Contact Enhanced Documentation

Description

With the Constant Contact Form Field integration, you can now sign up any user to a Constant Contact list with a few simple steps. Constant Contact is a field and does not display Constant Contact fields, so additional CE fields need to be assigned to the category that match Constant Contact (Surname, Name, Email, City and State). This way Contact Enhanced will submit the fields to Constant Contact;

Requirements

  1. Have a Constant Contact account and at least one list created
  2. Have a Mashery account (explained later);

Constant Contact Field Type

Usage

Select Components → Contact Enhanced → Form Fields from the drop-down menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation, then Select Constant Contact from the Form Field's Type Select list;

Choose a category for your Form Field, then Save the changes in order to load the Constant Contact Form Fields Specific parameters. You may also want to set the status to "Unpublished" so it doesn't immediately take effect on a live site. And then once the remaining steps below are complete, set the status back to "Published".
