[resolved] "Contact Form 7 for different recipients" (5 posts)

    Hi Takayuki!

    Found this plugin through the Dashboard search for a new Plugin. Your name is listed as the creator. (You wrote that it wasn't one of yours...)

    Please try searching for the exact title above.

    =========

    What I am looking for is the ability to allow the form submitter to choose an email from a list of potential destinations, as is offered by some other form plugins.

    I had hoped that this add-on would do the trick.

    Do you have a solution for this?

    Many thanks
    Peter

    As I wrote, I'm not the creator of the Contact Form 7 for different recipients plugin. The real owner of it, peachepe, copied my Contact Form 7 to make it (this is not a problem though) and used my name as its contributor without asking. I have asked him to remove my name from it for a few months, but he hasn't taken action so far. I don't think he did it with bad intentions, but it's very confusing for users.

    As the "Contact Form 7 for different recipients" copies whole Contact Form 7 package, you can't use them at the same time. You should uninstall the "Contact Form 7 for different recipients" then install Contact Form 7.

    What I am looking for is the ability to allow the form submitter to choose an email from a list of potential destinations, as is offered by some other form plugins.

    Maybe this is what you are looking for.

    Takayuki, how do you create option groups, within Selectable Recipient with Pipes? Example:

    Northern Territory
    - Manager (manager_north@domain.com)
    - Sales (sales_north@domain.com)
    - Support (support_north@domain.com)

    Southern Territory
    - Manager (manager_south@domain.com)
    - Sales (sales_south@domain.com)
    - Support (support_south@domain.com)

    Western Territory
    - Manager (manager_west@domain.com)
    - Sales (sales_west@domain.com)
    - Support (support_west@domain.com)

    Here is an HTML breakdown of what I am trying to achieve:

    <select name="recipient" id="recipient">
    <option selected="selected" value>Choose One</option>
    <optgroup label="Northern Territory">
    <option value="1">Manager</option>
    <option value="2">Sales</option>
    <option value="3">Support</option>
    </optgroup>
    <optgroup label="Southern Territory">
    <option value="4">Manager</option>
    <option value="5">Sales</option>
    <option value="6">Support</option>
    </optgroup>
    <optgroup label="WesternTerritory">
    <option value="7">Manager</option>
    <option value="8">Sales</option>
    <option value="9">Support</option>
    </optgroup>
    </select>

    ETC... the nice thing about <optgroup> tag is that it cannot be selected in the drop down. Therefore, a user would not be able to choose "western territory" from the list.

    Thanks,
