[resolved] Mailing list not active (8 posts)

    I cant seem to get the form to function. When testing it goes to a mailing list not active Aweber notification.

    Aweber says there is a problem with the plugin, as they have tested using the standard forms on their end and everything works fine.

    Any of the sub-pages has the form on the top right.
    http://gill-media.com/how-to-create-google-analytics-account-views/

    Another issue that seemed to resolve itself after many entries, is the hidden fields kept erasing when I hit save on the widget. That has seemed to self-correct.

    Please advise what I am missing. Thank you

    Checking out the source on your site, it looks like the hidden fields may not be right.

    The source on your site is showing:

    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="media-mrkt”
    input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://gill-media.com/newsletter/"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="media-mrkt_form"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value=“name,from">

    which is just one long tag. It should be something like:

    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="media-mrkt”>
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://gill-media.com/newsletter/">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="media-mrkt_form">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value=“name,from">

    Can you try that?

    Thats weird! I copy pasted with the close tags.

    Anyways I manually tried to add the close tags, hit save and they disappeared again?

    Suggestions?

    btw - thanks for the really quick reply!

    Can you paste here what you're using in the widget? I tried what I had above and it saved without issue.

    There are some basic filters to only allow certain html tags in that space, but <input> elements are always allowed, so not sure quite yet what would be going on.

    Cheers!

    This is prior to pushing save on the widget

    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="90523651" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="media-mrkt”>
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://gill-media.com/newsletter/">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="media-mrkt_form">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value=“name,email">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="0">

    Then after SAVE this is what it converts to;

    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="90523651" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="media-mrkt”
    input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://gill-media.com/newsletter/"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="media-mrkt_form"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1"
    input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value=“name,email">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="0">

    There were a couple of "smart quotes" in your test. Check out the one at the end of "media-mrkt" and at the beginning of "name,email".

    Smart quotes aren't technically quotation marks (as seen by a server processing the input), so they're throwing a wrench in the works.

    Try this:

    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="90523651" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="media-mrkt">
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://gill-media.com/newsletter/">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="media-mrkt_form">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="name,email">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="0">
