Email OptIn Form Issues
Posted by on 18 February 2011 01:32 PM

These are the most common solutions for configuring the opt in form to work with Contest Burner:

1. Please make sure you have the current version of Contest burner, 2.1 or newer. There were some compatibility issues with earlier versions and they can cause problems with the aweber form. These issues have been fixed with the newer version.

2. Required fields:
input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="name,email" is incorrect.
Your form can have a required field, but it can only be the email field, so make sure the above line just says:
input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="email" and doesn't include the name.

3. There can be an issue if you are using custom page redirects for the thank you page or on-list values:
input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.domain.com/thank-you-page/"
input type="hidden" name="meta_redirect_onlist" value="http://www.domain.com/already-subscribed/"

Contest Burner is programmed to over write these settings so that the person is just put back onto the contest page so they can see their contest links. Redirecting them to another page would be confusing. Using the custom pages can cause problems, so it is best to keep the default setting in your web form.

4. When gettng HTML code from Aweber make sure not to check the Facebook box, under settings labeled Facebook integration "enable Facebook registration form"
