[resolved] What to put in the "Newsletter form action" field (7 posts)

    Even after reading the page on how to configure this plugin, I'm not sure what to put in the "Newsletter form action" field. Where do I find that information?

    I am using iContact.

    Thanks!

    Get a sample sign-up form that you would normally embed in your website (plain HTML). Take a look at the <form> tag and look for the action attribute.

    If you can't figure it out, post the sign-up form embed code here and I (or someone else) will help you out in a matter of seconds.

    Kind regards, Danny.

    <style type="text/css">
    .link,
    .link a,
    #SignUp .signupframe {
    	color: #fcfcfc;
    	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	font-size: 13px;
    	}
    	.link,
    	.link a {
    		text-decoration: none;
    		}
    	#SignUp .signupframe {
    		border: 1px solid #000000;
    		background: #000000;
    		}
    #SignUp .signupframe .required {
    	font-size: 10px;
    	}
    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://app.icontact.com/icp/loadsignup.php/form.js?c=910640&l=3978&f=539"></script>
    <span class="link"><a href="http://www.icontact.com">Email Marketing</a> You Can Trust</span>

    That's the code. "http://app.icontact.com/icp/loadsignup.php/form.js?c=910640&l=3978&f=539" is the part that looks like what I need, but when I try it out, I don't receive a confirmation email that an address has been added to my newsletter list. So, it doesn't appear to work.

    The Email identifier I have is "fields_email"

    Use the following settings:

    Configuration settings:

    Form action: http://app.icontact.com/icp/signup.php
    Email ID: fields_email

    Additional data (name : value):

    redirect : http://www.icontact.com/www/signup/thanks.html
    listid : 5590
    specialid:5590 : LV5V
    clientid : 910640
    formid : 539
    reallistid : 1
    doubleopt : 0

    You can probably get rid of some of the additional data pairs but if you include all you are surely good to go!

    Let me know how that worked for you. :)
