    I am trying to use the contact form as a means for users to submit stories and tributes to my site. I'm stuck on how all the information on the form can be emailed to me, not just the main message text?

    This is the code:

    <p>Your full name (required)
    [text* your-name] </p>

    <p>Email address (required)
    [email* your-email] </p>

    <p>Title of your story
    [text your-subject] </p>

    <p>Type of pet
    [checkbox checkbox-620 exclusive "Dog" "Cat" "Rabbit" "Hamster" "Guinea Pig" "Fish" "Other"]

    <p>Write your story here (max 500-800 words)
    [textarea your-message] </p>

    <p>Upload a photo (optional)
    [file file-611 filetypes:JPG|or|GIF]

    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    Hope I make sense, thanks for your help!!

    Perhaps you don't include necessary tags in your Mail fields? Check out the FAQ first, please.

    Nothing shows up in the email, even after adding a tag to the form! How can I include a new field’s input in the email?

    is there a way to use the Contact Form 7 so people can submit guest content that get saved as drafts posts in the blog?

    Place this in the "Message Body" section of Contact Form 7. Also make sure that the "Use HTML content type" is selected:

    <p>Your full name (required)
    [your-name] </p>

    <p>Email address (required)
    [your-email] </p>

    <p>Title of your story
    [your-subject] </p>

    <p>Type of pet
    [checkbox-620]

    <p>Write your story here (max 500-800 words)
    [your-message] </p>

    <p>Upload a photo (optional)
    [file-611]

    Also make sure that you have the correct email address in the "To" box and make sure to check your junk box...
