nested OPT in Box problems

Hi all (Mark), I'm working my way through affilorama 2 as quickly as I can but I am having an annoying problem. If i take the raw html from aweber web forms and plonk it into my site then everything works. If I nest it inside a table as per Marks video then it looks fine (after a lot of fiddling) but doesn't work. I'm using XSITEPRO 2 and I really would like to get this sorted as the opt in looks awful otherwise. If anyone can point me in the direction of a decent pop up window (with customisable delay) which I can integrate with Aweber and use with XSITEPRO, I would really appreciate it. I don't know any html but I am computer literate. Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Greg

Hi Greg,

sounds like you may be getting the tags mixed up for the form when your putting it in the table which causes the form not to work - does the form send the details when yo hit the submit button? If you would like to post the html source code of the form in the table, we could have a look at it for you...

As far as pop-ups go.. I'd suggest you check out our Newsletter Pop-up Generator tool that some of the guys here put together. Its not without its technicalities but definitely makes it "easy" to create pop ups like this.

Hope that helps, and again, if you want to post your troublesome code we can have a look.

Cheers,

Paul.

Im running into the same problem I think. I made my newsletter box posted the html code, into my site everything looks great! I published it still looks great but when you enter your info and click sign up nothing happens at all. Don't know whats going on. I have followed everything word for word I think, even deleted it and tried it again no luck.
Here is the code:

<center>
<form method="post"
action="http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl">
<input value="1778538582"
type="hidden"
name="meta_web_form_id"> <input type="hidden"
name="meta_split_id"> <input value="zit-begone"
type="hidden"
name="unit"> <input id=
"redirect_e248b96886cae5426631c40bed7d40e6"
value=
"http://www.aweber.com/form/thankyou_vo.html"
type="hidden"
name="redirect"> <input type="hidden"
name="meta_redirect_onlist"> <input type="hidden"
name="meta_adtracking"> <input value="1"
type="hidden"
name="meta_message"> <input value="from"
type="hidden"
name="meta_required"> <input value="0"
type="hidden"
name="meta_forward_vars">
</form><img style="WIDTH: 1px; HEIGHT: 1px"
border="0"
src=
"http://forms.aweber.com/form/displays.htm?id=jOzsHKzMHKwcTA==">
</center>

<center>
<table style=
"BORDER-BOTTOM: red 3px dashed; BORDER-LEFT: red 3px dashed; WIDTH: 153px; HEIGHT: 202px; BORDER-TOP: red 3px dashed; BORDER-RIGHT: red 3px dashed"
border="0"
cellspacing="0"
cellpadding="5">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td valign="top"
align="left">
&nbsp;

<table border="0">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td colspan="2">
<center>
<div align="center">
<strong>Yes! I want
to claim my 7-part
Acne No More Mini
Course!</strong>
</div>
</center>
</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Name:</td>

<td><input style="WIDTH: 90px"
name="name"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Email:</td>

<td><input style="WIDTH: 90px"
name="from"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td colspan="2"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td colspan="2"
align="center">
<input value="Sign me up!"
type="submit"
name="submit"></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>&nbsp;
</center>

Any help would be a blessing, I have spent over 6 hrs trying to fix this.

Thanks

Hi Jeff

Your </form> tag needs to be at the end - below the name and email address and sign me up submit button ...

Hey Guys
just want to thank you for posting, I was getting so frustrated.
removing the </form> from the middle to the end worked for me.

I am very grateful
