Is there a way to connect Emma to Squarespace so people can sign up for my emails and automatically receive the confirmation email? Right now there's a form on my site, but it comes to me and I add them to the list. Consequently, most people on my list show as not having opted in. =[ Is there an easy way to fix this?

Hi! It sounds like maybe you're using Squarespace's default form, so it isn't tied to your Emma account. I know I've talked about this before with one of our developers -- I use that form on my Squarespace site, too -- but I can't remember what our resolution was. I've sent him a message to refresh my memory, and I'll fill you in here once I get the news. :)

As for your contacts showing as not having confirmed their opt-in, that isn't problematic; you can still send to them. Check out the information in this conversation, and let me know if you have any questions from there.

Hello again! Just heard back from the developer: Squarespace is a closed system, which means they aren't open to letting us integrate with them. However, I'd wager our upcoming email capture forms will work on Squarespace just as they will anywhere, if you'd like to give them a go once they're released!

Thanks Katie! I listened in on the live cast so I'm pretty excited about that. I'll keep doing it this way until that feature is released. =]

Hi - You can embed html into Squarespace, but the code for Emma's sign up forms doesn't work. This is becoming a huge issue for me. I will likely switch from Emma because of it. Can you please provide an actual solution, rather than just blaming the other platform???? I need a solution asap.

Hi Rhia -- Squarespace is still closed to integrations, but you can add our Classic, Lightbox or custom forms to your Squarespace website. We even have a technical services team that can implement the form for you! Let me know if you're interested, and I can connect you with that team. :)

HI Aubrey, 

We have help documentation here on our resource center for setting up LIGHTBOX forms and CLASSIC forms.  

If you would want someone from our Technical Services team to set that up for you, you can reach out to them at http://myemma.com/services .  They can get you a quote and work from there!  

Cheers!

Cool, so there in our Lightbox documentation, we have a link out to Squarespace's info on how to do a "Code Injection".  This is how you get the Lightbox form to work, you'll just need to grab the script code from your Lightbox and follow their instructions, making sure to put it in the footer section.  

As for Classic forms, you can get the code to publish your form there in the form editor by pressing "Publish this form" and grabbing the appropriate code to install on your site.  

If you're not sure where to put that code, or which code to use for how you want to your form to work, the best thing would be to discuss that with Squarespace, or reach out to our services team who can set it up for you for a small fee.
