We strongly recommend the use of our "Sign Up Form Generator" to create the form you publish to your website because:
It is the easiest way to integrate AWeber with your website
It is most likely to work without error
For these reasons, barring any exceptional circumstance, you should use the "Sign Up Form Generator" to create a form and provide the HTML to copy and paste to your website.
If there are design adjustments you'd like to make to the form to better fit the page you're publishing it to, when getting the HTML for your form, choose the "Raw HTML Version" available so you can make changes in your web design application much like you would any aspect of the design of your page.
Note: You can also uncheck the Include beautiful form styles box when you are getting the HTML of the form in order to just work with a basic, unformatted form to start.
If despite these reasons you wish to create your own form without the "Sign Up Form Generator", use the following criteria when designing it:
The name field visible to your subscribers should have "name" set as the "name" attribute. For example:
<input type="text" name="name" value="" />
The email field visible to your subscribers should have "email" set as the "name" attribute. For example:
<input type="text" name="email" value="" />
If you'd like to add any custom fields, they must first be setup in your AWeber account. You will then add them as fields with the name set to custom [Your Custom Field Name]. For example, a custom field of "Color" would use the following input:
