Constant Contact Forms makes it fast and easy to capture visitor information right from your WordPress site. Whether you’re looking to collect email addresses, contact info, event sign-ups, or visitor feedback, you can customize your forms with data fields that work best for you. Best of all, this plugin is available to all WordPress users, even if you don’t have a Constant Contact account.

 

Constant Contact Forms allows you to:

  • Create forms that are clear, simple, and mobile-optimized for every device.
  • Choose forms that automatically select the theme and style of your WordPress site.
  • Customize data fields, so you can tailor the type of information you collect.

BONUS: If you have a Constant Contact account, all new email addresses that you capture will be automatically added to the Constant Contact email lists of your choosing. Not a Constant Contact customer? Sign up for a Free Trial right from the plugin.

 

Constant Contact Forms requires a PHP version of 5.4 or higherand a WordPress version 4.0.0+. You will not be able to use if on a lower version. Talk to your system administrator or hosting company if you are not sure what version you are on.

 

Want to get more information?  Take a look at our listing in the Worpress plugin directory or the Constant Contact Marketplace.  Need some help with setup? Take a look at our FAQ here and see some screenshots below.  

 

Once you install the plugin, from your Dashboard, you will need to add a new form. Take a look at all of your different options:

Hello, my name is Samantha and I started working at Constant Contact in September of 2011 as a Customer Engagement Specialist assisting customers via phone, chat and email. I started on the Community and Social Media Support team in March of 2014. I am now an Administrator within the Community. Outside of work I am mostly spending time hanging out with my pets (1 dog and 2 cats), binge watching shows, or reading. I am always interested in learning more about our customers, how others use the Community and how we can help to make the Community better for our members.

Is this the only way to get the sign up form on a Wordpress site? the embed code won't load on a page on its own, but it loads in a social widget we have on our homepage -> http://www.institute.org

 

Is using this plugin the only way I can create a landing page for the signup form?

Is it possible to turn off email notifications on form capture?

Hello @ForFamilyHealth

 

I apologize for the delay in our response. This plugin was created specifically for people using Wordpress, so it may be a better option for your site. Have you tried the plugin? Since I am not familiar with Wordpress, I cannot tell you why the embed code will not work on a landing page. The only tidbit I have heard from others is that you will need to have a plugin installed that allows you to add/edit HTML; however, since you have the code in your social widget I am assuming you have something similar to that currently. I am sorry we could not be of more assistance. Hopefully, the plugin mentioned above will help.

 Hello @LisaB57

 

I do not see a way to turn off the email notifications at this time. This functionality was set because the plugin can be used if someone does not have a Constant Contact account, with the email being the only notification of sign ups. I would recommend posting this as feedback in the support forums on WordPress so that our development team can track the requests for changing this feature.
