Simple Constant Contact

Description

The Simple Constant Contact Plugin is a quick and easy plugin to interface with your constant contact account. It takes the visitor’s name and email and allows it to send that information directly to your Constant Contact account. Set up is easy. Just follow the instructions in the admin menu and you’re on your way. The UI was left raw with class and id tags so you can apply your own styling to match your current theme.

shortcode function is supposed to return a string

currently says this:
————————-

function simpleCC_display_form() {
// test to see if all the settings are correct
if ($this->ready()) {
?>
<div class=”simpleCC_plugin”>
<form class=”simpleCC_form” id=”simpleCC_form” method=”post”>
<label for=”simpleCC_fname”>First Name:<input type=”text” id=”simpleCC_fname” name=”simpleCC_fname” /></label>
<label for=”simpleCC_lname”>Last Name:<input type=”text” id=”simpleCC_lname” name=”simpleCC_lname” /></label>
<label for=”simpleCC_email”>Email:<input type=”email” id=”simpleCC_email” name=”simpleCC_email” /></label>
<button id=”simpleCC_submit” type=”submit” name=”simpleCC_submit” value=”simpleCC_submit_successful”>Submit</button>
</form>
</div>
<?php
}
}
——————————–
but should say this:
———————————–
function simpleCC_display_form() {
// test to see if all the settings are correct
if ($this->ready()) {

return ‘<div class=”simpleCC_plugin”>
<form class=”simpleCC_form” id=”simpleCC_form” method=”post”>
<label for=”simpleCC_fname”>First Name:<input type=”text” id=”simpleCC_fname” name=”simpleCC_fname” /></label>
