inline sign up form has word "null" instead of "marketing emails" in text

inline sign up form has word "null" instead of "marketing emails" in text

I created an inline sign up form that works great on my web site, and everything looks fine when I edit it on the Constant Contact web site.

 

However, when it is on my web site, the text that says

 

"By submitting this form, you are consenting to receive marketing emails from"

 

instead reads

 

"By submitting this form, you are consenting to receive null from".

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi @Bermuda_Business_Development_Agency 

 

Thanks for sharing these steps with our users here in the Community! Changing the Fine Print Text "marketing emails" to just "emails" in your Organization Information settings like this and deactivating/reactivating the inline form is the workaround we are currently recommending.

I am having the same problem. I note that in "Manage My Settings" under "Organization Information" there is a field "Fine Print Text" which is the variable null is pointing to. The default says "marketing emails." I changed it to "informational emails" but there was no effect. Seems like this should be a quick fix.

Hi @WhyClimateChanges

I attempted to change this today as well, but I still see that my form reads as " you are consenting to receive null from..."

 

So this is still happening. 

Hi @KeithM1612 

 

I apologize for any confusion our previous response may have caused. Updating this "Fine Print Text" field in your Account Settings is not the solution for this experience. At this time we are still in the process of troubleshooting this footer change so a fix can be developed. We have added you to our queue to be notified when this resolution is created.

Any word on this?

Hi @DonaE 

 

Though this experience has not yet been resolved, there is a workaround we are suggesting. Have you tried the workaround share in this thread? Changing the Fine Print Text "marketing emails" to just "emails" in your Organization Information settings like this and deactivating/reactivating the inline form is the workaround we are currently recommending.

Hi

I have the same issue with a popup sign up form.

Please let me know when this is fixed.

Help desk was able to fix this by doing the following:

1. Go into "My Settings"

2. Under "organization information" click "edit organization information"

3. Update field with "emails"

4. Click save

5. Go into your inline form and select "Deactivate"

6. In that same form, click "Activate"
