I first want to say that while I’m much more technical than the average computer user, there are some Mautic concepts I don’t have down yet and I use words and phrases to express things that are not the “proper” nomenclature within Mautic.
I’m trying to integrate a Muatic form to an opt in box on my website using the form HTML.
For what it’s worth, my WordPress theme is OptimizePress 2.0.
I created a form in Mautic named “Newsletter Signup Sidebar”.
I then used the “Manual Copy” to copy the form HTML.
I then paste that form HTML into my WordPress theme where appropriate.
There are two URLs of interest.
- Within the form in Mautic I’ve specified the form Successful Submit Action should be a redirect to… http://zippe.biz/thank-you-for-joining-our-mailing-list/.
- The HTML code contains an “action” tag that specified a URL of… https://imu.mautic.com/form/submit?formId=2
When the action tag is set to… https://imu.mautic.com/form/submit?formId=2
After I hit the submit button, a new browser tab opens, the URL of https://imu.mautic.com/form/submit?formId=2 is loaded, and the page is blank.
However the lead record did get created.
As an experiment I manually changed the action tag to http://zippe.biz/thank-you-for-joining-our-mailing-list.
After I did that the redirect page loaded properly, but the lead record in Mautic did not get created.
I hope this makes sense.
I also created a screencast video showing the details, and you play it via the link below.

Am I doing something wrong?: And if so, what am I doing wrong?
Or is something not working right?
