This plugin is a HUGE FAIL!!!
By , for WP 4.4.2

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.

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.

No Valid Header
By , for WP 4.3

No valid header :/

bloated and terrible
By , for WP 4.2.4

never saw a working version of this plugin. tried to install it a few months back, got invalid headers.

tried to give it another shot, and it takes over the wordpress admin - unable to add media, or switch to visual or text mode - basically renders the backend unusable.

kind of a shame that constant contact would put their name on this as an "official" plugin. looks like it needs to be started over on a clean slate. why the hell are there so many files in this plugin?

unfortunately, i wanted to use this - https://wordpress.org/plugins/gravity-forms-constant-contact/ but its developed by the same guy...not even gonna waste my time.

Very poorly written, nonexistent support
By , for WP 4.2.2

This breaks any kind of visual editing with WordPress. For example, if you try to insert a link, no popup box comes up to actually insert the link.

It's disappointing that this is considered an "official" plugin when it doesn't even work.

Breaks Visual Composer

Breaks Visual Composer

Broke visual editing link button
By , for WP 4.2.2

Same as what elmundomagico reported. Broke the WP visual editors "insert link" functionality for my client. Removing from our site and looking for a suitable replacement.

It created a huge and costly waste of working time
By , for WP 4.2.1

It prevented the link button from working - actually, from appearing - whilst editing in visual mode, paralyzing my work. Had to involve three designers to get the issue sorted and deactivate all plugins on the website to see which one was causing issues. It was this plugin.
