Can you set up more than one of the new email capture forms per site?

I am totally pumped about the beautiful new email capture forms! But I have a question. Is it possible to have different versions of the form active on the same website? For example, if someone visits our Mission Trips page I think it would be cool if visitors are invited to sign up for updates to our mission trip schedule. Or if they are reading our blog, they get the chance to sign up to receive our weekly blog in their inbox. I created two forms to play with this idea but the embed code is identical so one of them isn't working. Which makes me think it isn't possible? Of course I'm operating under the assumption that if they have signed up already they won't be asked to join anything else, otherwise it would get super annoying. Is this possible or am I stuck on a bad strategy?

Hi there! If you feel like your readers' interests are focused enough to sign up for two separate lists, then I say go for it! 

I did some testing and here's what I came up with. If you set these forms to only show on separate pages of your site, this should work! For example, I created two forms and used the same site URL but set one form to show on the first page of the site and the other form to show on the second page of the site. Both forms showed on the respective pages after adding the embed code to the site.

Give that a try and let me know if you run into any trouble!

Hello, 

I'm trying to create 2 lightbox forms for my website (one in French : one in english) but it is always exaclty the same script, therefore I can't put the two forms on the same site. 

Can you help me ? 
Thank you
Carole

Hey there Sentryo, 

I was going to pop in with a suggestion for you, but after checking out your site, it looks like you got it worked out.  

(for any others watching)

You would set up one lightbox per site and add each one to it's own site.  Since, in this case, the French site has it's own URL and code, you would load the lightbox code for the French form onto that site, and the code for the english form onto that site.  

Let me know if you have any followup questions!
