How to make a double confirmation page

The NationBuilder 'Email consent' documentation says that a Single opt-in is required in order to send folks an email blast but that a "Double opt-in" is even better. A double opt-in is when someone takes action on your site and gets an autoresponse email that requires them to click a link to confirm their email address. This functionality is not built into NationBuilder but can be added using a custom signup page.

1. Create a new signup page in your website by going to Site > "+ New Page" and choosing "Signup" as the page type. You can leave the page status as "Unlisted" because users will have a direct link to the page.

2. Navigate to the "Template" tab of this page and remove all of the code. You should then paste the following code into the Template and click "Save and publish changes":

 -SPLIT-

NOTE: The last line in the above code shows as </scr\ipt> but should be </script>.

 


 

3. In the auto-response email templates for each page on your website, you should include a link to this page with "?email={{ recipient.email }}" appended to the end of it.


For example: 

Thanks for signing up! To confirm that you'd like to get emails from us, please click here: <a href="brianpalmer.nationbuilder.com/confirmation?email={{ recipient.email }}">CONFIRM EMAIL</a>

 

4. Adjust the "Signup settings" tab so that people who fill out this signup form are tagged with a specific tag, such as "Double opt in". From here on out, you should make sure to only send email blasts to people with this tag.

 


 

Users will now be prompted so confirm their email address after taking action on your page.
