Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

I hardly ever rate plugins, but I felt I needed to offset the bad ratings with a good rating here. There are a lot of people stating that the plugin did not work for them. However, they have made excellent progress. The plugin works better than any other Constant Contact I've tried (I've tried about 10 of the most popular ones). I have found only one minor issue with it where the preview block is visible above the signup form edit page (easy fix for the developer). However, I could get around that. I love this plugin because it doesn't require you to sign up for a third party account, you can add additional fields, use any signup list, and customize the redirect URL. There has obviously been a lot of work done to this plugin and I would encourage everyone to give it a good try and not pass it over because of the issues people had with it previously.

It works

It really works with wp 4.5.2 and php >= 5.3 (I have 5.6)
Thank you guys for this awesome plugin!

It's better than nothing.

Integration with Constant Contact was easy. The plugin's forms integrate reliably with all of your account's mailing lists (so far, no problems here). The form designer is pretty weak. Input fields are widget sized and you'll need to write custom CSS to get the forms to look acceptable on anything other than a sidebar. There are options for several Custom Fields in the form designer, but no way to map them to fields in your Constant Contact mailing list. The plugin has fields for home phone and work phone which sync nicely to CC, but there is no field for mobile phones (other than a custom field, which can not be mapped). If you absolutely need to add Constant Contact form integration to your site and you aren't picky about how it looks and don't have really demanding needs, this plugin will do. If you need any kind of real-world usability, though, you'll probably have to drop some cash on another premium plugin.

Missing features
By , for WP 4.4.2

If we needed to collect a minimal amount of data, this would work. But, such things as country, state/province, etc. choices from a drop-down list are not available for forms. In short, we cannot duplicate the signup form we already have at Constant Contact. This type of data needs to be "sanitized" this way in order to be useful. Going back to having visitors sign up off-site directly at Constant Contact. Uninstalled.

This plugin is a HUGE FAIL!!!

I just tried to add this plugin to my WordPress site and it couldn't even get past the API allow access page!

I called tech support and they told me that this was not even their plug in, that they do not support it, that they know NOTHING ABOUT IT!

Looking at this and other plug ins for Constant Contact I can only conclude that they DO NOT SUPPORT WORDPRESS.

If you are one of the 20 million users of WordPress you will need to migrate to another email marketing tool because this service does not support your website. They admitted it to me over the phone a moment age, they are not willing to support, nor understand the programming needed to support a WordPress install.

This is not just a FAILURE of the programming, it is a FAILURE of the company. Not only is this plug in not useable, the entire company is not useable. Time to drop them like a hot rock and go with another company. I have had success with MailChimp in the past, looks like I will be working with them from here on out, at least they care enough to write the software properly.

No one resposone

Checked the support and some of the issues are available more than a month. No response from author.

Works for Me
By , for WP 4.4

I'm a user not a developer and its been awhile since I did any comparison shopping but it's worked for me for a few years now without problem.

Doesn't work with Constant Contact Events with Payments
By , for WP 4.3.1

Installed and experienced immediate error. Extensive searching produced a support request here from 8 months ago the issue, which has still not be responded to, or addressed, so I don't hold much hope that my request from 3 days ago will be responded to.

Move along folks. Nothing here to see.

Best? Breaks the WP editor as soon as it is activated
By , for WP 4.3

Fresh WP install, no other plugins installed, cannot edit page/post content or access any of the editor controls as soon as it's activated.
