Active Campaign

To use Active Campaign please follow the instructions in this article  https://help.activecampaign.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000850870-Where-can-I-find-my-form-s-HTML-code-

Ensure The HTML form has submit buttons in it. The form should look something like this:

<form method="POST" action="https://XXXXXXXXXX.activehosted.com/proc.php">
<input type="hidden" name="u" value="NNN">
<input type="hidden" name="f" value="NNN">
<input type="hidden" name="s">
<input type="hidden" name="c" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="m" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="act" value="sub">
<input type="hidden" name="v" value="2">
<input type="text" name="firstname" placeholder="Type your first name">
<input type="text" name="email" placeholder="Type your email">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">
</form>

For the Input fields 

  • name field = firstname
  • email field = email

ARPReach

The ARPReach field names are not recognized by Post Gopher. To use them with  Post Gopher, you need to generate a form code without a recaptcha as Post Gopher will not work with their recaptcha code embedded.

The form you add to your Post Gopher  should look something like this

<form method="post" action="https://MYDOMAIN.com/arpreach/a.php/sub/n/LIST_ID">
<input type="text" name="email_address">
<input type="text" name="name">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Subscribe">
</form>


Infusionsoft

To use Infusionsoft please follow the instructions in this article   https://help.infusionsoft.com/userguides/campaigns-and-broadcasts/campaign-goals/create-a-web-form.  You need to generate the most basic opt-in form you can inside Infusionsoft - name, email and submit only. 

  • No other fields, eg phone, address, etc
  • No image/logo/social sharing/spacer/divider/etc
  • No header/footer, no label positioning
  • No formatting - that is done in Post Gopher 
  • No captcha/recaptcha
  • NO "Thank-you Page" - be sure to use "Web Address" with redirection to the URL of your choice

Please follow Step 13 to get the code.  Be sure to choose HTML Code (Unstyled).

The code should have no <script> tags as these will give rise to an error message.  Your code should look close to this:

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="https://qw116.infusionsoft.com/app/form/process/c1f89daf2de3e9ecb2f87821d2fabb47" class="infusion-form" method="POST">
<input name="inf_form_xid" type="hidden" value="c1f89daf2de3e9ecb2f87821d2fabb47" />
<input name="inf_form_name" type="hidden" value="Your Goal Name" />
<input name="infusionsoft_version" type="hidden" value="1.65.0.53" />
<input class="infusion-field-input-container" id="inf_field_FirstName" name="inf_field_FirstName" type="text" />
<input class="infusion-field-input-container" id="inf_field_Email" name="inf_field_Email" type="text" />

</form>
