How do I include which custom fields labels are which custom field values in my Constant Contact Account?

You can add this to your active theme or custom plugin: add_filter( 'constant_contact_include_custom_field_label', '__return_true' );. Note: custom fields have a max length of 50 characters. Including the labels will subtract from the 50 character total available.

Which account level access is needed to connect my WordPress account to Constant Contact?

You will need to make the connection to Constant Contact using the credentials of the account owner. Campaign manager credentials will not have enough access.

Error: Please select at least one list to subscribe to.

Some users are experiencing errors when upgrading from an older version of the plugin. If you are receiving an error “Please select at least one list to subscribe to” on your form submissions we recommend “Sync Lists with Constant Contact”, this can be found in your admin dashboard Contact Form > Lists. If problem still persists we recommend recreating the form from scratch.

It does not work. I disabled ALL plugins, changed the theme, and did both at the same time. All I got was a blank screen.

The 2.0.1 version lost all of our lists. They cannot be re-synced. And we cannot create new lists from within WordPress. Without connections to lists, this plugin is fatally broken. Reverting back to v1

I would like to see more rich form design, such as embedding field labels in the field, placement of the submit button, inline with text instead of always on a new line. I would like to be able to use a single line form in my website footer, but you don't seem to have one and your smallest form expands the footer unacceptably. I understand the need for your disclaimer, but perhaps it could be minimized. Your depiction of my lists in the dashboard is incomplete. Fortunately the list of lists for a subscription form is sufficiently complete.

The forms feature that purportedly integrates with WP does only one thing well: capture an email address and put it in whatever CC email list you'd like. What it does not do well is capturing other information (i.e., a custom text field for comments, or a custom text field that may be requesting specific information like "how many adults" for an RSVP-style form). CC support told me I was not using the "official WP CC plugin," which I am! The issue I saw had to do with the opt in check off box that shows at the bottom of the fields. There are now 3 scenarios that I have noticed through testing: 1. If I remove the opt in check off box (as a feature at the bottom of the form) created in the Constant Contact plug in, I receive the email with all the form entries. 2. If I leave the opt in check off box on the form, fill out the form but do not click the check off box, I get nothing (no email with the entries, and of course no opt in for the subscriber). 3. If I leave the opt in check off box on the form, fill out the form and also click the opt in check off box, I get no email with the entries, but I do get an opt in for the subscriber. I am removed the optional check off box because it fouls up the whole purpose of my RSVP form (to gather entered info). What I asked CC but get not get a response, was if the entry data is stored somewhere either within WP or CC. I ask about the possibility of stored data (stored entries) because now I fear that site visitors have been entering data into the form that I have never received. If you know if form entries are stored anywhere, let me know. They do not show anywhere in the CC contact record.
