Emma Integration with PopupAlly Pro

We're setting up PopupAlly Pro and their instructions tell us to do this:

"PopupAlly only needs the HTML code provided by the email service provider and it will handle the rest."
So, per this post in the forums, I created a basic signup form, opened the link in a new window and then viewed source and copied the form source code and pasted it into the settings form field inside PopupAlly Pro. I tried pasting all the code including the javascript as well as trying it without the javascript in the headers.

I imagine PopupAlly is supposed to parse the code, pull out relevant data (field names and post address, etc.). It finds the name and email fields, but that's as far as things go as far as working.

I can save the information, but then when I activate the optin form on the site and enter my email and name and click the submit button, absolutely nothing happens. Obviously, PopupAlly is not able to find the relevant information from the raw form code.

Here is a link to their instructions.

Is there something else we can do, other code that Emma have available, to get the plugin the information it needs so that we can add these styled and politely timed optin forms to our WordPress installation?

Thanks so much for your time and help!

Good morning TechShaman! Looking at the samples from their help pages on the varying email service providers, it looks like the code being provided is code which you would embed a form into a website. When you go to publish a signup form in Emma, the two options for embedding would be either the iframe or JavaScript code selections. I'm not certain how PopAlly Pro's system works of configuring that code, so I'd suggest reaching out to them with the code which is generated when publishing that signup form in Emma and see if they have further input. They should be able to determine if the code provided should work or provide some further insight as to what they need specifically.

Hopefully this helps, but please let me know if I can assist further.
