    Not at this time, but there's a filter coming to the Pro version that will let you add it back if you want to.

    That would be great! I need to be able to include agreement information so folks remember what they agreed to. Great plug-in overall though. Thanks!

    Ok thank you

    I was using the version 1.8 until yesterday and the instructions field name was not included in the email.

    I usually print the form and without the instructions field name is just one sheet with them two

    Thanks, pro user is coming ;)

    Do you have an idea of when you will be releasing the next version? Also in the mean time do you have any suggestions as to how we could possibly work around this in the mean time?

    Does the update you released yesterday include the new filter you discussed above? If so how is it used?

    All Hooks are listed on the website. There is sample code for just about all of them.

    So I finally had a chance to look at the Hooks and Filters page and I don't seem to be able to find the correct filter/hook to allow the instruction field to show up. Could you let me know which one it is?

    Thanks!

    Apologies. The new hooks were still in draft.

    Here is the hook you need: vfb_removed_field_types

    Thanks for the link! So I looked through the files. I cant seem to get the hook to work (i am using VFB Pro). Am I correct when I assume it goes in email.php? I found in email.php on line 424 where I thought it should go but it doesnt work.

    The sample code goes in your theme's functions.php file.

    Okay! I added the sample code to my themes function.php but the instructions field didnt show up. I'm using VFB Pro Version 2.3. This version does support the new filter correct? Also I did try it using a different theme and it still didnt work.

    So after troubleshooting this issue somemore I found that the plugin didn't update properly. I have since set it up on a test site and added the filter.

    This time it showed me the instructions field but only shows the label and doesnt show the text in the instructions field.

    Any thoughts?

    I am also having this problem! I have VFB Pro and tried to enter this code into the functions.php file for my theme but it is not working. :( I see the label name (i.e., Tenant Understanding), but not the description of the instructions field.

    I need the ENTIRE instructions field to show up in the emails because the user has to check that they understand the text for legal matters and it is required by law.

    I love your plugin, it makes it so easy to create forms, especially ones like THIS (really LONG resident application), however, I need to get this to work or else I have to find something else.

    Please HELP! Thanks Matthew! :D
