Support » Plugin: Constant Contact Forms » Average at best – needs some serious tuning up.

  • It connects fairly well – and has a reasonable feature set, but with 50 lists across 16 websites and installing this plugin on most of them, I have come across the following shortfalls that is requiring us to find another compatible plugin that will record data into CC:

    * Fields are extremely limited – can’t add anything but some generic first/last/phone/email and custom text field, but no dropdowns, selections, checkboxes, etc.

    * Address field hardcodes State/Zip into fields – as a Canadian company, we are forced to leave this here even though we’d love a toggle for Province/Postal Code, and I am sure other countries would agree.

    * Output limits how much flexibility you have to design – basically just forced to go down in a vertical single line form unless you seriously hack out some bad-syntax css rules to add columns.

    * No ability to customize the ‘agreement’ disclaimer at the bottom – we want it to be unique to each website, not just the same generic one for the main CC account.

    * I am personally ok with the bare visuals as it is really easy to override all the elements to design the form how you want, but could see why some users may find it too basic who don’t have much html/css knowledge.

    Hi @unsu

    Thank you for this feedback and thoughts you have after your experiences with the plugin. I am going to pass along the information here.

    What information did you have in mind for those dropdowns/selections/checkboxes? What would perhaps necessitate the change in input type? Asking so we can evaluate how we could potentially improve the plugin for future users.

    What sort of layout were you hoping to potentially achieve? just a multi-column version with some fields on the left and then others on the right?

    We do have a WordPress filter on the output of the disclosure text, but that is definitely more a developer-focused method than one that is handled via user interface. A lot is going to be set for compliance reasons, but I’ll check and see what could be customized.

    Thanks again.
