Back to Home: PHP FormMail Generator I Need Help : Ask Question Without Registration

Variables for Email Subject and Message
  • admin March 2011
    Question:

    Implementation and use of the generator was childsplay! Very
    awesome generator, extremely useful if you need a form and need it fast,
    therefore cofffee + i will be recommending this to friends.


    In terms of feedback, the only thing that i somewhat missed is an option to put form variables in the mail's subject line.
    For
    example i just used your generator to generate an e-mail form for
    people to fill out if they are going to be at a certain student party. 

    It would be nice if you could somehow have; #somevariable# #someothervariable# with student number #yetanothervariable# would like to be at the party!

    Greetings,


    Kevin


    Answer
    :

    All the form field values can be used for email subject line and body of the email message, both for the email you receive and the auto-response email.

    The format of the field name is field_N. The N starts from 0. For example, you have 3 fields in the form,  the field names in the form will be field_0, field_1, field_2. If you want to control every field value in the email message, you can use %field_N% format. The %field_N% will be replaced with its value when the form submitted.
