Constant Contact Signup Form Generator (CCSFG)

by Administrator on ‎03-25-2011 09:39 AM

The purpose of this form generator utility is to allow Constant Contact customers to generate and implement a more-customized and self-hosted signup form.  While some of our customers have the resources to develop a custom integration with our API, many lack the programming skills or time necessary to develop a signup form from scratch. This easy-to-use utility requires only basic HTML knowledge and web server access and does not require any knowledge of our API or server-side programming.  If you've been directed to use our API because our existing Join My Mailing List functionality does not serve your needs, this custom form generator is a great solution.

 

This utility allows the following customizations:

  • Select any or all Interest Lists for signup
  • Display or Hide Interest Lists from visitor
  • Select from all available fields of contact information to gather (First Name, Company, Address, etc...)
  • Customize names of Custom Fields 1-15 as they are displayed to the visitor
  • Specify landing pages after the customer signs up
  • Stylize the form generated by this utility to match your website's style

We hope you find this utility useful, and please let us know if you have any feedback on the Support Forums.

 

Please be aware that due to security concerns, the sign up form generator will add new contacts to your account but will not update existing accounts

We provide these sample codes to demonstrate our API's capabilities and use cases, but they are provided as is, without any guarantees that they will work in all system configurations and different versions of software. We have tested them in our environments and they worked for us, but we expect you to have proper technical knowledge to address any system or coding issues that arise from using these sample codes.
