I could poke my eyes out! Why does iContact have to make things so hard?
I went here http://dannyvankooten.com/571/configuring-newsletter-sign-up-the-definitive-guide/ and followed the instructions. I completed the sign up form on the front end and am redirected to http://www.icontact.com/www/signup/thanks.html but the email didn’t end up in the iContact database.
So…I went to the Support Forum and websta and ecaycayman had the following suggestions (from a year ago).
And just paste the code that iContact provides into a post/Page.
The form action is: https://app.icontact.com/icp/signup.php
Six names and values are required:
specialid:XXXX (where X represents a number)
I did all of the above and added the Name/Value for the reallistid as well, but I still get the same redirect with no email in the iContact database.
What am I doing wrong?
This is the code iContact gives
<form method="post" action="https://app.icontact.com/icp/signup.php" name="icpsignup" id="icpsignup####" accept-charset="UTF-8" onsubmit="return verifyRequired####();" >
Maybe I don’t have the form action correct.
I’d have to look into iContact as it’s been a while since I implemented them with Newsletter Sign-Up. I’ll let you know.
Does iContact have a HTML form you can simply embed on your website? If so, try using the configuration extractor as well.
It gave me the following:
<form method="post" action="https://app.icontact.com/icp/signup.php" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.icontact.com/www/signup/thanks.html"> <input type="hidden" name="errorredirect" value="http://www.icontact.com/www/signup/error.html"> <input type="text" name="fields_email"> <input type="text" name="fields_fname"> <input type="text" name="fields_lname"> <input type="hidden" name="listid" value="#######"> <input type="hidden" name="specialid:#######" value="####"> <input type="hidden" name="clientid" value="#####"> <input type="hidden" name="formid" value="####"> <input type="hidden" name="reallistid" value="1"> <input type="hidden" name="doubleopt" value="0"> <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"> </form>
I also tried Easy iContact. That plugin would send the name and email to the iContact database, but I couldn’t get the form layout to change by using the CSS the developer suggested. I posted on the Easy iContact forum last week, but no one has responded. Which is why I asked around and heard about your plugin.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Do you have any suggestions of things I could try?
Sorry, had no time yet to look into this. A little busy with work and my study.
I’ll try to look into it later this week and will keep you updated.
I don’t know if this will help, Shawnaturtle, but I was able to get the configurations correct by using config helper. The widget/sidebar form is working well. My test signup email addy showed up in IC when I logged in and checked the most recently added subscribers.
Can you show screen shots of your configurations? Maybe that will help us figure out what happened.
Danny: Is the widget supposed to show a signup form that looks like the signup form we style in IC? Because mine doesn’t at all; it’s missing signup fields (lname and business).
