Custom field crosswalk

I am new to this so this has been challenging. I added a custom field to my Custom Contact contact list. It is ‘Instagram handle’. I have Wordpress and WPforms and I even upgraded to the pro version but it doesn’t show an option to link to anything but standard fields. I want to capture this information in my website. Is this possible? Maybe a different plugin? Thanks for any help.

Hello @FirstNameL78605,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API. Typically we work directly with those developers on issues surrounding creating integrations and interfacing with our API. 

 

Based on WPForms' documentation it looks like they don't support custom fields at this time, only the standard Constant Contact fields. Just in case, below is a link to their documentation which show the fields they support.

I'm sorry but I don't have any other plugins that I can thank of at this time. If you do want an inline form on your website where you can collect custom field information I would recommend using our inline form instead. Below is a link to documentation which goes into further detail on our inline forms.
