[resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7 & Constant Contact] Can't see anything... (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    Maybe I'm totally misunderstanding something, but I can't get this to work. Here's what I got:

    - ConstantContact plugin installed
    - Contact7 installed
    - This plugin (Contact Form 7 & Constant Contact) installed, registration accepted from CC

    When I open the "Contact" sidebar menu and create/save my form, there's a default Contact7 code in there:

    <p>Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name] </p>
    etc, etc...

    Below that, it asks if I want to integrate with ConstantContact, which is checked, and the selected list is checked too.

    Below that, there's a list of fields - presumably what I want to show in the form.

    BUT there is NO GUIDE to what to do there. And THAT is my problem.

    If I enter the Contact7 shortcodes there, say, [your-name] under "First Name" field, or if I try simply [first-name] - and so on - I get NOTHING when I preview my post.

    If I leave the original Contact7 shortcodes, the form DOES show up.

    So the question is: why?

    And also: is there somewhere I can look up which shortcodes to use for which field?

    And: assuming that I'm supposed to create the CC form UNDER the "integrate" checkbox, and NOT in the Contact7 section above - why does it not show up?

    I hope this makes sense. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks:) paul

    The "Constant Contact API" plugin isn't required. All that's required is the Contact Form 7 plugin and this "Contact Form 7 & Constant Contact" plugin.

    The list of fields is where you map the Contact Form 7 fields to how you want to send the data to Constant Contact. I think if you check out this image, you'll understand how it works: http://s.wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7-newsletter/screenshot-2.jpg
