Issue Incorporating a Vin65 Newsletter to my website


#1

Hello community members,

First time positing and sorry of this has been asked before. I’m having a issue trying to incorporate a Vin65 newsletter email sign up form on my wordpress. Below are the steps I took to try and add it.

1- Logged into Vin 65
2- Clicked on content editor in the navigation
3- Hovered over components and clicked on forms.
4- Created a form named newsletter, tied it to a contact (Newsletter), typed thank you message
5- On wordpress added the following js files to the theme:

<script src="http://assetss3.vin65.com/js/jquery-1.7.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>     
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://assetss3.vin65.com/js/vin65remotetools.1.0.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">vin65remote.form.form('https://burgesscellars.com/','newsletter');</script>

6- Added this html code into my footer <div v65remotejs="form"></div> and yet still no form shows up.

If instead of adding
<div v65remotejs="form"></div>

i add

<div id="v65-subscribeWidget">
	<form method="post">
		<input type="hidden" name="contactType" value="#attributes.contactType#" />
		<input type="text" name="email" value="Your Email Address">
		<button type="submit" class="defaultBtn"><span>Subscribe</span></button>
	</form>
</div>

Then the form shows up but when i input my email and click submit the page refreshes and nothing happens. I have tried to figure this issue out through this documentation.

It looks like your site is using SSL (https). Based on your code snippet you are loading the scripts in via http, which is causing them to be blocked.

If you change it to be https it should work:

<script src="https://assetss3.vin65.com/js/jquery-1.7.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>     
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://assetss3.vin65.com/js/vin65remotetools.1.0.js"></script>

Hopefully that helps! :slight_smile:
