When we share our newsletter via a link (the URL that is created by Constant Contact as the HTML version of the content), I see that there is a sign up button on the top right of the page. You can see an example here: 

https://conta.cc/3vUBu7D

 

Where on earth do those contacts go?! I can't seem to find a place to set the list associated with this sign up button. I don't currently have any sign-up forms, so I'm not even sure how to associate one with these auto-generated content links. 

 

Does anyone know where I can change the settings for these? Or maybe have a strategy for managing sign-ups via this method?

Hello @LPeckyno ,

 

The default button at the top is currently linked to the legacy landing page sign up form associated with your account. By default, it should put contacts into the "General Interest" list we provide at the time of account creation. However, if you've since deleted that list the contacts are likely just being added, but not to any specific lists. There is an active feature request for this that our devs are working on, so I've assigned your case to their queue. If and when they have an update regarding this default button, they'll make sure to notify you.

 

In the meantime, to update this legacy form, you'll want to go to the Sign-up Forms in the navigation bar. Then go to Basic Landing Pages, and click on the one titled Sign-Up Form. There you can select which of your lists is available for signees to sign up for, or just select a single list so all webpage signees to go to automatically.
