Here's an explanation of the form fields that matter:

Form Action

This is the URL for your form. It needs to have the form ID in it. If you're using old forms, here's the format:

https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/12345/subscribe.html

If you're using the new forms, here's the format:

https://app.convertkit.com/forms/12345/subscriptions

If you're unsure, the URL of your form will either have /forms/ or /landing_page/ in the address bar itself. You'll need to change "12345" to your specific form ID. You can find this by going to your form and looking at the URL. It will have the ID right in the URL.

E-Mail Field

For this, if you're using an old form, you just need to add this text:

email

If you have a new form, add:

email_address

First Name Field

Just add the following regardless of which form you have :

first_name

Last Name Field

Leave this one blank.

That's it! The other fields can be customized or left blank.

Setup a redirect

It's a good idea to setup a redirect to send your subscribers somewhere after submitting their email. This can be your preferred thank you page! 

If you're using a Legacy form created before July 1, 2018, you'll find the option by opening your form and going to Settings → Main Settings, in ConvertKit.

For forms created with the New Form Builder after July 1, 2018, open your form and click the single gear icon in the sidebar to see your form settings.
