I would like the contact to receive a welcome letter so the contact widget will not work for me. Is there another example I can use?
If anyone has any experience with wordpress and contact form 7 in particular that would be great.
This is the closet thing I could find about the respect form that might allow this to work?
I am not familiar with that particular area of Contact Form 7 however I do remember having issues with that plugin in the past. There is a plugin made by katz which will do everything you want with a simple plugin installation.
thanks for the response. Can you be more specific as to which plug in might work? There are a bunch. Is it the "modules" plug in? It speaks of hidden fields...but not sure how that would work?
How would you send those hidden fields in so that they are added to a constant contact list? An example would be great?
I see that they have a integration with gravity forms and constant contact, but I didn't see one for contact form 7. Seems liek that is what i need.
I went into a web-site that I have worked on in the past in regards to contact-form 7 and I am not seeing a familiar way of integrating this into constant contact. It would require a bit of modifying or a new plugin would be just as easy to create. You would be better suited to use the constant contact plugin for wordpress. It is made by Katz and even lets you have a form designer which will give you full control just like contact-form-7.
You can find more information about the plugin here.
Please let me know if this helps.
thanks for digging into that. I'm somewhat dis appointed in the options. I used contact form 7 as it has 4 million downloads and is the most popular form plugin for wordpress....and I use constant contact because you are the market leader for email marketing.
I have a lot of development around contact form 7 as the results are automatically parsed into my CRM system...so switching plugin's from a website side and CRM side would be challenging and have some costs to it.
The most likely scenario would be to switch to gravity forms and use the plug in as there is a connection between the gravity forms and constant contact/
the forms designer doesn't work for me because I need a date picker and that is a plugin for contact form 7. I don't believe the forms designer offers this as an option. I couldn't find it.
Is this an option for getting the form to work? Using this logic to get it to submit to constant contact?
Thanks for the input, I just was hoping for some better options. Gravity forms seems to be the best at this juncture, but requires a lot of rework on my end. I would like not to abandon contact form 7... and will await your reply
here is another post with the same concept.
