This documentation was modified on 12/15/2017, to comply with the latest changes by Constant Contact.

Embed your Constant Contact signup form into your website to allow customers to easily sign up for newsletters, coupons, event notifications, etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you have pasted the ‘Embed Code’ and saved, editing the block will strip the code.Therefore we recommend you save the code to a plain text (Notepad) file, in case you need it again.

OBTAIN YOUR EMBED CODE

Follow the instructions provided by Constant Contact to obtain the two ‘Embed Codes’ for the list you wish to create a signup form for on your website. Instructions can be found here: https://knowledgebase.constantcontact.com/articles/KnowledgeBase/18265-Create-a-Sign-Up-Form-with-the-new-sign-up-form-experience?lang=en_US

After following those instructions, you should have two sets of code, a 'Universal' code and an 'Inline' code, which you will need to place in 2 separate blocks on your site.

CREATE YOUR FIRST CONSTANT CONTACT BLOCK

Navigate to: Structure > Blocks > Add Block

  1. Fill in the ‘Block description’: Example: Constant Contact Universal Code
  2. Select the ‘Source’ button in the editor
  3. Paste your Universal embed code into the white body area
  4. Adjust your Visibility settings as you would like them
  5. Save
  6. Scroll through the list to find your newly created block and set the region to 'Footer'.
  7. Save Blocks

That places the universal code behind the scenes, you will not see the block actually appear in the footer.

CREATE YOUR SECOND CONSTANT CONTACT BLOCK

  1. Fill in the ‘Block description’: Example: Constant Contact Inline Code
  2. Select the ‘Source’ button in the editor
  3. Paste your Inline embed code into the white body area
  4. Adjust your Visibility settings as you would like them
  5. Save
  6. Scroll through the list to find your newly created block and set the region to the area where you would like the form to appear
  7. Save Blocks

You have now created and placed your Constant Contact block on your website and customers can begin utilizing the sign-up option.
