The recent WordPress 4.2.3 security release is affecting Marketo embedded forms.  WordPress is injecting code that comments out the line of the embedded code that loads the form.  This prevents the form from displaying on the page.

 

To correct this error, simply copy and paste the embedded code back onto the page using the Text Editor instead of the Visual Editor to prevent the code injection.

Marketo is strengthening our encryption protocols and following security best practices.

 

RC4 cypher used in TLS/SSL transactions is no longer considered s strong security protocol and will be gradually disabled on Marketo networking devices, starting July 20, 2015.

 

No interruption of Marketo SaaS services is expected as a result of this change. 

 

Customers with legacy systems dependent on RC4 are advised to update any API components used to connect to Marketo SaaS APIs in order to support other secure protocols and cyphers such as AES, 3DES, or ECDHE .

 

If you encounter any issues please contact Marketo Customer Support.

Back when I taught corporate training classes, there would always be someone in my Microsoft Front Page or Adobe Dreamweaver class asking "Awwww, do I HAVE to learn HTML?"

 

I explain the relationship between HTML and front end design programs like this: If you come to me to take a class on Microsoft Word, I'm going to assume you know how to read and write. If you don't know how to read and write, learning Word will not help you!

 

Front end editors such as what you see in Marketo and tools like Front Page and Dreamweaver are fantastic and they do a lot of the grunt work for you, but if you don't really know what's going on behind the scenes you can get hurt when things don't work out the way you expect. It's even more important now that Marketo features like Guided Landing Page templates pretty much require HTML knowledge to use and customize them fully.

 

I have to be honest, back in the early 90s I didn't know that I wanted to learn HTML either. I had done a lot with computers by then, the world wide web was just getting started and people were talking about this "HTML thing" and my reaction was "I don't know, do I really want to learn one more thing?" Now, here I am writing tutorials!

 

So how do you get started? Way, way back in the day I picked up an excellent book called "The HTML Manual of Style" by Larry Aronson. The fourth edition appears to be the latest and greatest covering HTML 5 and CSS. I'm not sure of the rules for posting external links here, but you can find it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and most good physical bookstores.

 

If you prefer a free way to get started, the one we recommend internally to Marketo staff is the W3Schools:

 

W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

 

They offer a comprehensive program to take you through the basics of HTML, to more complicated stuff like CSS and all the way up to actual Javascript JQuery, Json, Ajax, all that good stuff.

 

For the W3Schools I always suggest start at the beginning! Don't worry about CSS until you finish the HTML stuff, it will only confuse you. Similarly do Javascript after the CSS section.

It's Broke.  Fix it!

If you submit a support case and tell us something is broken, we are ready to jump to take care of it for you, but before we jump, it would be great to have a general idea of what we are going to jump into.  The adage, "The devils in the detail" are no where more right than in submitting a case to our support team.  A few things to consider before you hit the submit button:

 

  • What action where you trying to perform?
  • What error messages are you receiving?
  • What steps do you perform to re-create the error?
  • Screenshots to show the errors
  • Links to any assets associated with your case
  • Exact names of any Programs, Campaigns, Forms, or Fields
  • URLs for any external pages that are part of the issue

 

Our team may still come back to you with questions, but they will likely be more specific and targeted on what the solution could be.

 

Be Sure to Learn Well Grasshopper...

Our support engineers will do their best to work on resolving your problems, provide you some instruction on how to do something in Marketo, they might even go the extra mile to assist you in diagnosing some problems due to custom work that you may have done, but something our team isn't really in a position to do is to tell you, how you should be using Marketo.  We have a lot of other great teams at Marketo that we can direct you to if you have questions like that.  Be sure to leverage all the resources Marketo offers to maximize your journey towards your goals.
