[resolved] Mailpoet is not playing well with enews (6 posts)

    Ive tried to setup mailpoet with enews using the tutorials available and I just can't figure it out? Ive grabbed the code from my mailpoet form, but when I copy and paste the form action, new subscribers are taken to a 404 page?
    Part of the problem is I have very little experience working with code, so I'm not sure whether this is a problem with way I'm using enews, or mailpoet?
    Any help would be awesome!
    Here's the code for my mailpoet form

    MailPoet integration is built into the plugin. With both activated, the widget will present an option to select which MailPoet list to use. No other settings are required.

    Thats what I thought...But obviously I'm doing something wrong. When someone tries to subscribe, It takes them to the thank you page I created for the "form action", but they never get the confirmation email and they are not added to my subscriber list?
    I tried to ask Mailpoet about this, (thinking the problem is with that plugin) and they told me to just use their widget.
    I really don't want to do that because their subscription form is butt-ugly.
    Any suggestions?

    I'm sadden to hear their response, since their developers wrote the code to add the integration in the first place :)

    Please leave the form action field blank and try again. The form action field will be used instead of the MailPoet options when it is entered, so your site is trying to process the submission against the thank you page.

    Great to hear that MailPoet is working with this plugin! I'm planning to use the two plugins together myself.
