    Hi there.

    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.



    Yes iContact has a HTML form. It has an automatic version which uses javascript (hence the need for this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/allow-javascript-in-posts-and-pages/) and manual version. I used the Config Extractor with both (just to see). The javascript version gave me a blank screen, but the manual version worked fine.
    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">

    I couldn’t tell from websta and ecaycayman’s post if NSU was being used in conjunction with the “allow javascript” plugin. I can’t get either way to work.

    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?

    Hi Shawna,

    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.

    ok. great. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    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.

    I didn’t have to install any javascript plugin. Did you use the config helper as shown in the tabs in this screen shot? I’m asking because your output looks different than mine and maybe something is hinky there.

    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).
