Squeeze-U-Lator affiliate ID. (Optional for full members).
  • Start Page & Exit pages – These are pages that will load before your app opens and when your app closes. Leave blank if you do not want to include these.

Screen Two – Navigation

On screen two, all the files that are within your Data folder are displayed. On the left “usable” files are listed on the right “other files” are shown.The useable files can be ordered as you want them to display in your application by selecting the files and using the up and down arrows.

The  “Other files” will be compiled in your app, but will only be displayed if they are called in an HTML page. They may be audio, video, images or js files that are called within any HTML pages compiled in your book.When compiling exe files or PDF files, “Other files” are redundant and should be deleted.

Any files that are listed, but not needed can be deleted by selecting them and clicking the red minus sign. (Files can be added using the green plus sign, but they must be within your Data folder).

You can “squeeze-u-late” HTML pages, PDF files, standalone exe files as well as exe and msi software  installers.

When “squeeze-u-lating” any kind of exe file, you **must** check the “This content includes an exe file”  check box. If you do not check this box, the Squeeze-U-Lator will try to load your exe file in the internal browser and your software will fail. Similarly, if you check this box when you are compiling HTML pages Squeeze-U-Lator will not work as expected.

Screen Three – Registration

On this screen you can activate registration and lock your app for subscribers only. Simply check the box to activate, enter the URL where you are going to upload the “register page” (made on the next screen) and generate a code. The register page will load from the registration screen within the software. After entering a name and email address, subscribers will be redirected to receive the unlock code for your app. (Autoresponder configuration required (see below).

Screen Four – Register Pages

This is the screen where you create the register pages. Fill out the page details as required and paste your autoresponder form code into the box provided. Then click “check form code”. The following screen will load and ask you to define which fields in your form are the name and email fields.

After selecting which field is which, click “OK”, you can then select a template (basic is all we have right now) and generate your pages. After generating your pages, save them! Do this by clicking the save button and navigating to a folder where you want to save the pages.

The software creates 3 php pages for you (as well as css and images).

  • register.php – The register page (i.e. page with the autoresponder form on it)
  • regsuccess.php – The success page (i.e. page with the unlock code on it)
  • already.php – The already subscribed page (i.e. page to send people if they are already on the list).

You can (should) rename these pages for security reasons. The register.php page must be the location of the register page (which you set in screen 3).

The “already subscribed” page is displayed in the form code, so it is not secure to redirect people who are already subscribed to your list directly to the success page. However, you may in some circumstances want to do this. If you want to send people who are already subscribed to the list, directly to the success page, you must check the “Pass name and email address to already subscribed page” box. When you do this you will be asked to identify the “onlist” field when you check the form code.

You can also include an index.php page with your generated pages, either as a blank file or as a redirect. To do this, check the “include index.php” check box.

After saving your pages, you must upload them to your server before you test your application.

Autoresponder Setup

Setting up your autoresponder is easy, but it’s also easy to make a simple mistake and ruin everything! Set up your autoresponder before you start testing.

Your autoresponder must be capable of personalizing emails with “subscriber name” and “subscriber email address”.

Confirmed Subscription Page – Can be set as the “regsuccess.php” page (renamed to what ever you want to call it), but in order to do this, you **must** be able to personalize the page for each subscriber. If you cannot do this, all is not lost, as you should be able to personalize the first email sent.

Sending the Unlock Code in the First Email

The URL to each subscribers unlock code is

regsuccess.php?name=subscribername&email=subscriberemail

You can achieve this URL by adding personalisation tags to the URL in the email.

For example.

regsuccess.php?name={!name}&email={!email}

This would create a personalised link for every subscriber, displaying the unlock code for their subscriber details. Depending on which autoresponder service that you use, the tags to use will be different. Most autoresponder services allow you to do this, but if yours doesn’t then you cannot use it with Squeeze-U-Lator. Try Aweber.

Screen Five Create & Test

Not much to say about this screen. Click “create” to make your app and “test” to text it.

Remember, you can save your project in case you need to edit it later. Fully test your app and make sure everything is working correctly before telling the world about it! If you need additional help, support is here.
