Integrating Constant Contact lists into Community Builder Registration Form


Integrating Constant Contact lists into Community Builder Registration Form

Currently we are using Joomla 1.5 to manage our site and our registration form was built using Community Builder 1.2.1. The form that Constant Contact offers is not sophisticated enough for our needs. We were going to try to use the Yanc mailing list plugin, but found it to be very unstable and not fully supported in the version of CB that we are using. We have since opened an account with Constant Contact, but have found the integration of the mailing list signup into our existing registration form a little involved. If you take a look at the bottom of the page at the following link you will see the section of the registration form that I'm referring to:


We want to replace the mailing lists at the bottom with the Constant Contact mailing lists that we've set up. There's a third party plugin available that appears to be perfect for this however we need to offer our users the ability to sign up for multiple lists and the plugin only offers one list for users to choose when subscribing. Aside from this we also require a feature that would update the information in Constant Contact whenever a user changes their information through our site or unsubscribes to a list.

We're not really too sure where to begin with using the API to do this. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
