Embedding an Aweber inline capture form using Dreamweaver?

howdy,

In the lesson on embedding an Aweber inline capture form using Dreamweaver, Mark recommends using the HTML based form instead of the Java script form.

Im not using Dreamweaver yet, nor Xsitepro, just using Frontpage for now.

I embedded the javascript lead capture form cos Aweber says I cant track stats unless I use that one.

1) What are the Real advantages of one over the other?
2) I care about tracking stats, for testing. Is Aweber misstating?
3) Are there downfalls to the javascript capture forms I (we) should know?
4) Is there a better question I should be asking?

THANKS!!!
Mikel

Unless you want to check stats manually, then use the Javscript. Although you should be able to judge your sign up ratio by comparing the visitor number with the number of signups that you have.

True, to the former, but that would be a pain.

I was really asking because Mark was suggesting it so mayeb I was going to lose out on something ....

Thanks again Adrian.

PS I'll think of you while Im in Vegas next week... 19c on Sunday :wink:

It's just that the html is easier to edit in your browser. Whereas the js has to be edited from the aweber site, which I used to find a pain in the backside. Haven't tried it recently, might be different.

Thanks Sean.

Yeah you still have to edit the js on the backend, but I think the interface has changed since the training video. Maybe itll be a hassle later, but for now we only have one site/one newsletter.

Cheers
