    I'm using your contact form on a few of my clients WordPress sites and when I fill out the form and hit submit it is sent to my Email inbox. But in the inbox all i get is "[your message]" not the contents of the fields. What could I have done wrong.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, I have the same problem...I added several fields to the contact form but don't manage to have them attached in the e-mail that is sent. I read the FAQ and it says to add the tags (only second part of the tag with my field) to the email field. but I don't really understand what the mean by: "

    You need to add a new tag to the Mail fields. This tag should correspond to the tag in the Form you wish to include in the email. Thus, when you add a new form tag such as [text your-new-field], the corresponding email tag would be [your-new-field]. Only the second part of the tag (”your-new-field”, in this case) is needed for the email.

    thank you!!!!!

    ok, I finally understood how to have the information displayed in the e-mail...simply ad the tag in the message body deleting the first part of the code but, the only one I am not able to have displayed is the one with a "select" tag. meaning I have a menu where the user has to choose Yes or NO and the original tag generated is [select book "Sì" "No"] but I don't know how to modify it to be placed in the e-mail.

    There has to be a simple answer to this issue. I am having the same problems as the messages above. For some reason I can't get the form to submit the email with the content of the form (Name, Organization, Phone Number).

    I have read the FAQ but the directions seem obscure.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    In the "form" section I have
    Your Name
    [text* your-name]

    Your Organization
    [text* YourOrganization]

    Your Phone Number
    [text* YourPhoneNumber]

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    In the "Message body:" section I have
    [text your-name]
    [text YourOrganization]
    [text YourPhoneNumber]

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    The answer is simply this...

    If my form code is this:

    <p>Your Name<br />
        [text* your-name] </p>
    
    <p>Your Email<br />
        [email* your-email] </p>
    
    <p>Subject<br />
        [text* your-subject] </p>
    
    <p>Your Message<br />
        [textarea your-message] </p>
    
    <p>Band/Musician Name:<br />
    [text band-name]</p>
    
    <p>Band Website/MySpace etc.<br />
    [text url]</p>
    
    <p>Main Band Contact E-Mail<br />
    [email* main-contact]</p>
    
    <p>MP3 URL's (direct link to the mp3 files):<br />
    <i>Use this option if you have many MP3's<br />MP3 files must be uploaded to a server like <a href="http://fileden.com/" target=_blank>fileden.com</a> or your own website server.<br />Example: http://yourwebsite.com/folder/song.mp3</i><br />
    [text song-url1]<br />
    [text song-url2]<br />
    [text song-url3]<br />
    [text song-url4]<br />
    [text song-url5]</p>
    
    <p>Allow to post on CarrieRawks.com<br />
    [radio radio-974 "Yes" "No"]</p>
    
    <p>We don't like spam, so enter the stuff you see in the image below!<br />
    [captchac captcha-64 size:l]<br />
    [captchar captcha-64]</p>
    
    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    Then the email I receive is coded like this in the Message Body area of the settings for Contact Form 7:

    Name: [your-name]
    
    Contact: [your-email]
    
    Message: [your-message]
    
    Band/Musician Name: [band-name]
    
    Band Website/MySpace etc.: [url]
    
    Main Band Contact: [main-contact]
    
    MP3 URL's: [song-url1]
    [song-url2]
    [song-url3]
    [song-url4]
    [song-url5]
    
    Post on CarrieRawks.com: [radio-974]

    Hope that helps you all understand how to get the information in the email sent to you. :-P Have fun!

    That was perfect. I think the simple code you pasted was the exact guide many on these message boards are looking for.

    Thanks a million!
