Constant Contact Widget

Constant Contact plugin that adds a really lightweight, clean and simple widget that collects email addresses to a Constant Contact list.

Can I use this plugin without a Constant Contact account?

This widget is designed to add a email address to your Constant Contact list, so you will need a Constant Contact account.

Using the Constant Contact Widget shortcode

Use the following shortcode:

[constantcontactwidget grp="constant contact list name" btn="button text" msg="success message"]

If you wish to also ask for the first and last name, add nam="1" like this:

[constantcontactwidget nam="1" grp="constant contact list name" btn="button text" msg="success message"]

If you wish to require that the user checks a checkbox for consent to be added to your Constant Contact mailing list, add req="your consent message", for example:

[constantcontactwidget nam="1" grp="constant contact list name" btn="button text" msg="success message" req="I agree to be added to the mailing list"]

If you like to redirect the visitor to another page after a successful submission with the Constant Contact Widget, simply place the url in the msg attribute instead of a message.

How do I style the Constant Contact widget?

The Constant Contact widget is contained within a form element with the class "constantcontactwidget_form".

Using your favourite browser developer tool, see what styles your theme is applying to the widget, and add the class ".widget_sf_widget_constantcontact" to increase the priority of your style to target the Constant Contact widget.

Does the Constant Contact Widget collect and monitor stats?

Nope. Constant Contact Widget is designed to do a simple thing well, and do it efficiently.

How does the Constant Contact widget help combat spam?

It uses javascript to submit the form via Ajax, the HTML form element doesn't expose an action or method. This makes it harder for a automated crawler to post spam via the form, as most crawlers do not run javascript.
