Magic Action Box
Constant Contact HTML won't 'process' (9 posts)

    I have followed instructions to the letter! When I try to do the simplest thing by pasting the opt-in box html code directly from Constant Contact and hit 'process', this is what I get:

    <>
    <div class="clear"></div>

    This seems like a great plugin, so I hope it's somehow operator error, but I'm getting a but frustrated. =(.

    Please help!

    Not linking to my site because this issue is purely backend at this point.

    Hi lorinm,

    That usually occurs when using the Javascript version of the form from your provider rather than the Raw HTML version. Make sure that you are using the HTML version. It should look something like this (This is just demo code):

    <!-- BEGIN: Constant Contact Basic Opt-in Email List Form -->
    <div align="center">
    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" bgcolor="#ffffff" style="border:0px solid #ffffff;">
    <tr>
    <td align="center" style="font-weight: bold; font-family:Arial; font-size:12px; color:#000000;">Join Our Mailing List</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td align="center" style="border-top:0px solid #ffffff">
    <form name="ccoptin" action="http://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/d.jsp" target="_blank" method="post" style="margin-bottom:2;">
    <input type="hidden" name="llr" value="qeceo7gab">
    <input type="hidden" name="m" value="1106908416144">
    <input type="hidden" name="p" value="oi">
    <font style="font-weight: normal; font-family:Arial; font-size:12px; color:#000000;">Email:</font> <input type="text" name="ea" size="20" value="" style="font-size:10pt; border:1px solid #999999;">
    <input type="submit" name="go" value="Go" class="submit" style="font-family:Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size:10pt;">
    </form>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <!-- END: Constant Contact Basic Opt-in Email List Form -->
    <!-- BEGIN: SafeSubscribe -->
    <div align="center" style="padding-top:5px;">
    <img src="https://imgssl.constantcontact.com/ui/images1/safe_subscribe_logo.gif" border="0" width="168" height="14" alt=""/>
    </div>
    <!-- END: SafeSubscribe -->

    <!-- BEGIN: Email Marketing you can trust -->
    <div align="center" style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:10px;color:#999999;">
    For Email Marketing you can trust
    </div>
    <!-- END: Email Marketing you can trust -->

    Hi prosulum,

    I'm looking for a great developer to help me improve a plugin. Let me know how I can reach you so we can talk more (If you're willing to work with me).

    Sorry, this is the only way I can send you a message.
    Thanks,

    Alex

    Thanks so much for your response!

    This is the code I used (I don't know enough to know java v. html (sorrrrry!!!), but I did call Constant Contact to verify that this WAS the raw html and NOT java, and they said it was raw html.

    Maybe you can set me straight?

    Here is the code I pasted into Magic Action Box:

    <!-- BEGIN: Constant Contact Email List Form Button --><div align="center">Send me FREE training!<!-- BEGIN: Email Marketing you can trust --><div id="ctct_button_footer" align="center" style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:10px;color:#999999;margin-top: 10px;">For Email Marketing you can trust.</div></div>

    Ahh... That is HTML. But it's HTML for a button that links to a form. (This one http://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/d.jsp?llr=redr5elab&p=oi&m=1111489023121&sit=kkgnnolhb&f=74e65fb0-5302-4ae4-b246-d56ae25c443b)

    Is there a way in constant contact to generate HTML for the form itself and not for a button that leads to a form? The HTML would look like the demo one I posted up top (really long).

    Crap. They said that's the only code they offer for opt-in boxes =(

    What would you recommend at this point? Can I mess with it somehow to make it work? I'm curious how most users make it happen with Constant Contact...

    Hi Lorin, I think one way other constant contact users make it happen is by using the constant contact form generator as in this thread here https://community.constantcontact.com/t5/Developer-Support-ask-questions/HTML-code-for-a-simple-subscription-form/td-p/82697

    but, I don't really know where that is though.

    Another option to create html form for constant contact is via http://www.ccquick.com/ I think the user in that thread above this this too.

    Thank you so much! If I can't make this work I literally think I want to switch providers!!
